Rachel has a special interest in working with clients with autism spectrum conditions. She began her career in this field over 15 years ago working within the voluntary and public sectors to help people integrate within their local community. Since qualifying as a counsellor she has continued to be motivated by a desire to understand the internal worlds of autistic spectrum people and to help them feel and experience being at ease in a therapeutic setting. Rachel is empathetic and compassionate, and works to develop a safe, open and positive relationship based on trust to enable exploration of the self to take place. She considers individual sensory needs, social interaction, communication, language and imagination, providing each client with greater insight into themselves which in turn works towards creating inner peace and positive changes to quality of life and lifestyle.
