Claire is an excellent therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I made it clear from the start that I really wanted to be challenged and to receive practical/pragmatic support. Having had counselling previously, I knew I didn’t want someone to just be a listening ear, but I wanted to really learn more about myself. Claire used practical techniques to teach me theories about what was going on for me. She was also challenging and could see through my coping mechanisms in order to get to the root of issues. I appreciated this direct approach, but I can imagine that Claire is incredibly good at picking up on what people need, and so could take a more delicate approach if this is what someone needed or required. She was flexible and would allow extra time between sessions if more processing time was requested. Although on the more expensive side, I would say it is well worth paying a little more to invest in a therapist as skilled as Claire. I had 10 sessions altogether and I felt we covered such a wide range of things in that time. I will take the skills and the lessons she has taught me into my life. I also know that the door is always open if I need further support in the future.
After reading the reviews below I thought I’d book myself in. The reviews certainly live up to the level of service. Claire is an incredibly compassionate practitioner with great clinical initiative. I could not recommend her services enough.
I think Claire is one of the kindest people I know. Nothing is too much trouble. She is such a warm, open minded, non judgmental person. Also an extremely good listener. 💖
My wife and I were skeptical about couples therapy and had never tried this. It was the last chance saloon for both of us. We can say that Claire helped us to save our marriage. The tools and techniques provided were tremendously helpful as well as the supervised honest and candid exchanges that allow us to resolve many unspoken issues. Thank you Claire.
Claire has helped me and supported me to understand some of the loops I was re-living over and over, never seeming to find any answers or relief. She has helped me break the cycle and restore hope and optimism. She has shown me ways I can now help and maintain myself when faced with new difficulties. I highly recommend her approach and professionalism, the whole process has been a revelation.
