My name is Claire Beatson, and I have over 30 years experience in social work and counselling roles within local authorities, the NHS, and voluntary sector. As a counsellor, I offer counselling and supervision. I also have a special interest in mindfulness and how that can effect our ability to heal and improve the quality of our lives, offering individually tailored sessions, or can be incorporated into counselling sessions.
I would describe myself as a Person Centred counsellor – as such my way of working is empathic and collaborative. More recently my passion for being outside in the natural world, has led me to undertake a short course in Outdoor Therapy (September 2018) which I am using as a platform to begin taking therapy work outside. I will develop a separate section for this website, but please ask if you would like to consider this way of working. I also use creative means for expression into my work.
I work with groups and individuals across Greater Manchester. However, for organisational and group work other areas can be considered.
Please get in touch if you have any queries or would like to discuss further:
