Hi, thanks for stopping by

I’m Rachel Surtees a.k.a the rambling psychotherapist.  I offer therapy sessions both online, and face-to-face outdoor sessions in an urban park location in North Leeds.

You may already know that you definitely want therapy and if you do, feel free to click the links to get more information about the different therapy options I offer.  Not everyone who arrives at my website knows for certain whether or not therapy might be the right kind of support for them though, so below is a bit more detail about what therapy is and how it can be supportive…

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; you may want some support with a life event or transition, you may be experiencing anxiety, depression or low self-esteem (to name a few common issues), or be feeling unsatisfied with your relationships, you might be feeling stuck or want to explore and better understand who you are and what you want from life.

Whatever your reasons for seeking support right now, I can offer you a respectful, empathic and non-judgmental space for you to come and talk about what you are finding challenging in life.

We will explore together, at a safe pace which suits you, what brings you to therapy and what might be standing in the way of you living the life you want. We will discover what change might look like for you and I will support you to experiment with new strategies and behaviours which will help you to create lasting change and help you to thrive.

If this sounds like something you are interested in click the button below to email me and request your free consultation.

You have a few options when coming into therapy with me –

You can access the support of therapy from the comfort of your own space by opting for online sessions.

I also offer face-to-face outdoor therapy sessions at an urban park location in North Leeds.

Evidence now shows that it is the quality of the relationship which you have with your therapist that dictates how effective therapy is rather than any one particular type of therapy being more effective than another.  It’s really important therefore to find a therapist you feel you can build a good working relationship with.  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 working relationship with you that allows us to explore together what may be standing in the way of you living the life you want and develop strategies for creating the change you desire.
