Claudia Nielsen PhD, MA Psych & Couns - UKCP BACP BSCAH
I have over 25 years experience of working with individuals and couples, 13 of which in the NHS. I now work solely in private practice.
My approach is integrative and collaborative, and I work with all issues. Whether it is depression, panic attacks, relationship problems, a weight issue, phobias or low self esteem, I see it all as part of a bigger picture and will work with it as such.
The work is an exploration of what is preventing the client from being empowered to be the person they are meant to be, and finding options to free themselves from those shackles.
When appropriate and with mutual agreement, I use hypnosis as an adjunct to therapy. Hypnosis is not a magic bullet but helps to understand deeper sometimes unrecognised emotional issues.
The first session is considered an assessment by both parties and is free.
My website has more information on who I am and how I work.
