Rachel R. Landau Reg. MBACP (Accred), UKCP
For all of us there are times when life becomes difficult. I have over 15 years of experience working in this field and feel passionate about this work after repeatedly seeing how therapy has helped change lives for the better.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where any issue can be explored at your individual pace. In this space, understanding and making sense of your experience will allow change to take place.
Training, qualifications & experience
I originally qualified as a Counsellor in 2004 with an Advanced Diploma In Therapeutic Counselling and have been working in private practice ever since. I completed a Certificate in Systemic Practice in 2005 and due to my wish to help my clients get to the roots of their difficulties, in December 2018, after a 9 year course, I qualified as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees are between £90 - £120 per session, depending on the session time. If you would like to book a session you can send a text or phone leaving a voicemail and I will return your call to arrange a short phone conversation.
Initially I tend to see clients for a block of 3 sessions. This will then give us an opportunity to see whether we are right for each other.
