About me and my therapy practice

I offer general counselling for problems such as anxiety, panic, depression or anger.  I have specialist training in working with couples and also with eating disorders.   I am a tutor for DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) and an advanced practitioner in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).

I offer a professional and confidential service and look forward to meeting you if you decide to contact me.

Previous clients have said they.....

"I can honestly say that working with Claire has changed my life. When I met Claire in 2013, I was struggling to deal with life and felt like an emotional wreck. Claire helped me to regain some perspective and made me feel heard for the first time in my life..... The practice of talking with her for just under an hour a week gave me my life back in ways I wouldn't have known I'd needed...... I cannot recommend Claire enough. She is compassionate, professional and easy to talk to." (S.S)

"Claire taught a psychotherapy class I took at City Lit earlier this year.(2019). Her therapeutic approach deeply resonated with me and equipped me with a 'toolkit' of skills and tactics to better understand and navigate an array of issues in my life. Claire has helped me to trust and listen to my inner wisdom and ultimately connect with my true self. Her compassion and empathy really made me feel listened to and heard. I highly recommend Claire to anyone seeking counselling." (N.P)

Outside of East and West Sussex I offer telephone and online counselling.
