Hi, welcome to my profile. I'm Rhianna and I'm a Person-Centred Therapist.
At the moment I work with clients online via Skype and I am hoping to be back in my office in September 2020.
I tend to work with clients experiencing anxiety and depression.
Previous clients have told me that I am easy to talk to, they feel comfortable around me and they enjoy working with me. I really enjoy working with my clients to help them understand themselves better. I enjoy working to understand others.
When I was training to be a counsellor I went to therapy myself. So here is a little bit about my journey with anxiety.
I was always anxious when I was growing up. I always thought it was something that I had to fight against and overcome on my own. I found out through studying, reading and seeing my own person-centred counsellor that what I needed to do was find out what my anxiety was trying to do for me, what purpose was it trying to serve and where did it come from. Once I uncovered that information I gradually became less anxious and more excited about life because I understood myself better and could make more sense out of my reactions and behaviour.
Now my life is a lot more enjoyable and less stressful, if I ever feel anxiety I can understand why and I am able to resolve the situation. Now I can enjoy myself and I have a lot more hobbies.
If you would like to meet with me please phone/text or send an email and we can arrange a time and a day that is suitable for both of us.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
And if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

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.

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).
