A very warm welcome, my name is Clare-Marie. I want to start by saying it is perfectly natural to feel anxious about taking that first step in seeking counselling. To open up about your difficulties takes a lot of courage, so please rest assured I will do all I can to make you feel at ease by offering you a safe place to talk over your worries. In the counselling session I will work warmly and sensitively to support you in moving forward with your life.
My approach is caring, full of empathy and about building a trusting relationship so you feel listened to. I will show no judgement to issues you seek support for as I want you to feel fully heard. You don't have to be in crisis to have therapy as I can assist you to make positive changes in your life.
Some of the many issues that I can support you with are anxiety, depression, feeling sad, bereavement, social anxiety, low self-esteem/confidence, family issues, relationship problems, trauma, phobias, feeling stuck, stress, OCD, bullying, exam worry, job stresses, etc.
I am an accredited member of the International Society of Psycotherapy and Counselling.
I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples so if you have any questions please do reach out and I will answer your queries. As well as working in the UK, I also work abroad through online video
