Clare Pearl PG Dip Adv Counselling and Psychotherapy
I provide counselling and psychotherapy via zoom, or face to face at the Wellness Space in Todmorden (following strict Covid-19 safety guidelines) and also outdoors, sometimes using the environment to help inform us in the work. I offer a confidential relationship where your concerns will be treated with utmost respect.
I have regular supervision, one to one and with a peer group to help me practice safely and effectively.
My primary training was in the person-centred approach, where I developed trust in our inner search for wellness, balance and fulfillment. Therapy can be a place where we can look at what is obstructing our search and how we might habitually self-sabotage our own wishes for a better life.
I have also trained and have experience in shamanic journeywork, wild therapy, bereavement and loss and mindfulness practices and have particular interest in including the body in the therapeutic process.
In my work as an Online Bereavement Counsellor for a national charity I have supported many people experiencing loss in what can be one of the most painful times of life.
Wild therapy, or work outdoors with the environment can be profoundly effective in helping us understand the roots of a problem. It can bring us gently to the edges of the place within us that needs our attention. Without the support of a therapeutic relationship, human or non-human, it can be difficult to get close to the real issue and find healing.
I find some of the most effective moments in therapy are humorous. And when we get insights or realisations about ourselves they often come with a sense of release and a new energy for life.
If you would like to begin by having an informal, no obligation chat by telephone or email please just get in touch. Alternatively, contact me by text, phone or email to arrange an initial appointment and I will send you a link to zoom or make arrangements to meet you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
