Rachel Shepley BA (Hons) Counselling MBACP (Accred)
I am a fully qualified, BACP accredited counsellor and therapist with 18 years of client experience. I work with adults either on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.
I practice from a quiet garden therapy room in the heart of Walthamstow Village, E17 (5-10 mins walk from Walthamstow Central).
My approach is collaborative and relational, offering a confidential and safe environment in which you can explore what is difficult and causing you distress in your life. Commitment to a regular, supportive space with a counsellor can give you the opportunity to make sense of your own thoughts, feelings, ideas, relationships and behaviours. It can help facilitate the possibility of change at a pace which is led by you and in a way which can make life richer and more authentic.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed 4 years of training at the Metanoia Institute and hold a BA (Hons) / Dip Person-Centred Counselling. I have also completed a Certificate in Supervision at Metanoia.
I have significant experience in working with clients who experience anxiety, stress, panic attacks, career-crisis, work-related stress, relationship difficulties, family issues, life-transition issues, low confidence, depression, PTSD-type symptoms relating to trauma including sexual violence (recent or historic).
In addition to my private practice I have worked as a counsellor within a university and GP’s surgery and as a counsellor, supervisor, trainer and clinical assessor for community counselling services such as MIND.
