About me

People choose to come to counselling for a number of reasons.

You may be experiencing difficult feelings without knowing or understanding why. These feelings might include things like anxiety, depression, helplessness, confusion or panic.

You might be struggling to cope with a recent sad or traumatic experience or a difficult set of circumstances that you are going through at this particular time in your life. Or you might be finding it difficult to come to terms with past experiences or understand why such experiences continue to impact on your life today.

You may want to focus on yourself and your sense of who you are or you may want to talk about relationship issues or your role within your family, friendships or workplace.

Or perhaps you have just reached a point where you want to start to take more control over your life and to change repeated patterns that you realise that you keep falling in to.

Whatever your reason for coming to counselling you will be heard, accepted and treated with respect.

My interest and focus is in you as a person rather than the "problem" that you may feel you are bringing. Within this context I work with a wide range of issues.

I have 18 years experience of working as a counsellor and psychotherapist, am fully qualified and an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer professional and confidential individual and couples counselling in Goldington Road, Bedford.

In addition to my work in private practice I have wide experience of counselling within various organisations and charities.

I am also a Registered Adoption counsellor under the Adoption Support Agency Regulations (2005) which means that I can work with clients on any issues to do with adoption.

Please feel free to look at my web site for more information.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
