Clare Colley - UKCP, MBACP (Reg. Member)
I offer professional, confidential counselling in Luton and surrounding areas.
Everyone experiences difficulties and challenges at times in their life. They don’t have to be faced alone. Sometimes talking to friends or family provides what we need, however, there are times when counselling can help.
I offer a private counselling practice that provides a place to talk and explore issues and difficulties that are present for you in a bright and pleasant space conveniently located in a residential area of Luton.
I am located within easy reach of the M1, A6 & A505 providing ready access from Luton and surrounding areas, including Harpenden, Hitchin and Mid Beds.
I have experience in dealing with a range of issues and invite you to take a look around my website or contact me for further information.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and aregistered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by their ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
Alongside my private practice I work with a local community counselling service in Hitchin and have several years of experience with a low-cost therapy service for clients in North London.
I have a particular interest in working with professionals and have previously worked in the University of Cambridge Staff Counselling Service.
I gained an MA & Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling at the Minster Centre, London, the UK’s leading integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling Training Institute.
It is important to me to keep up to date with current practice and developing ideas and I regularly attend training and professional development opportunities with this in mind.
EMDR is a NICE recommended therapy for working with trauma and PTSD. I have completed training and offer EMDR alongside other ways of working. Linking in to the brain's capacity to process information and experience in different ways, EMDR is a gentle and effective way of addressing issues that may be more difficult to access through other forms of therapy.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I offer both short and long term counselling and psychotherapy.
Some people want to make changes in their lives at a deep level and examine fundamental patterns and relationships. Long term psychotherapy has a focus on finding a deeper understanding of relationships with ourselves, our bodies, others and the world around us.
For others, there is a short term focus for those with a specific issue to address.
I have specific training and a developing interest in working with trauma, both developmental and PTSD.
I offer an initial appointment at a reduced fee of £30 for an opportunity to see if it would be useful for us to work together. This initial appointment will last between 30 minutes to an hour.
I work on a fixed fee basis and offer appointments on Monday to Friday daytimes and evenings.
Sessions Monday to Friday between 8.00am and 4.00pm are charged at £45 per session.
Sessions between 5.00pm and 8.00pm are charged at £50 per session.
Fees for organisational appointments £45-£65 depending on requirements.

I like to let clients know that I have a small well behaved dog who sometimes accompanies me in my practice.
