Dr. Claire Stubbs

Counselling Psychologist

With a passion for supporting vulnerable young people, Claire originally began her career as a youth worker.  Her determination to support young people overcome the challenges they may face and achieve their potential led her to deliver and manage health services targeting disadvantaged young people within East Sussex for several years,.  It was her work in this field that inspired Claire to embark on doctoral training in Counselling Psychology.

Since completing her doctoral studies, Claire had been working as a Counselling Psychologist for over ten years with children, young people and adults.  She describes herself as a integrative psychologist who combines different therapeutic approaches into her work.  She has extensive experience in working with a wide range of emotional and behaviooural difficulties in children and young people, including anxiety, deprssion, panic, OCD, chronically low self-esteem and bereavement.  She has a special interest in working with young people who may be struggling with addiction, attachment loss or more complex trauma-related difficulties.  Her evolving interest in trauma has led her to undertake more specialist training, including Internal Family Systems, Lifespan Integration and EMDR.

Claire’s passion for challenging social inequalities also inspired her to co-create a psychological coaching programme targeted at women who experience disadvantage. Nineteen groups were delivered within the last five years and the women brought a range of issues including sexual abuse, domestic violence, alcohol and substance misuse addictions, eating disorders and depression.  This intervention has proved to be transformative for some participants who successfully managed to make many positive changes in seeking safety from abusive partners.

Claire’s clinical and personal experience prompted her interest in the resilience research field in an attempt to understand what can be done in practice to nurture people’s resilience. Claire has completed her doctoral research on the mechanisms that support young men’s resilience to reoffending. Professor Angie Hart supervised this piece of research and subsequently Claire is now part of the Boing Boing team working with the University of Brighton.

Claire is a fully registered Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC).
