Thank you for clicking to find out more. I offer a non-judgemental breathing space in which you put the World on hold and, with no one making demands on you, reflect, pinpoint what's really troubling you, get to the root cause then choose what, if anything, you want to do about it.
Uppermost in your mind may be “Claire, can you help me?” and “How on Earth do I pick which therapy is best for me out of buzzwords like 'CBT', 'Humanistic', 'Psychodynamic', 'Person Centred' etc?”
I am an integrative-relational counsellor meaning once I have met you, I pick the best from several types of therapy creating a blend tailored to you, your needs and preferences.
Research shows of all the factors determining how well therapy goes our 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.
It is hard 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 please.
I work with patients at a GP surgery, clients at a BACP accredited charity offering counselling for anxiety and depression and run my private practice in Weybridge. 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. I specialise in working with those wrestling with binge/over-eating.
