About me

With over 21 years of qualified work experience, I specialize in stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues.  I can help you develop an understanding of yourself and others, and provide you with the support to work on the issues you face, facilitating positive change. It is a way of reducing any confusion and enabling choice; it is not about forcing you to take a particular course of action.  During the counselling session, I aim to provide a safe place where you can share your thoughts, feelings and concerns in as much detail as you wish. You will neither be judged nor have ideas or opinions imposed upon you.

Confidentiality, discretion and respect are of paramount importance to me, and my approach is friendly and down-to-earth.

I offer an initial free, 30 minute appointment.  This is an opportunity to meet me and discuss whether continued counselling would be appropriate to your needs and therefore it is without obligation to continue.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by the BACP ethical framework for best practice. All work is fully insured. I am also a qualified Supervisor.

Fees

I meet with clients in a warm, welcoming and confidential room in a central Bedford location. There is ample parking and wheelchair access.

Taking that first step to talk with a qualified counsellor can sometimes feel daunting and so I offer an initial assessment appointment, so that you can meet with me and ask any questions that you might have - with no obligation. If you decide that you would like to continue with our sessions then you can either book a block of sessions or choose to continue on a week-by-week basis.

From £35 for individuals and £50 for couples (on a sliding scale, if appropriate).

Concessions are available for students, NHS staff and unwaged.
