As a young girl I always knew I wanted to work with people. I didn’t know exactly what I would do or how I would help others, all I knew was it I had a strong passion for wanting others to live a life free f suffering. With this as my driving force, I completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Psychology) and a Certificate in Coaching and Counselling at Deakin University.
From there I explored other avenues in therapy and completed a Diploma in Hypnosis as well as became a Level 2 Reiki and Access Consciousness practitioner.
Becoming fascinated with the mind and understanding human behaviour, I continued to study behaviour on a subconscious level and combined all the tools I had learnt so far in order to provide a holistic approach to therapy.
Early in my career I worked for 7 years in the education system, working at primary school in the south eastern suburbs. Whilst working within the education system I supported students through one-on-one therapy, group workshops and whole class lessons focused on self-worth, anxiety, social skills, healthy coping techniques, resilience and mindfulness. In addition to this, I was fortunate to work closely with teachers focusing on connection with students, understanding the impact of trauma, as well as staff self-care and wellbeing. I continue to work with schools through professional development seminars with a goal to improve staff wellbeing and strengthen all connections between staff and students.
In addition to this, I assisted in the creation and teaching of a Melbourne based Hypnotherapy and Counselling Course, and have worked in private practice for 8 years.
Connecting with others is my passion, providing a safe and compassionate environment where clients can heal and grow into their happiest and most authentic self is my goal.
I am passionate about educating individuals to better understand themselves and empowering them so that they can manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
By educating individuals on the science of the mind and body, as well as the disempowering traits that we take on in order to survive negative experiences, I aim to help people build resilience and strengthen their awareness in the realization that every day we get to choose the life we want to create.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"I started seeing Rachael a year ago, after many failed therapy sessions with multiple psychologists, and it is one of the best decisions I have made. Rachael has helped me grow from a self loathing paranoid wreck to a much happier, more confident person who is looking at starting his own business, something I would never have the confidence to do.
I was slightly sceptical of hypnosis before starting with Rachael and now I recommend it to anyone who shares with me that they are struggling with anxiety or depression. Rachael is an absolute star who has improved my life 10fold"

Let's Grow combines clinical therapy with alternative methods to achieve a holistic approach to supporting mental health and wellbeing.
Our counselling provides individuals with a safe space to discuss their concerns openly and freely without judgement. With our support, issues can be addressed in a positive way to help to gain clarity on the issues, explore options and possibilities, develop empowering strategies and increase self-awareness to become more empowered within themselves and their circumstances. Once issues are addressed on a conscious level, we then address them on a subconscious level through Hypnosis.
The subconscious mind holds the belief patterns that we form throughout our lives, both positive and negative. By addressing these beliefs on a subconscious level we are ensuring that we get to the root of the cause of our limiting thoughts and heal them.
Through combining conscious and subconscious therapy techniques, we offer a unique process and create life lasting changes.
