Claire NewallI am a qualified Counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with a private practice in Mitcham (CR4), South London, which is easily accessible from Colliers Wood tube station (Zone 3),  Wimbledon (SW19), Morden, Tooting and Croydon, where I offer one-to-one counselling sessions, Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS), one-to-one Identity-orientated psychotrauma therapy (IoPT) formerly called Trauma Constellations and Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises (TRE).  I also run monthly group Identity-orientated psychotrauma therapy Constellation workshops or on request.

Counselling, Internal Family Systems and IoPT sessions can also be online if more convenient.

I have helped clients with a wide range of issues, some of which are listed below and whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety or going through a distressing challenge, I can provide a way in which to help you move forward so that you can live a more fulfilling and rewarding life.

Just some of the areas in which I offer professional support include;

  • Depression, feelings of emptiness, loss of purpose and/or direction in life
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Low self esteem
  • Anger issues
  • Abuse
  • Unresolved emotional issues
  • Repetitive patterns of thought and/or behaviour which maybe causing you problems
  • Relationship issues
  • Work related issues
  • Bereavement


In the one-to-one counselling sessions I offer a safe and confidential space where you can talk openly about your personal experiences and circumstances. Together we will explore and reflect on your current challenges, feelings and thoughts, enabling you to better understand your difficulties, what it is you need and to identify the areas of your life that you would like to change.  By helping you to re-connect with your inner strengths and resources, I will help guide you to discover new ways of approaching and dealing with your issue so that you can make the necessary choices and life changes that will enable you to move forward and live a happier life.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems is a method in which to get to know and understand the different parts of yourself that can sometimes be in emotional distress and/or in conflict. By resolving these internal battles you can then experience inner harmony and balance.

Identity-orientated psychotrauma therapy (IoPT)

An Identity-orientated psychotrauma therapy Constellation is an experiential process that enables you to gain direct access to the unconscious, repressed emotions and split off traumatised parts of yourself thereby providing you with the opportunity to re-connect with and integrate those parts thus facilitating change. You don’t have to consider yourself to be someone who has experienced a trauma in order to benefit from a constellation. Please visit the IoPT page to find out more how these sessions can help you with any issue.

 Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises (TRE)

I am a TRE Certified Provider meaning that I am trained to take people through the seven exercises designed by David Berceli which aim to release the residual charge left in the body after a trauma and also any tension from deep within the muscles. By releasing the tension and residual charge, the body is then able to relax, recover and be restored back to its natural resting state. This is particularly helpful for people with high anxiety, panic attacks, post traumatic stress and/or physical tension.
