Clair Tibbit MBACP
I trained at the University of Cambridge and then worked for the mental health charity MIND for seven years, counselling clients who were experiencing a wide variety of problems including depression, bereavement, addiction, relationship issues and work related stress. I have also worked as counsellor for ADAS a service for clients who experience problems relating to drug, alcohol and other addictions. In 2013 I relocated to York and worked in private practice and for the NHS as a counsellor based in the local GP practices and then later for the IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) Service. In 2018 I moved back to the Newmarket area and I am now working from the Lifestuff Counselling Centre in Newmarket.
What is Counselling?
Counselling provides a safe and supportive environment in which to talk through your thoughts and problems and reflect on past and present events with a knowledgeable, non-judgemental professional. It gives you a confidential place to 'let off steam' and express your feelings. It encourages you to take an honest look at your current thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be preventing you from moving forward. It helps you to find ways of changing these overwhelming emotions in a way that will take you to a safer and more secure place.It can often provide an environment to understand and learn about ourselves so that you can take control of and responsibility for your life.
How I work
As a counsellor I will listen and try to help you explore and make sense of your current feelings and behaviour, we may identify patterns that have their roots in your past experiences. As counselling progresses you may gain insights and work with me to find more helpful ways of coping with your problems and feelings.
Coming to counselling can often be seen as a journey and sometimes the first step is the hardest step. However every journey starts with one step, and maybe you have taken that first step today by looking at this website.
