2020 has been quite a year hasn’t it and I wonder how you are coping?
I wouldn’t be surprised if you like so many other people this year were managing increased levels of anxiety, low mood or experiencing changes in your relationships or feeling lonely and isolated. Whatever you may be feeling right now, it’s OK to feel, it’s also OK if some days are better than others.
How Can I Help?
My name is Rachel and I am an integrative counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist and I understand that sometimes life can feel like a constant uphill struggle, the smallest things that wouldn’t normally bother you do, especially this year, you feel like things are getting on top of you and you’d like to hit the pause button, have space to breathe and take a rest from it all.
Maybe you struggle with anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, or finding the stresses and strains of daily life too much? Is this negatively impacting relationships in your life or causing problems with your sleep? Have you experienced a difficult life event that you are struggling to deal with that is keeping you stuck and impacting your emotional wellbeing?
If any or all of these things resonate with you then counselling can give you the tools you need to start to repair these issues and start living the life that you deserve.
I am here to help you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a way that might not be possible with friends or family so that you can start to make sense of these feelings and create positive change in your life. I offer a non-judgmental, safe, and confidential space in which you can talk openly about any aspects of your life.
Together we can explore how to get you to a place where life’s ups and downs feel manageable instead of overwhelming.
Your journey to a happier you starts today.
A Little About Me
As I mentioned above, I am an integrative counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
What is integrative? This means that I can adapt the way I work with clients. As human beings, we can be pretty complex creatures and I don’t see therapy as a one size fits all so my training allows me to adapt the way I work to fit individuals needs.
I embarked on my counselling training due to a life event that impacted myself and my family and experiencing the positive impact therapy had for all of us. That experience lit a fire in me and sparked a desire to help others.
Since qualifying in 2014 I have been involved with several services in and around the Doncaster area, currently working with Rotherham Abuse Counselling Service but I have also been involved with Doncaster Drug and Alcohol Services and M25 Homeless Shelter as well as my Private Practice.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Membership number (378408), The National Council for Hypnotherapy and a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I hold an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Certificate and have full insurance.
I understand that choosing a counsellor may feel scary and that you want to get it right so if you have any questions or would like a brief telephone call to discuss working together I am more than happy. Call, text or email to arrange.
Due to current social restrictions and understanding the impact, this will have on peoples mental health I am offering both online counselling via Zoom (a link will be sent by email or text) or telephone counselling to help and support people through these unprecedented times.

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.
