Hello and welcome to my site.I am Claire Harrison, a qualified Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor and member of the National Counselling Society. I am based in Newent in the Forest of Dean. I offer Face To Face Counselling sessions at my home, and at Gloucester Quayside Well-being, in the centre of Gloucester.

I also offer PHONE and ZOOM Counselling (I have lots of experience of using both now thanks to Covid).

So you may not live in my area but we can still connect and work together.

I have helped clients to work through feelings and identify thought patterns which are causing them difficulties, so they can feel happier and lead more empowered  lives.

I create a space where clients can relax and be their  "true selves,"  whatever that might be.I am able to sit with very difficult emotions , which you may never have shared before.I hope to give you acceptance for who you are in a supportive , warm and understanding environment.












Some see counselling as a weakness  I see it as a strength - giving yourself value, something to invest in that will stay with you for the rest of your life.


Because you count.Counselling does not mean you can never sort out your problems ever again on your own on the contrary my hope is that you are better able to do so than ever before.


Some of counselling involves teaching skills which were/are missing from childhood.It's about  realising a deeper undertsanding of how our own thinking/bahaviour patterns have come about.


But most of all to me  it's about discovering who you truly are. 

The first step can be the hardest but it doesn't mean you shouldn't take it.

You Can Change 

There are many ways you can help yourself to feel better

Who Do I Work With ?


I work with people of all ages ; from teenagers to pensioners. You never know what life will throw at you, at any age, or how it will make you feel. 

We all have a different journey to make

Qualifications And Experience


I have an Advanced Diploma in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling.I have been practising since 2018.

This type of counselling offers a means of helping people who are suffering emotional turmoil in their lives, whether brought about by crisis, a long term situation, persistant unhappiness, depression, apathy or difficulty relating to others.

Emotional Therapeutic Counselling holds the holistic premise that the spirit is of equal importance to the mind and body.It seeks to promote healing of the original wounds by working through feelings.Its aim is to bring clients to a wholeness from which they can comfortably live in their world and manage their lives.

The process works, but it does take time and engagement and commitment from the client.It is not a quick fix.Though some issues can be worked through easier than others.

 I have worked with clients who wanted help with: low-self esteem, suicidal thoughts, child abuse, addictions, domestic abuse, anxiety,  depression,  relationship issues, abortion, body dysmorphia, illness, infertility, adoption, anger, bearevement and loss.

 From a previous client:

" A safe space to share. I’ve gained so much having sessions with Claire. She is kind, calm, empathetic, gentle and wise. She’s mindful and respectful and always accommodating. I love her holistic approach and I connected with and found benefit in this. "



We are all different and this should be embraced. And this can be started by accepting yourself.From our nationality to our sexual/ gender preferance,different religions and dissabilities.We all have our own story.

Call today.The only one stopping you from changing is you.
