Clare is a warm and compassionate Clinical Psychologist with a passion for supporting parents during the perinatal period. She has gained specialist experience in perinatal mental health through her work at St John of God Raphael Services. Clare recognises the enormity of the transition into parenthood and provides a warm, caring, and non-judgmental environment to collaboratively work with parents to explore their difficulties. She has a particular interest in supporting parents who have experienced trauma either early in their own life, through the loss of a child, or birth trauma.
Clare has a depth of experience from working with clients with a range of difficulties and has worked across various settings, including private practice and both inpatient and outpatient services. She focuses on the unique needs of each individual client and provides evidence-based treatment that is trauma-informed. All of her work is underpinned by attachment theory and draws from a range of therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, and Compassion practices.
