Clare Wells BA hons Dip.H.G.
I am a mature and experienced counsellor using the Human Givens Solution Focused approach and specialising in anxiety and trauma. I can help you to recognise your strengths and resources, change unhelpful patterns of behaviour, communicate clearly and calm anxiety. I work creatively with metaphor and stories, and the best scientific knowledge available. It is a practical, positive forward-focused approach, which concentrates on mastery of skills such as anger management and relaxation that people can use in the future to move on in their lives, rather than concentrating on, and being stuck in, what went wrong in the past.
I work with adults, young people and couples and I also offer Counselling Supervision.
I use comfortable private rooms at Hebden Bridge Therapy Center with disabled access.

The number of sessions is entirely up to you the client, but commitment to a few sessions will be the most productive. I try to be as flexible as possible to find a day and time that suits you. Payments can be made by cash or cheque at the end of each session.
Supervision fees are £50 per session.
My Degree training is in a person centered approach but my style today I would call integrative, using the best of CBT and especially the Human Givens solution focused approach.
