About Us

Courage2be Counselling Services founded by Janine Hodge, MBACP, Counsellor and play therapist, was established to help make a difference to the mental health and wellbeing of children, teens and adult across Herts, Beds and Bucks.

Janine and Nic trained together as Integrative Counsellors and grew to really respect each other’s professional standards, skills and passion for empowering and supporting people’s wellbeing.

They collaborate well as a team and offer a wealth of different experiences, knowledge and choice. (Click on individual profiles below for further information.) But above all, their warm and caring approach and willingness to work with clients to ensure that the therapy is genuinely meeting their clients’ needs and expectations is what really contributes to their success.

Having a strong desire for best practice, they take the time to really listen. They welcome client feedback and take their continued professional development seriously.

The team are members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and they hold an enhanced DBS certificate and releveant public liability insurance.

Courage2Be offers a group of warm and caring counsellors with a wide range of backgrounds, experience and specialties to help meet your specific counselling needs and to support you with mental health difficulties, life difficulties or past or present trauma that may be causing worry or concern.

Please contact Janine on 07887353151 or complete our contact form to book an initial assessment. Following the assessment, if Courage2Be feels like the right counselling services for you, we would look to connect you with your preferred choice of counseller.
