All about me
Hi there, my name is Clare Lackenby and I would like to thank you for taking the time to have a read through my profile.
First, I would like to keep this short and sweet as possible as I am no JK Rowling’s when it comes to writing. I also understand that these statements can be mind boggling. (So, I have added a little video below.)
Secondly, I want you to know that counselling is not as scary as you think. Clients are not lying around of sofa’s whilst a therapist analyses your every word. That’s just in the movies. You have done the scariest part and that’s to acknowledge that you may need support.
Lastly, counselling provides a space to be truly listened to whilst reflecting on your life. It can also help you make changes where need be or accept what is. My objective in all of this is to make you feel as comfortable and secure so that we together can explore what’s happening in your world and finding healthy ways to move through this part of your life.
Googling counselling can seem like a minefield, so much information to take in! Why not instead give me a call and I can offer a free thirty-minute consultation over the phone to see if this is the best pathway for you.
I look forward to hearing from you
