About me

Hi, my name is Clare.

I am a person centred counsellor based in Surbiton, Surrey.

I am down to earth, warm, and professional, and I have lived through many of life’s challenges. If you need to talk to someone who is not a friend or family member, and if you want to be truly heard, perhaps I could help.

I respect your autonomy and will support you without judgement. Together maybe we can work things out.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at an institute in SW London on an accredited BA Person Centred Counselling course.

I’ve worked as a volunteer at a counselling agency offering subsidised counselling.

I’ve also worked at a local bereavement service for the last 4 years.

Recently I set up in private practice.
