Hello I'm Clara and thank you for visiting my page. Talking to someone about issues you may be facing can often be difficult, so well done for making that first step. Searching for a counsellor can also prove difficult and it is important to find the right one for you. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between you and your counsellor. There are many approaches to counselling and as an Integrative Counsellor I work with several theoretical approaches such as Person Centred, Gestalt, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Transactional Analysis. I also offer creative ways of working.

All of us, at one time or another, are alone or sense that we are in real trouble. Perhaps we feel stuck, anxious, depressed, lost, or maybe unable to even define what's wrong. We sense that there must be more, but can't reach it. Our potential is often blocked as a result of unresolved issues or trauma that unconsciously influence our thoughts, behaviours, relationships and beliefs about what is possible. This work is a powerful journey towards self-awareness and self-acceptance : Unblock that which is preventing you from living a life of natural freedom, intimacy, empowerment and aliveness.

You may be suffering intolerable thoughts and feelings, and just want to stop feeling so awful. Sometimes we feel we have run out of ideas - what to do to help ourselves. Having someone, who is not connected to you gives you the safe space to say all the stuff we cannot say to even our nearest and dearest. That's why counselling can be an answer - a time when we can really explore what is happening and make meaning out of our life.

Things are not normal just now. We are living through a time of uncertainty and change. Homelife, workalike and our relationships are changing because of the uncertainty caused by the virus and on-going economic turmoil. Most us want certainty and predictability in our lives; we do not like change. When forced to change we feel stress, confusion, frustration, anger and even fear. Counselling is often thought of as a way of resolving mental health problems. It is, but it can also be so much more; counselling can be a like bootcamp for developing mental fitness and to help prevent poor mental health.

Are you one of the those people who feels "I should be able to sort myself out....I shouldn't need to ask for help....no-one will understand how I feel?" If this sounds familiar to you, then seeking help can be a really challenging and scary prospect. However, if you feel able to take a step towards finding out and resolving what's going on for you, then I may be able to help. It may be a crisis in your life such as bereavement, job loss, relationship or health issues, or something longer term such as anxiety, low self esteem, lack of confidence or childhood issues that you feel need resolution.

Periods of doubt or stress may leave you feeling confused, depressed, anxious or isolated.You may be worried about a present day situation or recognise that a past experience is still causing difficulties. You may be questioning your beliefs or feel that life could be more fulfilling. Even a change that some might deem as positive such as marriage, having a baby or retirement may be causing you difficulties. You may not even know why you feel counselling is needed...but simply know you would like something to change.

I started training to be a counsellor because I had previously been through some deeply painful times in my life and having both survived – and benefited - from that experience, I decided to dedicate myself to supporting others so they could go on the similar journey. After several years I decided to further my studies at a post-graduate level and trained to be a psychotherapist so I could work at a deeper level and this has been most helpful. I also found that I was being approached by couples who wanted help with their relationship so I decided to train in couples psychotherapy which has been incredibly useful.
