About me

Hello, I'm Claudia (she/her), a person-centered psychotherapist based in Bristol. My therapeutic approach is centered on creating a safe and welcoming space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

I hold justice and equality as fundamental values in my practice. I specialise in working affirmatively with LGBTQIA+ individuals, those engaged in alternative relationship dynamics like kink or polyamory, and anyone on a journey to discover what gender, sexuality, or identity mean in their lives and relationships. Additionally, I'm here to help you with a wide range of concerns such as trauma, anxiety, abuse, stress or life transitions.

Each person's story is unique and complex, and I'm dedicated to embracing whatever you chose to bring to the therapy sessions. My aim is to cultivate trust, respect, and a collaborative spirit in our therapeutic relationship.

I have a genuine interest in the vast spectrum of human experiences, and my ultimate goal is to support you as you navigate your narrative and emotions at your own comfortable pace. When you feel stuck or confused, I employ active, compassionate listening techniques to guide you forward. Together, we can embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor with an MSc in Person-Centred Psychotherapy from the University of Strathclyde. I work online with clients in the UK and throughout Europe. Sessions can be held in both English and Swedish.

I also hold a BSc in Gender Studies and have worked for several years for an organisation that works with sexual and reproductive health, rights and education. This work has deepened my understanding of issues relating to identity, sexuality, communication, consent and the nurturing of mutually satisfying relationships. It has also shaped my approach to creating a non-judgemental space for clients to feel safe discussing topics such as intimacy and desire.

I have worked with organisations that deliver counselling to persons who have experienced mild to severe childhood trauma, domestic abuse, neurodivergence, C-PTSD, depression etc. 

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.
