About me

Hello, my name is Rachel. 

I believe that Therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and express your thoughts and feelings in a safe and non-judgmental space.

To get the most out of your experience, I believe it is crucial to work collaboratively. By working together, you will start to understand your experiences, beliefs and behaviours in order to gain insight and identify patterns that may be preventing you from living your best life. 

Please scroll down to find out more about how I work or visit my Website for more information and others ways to contact me.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

What can you expect when working with me?

By working collaboratively, I hope you can gain a better understanding of yourself and create meaningful changes in your life. I'm passionate about helping people achieve their goals and live a more enriched and fulfilled life.

​I firmly believe that we all have the potential to live to our fullest, however, I am aware that we all have our own obstacles in the way of doing this. Therapy can be a place of true discovery, evolution, re-awakening and self-development.​

Counselling Therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and express your thoughts and feelings in a safe and non-judgmental space. We will work together to understand your experiences, beliefs and behaviours in order to gain insight and identify patterns that may be preventing you from living your best life.

I work relationally and I approach therapy with an awareness that you're a unique individual. This means you all have different needs therefore I work intuitively and compassionately, helping to equip you with the tools to bring about beneficial change and growth in your life.

At Flourish Well-Being, I strive to provide a safe and welcoming space for you to explore and understand your challenges, whilst I work closely with you to achieve lasting personal change in your life and to help you Flourish.

 What style/type of therapy do you use?

As an Integrative Therapist, I incorporate a range of modalities - including Person Centred, Existential, Psychodynamic, Cognitive & Behavioural therapies.

Drawing on various techniques from these different practices I can tailor an approach specifically for you. Using various modalities means I can work intuitively in the way that best suits you moment to moment, session to session.
