About me and my therapy practice

 Claire Bennett - Counsellor/Relationship Therapist and Supervisor 

Are you thinking about getting some support for some problems you may be having? You might be nervous about picking up the phone to make that first step. You may be thinking that what you have to talk about is too big or even too small!Or that you don’t really know what is wrong but you know you don’t feel “right”. You may be struggling with a relationship or with stress, trauma,anxiety or depression or other issues. You may feel you are weak because you are thinking about getting counselling.

These are all common reactions and I understand that it’s a big first step.

I am here to answer any queries you may have and, if you choose, to set up an initial meeting so we can talk things through and establish your needs.

I work from a comfortable therapy room at home about 1 mile away from the centre of Weston-Super- Mare.

Any previous clients are very welcome back to continue their work.

I am situated about half a mile away from the train station and there is ample parking outside.

So, if you are looking for a very experienced counsellor in Weston-super- Mare give me a call on 07742543190 anytime.

About me and my therapy practice

Supervision

I am a fully qualified supervisor working with supervisees from a wide range of settings and client groups. I supervise qualified and trainee counsellors and work with them at their own professional development stages.

I have supervised people in the helping professions for many years- mentoring counselling students and help line trainees in their work with clients and callers.

The work we are in is often stressful and I believe that a good supervisory relationship is crucial in the work that we do, not only for our clients but as part of looking after ourselves too.

I believe that supervision is about offering the following:

  • Providing a regular safe place for the supervisees to reflect upon the content and process of their client work
  • To help supervisees develop their skills – to be the best they can for their clients
  • To be validated and supported as a person and in their work
  • To help offload unnecesary difficulties, problems and projections that block their work
  • To have space to explore and express and personal distress, restimulation, transference and countertransference that may arise from their clinical work
  • To help supervisees plan their personal and professional resources effectively
  • To work within the BACP ethical Framework

Please give me a call to discuss you or your organisations need.

Come for a free initial meeting to see if I can support you in your work.

Call 01934 643740 or 07742543190 or email me at therapy@clairebennett.co.uk

Current cost for supervision is from £50 per hour. BACP guidelines are that a minimum of 1 and a half hours per month.

Group supervision from £60 an hour.

Current BACP guidelines are that trainee counsellors need to have supervision fortnightly.To encourage this practice I can offer sessions at £40 per hour.
