Clare Welch BA (Hons), FdSc, Dip
Are you Looking for an experienced counsellor who is passionate about helping people? It can be incredibly daunting when sharing life's difficulties, and situations with another person. It is my aim to create a safe and comfortable environment within which you are able to build trust with your counsellor in a non judgmental and confidential environment and where you can discuss your concerns openly and honestly. This might include talking about life events, (past and present), feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. I recognise that each individual is unique, so by using a variety of skills and techniques, I tailor my therapy to suit the needs of my clients.
I am qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working in the Coventry and Warwickshire area. From my private practice at Lifeways in Stratford Upon Avon and Pure Offices in Warwick I offer appointments daytime, evening or at weekends. During my career I have gained valuable experience working with adults handling a wide range of issues, helping my clients to achieve a better balance in their lives.
I work part-time as a school counsellor in a dynamic and forward thinking school who recognise the importance of offering counselling to children and adolescents and putting in place mechanisms and strategies to allow them to cope with the pressures of growing up in a changing world.
As a member of the BACP I adhere to the rules and regulations that ensure the safety of the client and therapist. In compliance with BACP guidelines, I engage in regular supervision to ensure I work ethically and professionally.
