Claire Wilson MBACP
Feeling stuck? At a crossroads in your career or emotional life? Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed or stressed and don't really know where to begin to move forward. Or perhaps you really cannot see the wood for the trees. Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times.
I will offer you a safe and non-judgemental environment for us to explore how you are feeling. I offer person centred counselling which means that you decide on what you would like to bring into therapy. As a counsellor I have experience in working with a variety of different issues as well as working with a wide range of clients on both a short and long term basis.
I am based in a quiet part of Ampthill (Bedfordshire) where I have a Therapy room in my home. There is off-road parking available for your convenience.
I am fully insured and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
