About me

Hi there, nice to meet you. My name is Clare Kupfer. I am primarily a Person Centred Counsellor with a strong foundation in Carl Rogers approach. I qualified as a Counsellor in 2005. I have since worked as a therapist first in a bereavement service, MIND and for the past 15 years for the NHS.

I qualified in Creative Clinical Supervision in 2016 with Jenni Biancardi Consultancy. This confirmed an interest in working Creatively with clients and for personal development. Following this I attended Jungian SoulCollage workshops and trained in Expressive Art Therapy with Dinah Brown and also Creative Connections Cumbria.

Expressive Art Therapy was created by Natalie Rogers, Carl Rogers' daughter.  I have found working creatively helps you access unexpressed emotion and a deeper understanding of Self. So I may tentatively offer creative ways of working with you.

My strengths are in building self-acceptance and self-esteem. Helping you to release pain and difficulty from the past, to increase awareness of what you want and to reach for your most authentic You.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
