Claire Hallett MBACP
At times life can present us with challenges which can sometimes result in causing stress, anxiety, depression, relationship or work issues, bereavement and loss or lack of meaning to life to name but a few. Talking to a counsellor provides you the opportunity to explore such areas and help you to resolve these issues and move forward in your life.
I am a qualified, integrative counsellor working in the area of Stifford Clays, Essex. I am a member of the BACP and work within their Ethical Framework. My hope as a counsellor is to offer you a comfortable and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions in a safe, non-judgemental way so that you will feel at ease to talk about whatever is concerning you. I work with different approaches and techniques which suit you as an individual and believe the therapeutic relationship is of utmost importance. I see my role as your counsellor as walking with you on your journey as you discover how you would like your life to be. I will work hard to listen and understand how you experience your feelings with empathy and without judgement or criticism.

The decision to speak to a counsellor is the first positive step towards improving your life and well being. I offer a free initial 30minute assessment where you will have the opportunity to give me an insight into what is bringing you, how you are in your day to day life and your expectations of therapy. The prospect of counselling can often feel quite daunting for some so it is important that you find a counsellor who feels right for you. Your 30 minute assessment will be a good opportunity for you to decide if you would like to make another appointment and whether or not I am the right counsellor for you. Should we decide to continue working together, sessions would be on the same day at the same time each week.
Please feel free to contact me by phone, text or email if you would like to book an assessment session. If I am unable to take your call, please leave a message stating if you would like me to return your call or if you would like me to respond to your message by text. I will endeavour to get back to you within 24 hours.
