About Claire Ballardie


Hi. I guess you would like to know more about me, Claire Ballardie.

I am a qualified psychotherapist, and am registered with the BACP.  One-to-one counselling can help you to cope with life’s challenges in this ever-changing world. Basically, you talk. I listen, guide, support.


eco therapy


Sessions can be in my studio or outside in my lovely garden or fields. Ecotherapy is about, bringing nature into our sessions, adding opportunities to open up conversations about what would help you.







I have my own horses and ride regularly.I also work with my horses in equine assisted therapy. They have always  played a big part in my life, and are invaluable for therapy work.

I am also a riding instructor specialising in Classical Dressage on the BHS Register of accredited coaches with many years experience with horses.You may know me as Claire Lilley.


Healing runs in my family, and I was drawn to the path of helping others by my paternal grandmother. An intuitive and caring lady, she had an affinity with both people and animals, and a horse lover also. Her ‘healing hands’ were a mystery to me as a child, but as a  Reiki Master I now understand the effect of balancing the body’s energy and promoting self-healing.

I am a  Member of the UK Reiki Federation.
