I understand how life can sometimes become overwhelming and that finding the space to understand and work through what is going on can be difficult. Work, life events, changing circumstances can all create emotional upheaval and stress.  At Claire West Counselling, I aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental environment in which you can explore your feelings. As a qualified Integrative Counsellor with additional creative arts training I have a broad range of knowledge to draw on to help you navigate your situation. You can choose to work creatively or simply talk.

As a former teacher I am well aware of the stresses and pressures involved in working in education. I offer one-off and short-term sessions at the end of term where you can process the past term or academic year, replenish your reserves and be ready to make the most of the holiday. I also offer creative group sessions termly to connect and create with others. By connecting with others, being more aware of the present moment and learning something new you will have the opportunity to meet three of the NHS's '5 Steps to mental Wellbeing'.
