About me

Struggling with life's issues, feeling low, anxious or, not sure where to go next with a particular problem?  Sometimes talking things through with an objective person can really help.  This is where counselling, or therapy, comes in. I'm Rachel Eggleton and I've been working with clients at my practice in the Forest of Dean for the last few years.  Whether it's short term more focussed therapy or longer term support that you need, I believe that counselling offers an opportunity to find the inner resources and resilience to help us feel better and more able to deal with life's challenges.I have a particular interest in, and experience, in working with women and men who are struggling with issues related to pregnancy such as miscarriage, stillbirth, traumatic birth, infertility and so on. The loss of a child, at any stage of pregnancy, can be unlike any other grief and people often feel that their pain is invisible to others. Having the time and space to talk at your own pace can be very beneficial to the grieving process.

My main theoretical approach is person centred which explores people's beliefs about themselves and the world around them. Sometimes our beliefs can hold us back or negative beliefs can be reinforced by traumatic events such as bereavement so, I offer a warm, accepting space in which to explore those beliefs and gently challenge them.

The counselling relationship is vitally important and I work with each client in the way that is best for them.

I have a comfortable counselling room in Vantage Point Business Village in Mitcheldean, half an hour drive from Gloucester.  There is free parking and a waiting area.

Member organisations


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.

Further information

"Counselling has helped me gain a better understanding of the extreme emotions I've dealt with recently and has allowed me to unpick why I was feeling so low. Rachel is an excellent counsellor who skilfully supported my journey and gave me a safe space to work through the difficulties I was experiencing"

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.
