Claire Pollard MBACP AD(dip)
Thank you for visiting this page. My name is Claire Pollard and I am BACP registered and a fully qualified experienced integrative counsellor. I work with children, teenagers and adults. My integrative approach to therapy means I combine different counselling theories and am able to accommodate different individuals needs.
I believe that when we experience a difficult time in our life it is important to be able to ask for help and have a space to explore the challenges and emotional difficulties we are facing. I believe in creating a non-judgemental and safe environment in therapy and this is very important to my work.
I offer both short and long term therapy and have an interest in working creatively with clients.
In the first session we will have the opportunity to talk about what brings you to counselling and decide if you feel comfortable with me and the setting I provide.
I believe I am an open, empathetic counsellor that is continuing to learn and wanting to help others. For more information please contact me on 07753397070/ or email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
