Where we began

Dr. Rachel-Rose Burrell is the founder of Sozo Therapeuo, a resource designed to promote, improve and maintain good mental health within faith-based communities through education, training and therapy. Sozo means to restore spirit, soul, body, make whole, preserve and protect; Therapeuo means to cure, heal, relieve and worship. 

With a passion for empowering people to live life to the fullest with a sound mind, body, soul and spirit, she excels in enabling people to see life and its pressures from a positively different perspective. 

Our experience

She is a qualified and accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with a broad range of experience designing and delivering mental health awareness, counselling skills, stress management, and personal and professional development training programmes on a local, national and international level.  

Dr Burrell has many years’ experience and a track record of developing counselling services within education, the voluntary sector and churches. She is a member of the leadership team at her local church and developed and leads an inclusive and wholistic well-being service, as a psychotherapist she is driven to empower leaders and people in general to experience life to their full potential. 

Dr Burrell has completed a research study investigating how faith and a church community impact mental health and well-being particularly within Black Majority churches in the UK. The products and resources are products of that research with a view to inform, educate and equip readers. 

Sozo Therapeuo offers a high quality, professional and life transforming experience. All material, activities and events offered are geared towards increasing knowledge and self-awareness, to encourage expression of deeper thoughts and feelings, to facilitate personal growth and to strengthen individual faith.
