“I felt understood and listened to right from the first session with Rachel. I had set myself some goals for counselling which were respected and listened to, but beyond that, I was given the time and space to discover and understand aspects of myself that I hadn’t even realised were lost. I feel so much more resilient and in control and people around me have noticed a difference too. I will be forever grateful for the sessions I had and wholeheartedly would recommend Rachel’s services."
"My time with Rachel had a profound effect on my mental wellbeing. I was in a very low place when I started our sessions, she was very patient and understanding. She didn't just tell me what I needed to know, but guided me to find the issues and the solutions myself to the problems of my past. Helping me understand myself a lot better along the way, which boosted my self confidence ten fold and allowed me to accept myself for who I am.
Her help not only improved my life but the life of my family, I still keep having people tell me how positively changed I am.
I will always be grateful for my time with Rachel."
"Following redundancy at work I was diagnosed as clinically depressed and was really at rock bottom, the lowest place I have ever been in my life !!
I needed help and so decided to book some personal counselling/therapy sessions with Rachel after I was recommended her services. Initially I saw Rachel on a weekly basis and then over a 3 month period extended this to every 2 weeks then 3 weeks. I have to say that the sessions were amazing and I looked forward to every one of them as it gave me a focus and an opportunity to really let my feelings out.
Rachel was fantastic, so caring, understanding and non-judgemental and just allowed me to pour my heart out and discuss all the issues and feelings I had inside me. 5 months later I am well on the road to recovery and no longer feel the need to see Rachel although I know that if I am having a bad time I can just pick up the phone and book another session.
I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone who is feeling low or feels the need to just talk to someone that will listen and who will offer coping strategies to get you through difficult times in your life. If it wasn't for Rachel I know that I would not have been able to cope and get through my situation and I seriously doubt that I would still be here today to give this feedback if it wasn't for Rachel!"
"I cannot thank you enough for all of your help and support you have given me since losing my baby. You held my hand and walked alongside me. I am where I am today because of you. Losing my baby has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with but your help and support has given me the hope to be able to carry on."
