Claudia Voss, MBACP (reg) Counsellor and Therapist, BSc Psych
I am a qualified humanistic counsellor and therapist, and offer, short-term and long-term one-to-one counselling.
As a humanistic counsellor I take a holistic approach in understanding the unique experiences of my clients and their lives, the relationship with oneself, others, and the world around them. I value the uniqueness of every individual and provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental therapeutic environment. Clients can express themselves freely, can feel understood, reflect on their experiences and recognise their inner resources and strength. I believe with the right support, using empathy and acceptance, there is the potential for positive change, healing and growth to take place.
I recognise that people come to therapy for a variety of reasons and want different things. You may be facing a challenging period, struggling to cope, experiencing painful emotions or just want to understand yourself a bit better. Talking to a counsellor and exploring the difficulties you are experiencing in a confidential environment may be a way forward for you. I will support you in finding your own insights, understandings and resolutions to the conflicts and difficulties you are undergoing, building your resilience or overcoming past destructive patterns to live a more fulfilling life in the present.

Why you might chose online counselling.
- It saves you time
- It is often offered at a lower fee
- You may feel more comfortable working with a counsellor who is not local to you
- If you are away from home, you don't have to miss your session
- It can offer greater flexibility regarding session times, if you lead a busy live
- You may find leaving home difficult, emotional or physical challenging. Online video counselling may be a start working towards being able to meet face-to-face.
