About me

Hello and welcome!

I’m really pleased you’re taking a few moments to read my page, because reaching out for help can sometimes be daunting. I'm Robert Clayton PNCPS (Acc.) of Clayton Therapy, an NCPS Accredited Professional member. Sometimes, life can throw a lot of challenges our way. So, if you're feeling worried, anxious, depressed, dealing with anger, coping with trauma, bereavement or struggling with change, or maybe something else, please get in touch, I'm here to help. We can explore your ‘lived experience’ and ‘what’s happened’ in a very safe and confidential way. 

Getting the right help 

Therapy is very much about building a positive and trusting therapeutic relationship and helping clients to make positive changes. I will adapt the therapeutic approach to meet your unique and specific needs. I am here to support you in that process, and your therapeutic journey. I practice as an integrative Counsellor/ Therapist (by the way, those terms can be used interchangeably if your wondering and new to therapy), using different modalities, or types of therapy, in a collaborative process with my clients to best suit them and their needs. My base modality is person centred/ humanistic therapy. (Please see the link below if you want more information on this) I also practice other therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Get in touch:
