About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Claire and thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit more about me and what I have to offer.
If you’re reading this, I imagine life has got difficult, that you’re possibly feeling overwhelmed and not able to find a way forward. My aim in therapy is to offer you a safe space where you can look at what’s going on for you, explore what you want and find ways to manage this and move on.
I am a qualified and registered therapeutic counsellor and I work in an integrative style, which means that I use a number of modalities and resources to meet your needs. I look at you as a whole person, considering your mental, physical and emotional health and my aim is to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship in which you feel empowered to find acceptance and supported to make the changes you want.
You may be feeling a bit sceptical about counselling and what it can do to help but in looking for a counsellor, you have started a positive process in which you can make changes to improve your life, whatever it has thrown at you, and I would feel privileged to work with alongside you in this.
I currently work for a charity providing counselling services to families whose children face cancer and other life-threatening conditions, for Heads Together, a young person's counselling service in Surrey and I also run a private practice in Dorking, Surrey.
My practice is flexible in that I offer short term, time-limited or long term open-ended counselling - depending on what is right for you.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and I work either online via Zoom or face to face, in Dorking, Surrey.
