About me

Rachel Gray is an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) working both at the General Psychology Department at Priory Hospital North London and privately in her practice on Chapel Row, Central Bath. Rachel works both face to face (in Bath) or via zoom for those living further afield.

From Rachel: When I was 11 years old, I decided that my tummy was a little too round for my liking. My regular go-to manual, the Argos catalogue, had a treadmill on offer, so I added it to my Christmas list that year. Kindly Father Christmas obliged and agreed to the gift and much to their embarrassment, my mum and my sister collected the treadmill from Argos, carrying it through Chelmsford high street balanced on their shoulders.

The treadmill was cheap and self-propelled. With no motor, it took so much leg power to get the belt moving that once it did, there was no stopping it. The terror my paunch and I suffered at the hands of the out-of-control, self-propelled treadmill, is a lasting childhood memory for me. I gave up on the treadmill after Boxing Day and tucked back into the cheese board.

When we are physically lacking fitness, going to the gym, getting a personal trainer or buying a peloton seem acceptable, depending on your budget. Mental health is no different from our physical health. There are times in life when we all need some additional help – when the self-help books or Argos treadmills don’t seem to be working. I work with my clients weekly to make significant changes to their mental health through a collaborative goal focused talking therapy approach.

Further information

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is talking therapy. Together with your therapist, you develop a treatment approach that helps you recognise negative or unhelpful thought and behaviour patterns. Together you develop more helpful ways to help you move forward. Many experts (including the national institution of clinical excellence) consider it to be the gold standard of psychotherapy.
