Claire McCusker (MBACP) Counsellor & Life Coach
If things just don’t feel right, your quality of life is suffering, and you feel you need specialist counselling support, I provide a safe, supported and confidential environment in which to help you to find comfort and release from painful feelings and situations linked to stress, anxiety, trauma, illness, addiction and loss.
I am a kind and warm hearted experienced BACP Registered counsellor and psychotherapist working in private practice and for several charities within Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex. I adhere to the Ethical Code of Practice for the Counselling Professions set out by the BACP.
For the last two years I have been working with Macmillan Cancer Services in Midhurst. I see both patients and relatives of patients giving either bereavement support or support through critical and life- threatening illness.
I also work with individuals, parents, couples and students who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I have extensive experience with parenting and family issues including separation and divorce.
My work is primarily person-centred which means I am providing a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your needs. The process enables self-discovery and change. All ages, disability, gender, race, religion and sexuality are treated with respect and dignity.
Please do feel free to contact me to discuss your concerns at any time. All communication is confidential. I aim to return all calls and emails within 24 hours if not sooner.
