About me

Hi, my name is Claire, thank you for visiting my profile. I am an experienced and fully qualified counsellor and offer daytime and evening appointments to anyone over the age of 16.

I appreciate it takes courage to start counselling and understand taking the first step can sometimes feel daunting. You may want to work through difficult life-events, or feel overwhelmed, or perhaps stuck and want help to explore and work through a particular issue. It is my aim to work alongside you in a professional, safe, warm and non-judgemental way to help you explore these aspects of your life, allowing you to regain control, so you are able to move forward and live life to the fullest.

Personally, I believe the key to successful therapy is the relationship, so it is important that you find the right person for you. I offer the first session at a reduced rate, giving us a chance to meet and discuss what you’d like from therapy, before making any type of commitment. Please give me a call for a chat or send an email and i'll get back to you.

My approach to counselling is Integrative, meaning I am able to adapt my way of working to meet your individual needs. I have experience of working with a wide variety of issues including, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, suicidal ideation, self-harm, family and relationship issues and supporting individuals through times of grief and loss and those living with life-limiting illness.
