Sue Jennings - Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
Do you need a confidential, non-judgmental and safe space? There are times for all of us when we struggle and need emotional support. Sometimes the reasons behind our difficulties are obvious to us and at others we feel dissatisfied, but unable to explain why. Working with a therapist provides us with a safe place in which to explore with someone, who is concerned only with our needs, enabling insight and the possibility to find more effective ways of coping and increased resilience leading to a more fulfilled and satisfying life. With a therapist there is no other agenda and nothing is at risk.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy in a peaceful setting between Reading and Maidenhead. I am able to offer both short term and long term work; we can decide together which is most appropriate for you.
I offer an initial 30 minute session, which is an opportunity for us to meet and for you to decide if counselling is for you.
I am a fully accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy; for information about criteria for membership you can go to www.bacp.co.uk. I am also a member of the UK Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA).

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.
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.
