Hello, I’m Bev. During this uncertain time I am offering video or telephone counselling with immediate availability. Life can feel overwhelming at times and when our thoughts are disorganised it can be challenging to see a clear way forward and to make positive and healthy choices. Although it is helpful talking to others, many people feel more comfortable and more able to be fully open, talking to a trained professional.
I am an Integrative Person-centred Counsellor. I have experience in supporting and helping both adults and young people suffering difficulties including; bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and trauma. I will offer you a safe, non-judgmental and confidential opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings and help you begin your journey towards a better, more positive future.
I can offer you an accepting, compassionate environment where you can talk about anything that is troubling you without judgement. You can contact me for a free consultation where you can share your concerns or ask any questions. Together we can discuss a realistic, therapeutic plan aimed to help you feel better and move forward.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling Psychotherapy (BACP) guided by an Ethical Framework ensuring my clients receive the best possible support and service. I have monthly Supervision in accordance with BACP recommendations and I continue to advance my personal development by attending workshops and seminars. I am also a Mental Health First Aider.

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.
