I am an experienced independent international trainer and consultant specialising in innovative ways of supporting people who struggle with extreme states (including ‘psychosis’, ‘dissociation’ and complex post-traumatic reactions). As well as having over 12 years of experience within the adult mental health field, I also have particular expertise in working with children, young people and people in prison who hear voices/see visions.

“Rachel’s training was nothing short of groundbreaking for Connecticut. Her openness about her own experience invited the students to stop thinking in terms of symptoms and start thinking in terms of human experience. From there we were able to learn exciting new strategies to interact with persons in distress that were practical and immediately usable”.

– Ronna Keil, Director Recovery Community Affairs, CT Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services
