Dr Clare Mansfield Psychotherapist and Counselling Psychologist
I am a warm, approachable, mature psychotherapist, who will engage fully with whatever issues you bring. Clients come to me with many different problems: some have anxiety and may be experiencing panic attacks or symptoms of OCD; some have suffered loss or trauma; some are struggling with relationships; some feel depressed and unfulfilled; some simply feel stuck. I believe that by offering a confidential space and the rare opportunity for real attention to be paid to the individual, psychotherapy can help. Central to my work is the actual relationship I have with my clients: I offer a non-judgemental, supportive context, where any thoughts and feelings can be brought into the room and safely explored together.
My training is in integrative psychotherapy: to me, this is both about integrating different psychotherapeutic approaches and helping a client to integrate the different parts of themselves. For all of us, the past influences the present, and exploring this can often be instrumental in moving forward to a more fulfilling life, and a greater sense of being alive.
I am registered (under the name Dr Margaret Clare Mansfield) with AXA PPP, Aviva and Vitalityhealth private medical insurance.
I also, with my brother, Tim Mansfield, facilitate one-off QUAD sessions for couples who are seeking to resolve a choice or problem they are facing. For more information, see http://www.quadsessions.com
