I am Clare Williams and I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Counselling from the University of Glamorgan, an advanced certificate in relationship therapy and a Postgraduate diploma in Consultative Supervision from the University of South Wales. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere to their Code of Ethics.
I believe that counselling is a conversation with a purpose and my approach puts my clients at the centre of the counselling process. Drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches, my sessions are tailored to suit the needs of each individual client. Life can sometimes be painful and difficult. I will help you to explore and understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space. I offer a confidential, compassionate and caring therapeutic experience where the counselling process can help create positive change, improve self-confidence and thereby promote well-being and self-care.
I have over ten years of counselling experience working in areas of bereavement and loss, anxiety, self-esteem, self-injury and depression. I am a qualified relationship counsellor helping couples and families explore, identify and overcome relationship issues.
My experience and expertise have been developed in a variety of settings such as Cruse Bereavement Care, Victim Support, FADS (family awareness of drug & alcohol) school-based counselling, working with young people aged 11-25 as well as my own private practice.
I am a qualified Consultative Supervisor with experience of facilitating both one to one and group supervision. I have supported and supervised counsellors in a school-based setting, those working with a national cancer charity, those working as drug and alcohol support counsellors as well as maintaining a private practice. I am available for one to one or group supervision.
