Hi. I guess you would like to know more about me, Claire Ballardie.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, and hold the CPCAB Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I offer one-to-one counselling to help you to cope with life’s challenges in this ever-changing world. Basically, you talk. I listen, guide, support. Sessions can be in my studio or outside in my lovely garden. Waffle welcome!
I am also a riding instructor specialising in Classical Dressage on the BHS Register of accredited coaches with many years experience with horses. I have my own horses and ride regularly. They have always played a big part in my life, and are invaluable for therapy work. 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.
