Counselling with Claire Crampton

(She / Her)

Welcome to my page

If you still have any questions after visiting here please get in contact.

I have been working as a counsellor for around 10 years, supporting adults and young people.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and have completed a wide range of additional training and study since my initial qualifications.

My aim is to support people trying to better understand themselves, their choices, relationships and their own identity.

We can explore your past, focus on the present or consider what you want your future to be and how you might get there.

What to expect

How long will I need to come?

Because of individual needs this is a difficult question to answer, it can take this time to settle into the process of therapy.

Having consistency is important so we will work together weekly and review every six weeks. You can stop your sessions at any point in time but I ask for us to plan for an ending session.

Parents/ guardians are requested to commit to supporting sessions for as long as their young people wish to attend and to speak to me if they are considering stopping sessions.

What can I expect to know about sessions?

An aim of counselling is to provide a safe and confidential space for your child to express themselves and explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

An important part of the therapeutic relationship is privacy to feel able to speak openly. Therefore, limited communication occurs between myself and parents, this includes booking session times, arranging payment of fees and informal reviews depending on the client’s age, capacity for decision making and their wishes.

The exception for maintaining confidentiality relates to safeguarding. If, after assessment or a counselling session I feel they, or someone else is at significant risk of harm I will make contact with yourselves, their GP or the emergency services.

What is the therapy room like?

The room at Oast House is a quiet and private setting to receive counselling in, we have plenty of free parking and toilets onsite.

Inside the room I provide art, play and other creative tools to help exploration.

Counselling for Adults

  • Counselling Agreements are provided between us which outline how we will work together.

  • Counselling sessions generally begin the following week.

Counselling for Young People

Whatever their age, trying to find support for your child can feel overwhelming.

If you are a parent referring a young person I offer a free 20 minute phone conversation to discuss their needs before booking an initial consultation.

How does it work?

  • Firstly, please get in contact and we can find a suitable time to have a brief conversation about their needs and any further questions you may have.

  • We will arrange a time for your young person to have their initial consultation with me. Initial consultations cost £30 and last up to one hour. Please be aware we are unable to offer a place to wait in the building, most parents choose to wait in their cars or drive into Odiham during sessions.

  • After the initial consultation their first session will be booked, and they will attend weekly providing them consistency.

  • Agreements are provided between myself and your child and separately with you. These outline how we will work together.

  • The young person attends their first session.
