"Hello, how are you?"
So often we answer this question mindlessly... but what if we didn't?
What would happen if we took a moment to consider how we really feel? How would it be to talk to someone who really cares and wants to listen to a true response?
I'm Rachel; a BACP registered, fully insured, person-centred counsellor. I am a calm, welcoming and understanding person who will listen, accept and walk alongside you as you take the first steps towards getting help.
I have worked with individuals struggling with a vast range of issues including; depression, anxiety, OCD, bereavement, eating disorders, family difficulties, friendship problems, lack of confidence and self-esteem challenges. Whatever you choose to bring I can promise to do my absolute best to help.
I have lots of experience, especially working with adolescents and young adults. I provide a comfortable, non-judgemental and safe environment, which allows for a trusting working relationship to develop.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic at present; I am currently working remotely through telephone/ video call sessions.
I understand that picking a counsellor can feel nerve-racking and so I offer a free, non-obligation, 20-minute consultation for us to have a chat and for you to ask me any questions you might have.

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.
