Hello, I'm Rachael. I have a warm, down to earth approach and I can offer you my empathy, support and kindness. I want to listen and validate the difficult emotions you are experiencing. I provide a secure place, where you will be able to talk about your thoughts and feelings in confidence, without the fear of being judged. I know the thought of having counselling can be daunting, but I will help you to feel comfortable and relaxed. All my clients and their issues are extremely important to me, so there is no such thing as a client or an issue being ‘unimportant,’ or a problem being too ‘minor’. The sessions are all about you...
If you are feeling overwhelmed by your feelings, I would really like to help you move forward. Counselling can help you to connect to your real thoughts and feelings and alter your outlook on life. Gaining a new perspective could help you to accept yourself, make decisions and help to challenge negative beliefs and patterns of behaviour.
In my past, I gained first-hand experience of being a counselling client and I found it to be hugely inspiring and transformative. My passion and drive to become a counsellor originated from that experience and I am deeply committed to helping other people to reach their full potential and become the person they have always wanted to be.
