What Is Therapy?

Guiding You On the Path of Self-Empowerment

If you have found yourself here, you are more than likely going through a difficult period in your life and looking to seek some support. Entering in to therapy can seem like a daunting experience but it does not have to be.

How to know if therapy is right for you? 

Sometimes in life we experience a multitude of difficulties and can find ourselves feeling isolated and alone. Therapy offers a non-judgemental environment where you can explore and work through these difficulties in a confidential setting that is founded by a warm, compassionate and empathic approach.

Whatever your end goal for therapy may be, with the use of various psychotherapy methods, we can work together to becoming a more empowered you!


Let me introduce myself...


Firstly, thank you for taking the time to explore my website. My name is Rachael and I am a psychotherapist in the Basildon, Essex area.

My aim as a therapist: 

I am a believer that the therapeutic relationship can be one of the most intimate relationships that one can have; with this in mind I would like to share a little about me before you decide to embark on your journey with me.

I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives from a very young age. This interest led me to study a BA in Counselling & Psychotherapy which resulted in obtaining a job working with bereaved children. 

I hold a passion for walking alongside my clients in their time of despair and work diligently to help them find the answers they seek. Since 2019, I have worked with a variety of clientele from adults to adolescents within a secondary school. 

How I work:

I am what you call a Humanistic therapist, therefore I am not here to advise you or tell you what to do; you have the answers and I'll walk alongside you until those answers become a little clearer. 

I love to work creatively, using a variety of interventions and tools. However, if creative therapy is not for you we can tailor the sessions to fit your specific needs.

Fully insured and registered with the BACP.


Areas I work in are:

Anxiety & Depression

Domestic Violence

Low Self-Esteem & Confidence
