Rachel Lane MBACP Accred.
I offer short term counselling and long term psychotherapy to people from all walks of life.
I work with private individuals, referrals from GP practices, EAPs and referrals from various organisations wishing to provide support for their staff.
I offer clinical supervision to qualified counsellors and counsellors in training.
Whether you are seeking to focus on a specific life crisis, or whether you wish to explore other long standing issues, I offer a safe space for you to come and talk about whatever is troubling you.
Training, qualifications & experience
With a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, I am a qualified and experienced therapist and clinical supervisor, and I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and Accredited BACP Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
I trained and worked with Gloucestershire Counselling Service and was a Counsellor with Gloucestershire SHARE Young People's Counselling Service, with young people ages 11-25, and counselling with children in a Special School for children with special educational needs.
I have worked in retail, in admin, in management, in equal opportunities, and in social care.
I have over 17 years experience working with adults from all walks and stages of life.
I am passionate about the work I do, and I know personally the benefits of experiencing a professional therapeutic relationship, and how it can transform the way we think, live and relate to others.
I attend regular workshops, conferences and trainings, consolidating my initial training and experience and keeping updated with the latest research.
Psychodynamic therapists are required to have therapy in training, and accordingly, I have been in therapy over a number of years during training and beyond. This is an important element in the training of a psychodynamic therapist. Only by having worked with and in our own mind processes can we safely and ethically offer to accompany another.
I believe there is no "one size fits all" in therapy. I am interested in psychoanalytic theory and attachment theory, and I believe that along with our inherent nature, we are shaped by our experiences particularly in early childhood.
I work with a variety of people from various backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations. I've worked with divorce and separation issues, trauma, depression and anxiety, and the difficulties of creative people, artists, performers and musicians, as well as those of high-flying business personnel.
Contact begins with a two-way-assessment so that both sides are comfortable about working together. I abide by the Ethical Framework and Code of Conduct of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP.
