Poynton, Cheshire/Stockport & Manchester [Rachel Beckford]

I worked in the NHS for 22 years as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist & a Clinical Lead in Eating Disorders. In 2008 I also qualified as a CAT Therapist. I have experience in a range of settings & across a variety of conditions including anxiety, low mood, relationship difficulties, childhood trauma & bereavement as well as eating disorders.

I now work in private practice at The Rooms. I can offer therapy to adults, young people & their carers. I also work with couples.  Taking that first step into therapy can feel the hardest and feeling nervous or unsure is understandable. I therefore  aim to work with clients to help them make sense of their current difficulties & explore ways in which change may be possible.

I can be contacted for an initial consultation by calling 07513 879498 or by email beckfordra@gmail.com. Sessions are available on Thursdays and Fridays between 10 and 7pm, at The Rooms which is based in the centre of Poynton on London Road. There is parking nearby and easy access to a train station from Manchester city centre as well as the surrounding areas.

I also offer Consultation and supervison to other professionals and throughout my career have taught psychologists and other mental health professionals.
