About me and my therapy practice

Are you constantly giving to others and find you have nothing left for yourself? Do you need some time for you, to explore your identity? Maybe you are suffering with depression, loss, anxiety, or sadness?

If you are finding life a struggle and feel you need someone to talk to then I can help. I can offer you a confidential, non-judgemental space where you can be listened to empathically.

I firmly believe that working with a Counsellor to explore what is going on for you, can lead to real change in your life. So whether you are adjusting to life’s changes or trying to overcome loss, I can help.

I am a professional, qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor. I am a registered member of the BACP and my work is bound by their Ethical Framework. I work integratively, combining my psychodynamic background with a person-centred approach, to help people overcome their fears and move forward with their life more confidently.

I have counselling experience of working with adults of all ages, particularly older adults. I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for The Counselling Foundation and at Bedford Counselling and Training, where I am currently a Trustee. 

I have experience working with adults experiencing a range of issues, including general anxiety, loss, depression, relationship and identity problems, coping with terminal illness and bereavement.

Practice description

My practice gives you the opportunity to reflect and explore your difficulties at your own pace in an empathic environment.

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and I offer weekly 50 minute sessions on an open ended basis, meaning the counselling can continue for as long as you like. 

My first session

After making an enquiry I will arrange a free, no commitment 10 minute zoom call to arrange a convenient day and time for an initial consultation. 

The initial consultation which would be for 1 hour at a cost of £50. It could be held at my counselling room in Bedford town centre or on zoom.

At the initial session I will talk with you about why you have chosen to come for counselling now and we can explore together what your counselling goals may be. It is an opportunity for you to ask any questions about your counselling.

At the end of the initial session we can decide whether we are a good fit to work together.
