Clare Cohen UKCP MBACP
I have been in practise as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist since 2000. I offer my clients an opportunity to understand and make sense of their current difficulties in a confidential, safe and non judgemental space. The aim is always to find a realistic, effective and lasting way forward towards an improved quality of life.
I offer long and short term face to face sessions to adults and adolescents. I also offer assessments.
The first session is usually an assessment. We will look at the presenting problem and any thoughts and feelings you have about counselling, whilst at the same time you will get a sense of how I work and whether or not you wish to pursue further sessions.
Sometimes it can be useful to take 2 or 3 sessions for an assessment if you are particularly unsure about pursuing counselling, or unsure which type of counselling will be most helpful or appropriate for you.
Short term counselling (6-10 session) can be useful for enabling you to pin point your difficulties, make some sense of them and find strategies for different ways of managing, for example, mild anxiety, some relationship issues.
Longer term work is particularly helpful where the difficulties are more entrenched and complex and as a result further exploration is needed, for example, long term depression, complex bereavement, issues with anger, addictions, long term relationship difficulties, panic attacks or sexual identity issues.
It is often useful to look at family relationships and history, as well as the current present day problem as they can be connected.
Working from an integrative theoretical basis allows for a flexible and creative way of working and responding to the particular need of each individual client.
My practise is in central Brixton, about 1 minutes walk from Brixton tube (victoria line) and a variety of bus routes servicing Streatham, Herne Hill, Clapham, Camberwell and Kennington.
