Psychotherapy Training and Accreditation

She also holds a Higher Diploma and MA in Women’s Studies from University College Dublin.  She is a fully accredited psychotherapist and clinical supervisor with the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (MIAHIP).

Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach

Rachel follows a therapeutic model which respects every person as being individual and unique. Often life experiences and situations are similar; however for each person the emotional impact can be different and often causes considerable confusion, chaotic feelings and obsessional thoughts.

“As a Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist I draw on whatever approach is appropriate to suit individual needs and presenting emotional states”.

Rachel believes that the aim of Psychotherapy is to help a person understand what makes them feel anxious, depresses, overwhelmed, angry etc, while also learning to accept the various and unique aspects of themselves within the life that they live.

Having the ability to identify difficult feelings and negative thoughts often helps a person to become better at coping with difficult experiences / situations and can help a person learn how to take control of their life.

Counselling Experience and Areas of Interest

Rachel has had the privilege of working with clients from diverse backgrounds for a number of years. She has a special interest in ‘equality’ – that all human beings deserve to feel equal and thus be allowed to reach their true potential.

She is interested in the negative impact experienced from a person feeling emotionally overwhelmed due to issues of gender, sexuality, age, class and ethnicity.

She has a continued interest in Attachment Theory and Object Relations along with the Ethical standards within the work of Psychotherapy.
