About me

My name is Claire,  I am an integrative Counsellor, which means I can adapt my approach to meet your individual needs. I am a kind non judgemental, real person who knows the ups and downs that life can bring. I currently work with Individuals, couples and children from 8 years upwards. I work at a local Hospice which I encounter many different kinds of mental health issues from anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, addiction, end of life, life limiting illness, relationships, self-harming, OCD and more.

Every client is different and unique with their own issues and concerns. I provide a confidential, safe and supportive environment which enables you to express your thoughts and feelings freely without being judged, and in your own time.  I can offer short and long term counselling face to face and online, which ever you prefer.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
