Hello. I am Claire and welcome to Claire Blackwell Counselling.

I know how difficult it can be to make the first step to seek counselling. Life can sometimes be difficult to navigate and you maybe experiencing thoughts and feelings that can be confusing, distressing and disorientating. So with that in mind I am truly thankful you have taken to time to stop by and look at my profile.

Taking the step to seek counselling can be daunting, but I aim to provide a safe, warm, non-judgemental space. Working in a collaborative way, together we will explore, unpick and talk about difficulties or issues you maybe experiencing.

I am passionate about the power of counselling. I know from my own experience of personal therapy how being truly heard and listened too in a supportive, safe and held way allowed me to gradually reframe and let go of the negative thoughts and stories that had limited me for such a long time and allowed me to uncover my inner strength and power.

I work in an integrative way, taking a whole view of you as a person, exploring your emotional, physical and mental health needs. I see you as a unique individual and draw on techniques from different theoretical approaches to explore the difficulties you maybe encountering. The approaches I use within my practice include Person Centred Approach, Compassion Focused Approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in addition to using creative therapeutic approaches and inner child work.

I have a special interest working with young people and adults. My experience includes working in high schools with 11-16 years old exploring difficulties including self esteem, relationships, attachment, social anxiety and low mood. In addition to working with young people I also have vast experience working with adults and supporting you to explore difficulties includes anxiety, low mood and depression, loss and bereavement and relationship difficulties.

The sessions I provide are 50-minutes and they can take place either face to face or online. I also offer telephone sessions and walk and talk therapy. We can work on a short term or long term basis and we will discuss the number of sessions you may need together and will keep them regularly reviewed.

If you would like to ask any questions please feel free to contact me on 07715 630990 – you can either call or if you prefer you can send me a message or WhatsApp message. Alternatively, you can email me on
