Mrs Rachel Spence

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS20-01930

Location: Leeds

I offer a down-to-earth, forward thinking, non-directive approach. I endeavour to create a warm, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship where we can focus on you and your situation. I will work with you to understand your concerns, your deeper needs and how they are affecting your life and relationships. I have worked with clients from the LGBT community and from diverse backgrounds.
I work with a wide range of problems including communication difficulties, anxiety, depression, divorce, affairs, self esteem, grief, issues of trust, difficulties with the wider family, cultural differences, and changes in the relationship such as a new baby, illness and retirement .
As an individual or a couple, coping with anxiety, depression, grief, feeling stuck or dealing with a crisis, this an opportunity to gain insight into yourself and others. I provide a safe environment for you to discover new perspectives, access inner resources and have the confidence to address change.
Counselling can help to find new insights and new ways of communicating within the relationship and with the world at large. The chance to talk honestly can be liberating and the sessions are tailored to your needs.
