Hello – my name is Claire Barrett. I am an experienced attachment focussed therapist and supervisor, and a Registered Member
of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
I offer therapy to adult individuals and work with wide range of emotional difficulties.
Based in the Tunbridge Wells area, I am conveniently situated for clients living in the surrounding areas of Kent & the South-East.

Are you thinking about coming for counselling?

There are times in our lives when we experience problems that we find difficult to cope with. Perhaps you feel unexplainably low or possibly you just don’t feel yourself but are not sure why. Maybe your problems are hard to explain or share with those close to you or perhaps you don’t feel that you have any one to turn to. You may be finding a significant relationship difficult to manage healthily. Or there might be a specific issue or life event that you can connect your difficulties to and want help with. These difficulties may be affecting your quality of life, relationships with others & emotional well-being.

Some of the issues I can help you with:

  • Attachment based issues

  • Relationship issues

  • Binge-eating & disordered eating

  • Loss, grief & bereavement

  • Physical, emotional and sexual abuse

  • Depression & low mood

  • Anxiety & stress

  • Self-esteem

  • Sexuality & sexual orientation

  • Life stage issues


How can therapy help?

Therapy can give you the opportunity to explore how you feel and make sense of your difficulties in a safe & confidential environment. I will not give you advice or tell you how to solve your problems. However, through our work together, you can gain greater personal insight & self-awareness, which helps to make long-lasting changes that allow you to lead a more fulfilled life with an increased sense of well-being. My aim is to support you in gaining the confidence and capacity to better support yourself.

I work both in-person (face-to-face in the same room) and on-line (via video link). Please look through my website as it contains more information about how therapy may benefit you, the way I work and the type of issues I can support you with.

If you need any more information, please contact me for a free confidential conversation and I will happily answer any questions. Maybe together we can work out if therapy is right for you.
