Beverley Price - Counselling Practitioner MBACP

Hello, I am Bev and I hope to be able to help you in some way. I have worked as a therapist for fifteen years, starting as a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement and progressing through many years of training to become a Systemic Counselling Practitioner. I have helped a lot of clients over the years with various difficulties.
After completing two years psychodynamic training at Leicester University and a Person-Centred Counselling Diploma, I furthered my training through Relate and University of Hull to become a Relationship Therapist. I worked with couples and relationship difficulties and stayed with Relate for 9 years, during which time I completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Systemic Practice (Couples & Families) through Birkbeck College, University of London. This has enabled me to work with the whole family looking at the different dynamics within families and the alternative perspectives each brings. This work is really helpful when a family feels "stuck" with a problem and can see no way out. I can help the family to find new ways to move forward and re-frame their thinking.
My therapy work started in a college setting working with young adolescents who were struggling not only with their education and the pressures they felt but with other issues they found were affecting their day to day life, which can be experienced by anyone, at any age and from any social economic group.
I offer individual face to face and telephone therapy, couples therapy, family work, divorce support and working in schools with children aged 5-16 years. Younger children have found it beneficial to talk through play and having spent 2 years in a primary school, I was able to see lots of positive change for young children who were finding it difficult to express themselves.
I am a Registered Member of BACP and bring experience in working with many different client groups and have extensive knowledge in relationship issues, transitions, family difficulties, self esteem, depression, anxiety, grief and loss. My style of working combines psychodynamic, person-centred and systemic therapies to offer an understanding, supportive yet appropriately challenging approach to my clinical work, thus supporting clients to effect meaningful change and build better relationships.
As a Registered Member of BACP, I am bound by their code of ethics and have monthly clinical supervision, regular continued professional development/continued training and have full professional indemnity insurance.
I am approved and registered with DBS (Disclosure Barring Service).
I am available for sessions in the Wetherby/Boston Spa and Harrogate area.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you work towards a more positive life.
