Rachel Rogers M.A, BSc (Hons), PGCert, MBPsS, MBACP (accred)
Sometimes life gets tough and we may need someone in our corner to help us through.
Challenging life events (such as bereavement, relationship difficulties, losses, work pressures, stress and significant life changing events) can impact on our emotional wellbeing. Mental health difficulties (such as anxiety, phobias, depression, bipolar) can make life more of a challenge. I have 16 years experience of helping people with all of the above across a variety of services including the NHS, I currently work in private practice and a police treatment unit.
I offer a range of evidence based therapies (short and longer term) recommended for mental health and emotional difficulties such as Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma focused CBT, Counselling and brief focused therapies.
Making changes and engaging in therapy can be a big step to take, I believe that therapy is something done with someone and not to someone and will work flexibly to help you address your concerns successfully.
For some people simply getting to therapy can be hard, therefore I also work per video link (or telephone if preferred) which means sessions are accessible from almost anywhere.
This option is very helpful for people such as new mums, people with irregular childcare, mobility or transport problems, or shift workers who cannot commit to a particular time slot. It can also help make therapy more affordable and achievable by reducing time spent off work or in traffic. Life can be hard enough, therapy shouldn't complicate matters!

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.
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.
