Claire Daplyn - CTA, UKCP, MBACP, UKATA Dip. TA Practice, BA (Hons)
I am a psychotherapist who offers my clients the opportunity to work collaboratively with me in a safe, non-judgemental environment. I work with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues and have a particular interest in trauma, relationships, anxiety & grief therapy.
As well as working as a psychotherapist, I also manage Inner Space Counselling Ltd. which is a busy therapy practice based in Central Tunbridge Wells with further locations in Groombridge, St.Johns, and Sevenoaks.

You can learn more about our team via the website above.
I help people who are very stressed and anxious to manage their symptoms by exploring both the root causes of these anxious feelings as well as the elements which are sustaining them. For more information please follow; https://www.innerspacecounselling.co.uk/stress-and-anxiety

I will offer you the opportunity to talk openly in a confidential and secure environment and I will listen carefully, empathically and without judgment.

I am a full member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy), UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) and European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA). I work in accordance with the Codes of Ethics and Professional Practice of these professional bodies.
My therapeutic background is in Transactional Analysis (TA), although I also incorporate some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques into my work where appropriate.
