Clare Price- Bsc Hons, PG Cert, PG Dip, MBACP.
Hi, I am a fully qualified, experienced integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist (level 7). This means I draw from three main approaches, Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This approach gives the ability to tailor counselling to meet your individual needs.
I aim to provide a safe confidential space where you can feel non-judged, supported and valued. I work within the BACP framework for ethical practice providing counselling to adults, young people and couples.
I believe that everyone is a unique individual with the potential to determine their own lives. I seek to treat you with respect and dignity while we work together to explore and gain a deeper sense of your issues. I am empathic and as a Counsellor I feel privileged to work with you, helping you reach goals and the changes you desire. Looking at your problems from different perspectives can result in them becoming easier to manage and within your control.
Problems have often gone on for a long time and can feel overwhelming. Sharing your problems with someone who is able to assist you to work through them, at a pace that best suits you can help you to move forward. Change is within you.
I offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee therapists, individuals and groups. I have experience of providing supervision to multi-disciplinary staff within an organisational setting. I also provide supervision to individuals and groups in educational settings (University and further education), charities, support services and private practice.
I supervise student counsellors and I am happy to write reports required by training providers.
As a supervisor I aim to offer a supportive learning environment, a space to explore and reflect on your counselling practice. Assisting you to extend your knowledge and be creative within your counselling practice. Working with you through ethical dilemmas that arise as we revisit your client work within supervision.
