She specialises in how the teenage brain works and how it can impact on mood, behaviour and dealing with challenging situations.
Clare’s role in her private practice is supporting parents and teenagers to understand and find solutions for anxiety, depression, stress and de-motivation.
With qualifications and experience in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy using psychotherapeutic techniques, and Youth Mental Health First Aid, with additional professional qualifications in social work, Clare helps parents and teens who are struggling with mental health challenges and don’t know where to turn.
As well as seeing clients one to one, Clare runs online courses on Parent and Teenage mental health to provide tools and strategies to understand and cope with these ever present challenges. She describes herself as a voice for Teenage Mental Health which she believes to be ‘The Hidden Pandemic’.
Personally, she is the mum of two teen boys and shares her own teenage mental health journey to help others navigate theirs and to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.
