About Us!


On the Horizon Counselling Services CIC is a safe place to explore what’s troubling you.

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

My name is Rachel Butcher. I am a Person-centred Counsellor and JNC Qualified Youth and Community Worker. I have worked with children and young people for 24 years in a variety of settings. I work with young people and adults who have experienced trauma.  I offer counselling and play sessions within our Studio at Leek and also walk and talk therapy. My work outdoors connects the experience of breathing, moving and being in the natural world.

I have enhanced disclosure Criminal Records Bureau, now known as DBS to work with both adults and children and I am also a CEOP Ambassador for internet safety.

I aim to provide a safe, supportive space so you can explore personal and complex emotions, experiences, and behaviour.


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.

I offer sessions at Leek and Milton therapeutic farm Serenity. Within these rooms I create a confidential safe space to explore yourself and work through your thought processes.
