Thank you for clicking my entry to find out more. You are probably wondering Claire, can you help me? and How do I know which type of therapy is best for me?
At this stage the honest answer is I don’t know for sure if I can help, I hope so. The odds are good that I can in that I am a member of the teams delivering counselling to patients at two busy Surrey GP surgeries and a BACP accredited charity offering counselling for anxiety and depression from three Surrey locations.
I also run a private practice from my base in Weybridge and before I was a counsellor I worked for 28 years in the private sector so have insight into the stresses and strains of balancing work and Life and experience of Life’s ups and downs generally. I specialise in working with those wrestling with binge/over-eating.
It is hard for us to get the measure of each other from just a photo and a profile of me and an email or a phone call from you so I’d suggest an initial chemistry test session.
I am an integrative-relational counsellor meaning once I have met you, I pick the best from several types of therapy to make a blend tailored to you. Like a bespoke scent made specially for you rather than offering the same perfume to all.
Research shows that of all the factors determining how well therapy goes our therapeutic relationship accounts for 30% of likely success, hence relational and my studying a degree which taught me how to make best use of our relationship.
