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

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.

I never set out to work with a specific kind of person, however, around 70% of my clients tend to be women aged between 30 and 45. They worry, feel stressed and not good enough. They often find themselves saying 'what if' all the time having lost their zest for life without any knowledge of why! It might be triggered by past traumatic events, the challenges of juggling life, family or work. These feelings might be a new, unexplained experience or they may have been around for decades. Does this sound like you? Even if this doesn't, you may be like the other 30% of people I work with, and you matter too!

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.

Do you need other ways of expression in therapy than sitting and talking - in order to make true sense of your experiences? How to tell the story of YOU when words are not enough? Or maybe you have always been sensitive to images, colour, music or anything that is outside the spoken world? I am a creative integrative counsellor providing a safe and non judgemental space for you to reach your inner experiences beyond expressing them verbally. You don't need any artistic or creative skills to benefit from this form of therapy - the resources are already in you - we will work together on activating the right side of the brain.

If you're struggling with difficult emotions, feel flat, stuck in life or overwhelmed, it might be time to reach out. I have worked with people who are looking for support with depression, critical voices, low self-esteem amongst other mental health problems. I offer an empathic, safe space to explore thoughts and feelings and to think about our behaviours and how to change them. As we live life through different types of relationships (romantic, family, colleagues, friends) our sessions together will be based on a relational approach. As problems often arise from relationships they are also healed through relationships.

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.
