Introduction
Hi, I'm Claire and I'm a qualified person-centred counsellor offering online and phone counselling to adults.

Are you feeling anxious or struggling?

-This could be through a bereavement, or difficulties in a relationship
-Perhaps health issues such as chronic illness, disability or menopause have affected how you are feeling
-Maybe work is causing you stress, or you have been made redundant

Do you feel misunderstood or not heard?

-Maybe you don’t have somewhere you feel supported to be yourself and to speak freely
-Perhaps you feel like you don't have anyone to talk to who understands
-You may need a place to be heard and to explore your feelings

How can I help?

-I offer a warm, non-judgmental, and empathic space where you can feel safe to explore your feelings and work through your experiences
-This can help develop your self-awareness and confidence
-I can support you in finding acceptance of what has happened in your life, or in making changes

Further Information

No matter what your situation is, counselling can provide a space which is confidential, supportive and affirming so that you can work through what matters to you at the pace that suits you, to help you through even the most difficult times.

As a person-centred therapist, I won’t direct you or give you advice. This way of working holds you at the centre, in the belief that only you are the expert in what is right for you. Guided by you, together we can look at and work through what is troubling you.

I've been in therapy myself, and I understand that it's not always easy to make the first step and approach a counsellor. I try to make this as straightforward and reassuring as possible.

Although each person’s situation is unique, some of the many issues I work with include:

-Bereavement and other losses;
-Exploring gender, sex and relationship diversity, and offering an affirming approach to LGBTQ+
clients;
-Chronic illness and disability;
-Relationship issues;
-The impact of the pandemic and COVID-19.

I qualified with a First Class BA (Hons) and Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from the Metanoia Institute, which is affiliated to Middlesex University.

I have worked in a number of counselling settings in London, including being Lead Counsellor for a GP practice; more than two years working with a specialised bereavement service; and a year in an organisation offering low-cost counselling to the local community.

I am a registered member of the BACP – the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy - and work according to their ethical framework.

I am a member of ACTO – the Association for Counselling & Therapy Online – and have completed specialised training enabling me to offer you a safe, ethical and professional standard of online and telephone counselling.

I am registered with the ICO - Information Commissioner's Office - and am fully insured.
