About me

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 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.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership
