Dr Rachel Freeth

Dr Rachel Freeth is a part-time psychiatrist working in an NHS community team in Herefordshire.  She also works as a counsellor for a counselling charity in Gloucestershire, having trained in the person-centred approach.

Through both writing and delivering workshops, Rachel bridges the worlds of psychiatry and counselling, and the contrasting worlds of psychiatry and the person-centred approach.  In so doing she aims to help counsellors and psychotherapists develop greater understanding and confidence regarding psychiatric issues.

She is author of Humanising Psychiatry and Mental Healthcare. The challenge of the person-centred approach (Freeth, 2007), and has also written for the BACP journal Therapy Today.

We spoke to Rachel about the topic of humanising psychiatry on our blog.
