About me

Hello I'm Rachel - Sometimes in life we encounter difficulties and struggle to make sense of things, at times like these it can be helpful to talk to someone. Counselling offers a confidential relationship where people can reconnect with themselves. In this safe place people can begin to put their thoughts and feelings into words, opening up new perspectives on experiences, allowing people to move forward towards positive change.

What matters most: our work together will help you to become clearer about what matters most to you, uncover a truer sense of who you are and what gives real meaning and satisfaction in your life. Together we can explore the challenges that you experience, the choices you make and the recurring patterns you would like to change. I aim to help people improve the quality of their lives by promoting self-awareness and understanding, by identifying and addressing any unhelpful behavioural patterns, thoughts and feelings.

I have a wealth of experience of working with grief, bereavement and losses and significant experience of working with anxiety, stress, anger issues, depression, trauma, relationship issues.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP). I am committed to upholding their professional standards and abiding by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I hold full professional indemnity insurance.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
