About me

Hello, my name is Janet and I am a BACP registered psychotherapist based in Medway.
I offer face to face counselling at my room in Gillingham and also Walking Talking therapy, Zoom, Facetime or telephone. 

I provide a safe, confidential and relaxed space, if you require face to face counselling, alternatively walking and talking therapy is offered if you feel freer and more relaxed outdoors.
I also work creatively if that is something you are interested in.

There is a free initial 30 minute phone consultation in which we can discuss your needs and what feels comfortable for you.

The sessions are 50 minutes long and in this time we can explore and process the difficulties you are facing at your own pace, with personalised and confidential therapy to improve your well-being. 

'We don't get wounded alone, we don't heal alone.'  - Carl Jung

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership
