Claudine van de Vyver Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist MBACP
I have a warm, down to earth approach which enables me to help clients to build a sense of self and the resilience to grow within themselves. I work to identify healthier ways of managing emotions and stress. I practice in London Bridge and Fitzroy Square and offer a FREE first session.
How I work with you
I work instinctively with each person who seeks my help and adapt my style to integrate with your particular requirements. I am deeply passionate about finding compassion and kindness for ourselves, (arguably the hardest thing of all), however I believe they are the cornerstone to life and wellness. I do not just sit and listen, and I do not have all the answers. I have a firm belief that all people have inherent worth and deserve to be loved and this is the key to healthy relationships and connections
How counselling can help
Everyday normality can sometimes seem difficult when we are not being heard or noticed. Counselling can allow you to break free of unhealthy behavioural patterns and belief systems. I believe that throughout our lives we need different things at different times as we evolve. There are many ways of working with people to help relieve their psychological pain, which I myself have also experienced.
I specialise in anxiety, childhood trauma, anger, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and have a particular passion for working with those enable them to promote personal growth and a more balanced life. My own personal journey through childhood, family divorce, marriage and motherhood along with PTSD initiated my desire to work in the emotional/mental health space.
Other Issues I frequently work with :
Marital and Premarital
Sleep or Insomnia
Testing and Evaluation
Trauma and PTSD
