Hello, I’m Rachel, a qualified person-centred counsellor and cognitive behavioural therapist.
I understand the most difficult challenge can be the thought of starting counselling and wondering how it will benefit you. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety or depression, experiencing difficulties in relationships or suffered a loss or tragedy. Whatever the reason you are looking for counselling, I would like to reassure you, you are not alone.
Within the Person-Centred approach, no advice or opinions will be offered, giving you an opportunity to gain clarity as you are supported to explore and make sense of often conflicting thoughts and feelings. I offer a warm, empathic and safe environment for you to explore your issues, doing so at your own pace, in your own time without judgements.
I will always be led by you with whatever issues you would like to explore within the session, which enables a trusting relationship to develop, which is of paramount importance for counselling to be effective and enable change within you. I passionately believe that everyone should have a safe space to be heard and acknowledged and I understand the importance of choosing the right therapist who you feel comfortable with.
I hold a BA in Counselling Studies and a diploma in Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework to ensure good practice. Continuous professional development enables me to keep up to date with training and relevant information.
I currently work in private practice at Lincs Counselling Ltd together with another therapist.
If you would like to get in touch, my contact number is 01472 564499 or you can e-mail me here.
I look forward to hearing from you,

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.
