My Approach

Originally trained as a holistic therapist and growing and evolving my practice from there, I have worked with people therapeutically now for over eighteen years, including for the last five years working psychotherapeutically as a relational integrative therapist.

Through my work and through experiences in my personal life I have become fascinated by people and the different ways we find of relating to each other. I recognise the power of having good, supportive relationships as being one of the central keys to our success and happiness as individuals.

I have also developed a deep interest in stories and the power they have to influence how we live our lives. I enjoy exploring with people the stories we create to help us make sense and meaning of our interactions with others and the world, and the things we experience in our lives that lead us to live out certain life narratives. I find deep joy in helping people transform their lives by supporting them to re-imagine the stories they hold which may be limiting them.

I bring both of these to the therapy that we do together so that we can explore openly the things that bring you here.

I also bring my belief in the benefits of engaging in therapy. This doesn’t come from a theoretical viewpoint but from my lived experience of being in therapy myself and having seen the benefits that this has had in my own life.

Finally, I am incredibly passionate about helping to create a world in which everyone can thrive.

About Me

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.

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 would be interested in please get in touch to book a discovery call.
