Sukhi Sian-Claire MA, Registered Member MBACP (Accred). Clinical Supervisor.
Through my therapeutic work I aim to empower and help people to heal in order to move on with their lives.
I believe that depression, anxiety and any other emotional difficulties we experience 'today' in the 'here and now' can be connected to unresolved feelings/experiences from our pasts (unconscious feelings).
It's not necessary to explore the past, although it can be very insightful and life changing. Counselling can help with current situations causing you stress - these might be work, family and relationship related. Counselling can help you to develop better ways of coping with life's demands.
I offer a confidential space where thoughts and feelings can be expressed and explored. Talking freely enables insight into our unconscious mind and can help to gain a better understanding of ourselves, our relationships and our circumstances. This awareness can empower us to make positive changes in our lives.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor with 10 years of expereince in counselling mainly women and young people in both statutory and voluntary organisations. I have worked in several women's organisations counselling women with a variety of issues. Please see below for areas of counselling.
I trained in psychodynamic counselling (Post Graduate Diploma) at the University of Birmingham 2001-2004. I Iater completed my Masters in 2009. My research was based on women's perceptions and experiences of counselling, with particular focus on women marginalised by society through substance misuse, offending behaviour and street sex work.
My core model to counselling is psychodynamic, however I do intergrate other approaches where necessary; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Creative Therapy.
I am also a qualified counselling supervisor. Please see my supervisors profile for more information.
