Rachel Mckechnie MA MBACP Accred
I offer you a space in which you can think and talk, and an opportunity to explore difficult feelings and emotions in a confidential and non-judgmental environment.
I believe by working together towards new insights, I can help you to gain a better and deeper understanding of yourself and your emotions, and to identify and deal with difficult personal anxieties and relationship issues.
My approach is psychodynamic, which means us exploring together how past experiences and relationships influence how you cope with and feel about things you are facing in the present.
As well as my private practice, I work for a charity that provides counselling services in the community. I have also worked as a counsellor for young people alongside clinical and social services teams in the NHS.
As a Member of BACP I work to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am committed to my own continuing professional development in the field.
Training, qualifications & experience
Member of BACP
Masters (MA) in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling
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.
