About me

You don't have to solve your whole life overnight. And you don't have to feel ashamed for being where you are. All you have to do is focus on one small thing you can do today to get closer to where you want to be. Slowly and lightly. One step at a time you can get there.

Hello, my name is Claudia, if you’re reading this you've taken the first step on your journey. I am a professionally, qualified person-centred children, young persons, people and family’s Counsellor working from various locations in and around the London area. I offer a confidential, independent and ethical, one-to-one & couples counselling including group therapy in person or on the telephone.

Our counselling relationship will be based on mutual acceptance, respect and trust. This will encourage you to become more open during the counselling process. This openness will in turn lead to deeper insight, healing and progress.

I have 20+years counselling experience, 15 of which within a local authority, working with adults and children from all backgrounds, and a wide range of issues. I specialise in mental health assessments of children, adolescents and families as well as couples.

If you are experiencing distress or dissatisfaction in your life in some way, I will listen to you and offer my assistance. I will provide the space and time for you to see and choose how to go forward. I will provide a warm and supportive environment in which you can be yourself without fear of judgement.

I offer both individual and group therapy. My areas of training and experience are:

* Trauma: Bereavement: Eating Disorders: Depression: Anxiety: Anger: Identity: Family Conflict

Self-Harm:  Divorce/separation: Autism.

Come and spend some time with me to decide if I am the right person to help you.
