Rachel is a warm and exceptionally skilled counsellor with over 16 years’ experience immersed in the very deep work that is “talk therapy”.   She approaches every client from a place of devotion to support their healing and growth, and feels it truly humbling and a gift to be allowed into another’s inner world.

Rachel’s formal training was through the University of Queensland St Lucia, completing a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy and later completing a Master of Counselling degree graduating with the highest in academic excellence.  She has worked in mental health covering both clinical and community sectors, as well as with non-government organisations. Rachel provides specialised therapeutic support to adolescents and adults in her private practice.

Rachel draws from a range of therapeutic approaches and tailors’ sessions to meet the unique needs, personality and goals of each client.  Therapeutic techniques that inform her practice include Person-Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Expressive Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Existential Therapy, Body-Oriented Psychotherapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy. 

Along with her extensive education, knowledge and skill, Rachel’s enriched life perspective influences her counselling practice – for it is both a science and an art.
