Clare Harland Integrative counsellor , SE1
I am a BACP-registered counsellor who supports adults to navigate uncertainties and upheavals in their lives, reflect on emotions, behaviours and relational patterns that may be causing them difficulty, and explore ways forward. I have experience of working with issues including bereavement and loss, stress, depression, low mood, relationship problems and life changes.
My training is integrative and I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches, particularly person-centred, psychodynamic and attachment-based therapies, and tailor my response to your individual needs. My priority is to create a safe, supportive environment where you feel accepted and listened to with warmth and respect, and where, together, we can unpack any thoughts and feelings that you may be struggling with. As part of the process we may consider how experiences and patterns from the past are affecting your life in the present, and we will balance this with a focus on your current concerns.
Sessions are weekly and last for 50 minutes, and I offer short-term counselling (typically 6-12 sessions to focus on a specific issue), and longer-term or open-ended counselling.
Getting in touch
If you are interested in finding out more, please email me at [email protected] to arrange an initial consultation, during which we can explore what you wish to gain from counselling and discuss any questions you may have.
Training and qualifications
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP, registration no. 179887) and abide by its Ethical Framework.
I have a Foundation Certificate and a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre, a leading integrative training institute. I am also working towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy at The Minster Centre, and these qualifications are accredited by Middlesex University.
In addition to private practice, I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for a GP practice, Home-Start Westminster (a charity that supports families with young children), and a low-cost therapy service. I am also on the editorial panel for the e-journal, Contemporary Psychotherapy, and on the board of perinatal mental health charity, MumsAid.
My previous career was in the charity sector, where I developed a particular interest in mental health and well-being. I have always been fascinated by how individual and collective experiences may shape lives, and originally studied history at university, gaining a BA (Hons) and MSc from the University of Oxford.
* My practice is currently full so I am not able to take on new clients at the moment. I will update this when that changes.*
My standard fee at London Bridge is £65 per session, but I charge a reduced rate of £50 for the initial consultation. I can also offer a short phonecall if there is anything you would like to discuss before booking a session.
