Rachel Cotter comes to Rehab Connection with more than eight years of experience as a Clinical Psychologist specialising in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) rehabilitation. Prior to that, she spent four years working as a Case Manager and Research Assistant with clients with TBI.
Rachel has a special interest in anxiety, mood, trauma and other psychological and functional effects of brain injury. She is passionate about working cooperatively with her clients and their families to choose the therapy approach that works best for them.
Rachel’s colleagues say she is very collaborative. She always listens closely to the ideas of other team members and works enthusiastically in brain-storming and joint sessions with other therapists. They also say she is dogged. If she doesn’t know the answer to something right away she will always go away, look it up, ask her network, find the answers and come back to you.
Rachel’s clients and their families say she is very approachable and easy to work with. We often hear people say it doesn’t feel like therapy working with Rachel. It just feels normal. She always adjusts her style to the needs and levels of her clients. She doesn’t use confusing medical jargon, and she goes to where her clients need the help, whether that’s at the shops, outdoors or at the pool.
When you refer a client to Rachel, you know they will get a full, in-depth service and their needs will be seen to completion.
