What previous clients have said.

If you are thinking of making a change and feel that you are ready to take the next step, you will not be disappointed. Here are some comments from some previous clients.


“Claire was my therapist when I was 15 years old. I had been through  several therapists before I met Claire and just never clicked with anyone, I started to think that I was just supposed to be like this and would never get better and my Mum was recommended Claire by someone that she goes to a support group with and she was just different. I was really nervous starting but Claire made me comfortable straight away. She is warm, caring, funny and the reason why I’m still here today. I’m just about to finish Uni and I did it with all the skills I learned with Claire. I 100% recommend

A Previous Client with Anorexia Nervosa


“I  worked with Claire after a relationship breakdown. I had never really had any problems with my mental health before and was worried that my problems were ‘trivial’ as I know other people have things worse but Claire helped me to come to terms with my break up and work through my low mood and anxiety felt so much better. I hadn’t realised how much I needed that at that time”.

A Previous Client with Depression & Anxietty


“I started to work with Claire when I had pure meltdown in work. I started to have panic attacks and really horrible intrusive thoughts. Claire supported me though and I was able to manage my anxiety a lot more. I haven’t had a panic attack since!”
