Claire taught a psychotherapy class I took at City Lit earlier this year. Her therapeutic approach deeply resonated with me and equipped me with a 'toolkit' of skills and tactics to better understand and navigate an array of issues in my life. Claire has helped me to trust and listen to my inner wisdom and ultimately connect with my true self. Her compassion and empathy really made me feel listened to and heard. I highly recommend Claire to anyone seeking counselling.

Claire Sainsbury has helped me to deal with my childhood trauma. She was professional and created very warm and safe atmosphere, where I was able to discover and heal my deepest wounds. I experienced a profound transformation in a very short period of time. I highly recommend Claire as a therapist. Xx

Talking with Claire has been cathartic. She is a highly skilled therapist, understanding, patient and very knowledgeable and never judgemental. Claire taught me the skills which I needed to move forward and let go of painful things which had been holding me back for years.
