About me

Hello my name is Janet, I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am based in Peacehaven and offer therapy to local areas. Taking this first step to counselling can be difficult at first and I appreciate finding the right counsellor for you is important. There can be times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed or distressed we need some help and support. By exploring your feelings and life experiences, you will be able to gain insight and understanding, enabling you to heal and decide what is right for you.

I offer a safe, confidential space where I am a warm, friendly, non-judgemental therapist to you. In that space we can work through together, building a trusting relationship to address the issues that have bought you to counselling.

By being alongside you and allowing you to talk and go at your own pace, I can help you to explore and understand your feelings. I believe that each of us has the ability to heal, grow and become more self-assured. I will not judge or decide what is best for you, my belief is that you are the expert on yourself.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
