Clare Beckell is a BACP and PTUK  registered therapist and supervisor with 14 years experience of working with children, young people and adults. Following her training as a Play Therapist, Clare gained experience as a Creative Attachment Therapist with an adoption support agency. This introduced Clare to a deeper understanding of attachment theory and early developmental trauma. As well as adopted and looked after children, Clare has worked therapeutically with children in schools who have experienced trauma.

Clare is also Co Director for an attachment based parenting programme that uses talking therapy and the creative arts to support pregnant mums and mums and babies in groups. In this role, Clare also trains professionals in infant mental health and maternal mental health. Clare is passionate about supporting families in the perinatal period in order to give babies the very best start in life.

Clare has recently pioneered an attachment based parenting programme for Somali speaking mums and their babies and is now working therapeutically with refugee mums and babies.

As a supervisor, Clare works with teachers and safeguarding leads, family support workers, therapists and students. She leads group supervisions for trainee Play Therapists for PTUK. Clare has also completed the two day TISUK training on reflective supervision.

Clare recognises the importance of good supervision in order to support professionals working with traumatised children and their families. She is able to create a safe space for practitioners to reflect, be listened to and validated. She is keen to raise awareness around the impact of secondary trauma which professionals can be vulnerable to. Clare’s supervisions are informed by mindfulness, neuroscience and heartfelt presence.
