A little bit about me

Hello, I’m Claire. I’ve supported children, young people & families in the UK & overseas for over 15yrs in the charity & private sector in specialist assessment, trauma and attachment informed therapeutic services also supporting caregivers, professionals & systems.

I can offer a safe, non-judgmental space to help you explore via long or short-term counselling, depending on your needs. At the heart of it, my approach of working is relational and co-created with the therapeutic relationship as a key ingredient. Finding a counsellor that you feel safe and comfortable with is essential. I support the individuals own unique process to explore and create change with personal empowerment.

I offer an invitation to use creative expressive approaches, including use of movement, mark making, collage, writing, poetry, breath, sound and drama. These offer a gentle and playful way to explore, access and process feelings through symbol & metaphor, activate imagination, regulate the nervous system and for empowerment with freedom and possibility. This may open opportunities to discover vitality, to access inner resources moving with greater calm, confidence, growth and resilience through life’s challenges. Creative therapies can enable expression in a variety of ways, often without using words. A person is not required to have artistic ability to use or benefit from expressive arts therapy.

As a Therapeutic Counsellor and Coach, I offer 1:1, family & group sessions in the form of a right-brained integration approach incorporating mindfulness and relaxation techniques with strength building, resilience and compassion. I offer specialist therapeutic support for individuals & couples experiencing fertility issues, and from pregnancy to parenthood.

My own self-care includes dancing and movement, mindfulness practices, creative activities and enjoying being outdoors in nature. I invest in regular personal development including workshops, therapeutic groups, conferences and retreats.
