Clare Bate MBACP (Accred) MBABCP (Accred)
I am an accredited psychotherapist and counsellor with extensive experience in helping individuals and couples overcome relationship difficulties, common mental health problems, difficulties associated with loss and change either planned or unplanned. I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment that will support you in exploring the way forward.
I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and live it more fully. I vary my approach according to the needs of each individual.
I work from home and have a comfortable, purpose built, private therapy space. If you drive, there are no parking restrictions and my therapy room is also easily accessible by public transport.
