Dunton Centre For Counselling And Psychotherapy
13 Church Street
The Dunton Centre was established in 1996 by a group of counsellors and psychotherapists who came together to create an independent therapeutic practice. The centre is dedicated solely to the purpose of counselling and psychotherapy.
We are located in a terraced cottage in a peaceful, rural environment.The centre is easily accessible by road (5 minutes from the A1). Biggleswade is 4 miles from Dunton and there is a regular bus service.
Since it's inception The Dunton Centre has developed a widely respected service which offers a diversity and richness in the different therapeutic approaches available. The centre is run by a Core Group of therapists who meet regularly for management, team building, supervision and professional development. This group is responsible for the administration and development of the centre, the allocation of referrals and the maintenance of ethical practice.
The Dunton Centre is used by local GPs, Private Health Insurance Companies, Employee Assistance Programmes and other statutory agencies. Many of our clients self refer by contacting the centre directly.
Some of our therapists offer therapy or supervision to trainee counsellors but please note that we are not able to offer reduced fees to counsellors in training, or placements.
CQSW BACP accred counsellor: Post Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Application of the Arts: Cert Supervision Skills
I am an experienced counsellor, who co founded the Dunton Centre 20 years ago.I have a background in social work with children and families, have worked as a secondary school counsellor and have delivered counselling training at post graduate level.
I have a particular interest in using expressive arts as a therapeutic medium in my work with adults and adolescents, and am currently undergoing additional training in creative supervision at The Institute of Psychodrama, at the Maudesley Hospital.
I offer individual and group supervision.
Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.
I am an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. My approach is psychodynamic, and involves exploring how our current difficulties are influenced by past experience. This enables us to discover new ways of relating to others, and living our lives.
Ann Edwards. PG Dip Couns (Univ of Herts); Accred counsellor ; Dip Supervision
I work predominantly with young people, in a secondary school, where I set up a counselling service 11 years ago. My interest in working with children and young people has led to several additional trainings specific to this age group, with Violet Oaklander, in the US,as well as trainings in play therapy and creative arts. I also offer supervision, to counsellors working in schools, with young people and those working with adults.
I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and Accredited Supervisor, working therapeutically with adult individuals and couples, short and long term, since 1993. My approach is humanistic and integrative; with a theoretical underpinning embracing both psychodynamic and primal models (my basic training), I incorporate understandings from other models in which I have received shorter trainings and/or supervision.
My aim is to offer a safe space where you can explore difficulties you are having in your life; whether this is to unlock and work through deep-seated, long standing issues which may have been hidden for years, or to look at a current personal problem and to understand and define the options that are necessary for you to get on with your life. With supportive and non-judgemental support the therapeutic process can help you to develop your own coping skills and draw on your own resources; at best, to come into relationship with yourself, the essence of who you really are.
I also offer individual and group supervision.

Annie Jones: MBACP (Accred). , Higher Advanced Diploma in Counselling, Advanced Post Diploma Certificate in Person Centred Couples Counselling
I am a registered and accredited BACP counsellor.My principle counselling models are psychodynamic and person centred,which reflect my belief that current difficulties can often be linked to early years experience,and that a warm, supportive and non judgemental relationship is the key to effective counselling.
I work with individuals (£45) and couples (£55).As well as my work at the Dunton Centre I mentor therapists who provide low cost counselling on behalf of a local charity.
