Member Status: Accredited

Location: Farnham

Hello I am Rachel Sewrey, I am a qualified counsellor based in Farnham, Surrey. I am a registered member of  the BACP and an Accredited member of the NCS. As well as having my own private practice Serenity Speaking, I am affiliated with The Eaves Counselling & Psychology service based in Farnham and I have volunteered for a few years with The Fountain Centre, Royal Surrey County Hospital and with Catalyst drug and Alcohol misuse charities. I offer a secure, confidential environment so that you can feel safe to explore whatever may be troubling you. I am an integrative and EMDR therapist. This means I am able to tailor the therapy to suit your individual needs. I believe that understanding, compassion and a non judgmental approach are important values in life, always using these values in my practice. I work collaboratively with you, at your pace. I can offer short-term, fixed-term or long- term, face to face (in a COVID-19 secure environment) or if you prefer I can offer online & telephone therapy. Please note if you have not received a response from me via email please can you check your spam/junk folders as it appears to be happening. Please accept my apologies but this is something I have little control over.
