KATH ATTWOOD - MBACP, Dips. Couples and one to one Therapist .
I work with individuals and couples who may be experiencing challenging and sometimes life-changing events no matter how big or small these challenges are, they are your challenges and life experiences. And you are important.
I aim to help you to work through some difficulties you may be experiencing for you to move forward in your life . You may simply want to be heard .
Therapy is an opportunity to develop yourself further and grow as an individual by exploring your own needs and looking at your behaviour patterns . I am an integrative therapist which means I may work with varied approaches to help me understand my clients further.
Please do get in touch by email or phone. I work with many presenting issues such as generalised anxiety disorder, depression, postnatal depression, addiction, abuse, relationship difficulties, panic disorders, phobias, loss in its many forms, and so many other areas that can complicate our lives and emotions.
What happens next?
At our first meeting we will explore what brought you to counselling, what you are hoping for and any expectations you may have from working together. Finding the right counsellor for you, who you feel comfortable and safe with, is hugely important. And if after the first session you feel I am not, then there is no obligation to continue. This is about you.
I provide short term and long term therapy and sessions are 1 hour. I offer day sessions and some evening time slots. I offer reduced rates for counselling students.
Please email or call me, or a text if that's better for you... I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

What type of therapy do you offer?
I am an integrative therapist, which simply means I draw upon a number of theories to help me gain a better understanding and knowledge of you, in the present and in the past. Enabling you to make sense of your past, your choices and your relationships could then help you to move forward in your life.
Where will our sessions be?
I offer a safe, non judgmental and confidential space for you to explore any issues that you are finding difficult. Talking things through can help you understand your own world and enable you to decide whether you want to make any changes.
I work from my own home in Hockliffe in Bedfordshire (which is on the main A5 and also very close distance to the M1).
I also work from an office in Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire. I am easily accessible from Dunstable and Luton too.
