Claire Atkinson - Counsellor
I am a BACP Accredited and Registered Counsellor now offering counselling at Positive Heath Therapy Centre on a Tuesday and Thursday.
I work with adults for either short term or long term counselling and I can help with a wide range of psychological problems including depression, anxiety, stress, illness, trauma.
I have been working as a Counsellor for over 10 years, initially in Primary Health Care and for the last 7 years as part of an in-house Counselling and Wellbeing team providing counselling to Police Officers and staff.
I have experience of working with people of all ages and backgrounds who are experiencing a wide range of problems in their lives.
I believe counselling provides an opportunity for you to explore what is happening in your life in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way. I will work with you to look at whatever difficulties you are currently facing and the impact of this on your wellbeing. I aim to help you to gain a greater understanding of yourself, to develop your own coping mechanisms to help you to improve how you are feeling.
Some people wish to focus on a specific life event such as bereavement, diagnosis of an illness, or particular distress they are currently facing such as low mood/depression, work related stress, symptoms of anxiety etc. For others it may be a chance to explore why they feel like they do at this particular time in their life and to explore changes they have been considering.
If you would like to find out more about how I work and how I could help you then please contact me by phone or email and I will arrange a convenient time to talk with you on the phone. If you then wish to go ahead we can make an appointment for an initial assessment.
A session costs £45.00
