About me

Hello my name is Claire, thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Life can be difficult at times and sometimes extra help and support can make all the difference. I am a qualified Integrative counsellor, hypnotherapist, life coach and trainer. I work with a diverse range of problems and issues. I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I work with individuals and couples. I offer you a friendly, easily accessible and practical approach to help you solve your problems in our comfortable and welcoming practice in Clitheroe in Lancashire.

I use a range of different techniques including Person Centred Counselling, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis and Advanced Hypnotherapy.

My whole career of 35 years has been spent supporting people through their problems and helping find solutions.  I have worked in a variety of different settings including family support, womens' health, education, NHS, research and private practice.  During this time I have heard so many recounts about lives, relationships, expereinces and problems, enough to understand that each problem that is brought to therapy is unique and as such needs an approach that is designed specifically for that individual and integrative counselling offers that.

If you are interested in counselling, but maybe you have some doubts, worries or questions, call me and talk it through and then make a decision once you know the facts. Telephone 07736067981
