Emotional well-being is as important for your health as the often more emphasised physical elements.  We often refer to this part of the team to give you tools to deal more effectively with aspects of the mind.

Emotional Wellbeing

Mind Matters at Southcote

Poor health can affect our mental state and our mental state can affect our health.

We often overlook this fact and focus on treating our symptoms, not always taking time to consider the underlying causes.


We all feel down from time to time; we all feel stressed and overwhelmed by life's challenges.  However, we do not always feel our 'needs' warrant a trip to a doctor.

Yet prevention is better than cure and dealing with our concerns before they impact too severely on our everyday life means that we may be able to avoid more serious ill health in the future.


The team at Southcote Proactive Healthcare are very aware of the need for a balance between mind and the body and would like to introduce you to their Mind Matters team:



Re-emerging Therapies with Rachel Smith

Rachel has been a member of the team since 2009, joining us as a Sports Massage Therapist. She has since trained in life coaching and has most recently completed a Diploma in Therapeutic NLP and Hypnotherapy.


Rachel works with clients helping them let go of stress, anxiety and unhelpful emotions, gaining confidence, being happy in themselves and finding life purpose.

She runs regular workshops focusing on de-cluttering and another on exploring your dreams and aspirations with the creation of a vision collage.


Appointments at Southcote are available on Tuesdays and Fridays at a fee of £50 per session (sessions last 1.15 hrs) and Rachel can be contacted on 07940 748830

April Clarkley 

April aims to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which clients can explore, understand and work through problems and difficult emotions that many struggle with. 


April trained to work with an integrating method, which allows her to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to suit individual needs and personal circumstance.

She also offers quick and effective therapy for phobias, PTSD and other trauma related distress.


April holds qualifications specific to working with children and adolescents: When working with children, she will adapt the sessions accordingly, using either a child lead or more structured approach. Play therapy skills may be used, where toys, sand, and creative materials help the child to make sense of challenging situations and feelings.

For any client under 16 years old, their parents or caregivers are required to book a meeting with April to discuss their child’s needs and how best she can offer support before therapy sessions can begin.


April works at Southcote Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and evenings.

The fee for each sessions £50.
