About me

Hi, I'm Claire,

Thank you for viewing my profile.  Sometimes in life we may experience difficulties, issues or events that cause us distress, feeling sad or confused and a whole range of feelings that we do not feel comfortable with.  By making the decision to engage with counselling, you are taking a step towards helping yourself with these feelings and can become more self aware as a result.

I'm a person centred counsellor, which means that I work in a non directive manner.  If you decide to work with me, we will use the safe confines of the therapeutic relationship to explore any issues and difficulties that you may be experiencing.  This can be an emotional process but ultimately, helps to untangle confusing feelings, can help you to reach acceptance and empower you to move forward.

I do my face to face work from some lovely rooms in the centre of Manchester so it has great transport links.

I am also experienced in working online, via Skype or by telephone call.  This means that you can access counselling from your own home or from your preferred location, whilst I can be flexible with appointment times and can offer evening and weekend appointments.

I work with a wide range of issues so please contact me if you feel we could work together.  However, I have specific experience in working with individuals who experience gender variance and support for their family members, bereavement and loss, relationship and family issues, sexual assault, depression and anxiety, infertility and miscarriage.
