Hello I'm Claire, I work within 'A New Day Counselling Practice' and I am a fully qualified, professional and experienced Counsellor offering a comprehensive, accessible and flexible service across private and commercial settings.
My approach to counselling is primarily Person-Centred. However, knowledge gained through further training, including humanistic, psychodynamic, C.B.T. and group therapies, enables me to support an integrated relationship focussed on the individual client’s needs and expectations.
My counselling experience includes working with clients who have shared a range of issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, relationships, addiction, domestic abuse, sexual/incest abuse, eating disorders, self harm, parenting, disability discrimination, cultural difference, loneliness, work related problems and many other concerns.
My aim as a counsellor is to provide a safe and supportive environment built on trust, mutuality, respect, in a non-judgemental manner and offering empathy to all my clients. Given the right environment I will facilitate you to explore your experiences and gain a greater understanding which may lead to increased clarity and the identification of choices and possibilities. I will work with you to explore your individual needs and requirements, at your own pace, respecting your autonomy and abiding by the ethics and principles of my profession and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
As a member of the BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure. I access regular independent Supervision in accordance with BACP guidelines, to ensure I am always working within the very best interests of my clients.
My premises are offered in safe and comfortable settings, in Dinnington.I am also able to offer workplace counselling within Employers premises.
I can be contacted by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
