Clare Walters BA (Hons), MBCAP (Reg), Counsellor/ Psychotherapist
My priority as a counsellor is my clients well being at a time when they may be struggling, overwhelmed or finding life confusing and difficult. I am a Humanistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist, offering short or long term counselling and both day and evening sessions in Farnham and Guildford. I invite you to read my profile to see if i may be the right counsellor for you. I am also happy to answer any questions you may have by phone or email.
Our busy lives can feel overwhelming, leading to anxiety, stress and depression, or you may be facing a crisis or major change such as chronic illness, bereavement, divorce or trauma. Counselling can provide a safe, confidential place for us to explore together your issues and concerns. We will focus on how you live your life, what it is like to be you, explore your patterns of behaviour, inner resources and strengths, in order to help you to develop greater self-awareness which can lead to increased well-being, possibilities for change and empowerment.
As a counsellor i offer a supportive, respectful, caring and confidential environment which encourages self-acceptance and hope for building a happier life. My training allows me to be flexible and adapt to your individual needs as therapy progresses. I will work at a pace which suits you, allowing you the time and space to gain deeper understanding of a particular issue you want to work on.
I offer 50 minute sessions and work with adults, young people aged over 16 and older adults.

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists MBACP
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.
