What is Counselling?

Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk to a professional therapist to help you understand yourself and your situation. This might involve reflecting on your life experiences and your responses to new ones. The counsellor will also help you to identify what changes in life style could reduce any distress you feel, and to support you as you consider how to do this.

Depending on what you are able to share, the counsellor works with you to explore how you can progress towards living in a way that is more satisfactory and resourceful for you. Although the counselling offered is primarily non-directive and non-advisory, in some situations you may want more positive guidance from specific information and advice. The counsellor will suggest how this might be obtained.

How Does Counselling Work in Practice?

Counselling takes place in a private setting so that you can feel free to share your concerns in confidence. In the initial session, you will be able to talk to the counsellor to clarify the areas that you want to cover together. The counsellor will suggest the number of times you might need to meet to achieve your objectives. Each session is 55 minutes, normally at the same time each week. Depending on how things work out, you may wish to take short breaks in the process to work on issues that have emerged for you, returning later when you are ready to do more work.

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.
