You may have tried other therapy without feeling that you’ve really been seen and understood on a deeper level

As somebody who has experienced a wide range of both life’s gifts and its challenges you understand the value of moving past the hurdles which block the way to your true path.

You’re open to the meaningful growth which comes from moving into and through the uncomfortable aspects which life can fold around us sometimes.

The hardest part is finding the right support when you need some help to move forward evolving into the next stage of your life’s journey.

That’s why you’re here. That’s why I’m here too. I have helped a lot of people from all walks of life with every challenge imaginable. I am here to help connect you deeper to the experience of your Self.

During a lifetime committed to empowering people on their individual journeys I’ve developed a radiant palette of healing strategies and helped many hundreds of people.

As a Doctor of Clinical Psychology with a successful career specialising in trauma therapy my work has equipped me with all the tools to help people find new light and meaning even when life seems at its darkest for them.

Integrating the wide range of well-being approaches I’ve studied during my career, I provide personally tailored support for every individual journey that I become part of.

Dr Claudia Herbert Expert Trauma Psychologist with over 30 years experience

“No two human beings are exactly the same. We might have similar paths, but everybody is different and needs to be honored in their uniqueness. Therefore therapeutic approaches that just do a one size fits all just don’t work”

A lifetime of learning has kept me connected to my own growth and development and my calling to help people heal

I knew very early in my life what my calling was and I’ve been fully committed to growing as a therapist, mentor and well-being facilitator ever since.

I finished my degree in Clinical Psychology at University College London in 1992 and I have never stopped being excited to learn new therapeutic approaches, as well as, well-being and healing methodologies. This has given me a wide range of tools and experience to draw on and so I work in a holistic way with a strong integration of body-focused and energy psychology approaches.

“The way that I am able to help people now is a culmination of all that I’ve done so far. I draw on a deep, beautiful lifetime of work, experiences and my own inner growth processes, inspired by healing and spiritual traditions around the world. Based on this I have been able to build my own inner compass which I will use to guide you through your processes to help you find and refine your own inner compass to help you achieve transformational healing and authentic growth.”

“Healing is not just on a cognitive level. It’s on a very deep level. For example, our body stores the memories. It’s not just the mechanical body systems, we also have a subtle body system. I work with all these parts in an integrative way during the therapy process”
