About me

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I am a Supervisor, Certified Transactional Analyst and a fully qualified psychotherapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor with a masters in Transactional Analysis (TA) based in Bracknell Forest, Berkshire. I use relational TA as my main theoretical framework but also draw on other therapeutic methods.

I work with teenagers and adults and I specialise in working with anxiety, depression, stress, self-harm, relationship issues, school or work-related problems and childhood trauma.

Research indicates that the single most important aspect of successful therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and relationships, your experiences, thoughts and feelings. We can work on developing your self-awareness by gaining an understanding of any stuck repetitive patterns of unfulfilling behaviour or negative thinking. With self-awareness comes new choices and new choices lead to positive change and a new way of being.

If this is your first time in therapy, or you are unsure whether I am the right therapist for you, I offer a free phone call in the first instance during which you can ask me any questions and get a feel for how we communicate together. If we choose to proceed, we can agree a therapeutic contract in which we may decide upon a limited number of sessions, or longer term open-ended work.

I adhere to the UK Council for Psychotherapy Code of Ethics and am a member of this organisation.

My practice is within easy reach of the M3 and M4.

I offer appointments during the day and evenings.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
