About Clancy Care Counselling
I became a counsellor because I want to help you reduce your levels of anxiety. I was born and lived seven miles from Belfast, in the height of The Troubles, stress and anxiety were unknown natural states of mind for me.
I started working as a care worker in a nursing home when I was nineteen. I previously worked for the National Health Service in County Antrim and Scotland. I eventually trained to be a general adult staff nurse. I enjoyed getting to know patients. I gave up nursing because I worked in an environment that caused me stress and anxiety and having not dealt with my underlining stress and anxiety I became overwhelmed. Going for therapy empowered me, and I set out on my journey to train as a counsellor/psychotherapist.
I have discovered through personal therapy and my training techniques such as mindfulness, self-compassion and taking care of myself which have resulted in my being comfortable in my own skin. Therapy can provide the space to empower you.
