ABOUT ME & MY APPROACH
Gráinne Clancy is an accredited counsellor focusing on working with clients emotional difficulties in a life filled with uncertainty. These may have resulted from your professional experience or roles in your personal life as a carer. With a background in nursing, Gráinne's compassionate approach offers her clients a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space in which to focus on their own thoughts and feelings. This gives clients the time needed to recover and regain confidence and self-knowledge. Gráinne believes counselling is a powerful solution that can positively transform lives.
The recent Pandemic has caused collective loss and change. As we start to emerge and socially engage with others can result in feelings of anxiety. These feelings can feel troublesome and impact your life.
Grainne explains how she has a large toolbox filled with different approaches which she uses for each client. The most important part of the toolbox is listening to you. The toolkit is filled with varying types of therapy, including listening to you about the solutions you use in times of difficulty. The factors that result in thinking, feeling or behaving a particular way. Bringing awareness to the here and now, gently accepting you. Bringing my own personal experience and professional knowledge to provide you with a unique therapy kindly allow you to live a life of your choosing.
I was born and grew up in County Antrim at the height of "The Troubles" My career in nursing ended after twenty years of working in this field. Personal reasons included a fear of feelings, worrying and "Imposter Syndrome". I learnt through my life and through individual counselling how to change these habits.
I have nearly thirty years of experience working as a nurse, social care worker. The last seven have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist. This gives me a unique insight in supporting you to gently accept you.
