Hi, I'm Rachel.
I believe that we all have an innate capacity and longing to grow,
to reach our potential and express ourselves authentically.
I work with the whole-being in regard and take your environment into consideration. I am an advocate for self-compassion and healthier ways to relate to ourselves and others. I believe that under the right conditions we all can heal, grow and thrive.
I studied and completed my training at the University of Nottingham in 2013. I was inspired and intrigued about the process and practice after going through therapy during my early adult years at college. Therefore, I understand what a challenging journey it can be to move towards health, a journey that I am still devoted to.
I have witnessed first-hand the value and positive impact therapy can have on one's life as well as having witnessed many people lead better and more fufilling lives.
I have since worked with children and adults, offering both 1:1 support and facilitated groups; in schools, mental health charities and drug and alcohol recovery centres alongside my own private practice to improve their emotional and mental well-being. I am passionate about personal and professional development. I diligently dedicate time to grow my knowledge and understanding.
I am particularly interested in developmental trauma and how the lack of attunement and awareness from our caregivers during our formative early years impact our style of relating.
I'm an Accredited Professional Member of the National Counselling Society.
