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)
