Guiding you on the path of self-empowerment


If you have found yourself here, you are more than likely undergoing a difficult period in your life and in the process of seeking support. 

This is a brave step. 

Entering into therapy can feel like a daunting experience with so many what if's and worries but this is perfectly normal. 

How to know if therapy is right for you?

Therapy offers a non-judgemental environment where you can explore your own thoughts and feelings away from the expectation of others. People often turn to therapy because they feel isolated, unsupported or have experienced a life changing event which needs professional intervention. 

Therapy can provide you with a warm, compassionate and confidential space to talk over your worries in the aim of finding comforting resolution. 

Working together to becoming a more empowered you!


Let me introduce myself


Hello and welcome to EMPOW=R Psychotherapy. 


My name is Rachael and I am a psychotherapist in the Basildon, Essex area. 


My belief 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 am passionate about creating positive change and my aim is to provide a space to walk alongside you whilst you find the answers you 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 purely offer a space to listen 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.

I am fully insured and a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)


Areas I work in are:

Anxiety & Depression

Domestic Violence

Low Self-Esteem & Confidence
