YVONNE WALKER

What I do


Therapy offers the support necessary to gain insight into your past and present way of being. It helps you to understand yourself better and enables a greater sense of self-acceptance. I can help with issues, including, anxiety, low mood, low self esteem, loss, trauma and stress. I can help you to understand and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour and thinking. 

How I work

I work psychodynamically. This way of working focuses on the importance of the unconscious and the way that past experience shapes current behaviour.  I aim to help you to make sense of your current situation

and the feelings and thoughts associated

with it in the context of past experience.

My training


After a career with one of the big four accounting firms, I trained in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy at Birkbeck  College in London. I have experience of working with adults of all ages. I have worked in a variety of settings, including, with young adults in a University Counselling Service and with adults in community counselling agencies.  I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling

and Psychotherapy (BACP).  

How I work          


I work face to face from a consulting

room in central Bedford, online and on the telephone. I offer both short and long

term therapy. We can discuss you needs at the initial assessment session. 

Cost and sessions

The standard charge is £45 per session. I offer a limited number of lower cost sessions.
