About me

Hello, my name is Claire Shaw and welcome to my page. Are you feeling anxious, depressed or even suicidal? Regardless of life events, we can all at some point in our lives feel overwhelmed, whether that is due to a painful bereavement, relationship breakdown, in fact anything that has left you struggling with life and unable to process how we feel with regards our emotions. Have you experienced a painful event in your life which has left you feeling numb and unable to process?

I work in Private Practice and offer a warm, empathic safe space where you can share your thoughts and feelings confidentially with me without the fear of being judged. Together, we will work explore your world and I will help and support you along the journey. It may seem daunting asking for help; discussing your most personal, painful life experiences with what seems like a stranger. I am here to help you develop an insight in to why you feel the way you do and together we can make you feel understood, supported, safe and validated. Call me for a free consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my training at The University of Nottingham in 2019 and gained a first class honours degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice.

I have experience working within Primary and Secondary Schools. I have also worked for charities supporting those recovering from drug/alcohol problems and vulnerable adults I enjoy working with clients with a range of issues, from bereavement to anxiety and everything in between.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
