Clare Fisher MBACP  CSAccred

The Neurodivergent



I am a down to earth, friendly and caring qualified pluralistic Counsellor/Psychotherapist. 

I want to work with you to support you to find solutions to your problems.

In our sessions I will listen, I will talk but I will not judge.

I will use my skills to support you, empower you and help you to become the resilient authentic person that you know you can be.

The choice is yours.

Booking & Availability

Email Therapy

The process involves you writing your problems and concerns in an email, and Clare Fisher Psychotherapist replying with a considered therapeutic response.
Read and write emails at a time that suits you. There is no need for an appointment.
Take as much time as you like to get your thoughts and feelings down in writing.
Writing down the things that are on your mind is very helpful in itself – the act of sharing can provide some relief. Articulating your thoughts, feelings and concerns in writing can begin to give insight into what is happening in your life.
It allows you and Clare time to consider issues and solutions more thoroughly.
Putting pen to paper, or in this case, hand to keyboard – is great for individuals who do not feel comfortable speaking about their problems out loud or are more at ease with the written word.
Freedom to record what is on your mind as it occurs.
Writing in comfortable/familiar surroundings reduces your inhibitions, allowing you to be more open than you might be face-to-face.
Able to refer to the conversation history.
Just knowing that there is Clare to respond to your problems without judgement can provide an enormous sense of comfort and support to anyone attempting to overcome a difficult period in their life. 
Responses by encrypted email are guaranteed within 24hrs. 7 days a week Sunday to Saturday.

Reading: Every 30 words that the client writes are considered to be 1 minute
Writing: Every 30 words that Clare writes to the client are considered to be 2 minutes
For a fee of £25 a week you will receive up to 1hrs email written support - if you require additional time with agreement an additional fee will be levied.

You can access email counselling as a standalone or in addition to online or face to face counselling.

Family Portrait

"As parents we were able to witness the change our child went through whilst in therapy. From being anxious, continuous worrying and not wanting to attend school, she became more confident within herself, able to enjoy social interactions with her friends and to flourish into the amazing teenager that she is. Thanks to Clare’s professional skills, ability to create relations of trust, creativity in sessions, accommodating our child’s needs, her genuine nature and perseverance - our child has made significant progress and we are so grateful for that. "

 "Clare is friendly, kind, and created an environment where I felt comfortable talking about my personal problems. As a result of our sessions, my confidence has improved significantly and I now genuinely feel comfortable with myself. With the prospect of going to counselling was initially daunting, Clare really helped me to feel at ease and I found the sessions really helpful as they allowing me to understand how I could improve my life and become a more confident and relaxed person. 


Thank you for all your help! My confidence has grown more than I could have ever imagined and I am at a point where I feel happy and comfortable with myself"

Working at home

"Clare I want to thank you for all of your help. I still think about how you made me realize that all I ever really want is to be appreciated and how I can use my daydreaming to help me rather than hinder me. I was having a hard time at that point and my discussions with you really helped me get through it. Thank you again for everything!"

Adult Client Quote

Man Working at Desk

"I think you are a fantastic and methodical therapist with the ideal way about you, and you don’t judge which is incredibly important."

Adult Client Quote

Outdoor Sports

"Clare really helped me by allowing me to talk though lots of stuff and went above and beyond by allowing the sessions to run a little long. Clare gave me some very useful tips on controlling my feelings of anger. I haven't pursued more counselling because Clare made me realise that I need to really change my situation before addressing anything that is still lasting. By realising that it has allowed me to carry on knowing that how I feel should change or at least evolve when I move on. I do struggle to express myself and I think this is one of those times but Clare really helped me at points when I really needed it which I can only thank her for. I would and have  recommended Clare to others." 

Adult Client Quote

Hiking With Child

"Clare is a really kind, and generous listener. She never made me feel judged. Instead she asked questions that made me reconsider my perspective on events and myself."
