A little bit about me…
I achieved a BA (Hons) degree in Criminology and Sociology before training to be a person-centred counsellor, attaining my PG (Dip) in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2016.
I have a highly nurturing, compassionate approach and enjoy working with people from diverse backgrounds, with a particular interest in supporting children and young adults. By creating a safe, confidential space and offering core conditions including empathy I believe I am able to support my clients to explore their feelings and emotions, with the aim of helping them to develop a richer understanding of their experiences and supporting them to flourish.
I am delighted to be joining the Team of BACP Registered therapists at The Claire Approach™ and look forward to connecting with our clients.
I have supported clients with a range of issues including:
Anxiety / social anxiety
Bereavement / Loss
Loss of direction
Family / difficult relationships
“I share the same visions as Claire and those of her Team. This is a very exciting opportunity for me!
Claire has created a unique and diverse Practice and The Claire Approach™ feels authentically, my place to be.
On her website, as she is as a person, Claire is 100% authentic, caring and compassionate.
I am delighted to work with people of all ages and to be a part of Claire’s mission and vision – The Claire Approach™.”
Through a non-judgemental, person-centred approach, I offer a confidential space to explore challenges and difficult times when emotions and feelings become too heavy to carry alone.
My understanding of individuality and diversity means that my sessions are adapted to meet your needs and I draw on various therapeutic approaches so you are able to safely share personal distresses.
My aim is to view presenting issues from your frame of reference, looking at the world through your eyes. Reviewing our therapy sessions regularly offers the opportunity for us to collaboratively look at our therapeutic relationship and adapt accordingly to ensure you can embrace your therapeutic journey, together.
Trusting relationships heal and empower!
With warmth & kindness, Holly.
I pledge to offer unconditional kindness, compassion, and reassurance in a comfortable, safe environment with respect for every single client. I hope to reach those who seek support for their struggles and to be alongside them in a individual way.
