Easy to communicate with, supportive, inquisitive.

Really helped me get to the root of the issue which I had no idea about. Since then Claire has been supportive as I work to keep improving myself. I went into therapy with low hopes but found in Claire the help to change things that I’ve been struggling with for 10+ years.

I’ve had the pleasure of having Claire as my therapist for 6 months, and it’s safe to say she is incredible. She’s helped me through many issues and adjusted the therapy accordingly each week to what challenges I was having that week and in between sessions she was always there to help when I needed it. She’s relatable, caring, professional and makes you feel safe and relaxed that you can share anything. Having tried therapy many years ago and it not being the most successful attempt I was in need to try again and I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish everything that I have without her this time, to the point I looked forward to going to therapy every week because I knew I could rely on her help and support. I could not more highly recommend her as she has changed my life and given me so many tools that I will continue using after therapy. Thank you so much Claire.

Claire has been nothing but absolutely wonderful therapist!

She is the epitome of professional, kind and caring therapist. Always on time for sessions, takes the process very seriously and always has your best interest at heart. This was my first therapy experience and I could not have started this journey with a better person.

You will be in great hands if you choose Claire to be your partner in therapy :)

When I have my therapy session with Claire I feel instantly relaxed and calm. It’s Like I’m instantly in a chilled, safe place. I am around 10 weeks into my therapy and I already feel like I have learnt so much and gained a completely different perspective of how my thoughts work, and realised that although sometimes the way I think isn’t the best way, I’m
Not the only one that does it and there is ways to change this and light at the end of the tunnel! I look forward to my sessions every week with Claire and I’m looking forward to continuing my journey

Truly great and needed help. Thankful

Written on Sep 29, 2022 after therapy with Claire for 5 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Working with Claire has been a great experience for me. She understood my goals and helped me to achieve them using a range of approaches and by looking at the wider context of my personality and life history. I think Claire's use of this range of theories and practical tasks is particularly helpful if you don't know where to start with therapy as the variety gives you the opportunity to see what combination feels most helpful for you. Claire was encouraging and made me feel at ease; I am grateful for our time working together.

Highly recommended

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 is so wonderful! Her advice is insightful and helpful, and she’s thoughtful and an incredible listener. Generally wonderful person and therapist! Couldn’t recommend her more

Written on May 15, 2022 after therapy with Claire for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

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.
