Clare Fowler Counselling
I am an experienced and accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor located in North Devon, where I provide individual counselling in the privacy and safe surroundings of my counselling room in Candar, Ilfracombe for Male & Female adults, aged 18 years and over.
I also offer 1-2-1 sessions by Skype for those who may find difficulty meeting in person.
I am an Integrative practitioner, which means that I have studied all of the main theories of psychotherapy, such as psychodynamic, person centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), amongst others.
Being an Integrative practitioner, means that I can draw upon a broad range of skills, bringing flexibility to our work. I work with the client at the centre of my practice, so we can be sure we find a style that suits you.
As life throws all kinds of difficulties our way and whilst we manage to deal with most, we can find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and unsure of how to get back on track. Maybe you are experiencing feelings that you don’t understand and need help to find your way through the fog, or maybe you know what you would like to explore but need someone who can listen and support you.
I am here to help you find a way to understand how you are feeling and my goal is to help you navigate your way through your journey and out of the fog.
