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 and Couples Counsellor also using CBT and Mindfulness. 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.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
