Woman To Woman Counselling & Psychotherapy - Clare Fillingham MNCS Accred, PGDip
My passion is to prize and value the person that you are whilst walking with you towards the person you want to be.
I am currently only offering telephone and video therapy.
Being a woman in our society is extremely complex and your experiences are unique to you. Within this understanding we can work on a range of issues together which may include, but are not limited to general life difficulties, women's issues, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationships, bereavement and abuse (emotional and/or physical). My aim is to enable you to address your needs in a safe and effective therapeutic relationship.
I believe it is quite normal to experience distress and difficulties in our lives, to varying degrees of severity. Having counselling and psychotherapy can be a very positive way of dealing with things that have happened to us in life which have caused disturbance. Although it can be a difficult process, if approached with commitment, it can be extremely effective.
Your initial session is held at a reduced rate. This gives you the opportunity to introduce me to your concerns and decide if I am the right therapist for you. We can also explore together how you might like to proceed. For example, you may have specific goals you would like to work towards or you might like the counselling to unfold naturally. This can be a difficult process but I will respond to you with care, sensitivity and without judgement, so you will feel at ease during the sessions whatever you bring.
Counselling in the Countryside
If you love being outdoors or just feel you would benefit from the opportunity of therapy in the countryside then this could be the way forward for you.There is more information about this on the website.
Training, qualifications & experience
Foundations in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Cert)
Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (NCS Accredited) PGDip
Natural and Human Environments BSc (Hons)
Landscape Archaeology MA
I have experience predominantly in caring and supporting women of all ages. More recently this involved working with vulnerable women living chaotic lifestyles. This reignited the interest I had in counselling and psychotherapy at an earlier stage in my life. Whilst working with this group of women, I qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
Initially I did the Foundation Course and then gained the Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at The Academy SPACE in Sheffield.
Working with women aged 18 - 80, I have successfully helped my clients address a wide range of concerns through Hallam Caring Services, the University of Sheffield Counselling Service, Eva and Sheffield Woman to Woman Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My previous academic career, which I conducted part-time during my thirties, was in Landscape Studies:- Natural and Human Environments BSc (Hons) and Landscape Archaeology MA. These help to inform my approach to Counselling in the Countryside and Landscape Therapy which is enhanced by my own ongoing interest and active engagement with it.
