Rachel Louise Olney BSc, MBACP
I am a person centred counsellor and have 17 years of experience of working within the voluntary sector, giving me the opportunity to work with a diverse client group and a wide range of issues. In addition to my private practice I work as a supervisor and counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care and Nottingham Counselling Service.
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.
A more satisfying life: my aim is to help you explore how you can best be yourself.
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 you 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. 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 am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP)
