About me

Hello I'm Clara and thank you for visiting my page.

Talking to someone about issues you may be facing can often be difficult, so well done for making that first step. Searching for a counsellor can also prove difficult and it is important to find the right one for you. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between you and your counsellor.

There are many approaches to counselling and as a qualified Integrative Counsellor, I'm not limited to one method and I work with several theoretical approaches such as Person Centred, Gestalt, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Transactional Analysis. I also offer creative ways of working which can help where it is difficult to find the words, often working with your unconscious.

I work with a whole person approach and will tailor therapy to your individual needs and personal circumstances. I offer a warm, caring, non-judgemental and collaborative approach to support you on your journey of self exploration. I will be alongside you in your healing, realising your potential and discovery of how to live your best life.

I have experience of working with stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, ADHD, PTSD, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, addiction, attachment, relationship issues, parenting, carers, end of life and bereavement.

I provide a safe and confidential environment in a peaceful, warm and spacious room just yards from the ocean. Should you decide to contact me we will have an initial meeting and decide together if counselling could be helpful. I offer both short and longer term work. Sessions will last 60 minutes usually weekly at a time agreed. I can provide longer sessions at request

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
