My name is Claire and I’m an humanistic, trauma informed and women-centred counsellor. I work one to one with adults remotely, via telephone and internet and also from my therapy room in Peterlee, County Durham. I’m a registered member of the BACP.
Training, qualifications & experience
Alongside my private practice, I counsel in the voluntary sector. I have worked with a variety of issues, including anxiety, trauma, bereavement, self-esteem, depression and personal development. I have a particular interest in women’s issues, domestic abuse, sexual violence, trauma and loss. I am an LGBTQ+ allied therapist. I hold a B.A. in Counselling and have undertaken additional training in remote counselling.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
