Counsellor, MSc, MBACP Accred
Well done for taking the first step to accessing support and alleviating some of the distress you are feeling. This is very often the hardest step and almost always the most daunting one but I hope that reading my profile encourages you to take the next step and begin your therapeutic journey. I have over 14 years experience in helping adults and young people to overcome anxiety, build self- esteem and confidence, fight depression and low mood and achieve healthy relationships. I specialise in working with people who experience intense or overwhelming emotions that can act as an obstacle to them living the life they want to live.
Waitlist for new clients
Claire louise Parker
I know from personal experience that counselling can feel like a daunting prospect yet it is also a unique opportunity to focus on what’s important for you. Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, angry or completely lost, please know there is help and you can find a way to ease the pain of what you are experiencing. I aim to offer you a safe non-judgemental atmosphere to explore your difficulties. Where you can begin to understand how your past experiences have led to behaviour patterns and beliefs that continue to hold you back or cause you distress. Together, we can find a way to alleviate the pain and move forward.
Psychotherapist, MSc, MUKCP
I value individual differences, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationship. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that i am not a fixer and i don't have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two. I know that I am ok to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk into a dark place. My aim as a therapist is to create a space where you can explore your difficulties, develop an understanding of where and how these difficulties arise to enable you to find ways to make changes.
Thank you for taking the time to explore my profile and considering my services. Embarking on the journey of therapy demands a unique kind of courage. As a dedicated counselor, my commitment to this transformative process is rooted in personal introspection and a wealth of experience guiding both young individuals and adults towards healing. I firmly uphold the principle that each person deserves a safe, judgment-free space to delve into their thoughts and emotions—a space free from apprehension about criticism or bias. At the heart of my approach lies person-centered counseling, a method that I've honed through years of practice.
Taking the first step towards counselling can be daunting, but my approach will be compassionate, friendly and supportive. We will work together to identify and resolve your issues in a safe and confidential environment, at a pace that is right for you. Through therapy I can help with a range of issues from anxiety to panic disorder, depression to anger management. As a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I will always work with you ethically and confidentially. So, if you are looking for a therapist in the Walsall or Wolverhampton (Willenhall) areas in the West Midlands, please get in touch.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
