My name is Claire Abernethy and I am an experienced and qualified counsellor and Supervisor. I offer a safe and secure place where you can talk about the things in life that are causing you sadness, anxiety or distress. I have vast experience working with people facing all types of difficulties.
As a person-centered counsellor I am committed to helping and empowering people when they are feeling lost, stuck, or that their world is crumbling around them. By providing a supportive space, an honest and caring relationship I help people find their own way forward in life.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
