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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
