My counselling experience is through working in the NHS in a GP Surgery and at present I work in private practice. I believe our therapeutic relationship is an essential part of the process and it is through this relationship that an awareness and understanding of ourselves empowers us to make the desired changes.
“We are all in this together and there is no therapist and no person immune to the inherent tragedies of existence” (Yalom 2002).
In order to maintain my professional standards and to continue to practice in an ethical way I regularly attend Supervision with experienced professionals. In addition I attend Continual Professional Development programmes in order to enhance my work.
Recent training has been in The Fast Trauma and Phobia Cure also known as the Rewind Technique - undertaken at the Human Givens Institute. This technique is also helpful for other life experiences connected with strong emotional memories.
I am also a qualified Subtle Energy Medicine Practitioner with a Diploma in Subtle Energy and Crystal Healing. To find out more about this form of complimentary therapy please visit my website by just clicking here to Diane Clarke Energy Healings.
Prior to becoming a counsellor my background was working in a business environment. I have experience in managing and coaching a team; team building; career development; office dynamics, financial issues and maintaining staff well-being.
