About me

I am Rachel and I am here to help you. I work in a non-judgemental way helping you to understand your feelings and helping you to find your way to inner peace.

Whatever you are going through right now, there is no need to go through it on your own. I am on hand to help you through this difficult time. Anxiety and depression are common, but painful and debilitating, however counselling can help reduce your pain, reduce your anxiety and lift the depression. I aim to help clients through a warm, friendly and non-judgemental approach.

Loss or bereavement can also be very painful and it can be hard to believe that you will ever feel any better, however counselling can make a very real difference.

With the current pandemic in progress, life for most of us has changed beyond recognition. I am here to help you as you face these changes which may or may not have exacerbated any existing or underlying difficulties you are already experiencing.

I have experience working with people suffering from a wide range of difficulties including Anxiety, Depression, Low self-esteem, Low self-confidence, Loss and bereavement, Poor health, Relationship problems, Anger related issues and Workplace difficulties.

I have also had experience as a qualified nurse in an intensive care setting giving me an understanding of how sickness, illness and bereavement affect people. I have also had a lot of experience of older people and the problems they go through.
