MBACP Registered Counsellor and Addictions Specialist

About me

Hi, I'm Rachael, I'm a qualified counsellor and I'm a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Life can be very challenging at times and dealing with issues on your own can feel very isolating. For some of us, asking for help doesn't come easy but it can be life-changing to do so.

My priority is you. It's important to me that you feel safe to share your thoughts and feelings in order to change or manage your situation or issues that you come to me with. I provide a safe space where you can share what you would like to share and feel heard, understood, relaxed and comfortable.

Reaching out for help can sometimes feel so difficult. It can feel like a weakness to ask for help or pride can get in the way. Some people put it off even though they know they really need help. Having had many hours of counselling myself, I know some of the feelings related to asking for help.

I work with the following: Anxiety, depression, anger management, drug addiction, alcoholism, co-dependency, stress, low self-confidence. low self-esteem, family issues, ADHD, work related stress and more...

Along with providing face to face therapy sessions I also offer online counselling sessions. For online counselling I use Zoom. You are welcome to contact me if you have any questions, or if you are new to this style of session and would like to find out a little more.

I work with adults.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
