About me

Hello, I'm Rachael. I'm a UKCP Registered Person-centred Psychotherapist.

As your therapist, my role is to actively create an accepting and respectful therapy space for you to explore and reflect upon what's most relevant for you in your life.

During our sessions, I will be alongside you in whatever you choose to bring and be guided by the pace with which you share your experiences. I’ll endeavour to sensitively and respectfully communicate my moment-to-moment empathic understanding of what might be going on for you which may help you to see yourself in new ways and with greater clarity. Communicating empathy and warmth towards you and prizing whatever you choose to share in our sessions are the cornerstones of my practice, as is responding to you with authenticity and consideration.

Taking the time to explore what’s troubling you within a therapeutic environment may help you to feel more settled within yourself and self-accepting. It may also help to develop a deeper sense of connection with others in your life and the world around you.

If you would like to talk further about therapy please feel free to contact me. Following that, we can arrange an initial session and discuss how you would like to use our time together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been in therapy practice since 2014. I hold an MSc in Contemporary Person-centred Psychotherapy and Applications from the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, London.

Over the years, I’ve been privileged to work with many clients of differing ages, genders, ethnicities, sexualities, abilities/disabilities, nationalities and social-cultural backgrounds as well as those who hold religious beliefs or no belief. Through this, I hold strong experience of working with the diverse and unique issues that bring people to therapy and the social contexts in which they live.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access


I work Monday to Friday, offering evening sessions in my Hackney practice room and daytime sessions from my Kennington practice room.
