Claire Basil BACP (Accredited) Counsellor,
Counselling is professional, confidential support which can enable you to make decisions and changes or accept past and present experiences. I have experience working with adults and teenagers covering a wide range of issues including relationships, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, stress and work related problems.
I work in a supportive and collaborative way so that you as the client are the focus of the sessions and are able to talk about what you feel is important to you.
We can all face concerns and difficulties in our emotional lives that can affect our work, relationships and well being, counselling can support your emotional health. Reflecting on your experiences in the counselling environment can seem like a daunting experience but this process could lead to you being able to make effective changes and find a way forward so life feels more manageable and fulfilled.
Please contact me by email or phone using the contact details on this page and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how counselling might benefit you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma Therapeutic Counselling, BA (Hons) Counselling Greenwich University and BACP accredited since (2010)
I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 having completed a therapeutic Diploma with the CPCAB. In becoming a counsellor I joined the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and became a fully accredited member in 2010, which means I have completed a significant amount of client hours and reflection of my work. I also undertook further studies in 2010/2011 to complete a BA (Hons) in Counselling.
I work in private practice but also within a higher education facility offering one to one counselling and delivering mental health workshops. Alongside this I have worked for the NHS offering face to face, time limited counselling with adults.
