I work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are coping with difficult behaviours, anxiety or mood concerns. Parents can often feel overwhelmed in helping their children, so I support families to help them manage life stressors and difficult emotions. My goal is to help children, youth, and parents have easier and more pleasant days. I use evidence-based strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Within my work helping youth, young adults, and parents, I have a specialty of helping people coping with medical conditions or anxiety about medical procedures.

Clients often tell me that what has helped them most when talking with me is that they felt heard and understood – not judged. I help people who long to ignite a long-lasting, caring relationship with themselves and others but often find it easier to be critical than compassionate. I support people to embrace compassion for themselves and others, so they can repair relationships and invite joy back into their lives. In our busy world, where everyone asks us to “connect” on social media, it is easy to feel disconnected – from our friends, from family, from colleagues, from our own emotions.

Your kids are freaking out after what happened, and you don’t know how to comfort them. You’re already exhausted after parenting through a pandemic for the last month and emotionally worn out. Now you’re feeling rattled because you never expected so much to strike so close to home. Your sensitive child is taking everything to heart and is very upset. It can feel overwhelming to search for words to reassure them. Nothing you try seems to comfort them for very long and you’re not sure if you’re even on the right track. If any of these challenges sound like what you're going through, please know that counselling can help.

Life can be hard. My purpose is to help you reach your goals, experience more happiness, and feel greater satisfaction with your life. For some, this may include getting to a place of peace and healing. My work over the last 15 years has included working with victims of crime, especially those who have experienced domestic and sexualized violence. I use a trauma-informed approach which means if you have experienced trauma, you can find comfort in knowing that I can recognize its symptoms and acknowledge the impact it has on your life. I will give you a space where you can share your biggest challenges or your darkest moments.

Online Counsellors
Online counselling is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as Teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video or phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want counselling.

If you're looking for online counselling in Bedford or for a Bedford online therapist these professionals provide online therapy, skype therapy and video treatment.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Bedford are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Bedford you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Bedford and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Bedford or family therapy in Bedford.
