When not in private practice I work part time as a trauma counsellor - predominately with young girls and women who have experienced sexual violence , rape and childhood abuse .
Everyone is an individual who experiences life and the issues it throws, in very different ways. No 'one' sure way fits all - that is my Moto. We are individuals. Whatever anyone is feeling they shouldn't believe that they can "just cope" because everyone else seems to be doing ok. Its all relative! Depression/anxiety/stress/ lack of self worth and esteem are all problems in todays society and many suffer in silence. You don't need to. Often by talking and getting your problems out in the open is the first step to healing. Their voice to be heard and feelings to be listened to. Trust and the therapeutic relationship are key.

Hi I’m Clare, mother of two, married for over 20 years and live in England. We all have mental health. But not all of us live with good mental health. At times through experience or trauma we may need support to create or re-establish good mental health. As a person centred counsellor, I believe everyone deserves to live to their full potential. I have experience working with trauma, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, shame, attachment issues and abuse . I have worked for charities, the NHS, schools and the private sector.

I have a vast amount of experience of working with people who have anxiety, depression, abuse .
At times do you feel overwhelmed by what life throws at you? Is stress making you unable to make decisions? Are you a person who rebukes themselves for making a wrong decision? Are you your own worst critic? Have you noticed that patterns in life are continually repeating themselves? By becoming aware of these cycles, you will be able to prepare yourself with strategies that can break the cycle of repetition that can lead you to becoming empowered in life, taking away the fear of being embarrassed or shamed. I can help you look at making changes and find a way that is customised to support and establish a way forward for.

I try to make therapy as available to as many people as I possible can. The cost of therapy can be quite steep so I keep my prices as low as I can so that more can access it. Therapy is about getting to where you want to be by making your own unique road map, so that you can use it again in the future if need be. I'm an Addiction Psychologist by trade, with 18 years of private practise behind me, but a lot of my work is helping many different age groups with problems such as OCD and PTSD etc. Please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat to see if i can be any help to you.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
