About me

Hello, my name is Renee, I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and Psychodynamic Therapist. I work with people face to face from my therapy room near Steyning and on line.

I offer a bespoke, inclusive and professional service.

It can feel hard choosing a therapist so I invite you to take a look at my website or give me a call.

As a counsellor and therapist I have worked with people of many different ages, backgrounds and lifestyles, with issues ranging from bereavement to relationship difficulties and general anxiety.

Perhaps you have experienced something difficult, you're feeling anxious or depressed or you may be curious about where you are in your life right now.

Whatever your reason for seeking support,  I'll work with you at your pace, either in an open-ended way or to a set number of sessions.

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.
