Hi, I’m Rachel,
I am a mama, partner, daughter, sister, friend and counsellor. I am a lover of people and their stories, and believe in resilience, even when it seems impossible.
Sometimes life presents us with challenges that we didn’t ask for. This can feel unfair, and navigating our struggles can feel overwhelming. It is not lost on me the strength that it takes to seek help, and I find myself humbled by my client’s bravery. My own life experience, academics, as well as my background working in neurosciences, has shown me that although knowledge is essential, the power of human connection forms a strong foundation for change. I have experience working with many needs, from a variety of frameworks. However, above all else, I believe in the importance of providing my client’s with a safe therapeutic environment in which to share.
I work from a variety of frameworks including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Somatic Integration, Exposure and Response Prevention and Emotion Focused Therapy. Most importantly, I work from a Person-Centered approach…one that fits you.
I believe you know yourself better than anyone; sometimes you just need support discovering and accessing your true self.
