My name is Barbara and I am a qualified children and young people's counsellor based in Bedfordshire, also taking clients from Milton Keynes, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

I have over 20 years experience of counselling children, young people and supporting families. I have worked in a variety of different settings including schools, colleges and for the NSPCC all delivering therapeutic work.

I am also a qualified practitioner in delivering Video Interactive Guidance (VIG) which is an attachment based approach, used to strengthen and improve relationships between children and their primary carers.

I am  experienced in working with looked after children and completing post-adoption work with families using a Dyadic developmental psychotherapy approach.

I am experienced in working with children and young people aged from 4 years to 30 years old.

I am a member of both the BACP and VIG UK governing organisations, and registered with private health organisations. Certifications, references and qualifications can be seen on request.
