About me

As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that each of us is the best-qualified to find our own way in life. But that can be hard at times and it can sometimes be difficult to cope alone, and you may not want to discuss problems with friends or family.

A counsellor can help by providing a warm, thoughtful and non-judgemental space where you can voice your experiences and emotions and explore current problems or deep-seated issues. This can help you to gain a deeper understanding of who you are, as well as help you find ways to move forward and to become who you really want to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from Bedford College.

I have worked as a volunteer counsellor in the mental health field, with the homeless and currently for Carers in Bedfordshire in Biggleswade and Bedford.

I also work in private practice from rooms in Bedford and Shefford.

I have experience in working with issues including abuse, anger issues, anxiety, bereavement, bullying, depression, eating disorders, emotional abuse, family issues, low self-esteem, relationship issues, self-harm, separation and divorce, sexual abuse, sexuality, stress, and trauma.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
