About Me

Hi, my name’s Clare and I’m a professionally qualified Counsellor and Coach, specialising in Stress and Anxiety.

I decided to become a Counsellor and Coach after experiencing the life-changing benefits of counselling and coaching for myself.  For me, it wasn’t enough to explore my problems with a Counsellor or plan for the future with a Coach.  This either-or approach just didn’t work for me. I needed a space where I could do both.  And, it turns out, so do many other people.  This is how the idea for Life on Your Terms Counselling and Coaching was born.

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching.  I’m a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association of Integrative Coach-Therapist Professionals (AICTP).

I’m an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist, providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries.  I also support university students with mental health issues.

I’ve worked in the counselling and coaching arena for many years. Prior to setting up my own practice, I managed counselling charities. And I’ve provided work-based coaching within organisations across a variety of sectors. 

I’ve also worked as a Counsellor in a voluntary capacity, including helping parents to cope with the multiple challenges of parenting. I previously worked as a Diplomat in the British Foreign Office for a number of years.

Please contact me today to see how I can help you to live Life on Your Terms.
