About us

Bedford Community Counselling (BCC) is a Person Centred organisation, established by three experienced therapists who are passionate about offering an affordable, professional and ethical counselling service to people living in and around Bedfordshire.

Our approach is Person Centred which places you, our client, at the heart of the work. Our focus is on supporting you as you explore and make sense of whatever difficulties, challenges, questions or experiences may have led you to therapy. We will offer you a warm, confidential and accepting therapeutic relationship, a place where you can feel listened to, supported and safe.

We are a Community Interest Company, which means that our focus is on supporting adults in our local community. Our core belief is that affordable individual and couples counselling should be accessible to anyone who wants or needs it, and so we offer a sliding scale of fees to make our service as available as possible. We promote and embrace diversity, equality and difference, in a confidential, neutral and comfortable environment, right in the heart of Bedford.

We also offer Clinical Supervision to counselling students and newly qualified counsellors. Please contact us for more information.

Please feel welcome to contact us by calling or texting us on 01234 362 730 or 07712 306 085, or if you’d prefer, send us an email to We understand that it can be difficult to make this first contact, so we will respond to you as quickly as possible.
