Rachel Phillips

Calmer Chameleon Consultancy offers quality therapeutic services to adults. I chose the chameleon as a representation of the transformation that is possible through therapy:

  • discover and enhance your strengths
  • work on areas you find challenging
  • find out what you really want from life
  • take the opportunity to change

To be mentally healthy, we need the flexibility to adapt to our environments while maintaining and celebrating our core identity. Chameleons are the ultimate example of environmental flexibility: they demonstrate what can be possible for all of us.

My name is Rachel Phillips, and I have nearly thirty years experience in providing psychotherapy in a wide variety of settings including the NHS, large corporations, Relate and Higher Education.

This website explains the various services I can provide, and how each one might be of help to you:

I’ve also provided the answers to some frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to know more, contact me for a chat about what you’re looking for and whether I can help. If I think someone else might be able to support you more effectively, I’ll let you know and help you find the right therapist from my wide network of colleagues in Nottinghamshire.

Special interests

I have nearly thirty years experience of providing therapy for all kinds of people from all walks of life. Over the last decade I have gained a great deal of experience in working with adults with autistic spectrum conditions (Asperger Syndrome) and with LGBT clients. It is common for people in these groups to have a poor experience of therapy due to limited understanding of their perspectives in the healthcare profession. My approach is to adapt therapy based on listening to your needs and working in partnership with you.

Where we are

I usually see clients at Hamilton House, 9 Hucknall Road, Nottingham NG5 1AE. It is well-served with bus routes from Nottingham and Mansfield, within walking distance of the tram line, and there is plenty of nearby parking. I am based on the second floor and there is no lift, but I can book an alternative room with disabled access if you would find that a problem.
