RACHEL KERR BSc(Hons) MBACP Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
Counselling provides a space in which to reflect on your experience. It is a chance to talk and be deeply listened to, and to explore what comes up together with a sense of curiosity and compassion. As an Integrative Counsellor I have a range of skills and experience upon which to draw to help you through the challenges that may surface, and to pave the way for new possibilities to emerge.
I use a collaborative, relational approach which means we work together towards understanding how you relate to your specific symptoms, and in turn, how they relate to the bigger picture of your life. This process may incorporate elements of specific models of therapy, for example CBT, but is not restricted to any one way of working.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
If you would like an informal chat to discuss your options, or to arrange an initial assessment you are welcome to make contact by email or phone. If I am unable to respond immediately please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible.

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
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.
