Talking Therapies

Talking therapies can be helpful for people who want to get their sparkle back, often after a difficult period in their lives. They take place in a safe and professional environment.

I am a registered, qualified therapist offering integrated person-centred counselling, working within a professional, ethical framework.

You can book a free initial consultation online here (subject to availability).

Take a look at the frequently asked questions below.

“How does it work?”

When you attend your first appointment, I’ll explain a few important details about confidentiality (see below) and then we’ll talk about how I may be able to help. Most people want to look at a particular aspect of their lives that’s not working for them. You might be suffering with stress, depression or anxiety and want to find practical, effective ways to manage your mental health. You might have lost your mojo at work, or are struggling to recover after the breakdown of a relationship, and you want to get your sparkle back.

I offer a free initial consultation to all new clients. This enables us to explore what you want from the therapy, and how I can help. I have appointments in Bedford and Milton Keynes (subject to availability). Appointments available over the ‘phone.

What type of therapies do you offer?

I offer an integrated approach, which means that the counselling I offer can blend models like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), methods like coaching, and philosophies like mindfulness – meaning each situation is tailored to the client. I have worked in a therapeutic setting for over 15 years. If you’d like to know more about me, click here.

“Is it confidential?”

Yes, with a couple of important exceptions. If you seem to be thinking about hurting yourself or someone else, or disclose that you intend to or already have broken the law, I’m obliged to let the relevant authorities know. I also receive something called clinical supervision during which I discuss my case load anonymously. This means I work with and talk about my cases with another trained counsellor, ensuring the work I do with you remains helpful, and within my remit.
