I work from a relaxing cabin in my garden. To get to the cabin there are five steps plus one to get into the cabin. This makes it unsuitable for some to access as an alternative I can offer home visits. I currently have no toilet facilities available.
I am available monday, tuesday, wednesdays and friday daytimes with some evening availability.
About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I’m Clare. If you’ve made it this far I’d imagine something is upsetting you enough to reach out for support. I’m here to listen and together we can work through your thoughts and feelings. Offering a non judgmental, empathetic, warm and friendly approach to aid you in clarity of thoughts and feelings.
I’m a qualified counsellor offering a counselling service for those 18 and above using an integrative approach. This means that I am trained in different approaches and theories that we can use in our sessions, a little bit like a tool box.
Sessions can be face to face in my relaxing garden cabin in Melbourne, on-line video calls or on the phone.
I have a keen interest in trauma (experienced as adults and in childhood). I offer the rewind technique as well as traditional approaches, both of which are highly successful.
Working with complex grief, anxiety and existential crisis (who am I and why am I here?) being areas of interest but are not limited to who I work with. I believe it's the therapeutic relationship that we create that makes the difference. I also believe that you know what's best for you, it's just that sometimes we get lost in the day to day of life and lose sight of who we are and what makes us happy.
I feel that understanding ourselves is the key.
Here to help because I care.
My first session
I offer a free 15 minute introductory session for clients via the telephone or video call for you to get to know me a little and ask any questions that you might have.
I ask for a minimum or 8 weeks commitment to sessions as this should enable you to see some therapeutic change.
In our first session we will look at a shared agreement so that you know what to expect from me and how I work in more detail.
