Many reasons to choose counselling
Many people bring past expectations and experiences into their present relationships and this may lead to feelings of being misunderstood, unheard, and of loneliness. You might need to find a new balance after a time of crisis, or perhaps rekindle the spark in a good relationship that no longer feels quite right. You might be aware of repeating arguments and a sense of “here we go again” with no resolution, or beginning to see repeating patterns emerge but not be sure how to change. These are just a few of the many reasons people decide to seek counselling.
As an individual or a couple, coping with anxiety, depression, grief, feeling stuck or dealing with a crisis, this an opportunity to gain insight into yourself and others. Counselling provides a safe environment to discover new perspectives, access inner resources and have the confidence to address change.
I'm Rachel, and I'd be your counsellor
I am a Relate trained counsellor experienced at working with both couples and individuals.
I offer a down-to-earth, forward thinking, non-directive approach. I endeavour to create a warm, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship where we can focus on you and your situation. I will work with you to find an understanding of your concerns, your deeper needs and how they are affecting your relationships.
I have worked with a wide range of problems including communication difficulties, anxiety, depression, divorce, affairs, self esteem, grief, issues of trust, difficulties with the wider family, cultural differences, and changes in the relationship such as a new baby, illness, retirement and many more. I have worked with clients from the LGBT community and from diverse backgrounds.
I have a level 5 Diploma in Relationship Counselling, 5 years experience with the Samaritans, a BA (Hons) languages degree, and continue to work with Relate in Leeds in addition to private practice. I maintain significant Continuing Professional Development (CPD) including recent courses in Eating Disorders, Suicide / Self-Harm, Aspergers, Solution-focused Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and Narrative Therapy.
