Clair RayGestalt counsellor
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I have been involved in counselling and mental health within: universities, inner city charities, corporate organisations and women's health.
I work with clients who are seeking more out of life and would like to experience increased contentment, confidence, energy, self acceptance joy and improved relationships.
I offer a warm approach backed with clinical experience. This allows us to work together in the difficult, painful or avoided and towards improved hope and desired outcomes.
I use a Gestalt framework which encourages exploring your unique self, personal relationships, life circumstances, belief's and behaviour's. Together we can notice patterns emerging and the associated feelings. We can work at your pace and where you are able pay attention to the connection between the mind and body. I aim to work in the present with acknowledgment of the past to stimulate self awareness that could help you identify the root causes of your concerns and discover new possibilities and options for your life.
During this process I endeavour to offer support, empathy, gentle challenge, containment and non judgement. This is especially important when you may be wanting to tackle difficulties that may have become frustrating, upsetting, overwhelming or shame inducing.
From my own experience I understand it may be difficult to make this first step. It is equally important to find the most suitable therapist for you. I warmly encourage you to get in touch. I offer a free 15 minute online session or telephone call, please feel free to contact me via email to request this service.
