Who Am I?

Rachel Button
Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Welcome to your journey to better mental health. I’d like to introduce myself and let you know a little about who I am and why I do this.

A big part of what led me to where I am today is the challenges I’ve faced. Throughout my life, I’ve had personal experiences with:

  • Disordered Eating
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

These issues led me to seek out my own personal therapy.

This was something I found incredibly difficult, but ended up being a life-changing experience.

The confidence I gained through personal therapy enabled me to leave my career in teaching and follow my longtime dream of running my own businesses – namely being a therapist and owning a café.

It’s All About People

While my two chosen careers may seem unrelated, to me, both of these jobs are all about people.

In the café, we have a range of board games for our customers to enjoy and make connections with others through play.

Similarly, being a therapist means I can work with individuals on a much deeper level. The work can facilitate you in making the changes you wish to make and give you the best life you can have – whatever that may look like to you.
