Dominique Phillips Dip. Couns, Member BACP
My name is Dominique and I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor working within schools and Private Practice. I have extensive experience working with teenagers and adults affected by general & social anxiety, depression, low mood, relationships, self-esteem and family issues.
Depression, anxiety, bereavement .... and more - they all barge their way into our life, uninvited. Life's challenges come in different ways and to different degrees. Some clients struggle to get out of bed, others can't function like they use to do.
Whatever your struggle, talking therapy may be your answer.
I work in Bedford and offer sessions face to face, remotely (via Zoom), or ‘walk & talk’ in local parks.
If you would like to find out more about having therapy with me, please call me on 07734 113556 for a free 20 minute phone consultation. This is a really good way for me to better understand what you need. It's also a good opportunity for you to get a sense of me and ask any questions you might have about the process.

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.
