About me and my therapy practice
My client groups range from university students to mature adults, across diverse cultures. I believe culture matters and at the same time everyone's situation is unique. I am committed to provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your concerns and together we will find a way moving towards positive changes.
I have been seeing private clients since completing my MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent’s University London, in 2015. My special interest is in working with clients who find it difficult to cope with work stress or peer pressure. Many people constantly compare themselves to others, for example on social media or mentally, feeling they are not good enough…whilst others 'seem' to have everything. Cultivating self-value and self-compassion can lead towards a more fulfilling life.
I also have extensive experience in working with anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I have supported many clients (including teachers and NHS staff during the COVID-19 pandemic) in finding a better way to cope with their worries, fears, shame, guilt or feeling burnt out ... by listening to these intense feelings, we learn to take care and nurture ourselves.
Moreover, I am trained as a bereavement counsellor, supporting clients to go through loss, crisis as well as transitional life stages. Losing someone dear to us can unsettle and influence our lives on many levels. Seeking help during this time can help you find new meanings and directions in life.
For women who have been through miscarriages, IVF, or infertility issues, you might consider support from counselling to deal with intense stress, difficult decisions or tension in relationships.
I welcome you to contact me for a free initial meeting to discuss your needs. Please refer to my website for more details. https://www.clairechien.com
