Clare Soloway has been a psychotherapist, group leader and an explorer of the uniqueness and the mystery of human beings for over 40 years. She trained in the United States and then returned to England in 1970 where she co-founded the first centre for Humanistic Psychology in Europe, Quaesitor. She was trained as a Gestalt and Bio-Energetics Psychotherapist and as a Group Therapist; her teachers being amongst the pioneers of the early days of Humanistic Psychology.
Clare has traveled all over the world leading groups and trainings. In the seventies she lived in India in the Rajneesh Ashram and returned to England to establish a major commune in Suffolk and London, Medina, where more than 200 people lived and worked. Since leaving the Rajneesh movement in 1984 (see life changing moment) she has been in private psychotherapy practice and has continued to run groups around the world.
For six years she worked in the area of HIV and AIDS which she considers to be among the most profound and humbling experiences of her life, working with people who faced some of the greatest challenges that life can bring, often with immense courage and determination to live every moment until the very end. For a number of years she has taught psychotherapy to degree level as well as clinical supervision for graduate therapists.
Clare has an enormous respect for the lifelong journey of discovery and learning which each human being is part of and continues to live her own life with a joy for adventure and the fun of taking the next jump into the unknown.
