About Me


Welcome to my corner of the digital world!

I'm Rachel Eastop, a dedicated consultant psychotherapist based in Dunfermline, Scotland, offering online psychotherapy services for teenagers and adults. Additionally, I provide valuable parent/carer consultations and clinical supervision. Let me share a bit about who I am and the journey that has led me to this fulfilling profession.

Originally from Bath, England, my husband, our son (now a trained actor and lead singer in a band), our beloved cocker spaniel, Marley, and I have called Dunfermline, Scotland, our home for the past 20 years. My professional journey spans over 30 years, during which I've contributed my expertise to businesses, charities, and the public sector in management, human resources, and learning & development.

In 2006, I earned my qualification as a counsellor for adults. Since then, my commitment to children's mental health has been unwavering. In 2008, I founded the charity Headroom, dedicated to providing specialized one-to-one counseling for disadvantaged children and young people navigating challenging emotional and psychological issues.

As an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I've contributed to the field by writing articles for the BACP Children & Families Journal. My educational journey includes an MA in child and adolescent psychotherapy, clinical supervision, and a Diploma in Training and Development.

Committed to the professional development of fellow counsellors, my colleague Moira Hood and I deliver a post-qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People through Essential Training Associates (

I am passionate about creating a safe and emotionally supportive therapeutic space for my clients. In this space, they can navigate complex issues and journey through past challenges, laying the foundations for a prosperous life. My goal is to empower clients to think, behave, and feel differently about their situations, ultimately influencing their lives and the lives of those around them in positive ways.

If you're seeking support or simply want to learn more about the service I offer, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
