Previous Customers We've Helped

“The sessions were really really beneficial. I couldn’t have asked for more to be honest. Went in feeling like shit and now I am so upbeat. Rachel was so easy to talk to. Thank you again.”

I had a mixture of telephone and face-to-face sessions with Rachel where we explored various aspects of my life. There was no specific agenda and the sessions varied in their nature. After a number of sessions, we came to a natural point to press pause on the sessions which made a lot of sense and I was happy to. It was during this pause that, being a naturally slow burner that I suddenly realised one day, out of nowhere, what it was that I was missing in my life! This was a real eureka moment and was due to the sessions with Rachel. Thank you Rachel for your patience and understanding.

I was really apprehensive at first when I first met Rachel. I was really unsure about how direct she was when she hardly knew me. But after spending time with her and getting to know each other in our sessions, I quickly realised how perceptive she was. She was actually on the money every time. This really made me trust her and respect her and what she had to say. I can honestly say I am now stronger mentally and this is thanks to our time together. I would 100% recommend Rachel & Ratcliffe Therapeutic Counselling.

Counselling is very personal to everyone. I found Michelle an extremely easy person to open up to and my counselling sessions with her have been invaluable to me. I can highly recommend anyone who is dealing with difficult emotional issues to look no further for help and support from Ratcliffe Therapeutic Counselling.

Rachel was so easy to talk to. She made the process simple and explained it to me to a point I felt instantly comfortable. I felt I could talk and share straight away with her. I felt safe and this was most important for me. We started at once a week then after a few months we went to every two weeks. The process was led by me and what I needed. This made me feel I had control over my own process. It was an amazing experience and I can't thank Rachel enough. I will definitely return in the future if I feel I needed further sessions. Ratcliffe Therapeutic Counselling left this open and up to me which makes it so comforting.
