Claire is committed to forming a strong therapeutic alliance with her clients. She seeks to foster a supportive therapeutic space where they can feel valued, while holding goals firmly in mind. As a humanist, Claire employs a person-centred approach in always considering her clients’ strengths, support networks, and socio-cultural context, and never their diagnosis alone.
Claire has been trained in Family Based Treatment (FBT) for Anorexia Nervosa, as well as CBT for eating disorders in adolescents and adults. She is a member of ANZAED, ACPA and the APS. She employs a range of other evidence-based therapeutic modalities, including DBT, Schema Therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions. She is also planning further professional development in psychodynamic therapy.
