About me

Looking to find the right person to start or continue your therapy journey with?

Hi, I'm Claire and I offer a safe, warm hearted space in my counselling cabin here in Street.

I work in a person-centred way, exploring & crafting how best to work together, to gently access your inner world.

We are all so very different, and our doorway into our deeper self is so unique. So I hope to support your way of exploring what is calling for your attention from your deeper inner psyche.

I can draw upon deep listening, mindfulness practice, creative visualisation, transpersonal experiencing,  storytelling, archetypal exploration, walking in nature, making ceremony in nature, making art, journaling, somatic experiencing & bioenergetic awareness to assist you in finding your way.

I work in an integrative way, with a person-centred bedrock. I'm influenced by a trauma informed approach including compassionate enquiry, psychosynthesis, internal family systems, transactional analysis, Jungian storytelling, polyvagal theory, archetypes of the tarot & eco-therapy to name a few. This enquiry into theory and practice grows in response to what my clients bring.

I very much hold a transpersonal space for your enquiry. This means I have a spiritual perspective and hold space for exploring connection to a power greater than little self.

I welcome you reaching out and getting in touch to explore if I'm the right fit for you.

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.
