Claire Tint MBACP, Dip.Couns. MSc.
Seeking counselling can be both a relief and a daunting prospect. You may, for example, be experiencing a particularly difficult life event, persistent emotional difficulties or a lack of direction. Allowing yourself the time to explore your issue with a fully trained, empathic therapist can help you discover the route back to where you want to be.
During the therapeutic process my focus is to create a warm and relaxed relationship - I will be there listening empathically and non-judgmentally to you. I have a down to earth character and am not averse to encouraging humour in the counselling process when suitable!
Not only am I trained in several counselling theory models, I also have experienced my own personal fears and difficulties, which, I believe, allows me to understand my clients even more acutely.
I ensure that our sessions are safe, secure and confidential. Working closely together we will develop a strong therapeutic relationship within which we will be able to explore your experiences, feelings and behaviours.
Collaboratively we will devise a realistic contract for us to follow, which will be driven by your needs and wishes of how you would like to make changes in your life.
As well as working face to face I also offer online counselling to all my clients.
