About Barbara Clarkson Counselling
Life sometimes seems like an enormous battle, or a long and lonely journey with little meaning, or a deep pit of despair and hopelessness. I believe it is important for you to find the right person to work with when you feel vulnerable. This profile aims to help you get a sense of who I am and how I can work with you.
I can support you to:

Move out of depression
Manage anxiety and panic
Resolve relationship difficulties
Break free from eating disorders
Heal trauma and reduce stress
Come to terms with bereavement
Develop self esteem & improve confidence
Process distress resulting from childhood experiences

I have completed an in depth and varied training as a psychotherapist, and continue learn and extend my skills and knowledge of working with people in counselling and psychotherapy.
I have 20 years experience in working with people in all sorts of circumstances, from all walks of life. I base my approach as a counsellor and therapist on the belief that we all can be impacted, changed and ultimately strengthened by going through painful experiences with the support of the right person. Human beings need other human beings to help them process pain and heal emotional wounds. I offer many alternative perspectives, skills, knowledge and resources from my professional world, along with my empathic and compassionate approach as another person, to support you in understanding yourself, your relationships and your best way forward.
