Counsellor - Clare ScuddsMy name is Clare Scudds and I am based in North Tonbridge. I am qualified to Advanced Diploma level in counselling and have been seeing clients in person since early 2008. In 2020, I began opening up my practice to people throughout the UK with the addition of online and telephone counselling.

My counsellor training was at Waverley Abbey, Surrey, with CWR. There I completed my Introduction to Biblical Counselling (2004), Certificate in Christian Counselling (2006), Diploma in Christian Counselling (2008) and Advanced Diploma in Christian Counselling (2011). In 2020 I undertook a Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling with Counselling Tutor. In 2022 I completed my Level 5 Certificate in Counselling Young People through The Mindspace Foundation. I also undertake CPD (Continued Professional Development) training with a variety of training organisations.

As a member of the Association of Christians in Counselling and Linked Professions (ACC) (Mem ACC) and an accredited member of the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) (MNCPS (Acc.)) I abide by the ethical frameworks set out by these professional bodies and have professional liability insurance. I am also on the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register of both these professional bodies and of the NCPS’s Children and Young People’s Therapist (CYPT) Accredited Register.

I am a committed Christian and work with people of any or no faith without discriminating, prosthelytizing or imposing my personal beliefs. I have counselled individuals of different genders and ages (11+) on a variety of issues, as well as working with couples in relationship counselling.

My desire is to see all people find a sense of value and purpose as well as a freedom to enjoy life and discover their potential.
