Rachel ArguilePsychodynamic psychotherapist
Looking for a therapist can be daunting but finding the right one is a really important part of the process. So if you've just started or have been looking for sometime, well done so far!
People call me Rachel or Ray. I am an HCPC registered Psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I have over ten years of experience working with adults and children. I mostly provide one to one therapy and supervision sessions but I also have experience of setting up, leading and facilitating group work. I am a practicing artist and am trained in Art Psychotherapy but much of my work now is talking therapy. Since the pandemic I have been providing sessions online and over the phone. I am based in Bristol.
I work both short and long term. I do not offer couples therapy. I work with adults and children, providing a safe space to learn, develop and heal. My areas of speciality include personal growth and transformation, LGBTQ+ issues, help with anxiety, stress and trauma. I am available for daytime, evening and some weekend sessions.
I offer an initial session at a reduced rate and at this stage you can decide if you would like the work to continue. If I am working with a child I will also meet with their parents/carers before and after the sessions. Together we will decide how many sessions you might like and how often (weekly, monthly etc); if you would prefer to work in person, on the phone or via video. Some people choose to use Art as a way to help express themselves. The non-verbal communication and visual processes within Art Therapy can be very helpful, especially when exploring more complex feelings, but it is not something you have to use.
