Thames Therapy Network
We are a group of Psychotherapists/Counsellors who have joined together to offer experience and excellence in Psychotherapy and Counselling.
In working together we aim to offer appointments quickly and at a variety of locations and times. Our therapists work in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.
As a network of Psychotherapists and Counsellors we can offer a variety of treatment models/services to find the right treatment for you and the difficulties you are facing.
All Thames Therapy Network Psychotherapists/Counsellors offer a safe, confidential and regular therapeutic space for you to discuss and reflect on your difficulties with a therapist. Through these discussions with a therapist, insight into your difficulties can be gained, you can feel heard and empathically attended to and these experiences combined can offer sustained psychological changes which can help you move forward with your life.
Therapy is usually recommended face to face. Therapists may also offer online appointments when face to face work is not possible.
Training, qualifications & experience
Thames Therapy Network Psychotherapists/Counsellors are UKCP, ACAT, BABCP or BACP registered and all have additional previous training in a Mental Health or Social Care core profession.
Thames Therapy Network Psychotherapists /Counsellors have gained extensive experience from working for many years within the NHS as well as in the Private Sector. This enables us to bring a wealth of experience, reliability, and a capacity to help with both complex/challenging difficulties as well as more straight forward psychological issues.
All Thames Therapy Network Psychotherapists/Counsellors attend regular Continuing Professional Development training events, conferences and workshops to ensure best practice, effective treatments and to maintain high professional standards.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

Areas of counselling we deal with
Fees can be discussed with the therapist on direct enquiry, and whether you wish to self fund or use medical insurance. We aim to keep fees realistic, manageable and competitive.
All Thames Therapy Network Therapists/Counsellors will offer an assessment of the difficulties you are experiencing before making a recommendation for treatment. Recommendation for treatment will include likely duration of treatment, likely frequency of sessions and an explanation of the treatment model.
