About me

Hi, I am Claire and I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and member of the National Counselling Society.

TEMPORARY UPDATE:  Due to the recent covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and the latest government announcements I have taken the decision to temporarily stop doing any office based sessions until the current situation improves. I will however continue to be fully available for counselling and therapy sessions by video links such as Skype or Facetime.
This action is to ensure as much as possible the physical and mental well being of all my clients.
I hope you understand the need for this temporary measure.

Mental illness is a phrase often used to describe the debilitating effects caused by the onset of many ordinary sounding everyday conditions such as:-

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Bereavement
  • PTSD

This is just a short example of the many things that can cause people to say to you:-

  • "get over it"
  • "don't worry so much"
  • "it'll all work out."

Unfortunately for the sufferer it's just not that easy, if only it were you wouldn't feel the way you do.

Mental illness, just like any other illness doesn't care where it strikes either. It doesn't matter if you are rich or poor, famous or not, talented or just an ordinary family person working hard to take care of their loved ones, it can strike anyone, any time.

I do have some idea of how you are feeling right now as I also suffered from Anxiety for many years. In fact this is what spurred me on to study Psychotherapy and  become a therapist and counsellor and be able to help others who are suffering the same way I did.

By visiting this directory today you have taken the very first and most important step in recognising that you have a problem and are looking for a solution.

I offer you a safe and secure environment in which to listen to you and work with you in a completely non judgemental and confidential way to help you to explore the roots of your issues so that you can find your way to overcome them.

I use a "Person Centred" approach which incorporates a variety of psychotherapy methods and techniques suited to your particular needs.

I invite you to take the second step now by clicking the contact button and I will respond within 24 hours.
