Patricia King Counselling Service
I am a qualified BACP accredited counsellor and supervisor offering professional help and support to both individuals and couples of all ages. My work with clients is both short and long term depending on what suits the individual.
My core training was as a person centred counsellor, however, I use an integrative approach because I believe each person is unique and it is important to be flexible and tailor sessions to meet each clients particular needs.
As well as working as a counsellor and supervisor, I was a lecturer at North Herts College and Space2Learn where I taught person centred counselling courses. I currently teach at ICT in Bedford.
