Hello, My name is Claudine, www.claudinehullcounselling.com
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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
