Clare-Marie Keel Dip Therapeutic counselling MBACP
01329 482184 / 07984 138277
Welcome, my name is Clare-Marie Keel. I am a qualified counsellor/therapist based in Fareham, Hampshire with easy access to transport links and onsite parking. My fees are extremely competitive as I feel counselling should be available to all that are in need of an empathic listener. As such I am able to offer concessions to those clients that are currently unemployed or in receipt of benefits.
It can be quite daunting making that first enquiry for counselling, rest assured I will do all I can to put you at ease and discuss the counselling process. My counselling practice offers a range of different counselling models, having worked in caring professions for many years I continue to recognise how everyone's needs are personally unique to them. I believe one size does not fit all when it comes to different schools of therapy. Therefore I am more than happy to talk through how this may be of benefit to you.
If I explain about myself so you have an understanding of my working background. I was in my early forties when I became a counsellor after working in the care sector for many years. Over my time in care work it became extremely clear to me how those who were in crisis or struggling with everyday life really needed someone to listen to them in a safe non-judgmental empathic environment. To explore this more I went on to becoming involved in various charities from supporting clients that are suicidal to working with families under extreme pressures. My experience has allowed me to work with clients of all ages ranging from those that were terminally ill, to clients with severe depression, relationship issues, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction and family issues to name a few.
Occasionally in life we may feel it beneficial to be able to talk to someone other than friends and family who can sometimes be too involved with us on an emotional level for to us to be fully open about our troubles.
I went on to carry out extensive training in loss and grief and I have worked for a large charity as a bereavement counsellor for some years. When we hear the word loss we often associate this with a bereavement, but loss can include the breakdown of a relationship, losing our independence, unemployment, declining health etc. so it can cover a wide range of difficulties that we encounter throughout our lives.
The models of therapy that I use in my practise are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Person Centred Counselling. I am also able to in cooperate mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help with anxiety, sleep problems, depression and various other issues.
In your counselling session I will work warmly and sensitively at your pace using the model of therapy that you feel would suit your needs best. Please feel free to email me on email@example.com or telephone me on 07984 138277 or 01329 482184
