Person Centred Therapy for Addiction

Addiction is a complex and multifaceted issue. Whether it's substance abuse, gambling, or other addictive behaviours, Clarina Counselling & Psychotherapy offers a safe and supportive environment for individuals to explore their relationship with addiction. Through Person Centred Therapy, clients can gain insight into the underlying causes of their addictive behaviours and develop coping strategies to overcome them.


I have previously studied addiction extensively and have worked very closely with people who suffer from sexual, substance, and gambling addiction issues. It is a subject which I am particularly empathetic towards. Please know that you are not alone, and that there are supports out there to assist you.

Person Centred Therapy for Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are among the most common mental health disorders, affecting millions of people worldwide. At Clarina Counselling & Psychotherapy, I understand the debilitating effects that these conditions can have on individuals and their loved ones. We take a Person Centred approach that focuses on creating a non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings freely. By fostering self-awareness and acceptance, I help empower clients to manage their anxiety and depression more effectively.

Person Centred Therapy for Trauma

Trauma can stem from various sources, including childhood experiences, accidents, or interpersonal violence. Regardless of its origins, trauma can have a massive ripple effect on an individual's mental and emotional well-being which is why a Person-Centred approach to trauma therapy recognises the unique needs of each client. Through compassionate listening and validation, I help clients process their traumatic experiences and reclaim a sense of safety and control in their lives.

Person Centred Therapy for Eating Disorders

Eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder can have devastating effects on both physical and psychological health. At Clarina Counselling & Psychotherapy, I provide specialised support for individuals struggling with disordered eating patterns. I adapt a Person-Centred approach which aims to uncover the underlying issues driving the eating disorder, which is typically derived from low self-esteem, perfectionism, or past trauma. By fostering self-compassion and acceptance, I help clients develop healthier relationships with food and their bodies.

Person Centred Therapy for Bereavement

Bereavement is a natural part of life, but the grieving process can be incredibly challenging to navigate. This can include the loss of a loved one, a pet, or a significant life change. Clarina Counselling & Psychotherapy offers compassionate support for individuals experiencing grief, implementing a Person-Centred approach that honours the unique experiences and emotions associated with bereavement. This will provide a safe space for clients to express their feelings and memories openly.

  • What is psychotherapy, and how does it differ from counselling?
    Psychotherapy involves a more in-depth exploration of emotional issues and typically addresses deeper-rooted patterns and concerns. Counselling tends to focus on specific problems and finding solutions for them within a shorter timeframe.
  • How do I know if I need psychotherapy or counselling?
    I can help you determine the most suitable approach based on your individual needs and goals. If you're unsure, feel free to contact us for a consultation to discuss your concerns and explore your options.
  • How long does therapy typically last?
    The duration of therapy varies depending on factors such as the nature of your concerns, your goals for therapy, and your progress over time. Some clients may achieve their goals in a few sessions, while others may benefit from longer-term therapy.
  • Is therapy confidential?
    Yes, confidentiality is a fundamental aspect of therapy. I adhere to strict ethical guidelines and professional standards to ensure that your privacy is protected at all times. Exceptions to confidentiality are rare and typically involve situations where there is a risk of harm to yourself or others.
  • What types of issues can therapy help with?
    Therapy can be beneficial for a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, stress management, self-esteem issues, and more. I have extensive expertise in various therapeutic approaches to address diverse concerns effectively.
  • What happens during the first therapy session?
    During the initial session, your therapist will gather information about your current concerns, personal history, and therapy goals. This session also provides an opportunity for you to ask questions, discuss your expectations for therapy, and build rapport.
  • How often will I need to attend therapy sessions?
    The frequency of therapy sessions depends on your individual needs and preferences. Initially, sessions may be scheduled weekly or bi-weekly to establish momentum and progress. Over time, session frequency may decrease as you make strides towards your therapy goals.
