About Us!


On the Horizon Counselling Services CIC is a compassionate space to explore what’s troubling you within Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

We are experienced, qualified and committed counsellors who aim to provide ethical counselling in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Hi, my name is Rachel and I help children, young people and adults who have experienced trauma. I am a qualified Youth Worker and have worked throughout Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent schools.

I provide a compassionate space offering counselling within our Studio at Leek and I offer Walk and Talk Therapy. My work outdoors connects the experience of breathing, moving and being in the natural world.

My clients feel it is time for their lives to shift for the better. I aim to help you move step by step towards the life you want.  I help you …

  • become more effective at work
  • regain connection with people in your life
  • feeling fabulous to be you
  • to be able to move past painful experiences



My name is Lisa Shaw.  I am an Integrative counsellor. This means I use various approaches including Person Centred theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Brief solution Therapy, Psychodynamic theory and Systemic therapy. I like to call this a little tool kit where I will use my skills depending on your needs.

I gained my Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling at Staffordshire University,  I adhere too and am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP 273397.

My experience consists of working alongside local organisations and within local Primary and Secondary schools. I have counselling experience with adults and young people with issues around loss, anxiety, depression, confidence, self esteem and resilience. I specialise in working with attachment with adults and young people.

I also offer parental support.

I provide both short term and long term therapy; focusing on helping you to better understand and manage the issues that challenge you and to identify and build on your strengths.
