Claire Moor MBACP (Snr Accred)
I am a BACP Senior Accredited and Registered psychodynamic counsellor/psychotherapist. I offer sessions to individual adults on a weekly basis and work both short and long term. My private practice has been running since 2003 and I offer a safe, consistent space to explore what can often be difficult feelings.
Counselling is a space to talk about whatever is causing you distress or upset; the counsellor is not there to give advice or tell you what to do, but to help you to understand and unravel what is going on. This may be linked to past experiences and patterns of behaviour and with the help of the counsellor, the idea is we can get a better understanding of the problems. I work with many issues and offer a consultation session firstly to explore whether I am the right person to work with you, as the therapeutic relationship is an important part of the work.
I have 20 years clinical experience, with adults, adolescents and children, in a variety of settings, including the NHS, voluntary sector and schools. I have also set up and managed counselling services. I currently work as as student counsellor in a London University.
I also offer supervision, particularly to school counsellors.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with most issues including relationships (on an individual, not couples, basis), loss, attachment, identity, depression etc. However, many people are not sure what is troubling them and I work with whatever they bring to sessions; together we try and come to understand what might be going on.

Ongoing Fees: £55-65 (sessions are 50 minutes long). We work out where in this scale feels best for you.
My practice is situated 5 minutes from the centre of Crystal Palace and the rail station.
Please check my website for availability..
You are welcome to either ring or email in the first instance - email tends to get a quicker response - but it is useful to speak in any event before meeting for the first time. I will only offer an assessment session if I have spaces and we both feel you are in the right place. The assessment session is an important time to spend exploring what your needs are and whether I am the right person to be working with.
