Welcome to Your Online Counsellor
Counselling, Coaching, Stress Management  and Member Care
Redhill & Reigate, Surrey and Online

Hello, I'm Claudia Smith and I'm an accredited BACP registered counsellor with over 10 years experience of counselling, specialising in providing online counselling, member care and life coaching.  

I am passionate about helping people to feel better and live life to the full.   Whether you are looking for counselling support or motivational coaching,  I offer a conversational approach to working through problems, life issues and goals.  I believe everyone is unique and I tailor my approach according to your needs and what works best for you.  

My motivation for counselling and coaching is grounded in my personal Christian faith and I have an interest in how faith impacts us emotionally and psychologically. I adhere to the BACP code of ethics and so welcome and work with clients of all backgrounds, including those of faith and those of none.

Online Counselling & Coaching

Youronlinecounsellor provides counselling and coaching in a safe and confidential virtual space using Zoom.  Instead of meeting in my consultation room at The Westway Clinic, Redhill, Surrey we meet online at an agreed time and place, wherever you've chosen to log on from.

Online counselling is a convenient way of accessing the support you need, at a time and place to suit you.
Some clients prefer to meet in person first before working online, whilst others prefer to make arrangements solely online. Either is possible, the most important thing, is that you feel confident and comfortable about how you will work together. The same levels of confidentiality are offered so you can be assured that whether you meet in-person or online the same level of care is provided.

Counselling can help:

  • depression including postnatal depression

  • worry and anxiety

  • stress and work related stress

  • anger

  • bereavement and loss

  • interpersonal relationships

  • self-esteem & identity

  • decision making

  • re-entry for cross cultural workers

  • culture shock/stress

  • cross-cultural living

  • missionary life and work


Member Care Services

Are you a missionary or mission partner living and working overseas?  Are you preparing for your first assignment or returning from the field?  Member care services can help you at whatever stage you are in your missionary journey.  Whether you are preparing to go, mid assignment, preparing to return or have just landed back 'home'.  I offer a variety of support services to help you prepare for the different transitions of missionary life.  I also provide counselling and coaching support both remotely and in Redhill, Surrey. 

The transition to and from overseas assignments brings a variety of different issues to move through. Mental and emotional preparation and processing of your transition experience can help to alleviate or reduce the problems that arise during this chaotic time.

  • saying goodbye to family & friends

  • culture shock & culture stress

  • relationship struggles

  • parenting overseas

  • identity ~ finding a new role

  • coping with bad news

  • decisions about returning

  • re-entry issues

  • anxiety and depression

  • burnout

  • compassion fatigue
