My name is Janette and I am a UKCP registered/accredited integrative psychotherapist and BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist working with individuals and couples from a base in Malvern. I aim to provide a therapy that is tailored to your individual needs and to create a safe and trusting environment for you to feel able to talk through and explore your difficulties. I have experience of working with INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES, YOUNG PEOPLE and CHILDREN aged 10 years and above.
As an integrative practitioner I support people with all kinds of concerns and issues, including bereavement and loss, anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma, dissociation, personality disorders, low self-esteem, anger, relationship issues and life changes, and can work on a short term and longer term basis.
I particularly welcome the opportunity to provide therapy, in addition to individuals, to couples, children and young people and trainee counsellors.
As a qualified clinical supervisor I also offer attractive rates for individual and group supervision. I welcome newly qualified and more experienced counsellors.
I offer flexible appointment times and work mainly during the evenings and Saturday mornings.
I currently undertake work for the NHS as a psychotherapist and in the past I held a post as a Quality and Professional Practice Manager within a counselling agency for CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE and ADULTS, where I held safeguarding responsibilities. I have experience of assisting individuals who present with a wide range of issues. I work with people experiencing a range of mental health difficulties, and have worked in several counselling organisations, including MIND and Cruse, as well as within an organisation which specialised in CBT, and The Bridge Counselling Service in Worcester. I have experience of counselling students in FE and at University.
I also specialise in working with/counselling trainee counsellors/psychotherapists and can offer support for those working towards BACP Accreditation and/or assisting qualified counsellors with the Accreditation process.
As an experienced and qualified lecturer and counselling trainer,
I offer occasional workshop sessions as CPD for trainees and qualified counsellors, and can also offer training sessions in specific counselling subjects to organisations.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
