6 Frederick Street
Hi my name is Clare and I work in the South of Leicestershire in a private practice as an integrative counsellor, within a person-centred approach. I am offering you a comfortable and private space so that we can work together through any issues that you may bring to the session. Within this non-judgemental and confidential setting you will have time to explore, reflect and understand your emotions, feelings and what is happening to you, wherever you are in your life right now.
Working within the Integrative approach of therapy means that I can draw upon different models of counselling to support you. By being presented with the right tools at the right times, you can take control to move forward or assist a shift in perception. Simply by being heard can often be the catalyst to your healing.
If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
As I realise that the first session is full of mixed emotions, questions and answers, I offer you a free initial consultation.
