Claire Hall offers a safe and empathetic environment so clients can explore their emotions and consider the best way forward for themselves. She allows the client to direct the session while using a range of methods to help the client develop a greater understanding of themselves and move towards a fulfilled life. She uses an integrative approach so the session can be tailored to the clients’ needs however her core style is client-centred therapy which she believes leads to the best exploration and development for clients. She may incorporate some CBT as a coping tool for anxiety and negative emotions.
Before training to become a therapist, Claire worked in human resources for many years which has led to a thorough understanding of the pressures of the working environment.
