Thank you for clicking my entry to find out more. At this stage in your search the question uppermost in your mind is probably “Claire, can you help me?” followed by “How on Earth do I pick which type of therapy is best for me out of all these buzzwords like 'CBT', 'Humanistic', 'Psychodynamic', 'Person Centred' and so on?”
I am an “integrative-relational counsellor” meaning once I have met you, I do the work to pick the best from several types of therapy and blend an approach tailored to you. Like a bespoke scent made specially to suit you rather than offering the same single note perfume to all.
Research shows that of all the factors determining how well therapy goes our therapeutic relationship accounts for 30% of likely success, hence “relational” and my studying a degree which taught me how to make best use of our relationship in our work together.
So, back to your questions. The honest answer at this stage is I don’t know for sure if I can help, I hope so. It is hard for us to get the measure of each other from just a photo and a profile of me and an email or a phone call from you. I would suggest that you give me a ring please on 07950 986 085 to discuss whether an initial "chemistry test" session might be a helpful next step for you, thank you.
I would have thought that the odds are pretty good that I can help in that, in addition to my private practice in Weybridge, I am a member of the teams delivering counselling to patients at two busy Surrey GP surgeries and a BACP accredited charity offering counselling for anxiety and depression from three Surrey locations.
My area of particular interest is working with those whose overeating feels compulsive and addictive.
Before I was a counsellor I worked for 28 years in the private sector so have insight into the stresses and strains of balancing work and Life and experience of Life’s ups and downs generally.
