Clare Pointon (BA, Msc, BACP Reg.)
I am a highly experienced psychotherapist and mental health trainer specialising in integrative therapy for relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression, a range of mental health difficulties and personal development. I am registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP.)
I have worked in the profession for 20 years and am also experienced with self-esteem, trauma, loss, separation, family issues, identity (personal, sexual and gender), sexual difficulties, infertility, work life, parenting, personal development and life change.
With a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy, I am able to draw on a range of approaches to choose the best fit for you and your needs.
I work with adults and young adults in Farnham at a location where there is easy access by bus, train and car.
I know it can be hard to reach out for help and will do my best to make the process as easy and comfortable as I can. I am happy to talk by phone before meeting and to answer any questions you may have.
