Who I am
My name is Claire, I am a qualified counsellor and experienced life coach. I am able to offer both professional and empathic support, to enable you to overcome any difficulties you may be experiencing. I have trained to work in an integrative way, therefore I am able to draw from a range of theories, including person centred, psychodynamics and cognitive behavioural therapy, to enable you to gain understanding, create solutions, strategies and process positively.
What I do, and how it could help you?
By offering effective therapy in various areas, including depression, stress, anxiety, relationship problems, family difficulties, bereavement, social anxiety and addictions.
Working from my base in Ingatestone, I offer a welcoming, empathic, confidential and non judgemental space for you to talk about, and explore areas of difficulty in your life.

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.
