About me and my therapy practice
Clare Dackombe - Dip. Couns. MBACP
I am a fully insured BACP registered counsellor, I offer counselling and therapy to adults.
Imagine if you had someone alongside you to help you notice what helps and what hinders you? If you are feeling powerless, suffering, feeling anxious, depressed, or wishing for personal change and improvements in your relationships, I can help.
Before you read about me, I first want to say that I hope you find the help you are seeking and that you find the right support to help ease any pain that you might be feeling.
I can help you with your wish for personal change, perhaps you are struggling to cope, feeling powerless, suffering, or feeling desperate. Below are listed some specific issues that I can help with. (Don't be afraid to get in touch).
Covid-19 related anxiety
life or work stress
general life dissatisfaction
How counselling can help
I offer a non-judgmental space where I will listen to you empathically. My approach is humanistic and this means that I believe in our own ability to grow and change and that all aspects of ourselves matter if we are to achieve the change that we want. If you want to know a little bit about my theoretical background it is integrative; a blend of Person-Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. I will help identify your goals with you and then walk alongside you with compassion and we can notice together what is helpful to you throughout your journey. This might include recognising unhelpful patterns that keep you from your goals and clearly expressing your needs. If you would like to explore problems creatively I can offer ways that we can achieve this even working online.
