My names is Claudia Smith and I am an accredited BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered counsellor with over 10 years experience of counselling, specialising in providing online counselling, coaching and member care.
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 hope is that through our meetings whether face to face or online, we can work together to find a way forward for you to enjoy life more - have more time and energy for the people, projects and passions that are important to you.
I offer face to face counselling and coaching at my consultation room in Redhill, Surrey, UK or online counselling and coaching using Zoom, a confidential space online. I offer an integrative approach to counselling, which may include aspects of Cognitive Therapy, Solution Focused, Person Centred and Psychodynamic approaches. I provide both short term and open ended counselling, depending on your needs and the issues you want to support with.
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.
