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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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.
