My name is Beatrice. You can call me Bea.
No matter the size or complexity of your issue. If it is troubling you, then we can explore it together. We can all benefit from professional help during a crisis in our life. I often find that clients think others have greater problems than they do and that their issues are therefore insignificant. Not everyone has the ability to be strong and resilient during all life crises. Seeking help doesn’t mean you are weak. Actually, reaching out for help shows that you are wise enough to understand something is wrong and can take bold steps to overcome it.
I can support you to live your life more fully by offering you a safe, open, non-judgemental and confidential therapeutic relationship for us to explore your issues and come to some deeper understanding and clarity.
I believe I can help you to gain some understanding of your issues. I will walk alongside you through any painful or confusing struggles you are having and help you to cope better and move on.
By offering empathy and seeking clarity in a therapeutic relationship striving towards trust and transparency, I hope you will discover that you have what you need to survive and be clearer about where you are in life and be a step closer to being the person you wish to be.
From the exploration of your thoughts and feelings we can work through what options you have open to you to consider any actions and how you wish to take things forward.
I have always been the kind of person who cares for others and enjoys empowering and being there for others. Being a counsellor therefore fits the person I fundamentally am.
Couples Counselling and Relationship Counselling
Relationships can be a great source of joy, pleasure and companionship, however, challenges and pressures from within and outside the relationship can put significant strain on the couple. Dysfunctional patterns of behaviour can be worked through. Couples and relationship counselling helps improve empathy, understanding and communication to create healthier relationships. Sometimes our work may be about creating healthier boundaries or finding a way to end a relationship respectfully. Couples counselling provides an opportunity to learn to communicate better and resolve conflict.
Family Counselling can make a different if your family is going through a tough time with stresses from inside or outside the family. Family counselling provides an opportunity to highlight your strengths, use them to your advantage and help you find ways to learn to communicate and function better.
Families do their best to be a resource to each other but sometimes the solutions we try form part of the problem and we can get stuck. Family counselling can be attended to address a broad range of issues including issues that individual counselling may be attended for. You may wish to attend family counselling to address issues that are traditionally considered to be individual issues (e.g. depression, self harm etc) and you may use family sessions to work through changes in family life.
Family Counselling is usually short term between 12-24 sessions.

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)
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

"Some people think counselling has to be a clinical/medical thing but Beatrice's technique is like a friendship. She made me feel completely comfortable and at ease because she genuinely cares and wants to help. It doesn't feel like it is a job to her and this is what I found is different from other counsellors I've seen in the past."
"I feel I have really got to my core, understand my behaviour and overall learnt about myself and my inner being/child. I feel much better now I have talked about deep rooted experiences and let them out in a safe unjudgemental environment. I do feel alot better for this.."
"I worked with Bea for a year, in that time she carefully managed my therapy needs and made a big difference to how I react emotionally to the world today, which is for the better. Her understanding and empathy towards my life experiences helped me to acknowledge, grieve and work through certain painful issues that were both conscious and subconscious. I have benefitted amazingly from my work with Bea and would highly recommend her as a therapist."
