Why Choose Clearview Counselling?
√ With my specific training and experience you can rest assured you are working with a Counsellor who has an in depth understanding of the issues and complexities that trauma brings.
√ I am accustomed to hearing and working with extremely distressing situations. You can feel confident I can 'hold' whatever you are telling me without having to worry that it’s too awful to say or that you have to be protective of me as you may feel with your family/friends.
√ I practice from a private residence in an informal atmosphere and with no marketing materials on display. Feeling assured that nobody knows why you are entering the property will thereby give you more 'space' to be able to focus on your session.
√ Being based locally and easily accessible to those in the Gravesend and Dartford area, makes it easier for you to attend sessions without worrying about time or the added expense of travelling further afield. This means you can continue with your daily life with the minimum of disruption to family life and working life.
√ Working with Clearview Counselling you are not limited regards the number of sessions available. You can choose when to stop, or maybe take a break and then resume giving you the knowledge you are in control. You also get to choose your counsellor rather than having one allocated to you which means you won’t have the anxiety of working with someone you may not feel comfortable with.
√ Working with Clearview Counselling means you won’t have to wait months for an NHS or a charitable counsellor to become available so you can start to feel better quicker.
√ My not working in a multi practice gives you the assurance that any time you make contact it is with myself only thereby allaying any anxiety about speaking with strangers.
√ Testimonials from previous clients gives you the chance to read others experiences of working with me so you can relax in the knowledge that clients in a similar position to yours have been completely satisfied and are feeling much better, meaning you can too.
√ Being a registered member of the BACP and ACTO confirms my training, qualifications and adherence to their Ethical Frameworks. This along with being registered with the Information Commissioners Office, being DBS checked and holding the appropriate professional insurance means you can be confident that I am meeting professional and ethical standards at all times.

"I was very fortunate to have counselling sessions for trauma with Carrie in the calming environment of her beautiful home. She put me at ease at once and I found her to be kind, caring and down to earth. I always felt that she listened to and understood my point of view and was able to take leadership and ask questions that helped me understand myself and my reaction to situations. It was important to me to make sense of my past trauma, how it impacts my current life, and with her help, it all clicked into place. Working with Carrie was so beneficial to me as she gave me techniques to help break my negative thought patterns. I have decided to continue with monthly counselling sessions to keep the momentum going with my positive thought processes. I have realised through sessions with Carrie how important self-care is for myself and in turn, how this impacts my family and those close to me." - Oct 2020
"I had been struggling with Anxiety for many years and had tried counselling previously and, while It helped, I had failed to really connect with my previous counsellor. After a relapse a year later, I found Carrie online and reached out, nervous about starting counselling again and the anxiety that attending the sessions themselves has induced previously. From very early on I felt completely at ease with Carrie. It was like she knew what I was thinking even before I said it. Making it clear that our first meeting was a no obligation discussion and guiding me through the way she worked and what I could expect. She created a really open, pressure free and judgement free environment which helped me immensely to open up. Once I did it was so much easier to find my way to recovery. The tools that I learnt with Carrie have been life changing and I feel she really tailored her approach to my needs knowing that I had done some aspects of CBT before which made it feel much more personal and gave me some control over my treatment. I would jump to recommend Carrie to anyone suffering with Anxiety and am forever grateful for the change in perspective she has brought to my life." - Aug 2020
"When I sought help from Carrie at Clearview I had concerns about anxiety/confidence but I decided to work with Carrie because she was friendly and caring and seemed a better fit than others I'd spoken to. I'm so pleased I did because now I feel better about myself and can start my life. My life is now back on track and are manageable when I break things down." - Jan 2020
"Carrie really helped me work through an extremely difficult period in my life through understanding my problems and also finding the root of the problems. The tools and exercises she gave me have been so helpful and I will use them for the rest of my life. She is so caring and a great listener and has completely changed my mindset to a positive one. I am so thankful and would recommend anyone to seek help through Carrie." - Dec 2019
