I am a BACP therapist located right in the middle of Shefford , just off the high street next to ample free parking.
I am able to see clients face to face or on line. I am happy to see children, young people and adults on an individual basis.
I can see you for single sessions, short or long term counselling - which ever you need right now.
I am an integrative counsellor meaning I can adapt my approach to best suit your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, Diploma in Counselling Diploma. I am a registered member of the BACP. I am currently working as a college lecturer in counselling, as well as in a primary school.
I used to counsel in a Men's Category B prison which involved working with complex individuals with trauma and anger issues. I worked with students aged 16+ at a local college. I spent two years volunteering for CHUMS and underwent their bereavement training, going into schools seeing children on a one to one basis. I also helped run anxiety and bereavement workshops.

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.
