Clare Harland

Clare provides individual support for adults to help them navigate uncertainties and upheavals in their lives, reflect on emotions, behaviours and relational patterns that may be causing them difficulty, and explore ways forward. She has experience working with issues including bereavement and loss, major life changes, anxiety, depression and relationship problems.

Her training is integrative, so she draws on a variety of approaches, including person-centred, psychodynamic and attachment-based therapies, and tailors her response to each client’s individual needs. Her priority is to create a safe, supportive environment where people feel accepted and listened to with warmth and respect, and where challenging thoughts and feelings can be unpacked. This process may include exploring together how experiences and patterns from the past are affecting a client's life in the present, while also maintaining a focus on current concerns. 

In addition to private practice, Clare has worked as a volunteer counsellor for a GP practice, Home-Start Westminster (a charity that supports families with young children), and a low-cost therapy service. She is also on the editorial panel for the e-journal, Contemporary Psychotherapy

  • Diploma in Integrative Counselling (BACP accredited; validated by Middlesex University)
