Central Bedford Counselling Service
15 St Cuthberts Street.
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor who works with in the ethical guide lines of the BACP. I value each client for their own uniqueness,and offer a safe non judgemental, confidential space from which to explore any distress that you may be experiencing. I have a wide range of experience in dealing with many of life's issues including ..anxiety, depresion, anger management, relational problems, bereavement & Loss..[see full list].
I work from a humanistic, person centred base, but believe that therapy must be a mix of both emotional and the cognitive; and so will integrate some aspects of other modalities, such as CBT, and existential therapies; this being dependant on the clients needs.But regardless of the type of therapy used,the outcome relies heavily on the mutual commitment between client and therapist to seek out creative possibilities for change and growth.
As a psychotherapeutic counsellor I can help you to understand your problems, beliefs, responses and life patterns. I will take you through a process that is both respectful,constructive and committed to your well being.

Many years experience working with a national charity, counselling a wide range of clients from many different backgrounds, and a variety of issues.Which in the main are referral's from local GP's and wellbeing clinics. Several years working as a professional counsellor in private practice.
In my non counselling life I have worked in various management roles [regional managers] developing skills and training, motivational speaking,and team building. However it is counselling that has given me the most satisfaction, as I find it such an enormous privilege to be a part of the creation of positive change in peoples lives.
