There are times in our lives when we all need a little help. When things just become to much for us to handle alone. I can help you cope with a wide range of anxiety, emotional problems and relationship issues. From Bereavement, Depression, Stress and Anxiety, Family Issues, Addiction, Eating Disorders, Abuse and Redundancy Issues to mention only a few. I am a BACP registered Psychodynamic Counsellor also using CBT. I offer a caring professional and confidential counselling service in Biggleswade and Royston and have worked for many years in commerce and industry so understand the pressures of work place stress.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have the WPF Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and the WPF Diploma in CBT. I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their code of ethics and practice.
I trained at The Herts and Beds Counselling Foundation (HBCF) and have worked at the Dunstable and Luton Counselling Service (DLCS). I have also been a volunteer counsellor for a short time at the Living Room in Stevenage which promotes and provides quality treatment for those with addictions to drugs, alcohol and addictive behaviours such as eating disorders and self-harming. I also work with drug and alcohol addictions in Prison. My private practice is in Biggleswade, Beds and Royston Herts.
I attend regular CPD courses and believe in staying up to date in the latest counselling practices. Call to arrange a meeting and discuss how we can work together.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
