About me

Hi and welcome to my page, my name is Claire Brierley and I am a MBACP registered DipMBACP Integrative Counsellor & Sleep Therapist. I am highly trained and offer a seamless approach to counselling. Using Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT strategies I can help you explore and unpick real life issues and traumatic events.

I have supported children, adults and families across Cheshire for 21 years and take pride in providing a comfortable space and a non-judgmental approach to my support services for adults and children.

I can help you explore feelings of mental and physical distress. These symptoms can manifest themselves in feelings of low self-esteem, mental health issues, stress, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, guilt, shame, anger, loss, isolation, substance misuse and emotional and physical abuse. I offer a professional, confidential and safe service of respectful, empathic counselling for clients to explore and understand their own insights and perspectives of experiences and issues, to enable them to resolve difficult feelings and subsequent unwanted feelings and behaviours. Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows you to talk about your problems in a confidential manner. I offer a warm, friendly relaxed environment to help you at this point in your life. When issues are causing you emotional pain/upset and you are struggling to resolve them counselling is the route to take. I provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings and help you find your own insights into understanding your problems.

Counselling can help avoid prescribed medication or can be used alongside medication. You may be offered counselling as a single session, as a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months, or as a longer course that lasts for several months or years. This will be discussed within the first session. An initial free consultation over the phone is available.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
