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.
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 member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) www.bacp.co.uk and work within their ethical framework of good practice; providing a safe, friendly, confidential and professional service.
