H. Claire Millar Bsc (Hons) MBACP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
My name is Claire Millar. I am an experienced counsellor, having trained in psychotherapy at the world-renowned Metanoia Institute in London.
Together we will explore - gently and entirely at your own pace - the issues that are troubling you. The aim is to enable you to acknowledge and fully understand difficulties in your past, so that you can fulfil your current needs and desires and face the future with confidence and a sense of security.
We all experience challenging times in our lives: it takes bravery and honesty to accept that you need a guiding-hand at this stage in your journey. With warmth and compassionate professionalism I will help you identify the solutions to your problems - but they will be your solutions.
I provide a wide range of counselling on a one-to-one basis and for couples, from bereavement to various forms of addiction, anxiety and depression, and relationship problems. I have also worked with people who have experienced sexual, emotional and physical abuse.
For 10 years I was a Samaritan, holding a senior position in my local branch. As such I am experienced in addressing suicidal thoughts and self-harm. I have found that a lack of self-esteem lies at the heart of many problems.
I would be very happy to meet you for an initial session, to enable you to judge if I am the right counsellor for you. I am located in Guildford and offer sessions during weekdays, evening or at the weekend to suit your needs.
