About me and my therapy practice

I'm Claire, currently offering my counselling sessions face to face, virtually, or over the phone; whatever you’re most comfortable with. I talk to a wide range of people - all adults, all feeling they could benefit from someone's support for whatever reason that may be. It's never silly, or too trivial: it's bothering you, and that's good enough reason to get in touch.

It could be that you're feeling especially anxious and maybe unable to sleep well at night. Or maybe you're frustrated or angry about certain situations (or people) in your life. Maybe you're uncertain as to where you're going, or maybe you have lost someone, or something, and are not sure how to 'grieve'.

I'm essentially quite 'conversational' in my counselling style, working flexibly as appropriate, but always with the end goal of helping you with what life has thrown at you: understanding it and possibly better managing it.

Practice description

Once you've found the time or plucked up the courage needed to take that first step, I'll always suggest that we have a (free) initial phone conversation so I can find out why you feel you need some support and you can find out more about me.  If we feel reasonably happy with each other, we'll discuss the best way to move forward: meeting face to face in Hereford, talking on the phone or talking virtually.  (I can do home or work visits as necessary if that’s your preference). 

We're living in difficult times at the moment and many of the clients I see or talk to report feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, a lack of self confidence, low self esteem. Talk of feeling overwhelmed and of having panic attacks appears increasingly normal. It's tough out there and having spent 25 years in a busy, London-based commercial environment  I know how it can feel. Outside work life has to go on ... and that may not be easy either. 

I offer a non judgemental space where you can talk honestly and openly about anything that is bothering you. It could be because of something that has happened recently, or way back in the past: it really doesn't matter. and I won't judge you.

Over the course of anything from just one or two sessions to twenty plus, working  together we will seek ways of reaching a point where you have the confidence to continue on your own

We will work together so that you'll have a better understanding of the things that make you angry or anxious, maybe you'll feel more able to talk openly with your parents/ partner/ colleagues, maybe you'll have that lightbulb moment which helps things make sense.

I will be alongside you every step of the way, not judging you, and not budging until you want me too. Everything is kept confidential (within certain limits). I also practice strictly ethically, in adherence with BACP guidelines and am underpinned by insurance and supervision.

Take that final step and text or call me, I really look forward to hearing from you.
