Hello, I am Claire.
Thank you for taking the time in looking up my website.
I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor in private practice. I work with a non-judgement and compassionate approach to support my clients who are experiencing issues that have impacted their lives, I aim to facilitate change and growth, and I believe this occurs as a result of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client.
My journey into counselling started after I lost my identical twin sister and Mum to breast cancer, I felt angry at the world; that no-one understood what I was going through, I struggled with people telling me " I know exactly how you feel" when all I wanted to do is scream "no you don't!".
I decided to undertake an evening college course in counselling; loved it! So, I took a deep breath and took the plunge to apply to the University of Nottingham to study counselling, I was accepted and three and a half years later in 2019 graduated with a first class Bachelors of Arts with Honours degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice. It hasn't been an easy journey, all the blood, sweat and tears has been worth it to now be able to be qualified in offering my services to clients.
