"I started therapy with Clare during the pandemic when I found myself struggling due to work related issues. She helped me to realise that my anxieties were legitimate, I felt heard and no longer alone and stuck in my head. It made a huge difference to me and I made so many positive changes, which meant that I started to enjoy life again. Then I went through a relationship breakdown and felt like I 'd lost everything. Clare found space for me (to come back to counselling) and gave me the support I needed to get through this extremely difficult time. By the end, I had a short term plan to focus on and could think more positively again. She's always provided a non-judgmental and safe space for me to talk. I trust her a lot and I feel like she has really gotten to know me and understands me deeply. I can't thank her enough for being here when I need her and getting me through those tough times a stronger person. I really know so much more about who I am and my own needs now."
"A good supervisor is essential when you’re in private practice and I’m so grateful to have found Clare. Working with her is a big part of why I love my work as a therapist. Her wisdom and expertise have been invaluable to me. Her considered, clear response to any issue I may bring both reassures me and and helps me to feel confident in my work. I should add that her warmth and sense of humour make her a absolute delight to work with. I hope you are lucky enough to work with her too."

"Clare’s warm support and guidance helped me through a huge period of change in my life and I don’t know what I would have done without her. I was able to trust her instantly, and she completely transformed the way that I face challenges and adversity. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone seeking counseling."
"One of the things I’ve gained from my counselling with Clare is demonstrated in how well I’m looking after myself now. I’ve been reminded about the natural energy I have inside without needing anything else. At a recent event I didn’t have one moment of anxiety which usually happens in crowded spaces. Now if anxiety ever does pop up, I’m able to talk myself through it so nothing ever feels out of control. I can’t describe how much of a different response that is for me, I can actually listen to my compassionate voice now and feel safe. I think the compassionate voice is coming through more and more each day and being listened to and therefore I feel heard and am acting with integrity. I’m excited to keep doing the work in different areas because I feel that I can hold myself and reach out and ask for help when I need it. The amount of time I feel present in the moment, rather than being stuck in my head, has drastically changed and I couldn't be more grateful for that."
"Supervision with Clare is a truly nourishing experience. Clare provides a safe space to explore without judgement. I gain something each time I have a session and it continues to help me to grow as a counsellor and as a person."

"Having Clare as my supervisor has benefited my practice enormously. Her supportive, holding, down-to- earth presence allows a safe space to explore anything and everything. I always come away from a session feeling I have gained clarity and space."

Before I started having supervision with Clare, I had given up on the idea of being a Counsellor. I'd had an awful experience with a previous Supervisor which had significantly affected my confidence. Clare has helped me build up my confidence again to finally set up my private practice. She has helped me untangle some tricky ethical dilemmas, as well as help me meet the needs of my specific client group with honesty and openess. Clare's approach to supervision is collaborative, informative, and non-judgemental and has certainly helped me through the early stages of my counselling career.
