About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Claire,
I'm a person centred counsellor, which means that I work in a non directive, client centred way. If you decide to work with me, we will use the safe confines of the therapeutic relationship to explore any issues and difficulties that you may be experiencing. This can be an emotional process but ultimately, helps to untangle confusing feelings, can help you to reach acceptance and empower you to move forward.
Sometimes in life we may experience difficulties, issues or events that cause us distress, confusion and a whole range of feelings that we do not feel comfortable with. By making the decision to engage with counselling, you are taking a step towards helping yourself to understand your feelings, maybe reach a level of acceptance with some of them and ultimately, become more self aware as a result.
I do my face to face work from some lovely rooms in the centre of Manchester.
I also have specific training in working online, via Zoom, Skype or by telephone call, and I am very experienced working in this method of therapy delivery. Working in this way means that you can access counselling from your own home or from your preferred location, whilst I can be flexible with appointment times and can offer evening and weekend appointments.
I work with a wide range of issues so please contact me if you feel we could work together. I have specific experience in working with individuals who experience gender variance and their families, bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties, sexual assault, depression and anxiety, infertility and miscarriage.
