I believe we need to attend to all the dimensions of being human – physical, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual – in a fully integrated way.
Dr Rachel Freeth worked as an NHS psychiatrist for over 25 years in a variety of mental health settings. For many years she combined this with working as a person-centred therapist in the voluntary sector but has recently developed a private therapy practice based in Gloucestershire.
With her dual professional backgrounds she also writes and delivers workshops and training on subjects related to psychiatry and mental health, particularly for counsellors and psychotherapists.
