Claire Ryall MBACP (Accred)
About me and my Service:

I also offer Bright Heart experiences in Nature and Equine Assisted Therapy and Wellbeing sessions from April through to October - working with the ponies and donkey in nature. Please see my website for more details.
I am well located to offer counselling to Service Personnel & family members - offering Professional awareness of the particular problems experienced by Service personnel and families.

I also offer Parent Support and Advice to parents of children of all ages and have worked as a Comprehensive school counsellor since 2003.
I have worked as the school counsellor and held mindfulness groups at an Independent boarding school since 2016.
About my approach:
My therapeutic approach includes Humanistic, Integrative, Transpersonal and Systemic themes. I use CBT techniques as part of my therapeutic approach. I include the use of visualisations or relaxation techniques to help bring balance, but always in a safe and nurturing environment; and I offer my clients Bach flower remedies, if required.
Counselling can lead to Improved self-esteem and confidence, can help develop a greater sense of worthiness and can help improve personal relationships, work issues, and sporting performance.
It is my belief that each client is unique, and has individual needs, values and priorities. We work together to draw on that inner capacity for positive change, that we all have deep down.
