Hello, my name is Claire.
I'm a qualified integrative counsellor and I work predominantly with a relational, person-centred approach. I meet clients with compassion and understanding, providing a safe and confidential space to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviours. My practice is inclusive, respectful and trauma informed. I am an LGBTQ+ allied therapist.
Alongside my private practice, I also work in the voluntary sector, counselling individuals who have experienced domestic abuse and sexual violence. My interest in women's issues comes from working in this area for over fifteen years.
I work on a one-to-one basis with adults in the Durham area. I also provide remote counselling, via telephone and on-line, and have completed additional training to allow me to do so ethically.
I am registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I adhere to their standards of good practice and Ethical Framework. I hold professional insurance, a clear DBS and I am registered under the Data Protection Act (1998) .
