About me

Hello, my name is Rachael. I’ve lived in various areas of Gloucestershire my whole life. I love the countryside and the scenery here. I love reading and watching films. I enjoy TV programmes about vintage collectors and I have my own online shop selling vintage items all over the world. I have two young children, a boy and a girl, and I love taking them out and having fun.

Training Qualifications and Experience

I have a Diploma in Counselling from Gloucestershire College and I work with young people and adults.

Therapies offered

My counselling training was Integrative, using Person-Centred approach alongside Psychodynamic theory, but I use techniques and strategies from various other models. I am committed to ongoing training to ensure that I stay up to date with the latest counselling techniques and research.

I believe in the power of relationship: building a relationship where trust and acceptance facilitate open communication about the things that are troubling you. I am committed to helping you explore your difficult feelings and experiences to find a way to feel better and experience life differently.

Membership of Professional Body

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy www.bacp.co.uk (BACP – number 176409).

When I am available online

I work on Sunday evenings, but if someone is on holiday or can’t work because they are sick I may cover for them on other days of the week.
