Claire is a great therapist and you can tell she's a great person behind the screen too. Always very kind and replies quickly. During our live chats she always makes sure that everything we do or talk about is something I am comfortable with but also tries to push me out of my comfort zone in order to make sure I am leading the most healthy and happy life I can.

Claire was really helpful for me. Her ability to get to know about who I was and my relationships with work and friends helped me navigate some things I was struggling with understanding. She gave me some helpful resources in between sessions to assist our one on one sessions. Also very prompt in replying to questions via message. Very down to earth and kind manner. Highly recommend!

Claire has been fantastic in the short time I've been working with her.
She's taken on board what I've said and what my needs are understanding that not one type of therapy fits all which is what I like about Claire the most.
She replies to all my journal entries individually and answers all my queries and gives me questions to think about, which is helping me understand my wants and needs better.
Feel I have known Claire forever, she's easy to talk to and I don't feel ashamed or embarrassed about any topic I mention and she doesn't judge or make me feel stupid.
Overall Claire has been great and I look forward to continuing to work with her to develop and grow my understanding of myself so I can deal with stress and general day to day life better.
