Clare Price MBACP
I'm Clare and I am qualified and fully insured counsellor and psychotherapist based in Newmillerdam, Wakefield, WF2, easily accessible from Wakefield, Barnsley and South Leeds. I work with people who are feeling stuck and want to feel better.
Are you feeling; overwhelmed & unable to see a way through; alone with no one to share your difficulties with; stressed and 'frazzled' from work; trapped or bored with your current circumstances? Are you struggling after a bereavement or the end of a relationship? Have you experienced a traumatic event or childhood abuse? These are just some scenarios in which counselling can help you understand your current feelings and situation, identifying how you would like to be & if there are any patterns getting in the way.
I use a range of theories and techniques adapting the way I work to your needs. You may find just having a safe space to focus on you is healing in itself. We may choose some additional ways to work together such as exploring the impact of past relationships or using specific techniques and activities. I provide a safe, confidential and supportive space where we can explore your difficulties and work towards helping you see a way forward.
I will provide you with a safe, confidential & supportive space where we can explore your difficulties & work towards helping you see a way forward. I understand that taking the first step to access counselling can feel nerve wracking so please feel free to contact me by phone, text or email to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor and have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (distinction) from Leeds Beckett University. I am also a qualified Occupational Therapist and have a Master's Degree in Dementia Studies.
Mental Health Before training to become a counsellor and psychotherapist I worked in the NHS in mental health, predominantly working with older people. I have also counselled people who had been diagnosed with anxiety and depression in the NHS.
Bereavement I am experienced in supporting people following a bereavement, whether that be a recent bereavement or a bereavement that happened years ago. I currently work part-time for Cruse Bereavement in Leeds who offer bereavement support to a range of clients. I provide freelance bereavement training for Leeds Bereavement Forum. I have a special interest in making bereavement support accessible for people with learning disabilities.
Abuse and Sexual Violence For half a day a week I work for a charity specialising in supporting women following sexual violence. I have a special interest in supporting both men and women who have experienced sexual abuse in childhood.
Disability As an occupational therapist I have worked with people with a range of disabilities including physical disabilities, learning disabilities and dementia. Ensuring my practice is accessible to people with disabilities is really important to me. My room in Newmillerdam, Wakefield is accessible via a shallow ramp (no stairs) which may be helpful if you are a wheelchair user or find stairs difficult. I will consider home visits where a disability makes it difficult for you to access my therapy room.
