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.

Young adolescents, teenagers and children
I have worked in the voluntary sector for a number of agencies. Some of these positions have been working with young people and adolescents in both primary and secondary school settings.
At my private practice I offer both counselling and supervision and have gained much experience working with many different issues and a diverse range of clients/supervisees, including students training to become counsellors. I worked for The Hope Programme, which specialises in sexual abuse and rape trauma.
I work with couples and individuals.
I teach at ICT in Bedford (up to Supervisors course), which i enjoy very much.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
