Rachael Misiuda MA, BSc Hons, MBACP
Hi there. I am here to listen and help you make sense of your story, whatever it may be. In the process of telling and being heard, your life can be transformed and healed. You need not suffer alone.
'There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you' - Maya Angelou
I am a psychodynamically trained, counsellor and psychotherapist, working short term and long term, dependent on the client's requirements and wishes. I provide a safe and confidential space for people to de-stress and reconnect when life becomes overwhelming, by working to help gain greater insight into behaviour patterns, which can be difficult to recognise and change. These difficulties can often lead to anxiety and depression and cause relationships to suffer.
Psychodynamic counselling can help by exploring past relationships, experience and traumas to make sense of present feelings and behaviour. Talking to a counsellor allows new ways of thinking and understanding, bringing about clarity and empowerment into your life.
I work with people of all ages and backgrounds, in short term and open ended work.
Training, qualifications & experience
MA Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy
I have experience working with students from the ages of 16 - 21, who are struggling with the stresses of modern life and the complications that may bring to an already high pressured world. I believe this is a crucial time in a person's life, to be able to understand themselves on a deeper level before the inevitable responsibilities of being an adult take over. Being able to do this kind of work at this time can see positive changes that will stay with the person for the rest of their life.
