Rachel Ewan: Registered Mental Health Nurse with a BSc in Mental Health Studies from King’s College London. 20 years’ experience working within the NHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) and now runs her own private practice. Has a PGCE and is completing an MSc in Positive Psychology from University of East London.

He is the founder of Talking FreEly a community interest company which raises mental health awareness in Cambridgeshire.


“Rachel has regularly delivered mental health training to both staff and students at Saint Andrews College, Cambridge. Her relaxed, engaging and professional teaching style result in a captive audience who are eager to learn what can times be a difficult subject matter. The relaxed atmosphere in the classroom encourages everyone, regardless of level of knowledge to feel comfortable enough to interact and ask questions. A perfect learning environment.” David McEwan, Cox Head of Pastoral Care, St. Andrews International College Cambridge

“I recently attended a mental health training course run by Rachel which was extremely informative and fulfilling. Rachel has a warm and relaxed manner which coupled with her vast experience meant it was easy to learn and discuss topics. Thanks to Rachel’s training I’ve been able to implement new systems in school and raise awareness amongst children, staff and parents of the importance of supporting our children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. I would highly recommend.”   Anna Hewitt, Wellbeing Coordinator, Upton House School
