About Me

Hello, my name is Claire and thank you for taking the time to find out a little 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 difficult feelings or issues you may be struggling with and explore ways to manage this and move on.

 

I am a qualified and registered therapeutic counsellor and my training is in humanistic therapy which holds at its heart the power we all have to heal ourselves given the right conditions.  I work in an integrative style, which means that I also use other modalities and resources to meet your individual needs. 

My experience has included work in a variety of settings including a GPs surgery, a girls’ secondary school and working for HeadsTogether who provide free and confidential counselling to young people aged 11-24.  I am currently working for a charity providing counselling services to families whose children face cancer and other life-threatening conditions and at my private practice in central Dorking, Surrey.

 

I am a fully qualified and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.

 

I am fully insured, am on the DBS Update service, have ongoing clinical supervision and regularly attend courses and further training to enhance my learning and development.  Recent training includes:

  • Attachment Theory

  • Working with Bereavement and Complex Grief

  • Counselling ADHD

  • Suicide and Self Harm – Working Safely and Ethically with Clients at Risk

  • Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling

  • Relational Depth

  • Safeguarding Young People

  • Supporting Families through Pregnancy Loss and the Death of a Baby

  • Uncertainty – An Existential Perspective

  • Introduction to Nature Therapy
