About me

Hello, My name is Claudine,

*COVID-19 Update*

During the present Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. I am offering telephone, online (Zoom) and Face Time counselling to both existing and new clients.

I work as an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor and believe that everyone given the right conditions is capable of making use of their own inner resources to enable personal growth, self-awareness and healing.

I believe the humanistic approach enables counselling to be uniquely tailored to you by using three different modalities of Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt theories so that you can see what works for you.

I am a fully qualified registered counsellor having completed a BACP Accredited Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a member, I'm bound by and adhere to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.

I see our relationship being fundamental in establishing a therapeutic, empathic, non-judgemental, confidential space. I believe developing a relationship with you is central to working collaboratively and effectively.

"Human beings in their essence are born in connection, they are hurt when they feel disconnected, and healed again in re-connection".

Hedy Schleifer, 2019.

This maybe the first time you've decided to come for counselling, or your returning to explore further. What ever the issue(s), counselling enables you the space to explore and work with your feelings in the here and now. To seek new ways of dealing with the past, and/or to find ways to resource yourself, that free you from old patterns of behaviour or coping strategies that may limit you to experiencing life fully. I believe I can help you, you don't need to suffer alone. We can work on a short or long term basis with the emphasis being led by you.

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.
