I offer a confidential, professional and friendly experience, with the aim of successfully achieving relief, happiness and management of severe difficulties. My work is from private and secure rooms just north of Bedford.
Many personal decisions are made and problems solved though discussion with friends or family. However, there are times when it is right to seek help away from the familiar daily environment. Seeking counselling is about making a positive choice to get the help that you need. Counselling can help with most personal, relationship or identity issues. These can include:
- relationship and family difficulties
- historical sexual abuse
- work related issues
- divorce and separation
- personal growth
- anxiety, stress and depression
- coping with illness or disability
Each client is offered a full assessment prior to engaging in therapeutic work.
As a Senior Accredited member of BACP I work in accordance with their ethical framework.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
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.
