About me

Hi my name is Rachel, thank you for taking the time to visit my page, I do appreciate this can be a daunting and overwhelming experience, however I am an empathic warm therapist that can hopefully help to put your mind at ease.  I will be happy to facilitate your personal journey in helping you to find the right therapy for you.  I offer a non-judgemental, confidential environment where you will have the opportunity to explore any difficulties within your life which may be holding you back. My Counselling Journey began whilst working for the Samaritans. In my 3yrs there, I supported callers who were experiencing issues relating to: sexual abuse, rape, depression, anxiety, suicide, drug abuse, alcohol and debt. As a Counsellor and Psychological wellbeing Practitioner I have a wide range of experience in working with depression, anxiety, phobias, loss and bereavement. I see myself as a person centred therapist with an integrative approach, providing support to help my clients resolve or adapt to their long standing or current problems . I currently work for the NHS and have experience of counselling in Schools, the Criminal Justice System, working with Refugees and the Mental Health Sector.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am very proud to announce that In April 2012 Therapy4u was awarded The New Salford Business award from Salford 100 Business Venture for being one of the most innovative new business ideas in Salford for 2012.

I have experience of fundraising and have appeared in Lancashire life after raising money for the Samaritans.

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.
