About me



I’m Rachel Hawkins-Crockford and I am a Counsellor and Writing for Wellbeing practitioner based in Westbury On Trym, Bristol.  I am passionate about supporting people to find their own solutions and help themselves live a meaningful life in the face of life’s changes and uncertainty.

Because people are unique and have diverse backgrounds, needs and concerns, I work in a person-centred and holistic way, incorporating different theories into my practice in order to meet the needs of each client.

​I understand  that when life get hard, and everything seems to be an uphill struggle, it can be difficult to take the first step forward. Even choosing the right person to talk to can feel difficult and counselling can seem a daunting prospect.

If you choose to undertake counselling with me, you will have a safe and confidential space in which to explore your issues and find solutions, develop coping strategies and make positive changes. As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I work within its ethical guidelines, which include regular supervision and professional development training.

If you’d like to take that first step, I’d love to hear from you. Please contact me to arrange for an initial consultation on 07875 403 188 or keylifetherapy@gmail.com
