About me

About me

'Rachel gave me the space and support to explore my relationships and feelings.  I no longer feel lost as I see more clearly who I am and what I want.'

I offer online or face to face counselling, short term or open ended depending on your individual needs in Bradford on Avon and Trowbridge area.

I help people who feel overwhelmed find a healthy balance between caring for themselves and their relationships.

My approach is warm and supportive, creating a safe space where we can talk honestly and openly. I recognise that seeking counselling can be quite a step so I will be alongside you as we explore and understand your thoughts, feelings and reactions.

Your next step ...  I would encourage you to email me in the first instance, we can discuss your needs and how I can help you.  If you would prefer to talk to me, email me and I will arrange to telephone you.  We can then arrange an initial appointment.

How I work with you ...

Sessions are adapted to meet your individual needs at a pace that suits you in a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space. Exploring and gaining a better understanding of yourself is empowering and can help you to make the right decisions for you and your relationships.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I enjoy working with teenagers, exploring their anxiety, anger or confusion with how they feel.  In the current climate of uncertainty having someone to talk to and express how they feel can be hugely helpful.

Accessibility

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.
