Believe - Heal - Grow
Hi, I’m Sian-Claire, a qualified Person-centred Counsellor who can provide online and telephone Counselling at a pace and in a place you feel comfortable with. I also offer walking therapy where we can walk side-by-side and utilise the serenity and inspiration of nature.
It is easy to feel like the real you isn't seen, to compare our self, experiences and feelings to others and lose sight of what WE feel, what WE want and who WE are in order to merely fit in. Your experiences are so very real - nobody has lived your life and walked your path! Therefore, in the way that I work, I will listen without judgement, accept your experiences as you have experienced them and provide a space in which you can share your truth and be heard.
I won't tell you what to do but I can draw on a number of tools and approaches to support you with your goals.
When your experiences and feelings are hard to express in words, I am able to draw on other therapeutic approaches if required such as The Rewind Technique for processing Trauma, Grounding techniques for anxiety and panic, EFT and TFT tapping , Creative methods and Mindfulness to ensure that the therapeutic process meets your needs.
WHAT I OFFER

ONLINE AND TELEPHONE COUNSELLING
Counselling in your own space,
at your own pace
For many, the journey to the counselling room can cause anxiety and can stop many accessing support when they need it.
I want everybody to feel comfortable gaining support and so I offer counselling via the online platform Zoom and by telephone, so you can access quality therapy from the safety of your own chosen private space.

“The journey of a thousand miles
begins with a single step” -Lao Tzu
Good therapy can go beyond the walls of a therapy room. The pace and speed of walking aligns with my view of therapy - - the client sets the pace.
In walking therapy we can walk alongside each other in an outdoor space which enables nature to be brought into therapy to lend calm, inspire and support self-growth

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED COUNSELLING?
HOW ARE YOUR SESSIONS STRUCTURED?
Do you need space where you can talk through all the thoughts in your head, without judgement or advice?
Do you have a problem you want to work through?
Do you need somewhere to be seen and heard?
Do you want to learn skills which can help you with self-care?
Then counselling can help!
Counselling is for everybody - you dont need a diagnosis or label
Each session is your own - you bring what you want to talk about. I will listen, reflect your words back to you, challenge with another perspective and offer tools and strategies that might be useful to you - you can choose what you take and what you ignore
I will always give you a chance to reflect at the end of the session what was useful and what could be more useful for you.
You will always leave a session feeling grounded, safe and ready to re-enter your reality.
CAN I BOOK A GETTING-TO-KNOW YOU SESSION?
I offer a free 30 minute session, currently conducted by Zoom where you can ask any questions and we can talk about what brings you to counselling to see if I am the right counsellor for you.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
I charge £40.00 for a 50 minute session (telephone, Zoom or walking therapy).
Fees are payable by Bank transfer on the day of session, or before
More coming soon...
