Throughout our lives, we are often confronted with experiences and/or difficulties that challenge us. Sometimes, these challenges can leave us struggling and in need of a space in which we we can safely explore, understand, and learn how to overcome these issues. ​ Through careful exploration, not only is it possible to learn how to overcome these challenges, we can also begin to understand how they can in fact offer us new opportunities to learn and grow. I take a open and collaborative approach to therapy and am keen to support you with any challenges you are facing

Having worked in couple therapy for many years, my main observation is the loss of connection most people feel to their partners. Sometimes, this disconnection may play out as, a general feeling of discontent, or constant arguments, maybe there will be a loss of desire. whatever the issue it can only be fixed by agreeing to reconnect. I believe that couples can make a choice to reconnect. My goal is to take couple on a journey from where they are to reconnection. Finding a level of emotional intimacy that will transcend any present and future challenges to the couple relationship.

Whether you are struggling with emotions, relationships or physiological symptoms of anxiety or depression I can offer a safe space to explore these. You may be struggling to understand why things are so difficult, and may be very critical of yourself, thinking you should be coping better. You might have experienced a traumatic event, or always felt that you don't quite fit in, blaming yourself. You will probably want to improve your life, feel better and return to some previous enjoyable activities. You might want to re-think your values and life goals to shift your future focus to something more rewarding.

The experience of coming for therapy is an opportunity for you to discover for the first (or subsequent) time in life that you can let go of all the judgements, the fear and hesitation, and begin to talk about what is bothering you. We become wounded within a sense of connectedness - in families, relationships, friendships and society - and paradoxically it is within a sense of connectedness that we can begin to heal. Healing the emotional brain takes time, but it is a creative and deeply fulfilling process that brings wonderful gifts with itself. I help my clients to begin to feel more balanced and calm within their mind and body.

One way to think about looking after your mental health is like servicing a car. You need the right specialist to identify and treat specific problems to get back on the road safely. I am an experienced, part-time lead clinical psychologist in an early intervention psychosis team. You will get a rich understanding of how your problems developed and effective strategies to treat them. I work with anxiety disorders (social, OCD, panic, GAD), PTSD, and depression. I target factors (e.g. fear of failure or the unknown) that fuel multiple issues. These issues can be fuelled across a lifetime by what you say to yourself and do.

I believe that not a single person will live a lifetime without feeling stressed, anxious or low at some point in their life. Life can throw many challenges and during these times it can difficult to see a way out or that things will get better. Sometimes we experience these difficulties a number of times, or for a long period of time. However your difficulties present right now, it is important to know that support is available and that change can happen. You can use the therapy to develop your sense of self again, look towards the future and deal with life's stressors (relationships, work, friendships, health, career) better.

Living with pain and illness leads to huge emotional distress, breakdown in relationships, difficulties sleeping, disruption to concentration and in turn being able to set goals and living a life of quality. These resulting difficulties further feed into the suffering and distress and create a difficult cycle to break. People with physical health problems need support to find ways to break these cycles and manage effectively and of in turn achieving a life of value.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Bedford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Bedford specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
