Rachel Taylor MBACP Registered(Accred) Cert CBT RGN
Life brings its challenges and with this can sometimes come confusion, despair, depression and anxiety. With a lifetime of experience in caring professions, first as a nurse and now an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist I feel blessed with the ability to help people. I offer a kind, supportive and practical place for my clients to explore any problem and successfully help them to find resolution. My personal aims are to help people to grow into the person they want to be and help them find a happier and more fulfilling life.
The main basis for all my work is to create a supportive, understanding relationship with you. That means a relationship where you are able to feel comfortable to be yourself. This is the bedrock of all my counselling. Because I have had a life of caring for people this is something that is natural for me. it is incredibly important when someone is in a vulnerable situation, such as attending counselling, that they feel cared for.
My work is influenced from a broad background of theory, which I constantly update. I am also qualified in CBT and am now training in EMDR. I am also extremely interested in the new theory based around neuroscience, which is helping uncover ways for people to change unhelpful behaviour.
I am a highly experienced counsellor with 18 years experience. As an Accredited Member of the BACP I will ensure high professional standards. My work is all closely monitored and shows very successful outcomes. This success means that many of my clients come to me from GP referrals and other recommendations, such as medical insurers.
I have a qualification in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which is currently deemed an effective therapy for helping people with emotional difficulties. EMDR is particularly helpful in removing trauma of any kind. Since most emotional problems are related to some sort of trauma this is a very valuable tool.
