About me and my therapy practice

My name is Claire and I am an experienced online counsellor with flexible and immediate availability.  My aim is to provide you with a safe and confidential space so that we can explore deeply and help you facilitate change.  I am passionate about helping people through counselling and I have seen the positive change that happens as a result many times. 

Through the current pandemic I have helped many people over the last year deal with the frustrations, difficulties and anxieties that such a unique situation can bring. 

I'm a humanistic/ person centred counsellor, which means that I work in a non directive, client centred way.  We would use the safe and confidential space of 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.

It can be daunting to start counselling, I understand this from my own experience with counselling many years ago, and I offer a free no obligation 20 minute telephone call so you can ask em any questions that you need to and get a sense of how I will work with you.  

I 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.



Practice description

Currently my face to face work is on hold due to the restrictions with the pandemic. 

I have worked online for many years and now this is my preferred method of session delivery.  I can work via Zoom, Skype, Google meets, telephone call or if you have a different platform you would like to use then let me know and I will endeavor to accommodate that.

My first session

Before we book in for an initial session, I offer a free no obligation 20 minute telephone call where you can learn more about how I work, you can decide if you wish to work with me and we can discuss the initial session.

At the initial session I will go through my client contract with you so that we are both clear in our way of working, we will discuss regularity of sessions as well as how many sessions you will likely need to have.  

You can ask me any questions at any time we are in communication,  I want you to be clear on how we would work together.

I work with a wide range of issues or concerns and a diverse client group. I have extensive experience working with gender diversity and have helped many trans and non binary individuals.

I also have a lot of experience working with depression and low mood, work place stress, relationship issues, mid life issues, menopause, fertility and miscarriage, bereavement and loss.

My experience has been gained through working in an NHS service helping individuals through life limiting illnesses as well as bereavement and loss. I have also worked in a local community setting, EAP services, as well as my own private practice in central Manchester and across South Manchester.
