Claire Phillips BA(HONS) Dip Counselling (BACP Registered)
As a Person-Centred counsellor, I provide a space where we can explore your thoughts and feelings, however difficult. We can meet up and see how you feel about our initial session and take it from there!!
Here is a little info about myself. I have travelled, worked and lived in South East Asia for over 10 years and have lived and worked in South East London for over 15 years. I feel I am able to deliver a way of working that is culturally sensitive. In the last 5 years I have worked in a London drop-in centre running the art group and often providing 1-1 support for vulnerable adults presenting with various personal issues and mental health problems. I have worked in the NHS I am currently seeing clients in HMP's in London along with seeing private clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
My Practitioner training involved working with 11-25 year olds in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) for three years.
I utilised my Person-Centred Art Therapy skills within the local community in a drop-in centre working with groups and 1-1. over a period of four years.
I am currently counselling adult NHS clients on a part time basis.
I am able to use British sign language (BSL) up to level 2.
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.
