Hello. I am Rachel. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I assist individuals with their psychological health.

What to Expect

An initial assessment session enables you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment session in Anstey, Leicester or Leicester.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which issue regarding your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious meaning of the issues you experience. It facilitates you in becoming aware of aspects of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-understanding to give you choices.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends psychodynamic therapy for anorexia nervosa, depression, self harm and social anxiety disorder.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your thoughts, emotions and significant moments in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or find appropriate methods of coping.
