A Bedford Counselling and Wellbeing Service
Finding someone to talk to who listens and understands you can be the first step of the journey towards positive change.
I offer a person-centred counselling service for young people, adults, couples and EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) which is a talking therapy focused on you and your individual needs and concerns.
"We use the word 'therapy' to cover talking therapies, such as counselling, psychotherapy and coaching. Therapy offers a safe, confidential place to talk to a trained professional about your feelings and concerns. You might talk about difficult events in your life or your relationships and emotions or you might have negative thoughts and behaviours that you want to change.
Therapists will not give you advice or solve your problems for you. They will listen to your story, helping you to understand yourself better and make positive changes in your life"
"We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening of this very special kind is one of the most potent forces for change that I know"
This 'special' kind of listening is what you can expect from our therapeutic relationship. I will actively listens to you and our work together is solely concerned with your needs and goals.
I am dedicated to working with you to help you find your own solutions.
Person-centred counselling works with you, the person, not with any diagnosis or label you may have been given.
This means that I will accept you as an individual, with your unique experiences and perspectives, and I won't make any assumptions or judgements about you, or tell you how you should live your life.
You are the most valuable asset in your life; you deserve to live the best life you can and counselling helps you to reach that goal.
What I do is actively listen to you to help me to understand your life from your viewpoint so that together we can help you to work out how to come to your own conclusions about the best way forward for you.
