Clair Astin

Clair is a qualified CBT therapist specialising in Rapid Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)

Clair uses an integrative approach to treatment and even when dealing with difficult or sometimes painful issues, the focus is on finding a reassuring way forward. Sessions with Clair focus on patient participation and includes talking and work to continue at home in order to put theory into practice. Clair's aims are to find solutions that are individually tailored to each patient in order to achieve optimum translation into daily life. 

CBT/REBT focuses on the present, what’s happening in the here and now, rather than looking to the past. REBT argues that at the core of emotional disturbance, lies a set of irrational beliefs that people hold about themselves, other people or the world around them. The focus of the therapy is to identify, question and change these irrational thoughts and encourage a more flexible approach to living that will increase personal satisfaction and wellbeing at home and in the workplace.
