About the author

Blog author; Nottingham; Counsellor; counselling; Cognitive Behavioural Therapist; CBT; cognitive behavioural therapy

Hi, I'm Rachel. As an experienced psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer, I love to convey ideas and concepts. I have a deep desire to understand what people are going through and to offer help and support if I can.

If you want me to blog about a particular subject or want further information on any of the blogs here, please get in touch.
