Hi, thanks for stopping by

I’m Rachel Surtees, Relational Integrative Therapist in advanced training.  I offer therapy sessions both online to people living throughout the UK, and face to face in a walk and talk format in an urban park location in North Leeds.

Why might therapy be for you?

The things we find difficult in life come in many guises and can be really challenging to navigate alone; a shift in life direction, relationship issues (both romantic and other), the starting or ending of a relationship, long term illness, the death of a loved one, issues at work, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem to name but a few can become part of anybody’s experience at any time.

If you are struggling with something right now you may feel worried, sad, hurt, angry, anxious, flat, confused, lost, without direction, isolated and alone, worthless or ashamed (again this list is not exhaustive) and these feelings can at times seem overwhelming.  We’re often told that carrying on with life is necessary in order to get past these difficulties but rarely is this a simple task.

You may not know where to turn – communicating your pain and struggle to friends and loved ones can sometimes feel quite scary and daunting, especially where you feel you need to be strong for the other, that you may be burdening the other with your worries, or worry that you may be judged harshly or critically.  Trying to cope with things alone though can often compound the issue.

I offer an impartial, respectful, empathic, non-judgemental space for you to come and talk about what you are finding challenging in life.  By exploring together, in a safe and secure space, at a pace that suits you we will look at your patterns of relating and behaving and discover and address the roots of your difficulties, opening up the possibility for you to create lasting change.

I offer online therapy sessions (50 mins) to individuals who are based within the UK.  These sessions take place from the comfort of your own space using the Zoom platform.

I also offer one to one walk and talk therapy sessions (50-80 mins depending on what your requirements are) at an urban park location in North Leeds.  At present it is possible to do these face to face but this is subject to change depending on the most current government guidance relating to the CV-19 pandemic.  Should face to face sessions be temporarily restricted in outdoor spaces we will  undertake our sessions online until the restrictions are eased again.

It’s really important to find a therapist you feel you can build a good working relationship with and in light of this  I offer a free consultation session so that we can get to know each other a little and you will have a taste of what it might be like for us to work together.

Should you then choose to work with me I am committed to building a respectful and trusting relationship with you that allows us to explore your world together.
