Claire Derby Holistic Therapies
About Me - Claire Derby MBACP. reg.
I've been a therapist since 2004, and in private practice since 2006. I've worked in youth and community counselling agencies and as a senior school therapist. I've run a weekly support group for home educating families and a monthly CPPD (continued personal & professional development) group for local peers.
My therapeutic practice has a thread of spirituality running through it that has over the years, developed into energy healing, mindfulness and meditation.
I've written a book on Reiki healing and several 'bookettes' which are available on Amazon. I have been running Reiki workshops since 2006, from Level 1 to Master Teacher.
I offer energy healing (Reiki or Spiritual Healing) in combination with talk therapy for clients that wish to try a slightly different approach. If agreed, I can teach relaxation and meditation techniques in session. Clients that are particularly struggling with stress, high blood pressure, anxiety and life-balance find combining therapies useful.
