Beverley Price - Counselling Practitioner MBACP
Hello, I am Bev and I hope to be able to help you in some way. I have many years of counselling experience, starting as a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement and developing my practice through various trainings to become a Systemic Counselling Practitioner.hj
My work as a therapist began in a Further Education college setting working with young people struggling through adolescence and the pressures that were affecting their day to day life. Of course, these pressures can be experienced by anyone, at any age and from any social economic group and there are different times in our lives when we stumble upon adversity, health issues, financial issues, loss, relationship issues etc.
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 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.
I can offer individual face to face, skype or telephone therapy and work with couples, families, children and young people (age 5-18) and individual adults. Younger children have found it beneficial to talk about their feelings and emotions through play engagement and in my experience I have seen positive changes in their self esteem, confidence and self-development, particularly in children who ordinarily find it difficult to express themselves.
My experience and knowledge includes working with relationship issues, transitions, family difficulties, self esteem, depression, anxiety, autistic spectrum and 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.
- I have full professional indemnity insurance.
- I am approved and registered with DBS (Disclosure Barring Service).
- I am available for sessions in the Boston Spa/Wetherby area, easily accessible from Tadcaster, Knaresborough, Leeds, York, Harrogate and surrounding areas.
Please contact me for a confidential and informal discussion. I can help you to decide whether therapy might be beneficial at this time.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you work towards a more positive life.
