Hello. My name is Beverley, (B. Counselling). I am a Person Centred Therapeutic Counsellor. I work from a dedicated counselling room within my home in Biggleswade.
How can Counselling help
Counselling is a personal journey of exploration and self discovery. For whatever reasons you are looking at coming to counselling, I can provide you with a confidential and safe space for you to explore your feelings and inner self. We can work together within an empathic, trusting, non-judgemental relationship to help you find a way through life's challenges. Counselling can assist you in understanding yourself better and deciding on choices that work for you.
Am I the right Counsellor for you?
Finding the right Counsellor for you is very much a personal choice. I offer a reduced initial session fee to enable you to see if I am the right person to support you. I can work with adults and with children and young people and have an enhanced DBS certificate.
Session times available
I can offer sessions that suit you; long or short term - you decide; whatever suits your needs. I can offer early mornings or later evening sessions if you require them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the BACP and work within their Ethical Framework to ensure safe practice.
Level 2 and 3 Certificate in Counselling studies (cpcab)
Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (cpcab)
Specialist training (via Rape Crisis) in working with trauma in Sexual Abuse Survivors.
I have attended numerous CPD training sessions around supporting people with trauma, child sex abuse, domestic abuse, loss, anxiety, additional needs and mental health. I continue to attend regular CPD workshops to enhance and update my counselling practice.
I have experience of working with children/young people struggling with mental health issues; anxiety, loss and additional needs. Prior to starting my Counselling path, I have worked with children and young people supporting their emotional needs within an educational setting for over 15 years.
In addition to my Private Practice, I volunteer with an Agency supporting clients who are survivors of sexual abuse (historic child abuse or recent sexual abuse) and domestic violence.
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.
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).
