Rachel Clark P.G. Dip Psychotherapy/Counselling, MBACP
Hi there and welcome to my profile.
I am a fully qualified and registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a friendly, calm and reassuring manner that will help you feel at ease. I can offer you a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space for you to explore your feelings. I adhere to the BACP code of ethical standards and conduct, including undertaking supervision and continuous professional development.
I am experienced working with anxiety, stress, depression, OCD, relationship problems, understanding emotions, insomnia, and anger management.
My approach to counselling is founded on working uniquely with you, exploring what feels overwhelming and working together to bring about positive and meaningful changes to your life. By reducing your stress to a manageable level and increasing your positivity we will work on helping you cope again and start enjoying every aspect of your life and relationships
Being an integrative therapist means I can use humanistic (person-centred), analytic (psychodynamic) approaches, I also use CBT (which in essence means listening/understanding your reality, how the past may have impacted your present, and to help you to build strategies to move forward so you feel more resilient).
I am working face to face at the moment. I adhere to government guidelines with my therapy room being well ventilated with two skylight windows, and chairs placed two meters apart. I also wear a face visor. I also work via Zoom video conferencing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a post graduate diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling and I am a Registered member of the BACP.
As well as having a private practice, I volunteer for a large bereavement support charity and am a qualified bereavement support specialist.
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.
