About me

Hello, my name is Renee, I am a BACP accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering counselling and talking therapy to people face to face, from my therapy room near Steyning and on line.

I offer a bespoke, inclusive and professional service, supporting people to recognise their own choices and live more fulfilling lives. 

I work with people of many different ages, backgrounds and lifestyles, with issues ranging from bereavement, to relationship difficulties, childhood trauma 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.

Training, qualifications & experience

BACP Accreditation, PGDip Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counselling, BSc (Hons) Psychology, MDip Management

Before training to be a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, my career had been in statutory services, working within the NHS alongside patient groups and service users as a senior manager and as an analyst for the police and Local Authorities.

Currently I work individually with Adults experiencing (amongst other things) anxiety, burnout, depression, bereavement and alongside this work I am committed to supporting front line teams working with people experiencing multiple complex needs, providing Reflective Practice spaces.

I continue my professional development in areas such as trauma informed practice, Neuro-Diversity and working with couples.

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.

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.
