About me and my therapy practice

I offer general counselling for problems such as anxiety, panic, depression or anger.  I also work with couples experiencing relationship issues. I have specialist coaching training to support people in recovery from drug, alcohol and gambling addictions and also offer tailored treatment for people with different eating disorders whether anorexia, bulimia, binge eating or obesity. I work with individuals, couples and groups.  

I offer a professional and confidential service and look forward to meeting you if you decide to contact me.   If you would like a free introductory session of 20-30 mins by phone or in person, please contact me and we can arrange this.

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.
