Some of the reasons to come to counselling include; Sex or Relationship Issues, Questioning or coming to terms with Sexuality, Work Issues, Bullying, both emotional or physical, Anxiety, Depression, dealing with loss and bereavement. I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist and registered member of the BACP.

Having a fulfilling sexual life is often what we aspire to, but anxiety, physical pain and relationship issues might make it difficult to achieve. I believe everyone has an innate ability to connect to others and to build healthy relationships. As a sex and relationship therapist, my aim is to help you find your inner resources to overcome the challenges you are coming with. Whether you need your relationship to achieve its full potential or to overcome a crisis, we will work together to identify the issues you are struggling with and support you in the areas where you feel change is needed.

I am a person-centred and existentialist counsellor specialising in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (including LGBTQIA+, kink, polyamory ).
Asking for help takes courage. Maybe you want to understand yourself and your life more deeply. Maybe you are exploring your gender, sexuality, and relationships, or are curious about all the things that make you the person you are. Maybe you feel like it is hard to exist in the world because of your identity, or are struggling to find your place. Counselling provides you with a radically accepting safe space to explore and become curious about how your beliefs, your identity, and your lived experience of the world have shaped you. Together, we will create a space where you can go deep into yourself and explore who you are.

I also work with issues around kink/BDSM, and non-traditional ( polyamory /non-monogamous) relationship styles.
I believe that therapy allows you to take a more active role in understanding and experiencing your emotions. When we are not aware of our emotions or ideas, it can mean we act out certain behaviours – or experience certain feelings - without knowing why. And while we might be able to tolerate this for some time – perhaps even for a long time - I believe there is a difference between surviving and living. Developing a closer – or less mysterious - relationship with ourselves can allow us to go beyond living life passively and begin to really experience it.

I have additional specialisms in: online LGBT counselling, working with people affected by HIV, and working with relationship diversity, including polyamory and ethical non-monogamy.
At various points in our lives, we all experience feelings, thoughts and events that we find challenging. You may be feeling anxious or depressed, finding it difficult to come to terms with something that has happened in the past, or worried about what the future will bring. Perhaps you feel stuck in a difficult situation, or caught between what seem like impossible choices. You may be seeking an opportunity to think about who you are, what is important to you, and the kind of life you want to lead.

I am experienced in working with issues to do with gender and sexuality, relationship diversity ( polyamory , non-monogamy etc) and provide an LGBTQ+ affirmative practice, but welcome clients from all backgrounds.
I am an integrative therapist, meaning I draw on multiple approaches and theories in my practice, but my way of working has been particularly shaped by relational psychotherapy and attachment theory. This means I believe that the relationships we experience in our early lives affect our later ways of relating to both ourselves and others. I believe that therapy is a fundamentally relational endeavour - not that people are broken and therefore need to be “fixed” - but rather that through working together we can come to new ways of relating, understanding and being.

My name is Claudia (she/her), and I work in a gentle manner that aims to make the counselling room into a welcoming space for exploring all feelings. I am genuinely interested in the broad range of human experience, and my ambition is to support clients as they process their story and feelings at a pace that is comfortable for them. If they find themselves stuck or confused, I use active, compassionate listening methods to help them onwards.
