About me

Hi. My name is Clare Power. First, I would like to thank you for taking time to view my profile. I would like to share with you a little bit about myself and my journey.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and I work as an integrative counsellor. Methods I use are person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). We will work with whichever method best suits your needs. I am registered with the BACP and work in accordance to its ethical framework.

Coming to counselling can be emotionally difficult and that is understandable. I myself suffer from depression and anxiety. One time in my life I felt like I was in a dark tunnel and could not see a way out. I also know what it is like to live with physical pain as I suffer from fibromyalgia, it is a syndrome that effects muscles and soft tissue and comes with debilitating pain that can also affect you emotionally. I was able to find the right counsellor and through therapy and by working together with my counsellor I began to build trust and started to get better.

Because of the way you are feeling now it is probably hard for you to comprehend that you can get better. But believe me it is possible! I know that, not just from my studies when becoming a counsellor, but from my own personal experience.
Finding the correct counsellor is paramount as this is key in helping you on your journey. I am very open and honest person, I am not there to judge you in any way. I am very passionate about my work and together we will explore your situation and I will help you find solutions to any difficulties you are experiencing. I offer you a safe place to talk about anything and reflect on your life.

I offer one-to-one counselling in the Ballymena area. I wish you will contact me to arrange an appointment. Thank you for taking time to read my profile.

I look forward to hearing from 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.
