About me

Hello and welcome to my page.

My name is Clara and I am an experienced BACP registered  counsellor and psychotherapist.  I work with adults and young people and offer a safe, non judgemental and supportive space to explore your personal experiences.

I work in a person centred way which means that our sessions are led by you, the client, at a pace that suits you.

My aim is to listen, understand and work together with you to offer a new understanding and practical tools to help you explore your experience at a deeper level.  Through our work together I will help you find clarity in any problems or experiences you are facing and make empowered changes and choices helping you move forward in a fulfilling way.

I provide face to face and online counselling for adults and young people  from all backgrounds and have helped people through the following: anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, school and exam stress, sexual, physical and emotional assault, domestic violence, bullying, loss, bereavement and grief.

I have experience with adolescents and young people and have worked in a college and school environment.

Considering counselling can feel like a big step for some people so please do contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about how the process works.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
