Counselling can help with both current and past difficulties or when life just doesn't seem fulfilling. Many people struggle to understand 'who they are' and having a professional dedicated to working just with them, can be life changing.
As well as problems such as stress, anxiety, depression and low self esteem, Bedford Counselling offers expertise in the areas of sexual abuse and assault.
With such personal issues, it's so important to feel that you really 'connect' with your counsellor. So before you commence counselling an assessment of your needs will be undertaken. This gives both you and your counsellor a chance to meet and get a feel for each other and for you both to decide if you feel you can work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
This service was set up by Cass Knight who began working in the listening field over 30 years ago, whilst training as a Registered nurse.
Having undertaken qualifications in Psychodynamic counselling, I have spent the last three years working with victims of sexual assault and abuse, as well as continuing in private practice as a counsellor.
As a Registered Member of the BACP, I work to their ethical code of conduct, offering confidential, sensitive, relationship-orientated therapy, where together we can work to make sense of and resolve the challenges that you are facing in your life.
