Online Counselling, Individual, Couples Counselling, Telephone Counselling and Relationship Counselling in and around Bedford, Biggleswade, Rushden

Relationships either in a partnership with a spouse, or partner, whether married or not or a relationship with friends, family or work during COVID19 can be especially hard considering the circumstances?
Relationships need strong connections with our loved ones, friends and collegues and allow us to be at our healthiest and most productive and for many, these relationships offer an important source of advise, guidance, love and support.
However, fulfilling and supportive relationships don't come automatically and can be tested at these times. They require good social skills and a great deal of work, time and energy to stay strong and go the distance. Sometimes our most meaningful connections break down, for whatever reason, leaving us feeling lonely, disappointed and unsure of ourselves.
I also work with individuals and couples who have suffered an Infant Loss and are looking for a safe space to talk through their grief.
COULD YOU DO WITH A HELPING HAND? IF YOU ARE FEELING THIS WAY RIGHT NOW AND YOU DONT WANT YOUR LIFE TO COME CRASHING DOWN ON YOU, l can help you. We all need some support once in a while.


Counselling offers you a safe environment to talk through your issues with the support of an experienced therapist.


Who can I help?

I offer individual, relationship, online and telephone counselling where I help build a relationship that can support you as you try to see your problems clearly. I also offer at home counselling in the Bedford, Kempstone and surrounding areas. As your counsellor I can help you find a new perspective and to find a way forward to a better future where you have greater control. Counselling helps enable you to live your life in a more positive and constructive way.


Support that makes a difference in helping you cope with lifes unprecedented challenges.

How can I help you? Once you have taken the first step to counselling, I will provide a space where you will feel safe, supported, understood and not judged. I can help you to:
-Understand cultural differences
-Reduce anxiety
-Improve your depression and low mood
-Be free from guilt and shame
-Achieve a new normal in relation to health issues
-Bereavement
-Deal with stress
-Develop better relationships

I also work creatively with clients using art work, sand play and many more creative ways. This type of therapy allows clients who are unable to find the words to express themselves in more creative ways.
