About me

Rachel is BABCP provisionally accredited and specialises in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for adults struggling with anxiety, mood and stress related difficulties. CBT is an evidence based treatment for these disorders, and due to its extensive evidence base, is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), as a first-line treatment for mental health illnesses. CBT is a type of talking treatment that focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes may affect your feelings and behaviour. The treatment focuses on coping skills for dealing with different problems.

Rachel has over 8 years of experience of working with a variety of patient groups and in a range of clinical settings including the NHS and forensic settings. Rachel has experience of working with individuals with a range of mental health difficulties, working with both adults and adolescents, she is able to draw upon a broad range of knowledge to help clients build awareness and develop skills to manage a range of emotional difficulties.

Rachel has special interest areas focusing on perinatal mental health care, CBT research within the forensic setting, and further training in individual and group supervision of practitioners within NHS settings. Rachel has also delivered workshops which focus on building awareness around mental health needs and practitioner burn-out.
