CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: I am now open to new referrals for face-to-face and online therapy.
I offer a warm and professional therapy service to adults over the age of 18 suffering with anxiety or mood difficulties. I have a specialism in trauma, particularly those who have suffered from sexual trauma.
I am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT); Mindfulness; Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills training. I have over 12 years experience in the NHS (in a sexual assault service at Kings College Hospital London and in an IAPT service in Islington) and have been in independent practice for five years.
My therapy room is in central Taunton, Somerset. I am available for sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am until 2pm. I can also provide therapy online using Zoom. I see self-funding clients and am registered with: Aviva; BUPA; Cigna; AXA-PPP; WPA and Geo-Blue.
Professional Accreditation and Regulatory Bodies
I am regulated by the Health & Care Professionals Council (HCPC). I am an accredited CBT practitioner with the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and an EMDR-Europe Accredited Practitioner. I am also Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
"I have found the EMDR sessions life changing. I was really stuck on a traumatic event from my past but with Claire’s support and guidance we have worked through this. I am far more resilient, I am managing my own anxieties and no longer fear my past experiences."
