About me and my therapy practice
My name is Kerry Batten and I am a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I provide a safe, non-judgemental space and environment where we can explore your past and present experiences, your thoughts and your feelings in a way that leads to fresh perspectives, growth and improved wellbeing.
I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing with someone from outside your day-to-day life trained to listen and support. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself.
I have an enhanced DBS check, full indemnity insurance and am registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
I offer face to face sessions from a dedicated consulting room at my home in Bromham (Bedford) and online or telephone sessions nationwide.
My first session
Choosing a counsellor can often be a challenging and sometimes daunting experience.
I recognise how important finding the right counsellor is so I offer a free no obligation 15 minute call free of charge.
If we decide to work together our initial session together will allow us the opportunity to begin to get to know each other in a comfortable and confidential space. I will ask some questions about what has brought you to counselling at this time, how you are feeling and any hopes you have for the work we might do together.
