Are you experiencing challenges or changes in your life? Do you feel that you are out of resources and do not know what to do? You are one step closer to taking back control of your life!

I’m a friendly warm caring person who is able to make you feel at ease when talking through your concerns. I believe that it is important to listen and value you in a non judgemental way, allowing you to explore what’s going on for yourself and allowing you to get the best out of your own process in a confidential space.

I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and psychotherapists – BACP and I abide by their ethical framework. As an integrative counsellor my goal is to help you explore your life experiences and release the emotion that is causing you discomfort. While we cannot change the past or difficult situations, we can work together to understand and resolve challenges in your life.


Hi, my name is Claire King, and I am a qualified and registered integrative counsellor offering short-term and longer-term therapy for adults and adolescents.  I am a caring and empathic person and offer a friendly and non-judgemental space where we can look at how emotional and psychological difficulties can become problematic and have a negative impact on our everyday life while identifying where repetitive patterns of behaviour may underlie your presenting symptoms. I have 4 years’ experience working for the Samaritans, which led to the start of my counselling training in Psychodynamic and humanistic approaches.

Considering Coronavirus/Covid-19 and the implications that this pandemic can have on mental health, I am offering online and telephone support. Online and telephone support are a means of maintaining contact in a safe way and of providing treatment during periods of self-isolation.
