Hi, I'm Rachel
I truly love my job as a psychologist. I always feel privileged when people trust me to help them through difficult times in their lives. I take the time to get to know the young people that I work with, so that we can decide together what’s going to work best for them. I see everyone as unique and value individuality. I aim to help people to see the positives in themselves and live life to the full.
