Claire is a trauma-informed practitioner, a Psychosexual and Relationship Psychotherapist, a Human Givens Therapist and an airline cabin crew counsellor who also provides emotional support for passengers with a fear of flying. Claire is a qualified Loss and Bereavement Counsellor and holds Advanced training in Couples and Relationship Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy- understanding and deepening relationships drawing from attachment theory. Claire’s experience extends to supporting veterans with complex trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder/Response and works with front-line emergency service responders. Claire enjoys interacting with people of all ages, diverse social backgrounds and sexual orientation, offering a safe non-judgmental and confidential space to talk.

Claire acts as a compassionate guide for individuals and couples, to understand maladaptive patterns of behaviour that are keeping them stuck, to redefine relationship goals and offers psychological/ sexual education to overcome sexual difficulties inc. sexual trauma, resulting in strengthening relationships, improved communication and sexual fulfilment, and building new pathways to sex and intimacy.

Claire’s approach is tailored to individual needs. She offers mid-longer-term therapy, employing an integrative psychodynamic approach when deeper insight is required to uncover conscious and subconscious blocks to sexual pleasure and desire, inc. pain, shame and past trauma experiences. Simultaneously, her training at Human Givens allows her to provide short-term, solution-focused therapy, often resolving difficulties in as few sessions as possible- including the Trauma Rewind technique, understanding and managing anxiety and depression, menopause and life transitions, workplace stress, exploring unmet emotional and physical needs, cognitive reframing, rebuilding self-esteem & confidence, skills and strategies and supporting neurodiverse clients with ADHD.

Clients seeking a holistic approach will find solace with Claire, who welcomes spiritually minded individuals. Optional interventions such as breath-work, CBT, relaxation meditation, guided sexual imagery, and philosophy serve to soothe troubled hearts and minds.

Claire spends her free time practicing yoga Nidra and attending retreats.
