Our History & Our Team

Find out about how we got started, what our vision and current mission is and why, then meet our experienced team members.

Our History

Our CEO and Founder Paul started the charity in 2011 in Hull, with only one client. It soon grow fast over the coming weeks and nine years later we have been able to assist over 1,000 people suffering with addictions and have seen 100s in counselling.

In 2019 RHM Recovery rebranded the counselling arm of the charity to Rhema Counselling and this has been successful in helping clients that we were unable to reach.

Our Vision

Our purpose as a charity is to enable people to make informed choices concerning their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being, in a way which reflects our belief in unconditional acceptance in order to:

Actively empower individuals
Encourage their sense of self worth
Help them realise their full potential

We do this through appropriate and feasible feedback and sustained contact with other professionals.

The Mission

Rhema Counselling is a value driven organisation, originating from Christian perspective and believing in no compromise on hope for people’s lives no matter what their situation.

We pride ourselves on our ethos of compassion, care, creativity and integrity in all areas of work.

We are a placement provider, mentoring and training new counsellors study Level 4 counselling at East Riding College

But Why?

Mental Health effects everyone at some stage of their lives and can last for decades,  in some cases affecting relationships, families and communities. Our experience in providing counselling and recovery, of some 20 years, is that we help YOU find your path to healing.

For maintained recovery, long-term healing must come to the heart of a person, so we aim to provide the necessary classes and courses that will get to the root of the problems…Rejection, Abuse, Abandonment, Trauma, Loss etc. We endeavour to provide a non-judgemental environment for anyone that seeks out our help at our locations in East Yorkshire.
