F. Claire Maskery MSc UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, counsellor.
0777 158 3756
We all struggle at times - but you don't have to cope on your own. I help people from all walks of life to live happier, healthier lives and find new ways of living with issues such as …
• Addiction (drugs / alcohol / sex / media)
• Anxiety and stress
• Dysfunctional family dynamics
• Historic childhood trauma and abuse (sexual / emotional / verbal / physical / boarding school survivors / adoptees)
• Lack of confidence / self-esteem
• Loss (in its varied forms) and bereavement
• Making peace with an AB side
• Relationship difficulties
• Psychiatric and personality disorders (bipolar / borderline personality disorder)
Following our time together clients tell me they sleep better, have better work and personal relationships, feel less burdened by stress - that they are living more authentic lives. Feel free to check-out my website for more information.
Best wishes and I hope you find what you need,
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) registered psychotherapist. I hold an MSc in Person-Centred and experiential psychotherapy. I will not tell you what to do, but I will work with you to help you find your own solution.
I am a qualified Registered General Nurse and trained as an Independent Mental Capacity Advocate acting on behalf of people who lacked capacity (as defined by legislation).
I presently work with the Carer’s Federation, a drug and alcohol support facility, as well as in private practice.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
My specialism is formative trauma in its many and varied forms, including but not limited to, sexual, verbal, emotional and physical abuse, boarding school survivors and adoptees. I support clients who experienced formative abuse as they address the painful events of their childhood and embrace a different way of living.
I also support clients who identify as Adult Babies (AB). Men and women who visit me who find they are not at peace with this side of themselves can feel overwhelmed by feelings of guilt and shame, spending lots of money on ‘binge and purge’ cycles. Others tell of a fear of what an AB side means for their relationships and work.
All sessions are for a full hour and usually held weekly. I charge £50 ph and cancellation without 24 hours’ notice will be charged.
