About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Julia, I am an integrative counsellor / therapist, Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional,  working with children, young people and adults in schools, colleges, non-profit organisations, community services (in partnership with NHS Trusts) and the private sector.

There might be many reasons why people seek support to improve their emotional / mental health; feeling lost, bereavement, anxiety, depression, past traumas, to name a few. The process of counselling / therapy – with its safe and contained environment – offers a path, along which those difficulties can be explored, creating meaningful long-lasting life changes. My integrative approach, underpinned by psychodynamic, humanistic, attachment and systemic theories, is employed through talking, creative and play therapy in a warm, caring and approachable way that can be adapted to each client’s needs.

Above all, I believe that compassion, willingness to be present and genuineness are the essential ingredients of a good therapeutic relationship, which facilitates the conditions where psychological shift can occur.

Practice description

Consultations

Counselling takes place in a comfortable and informal setting, just 12 minute’s walk from Clapham South or 15 minutes from Balham. Parking is free except for 10:00 - 12:00 on weekdays.

The room is equipped for creative and play therapy.

I also offer online and over the phone sessions. I prefer to use the platform Zoom that complies with GDPR regulations.

An initial phone consultation is offered free of charge, so I can assess your needs and create a personalised plan. You could also email me any enquiries and I will reply within 24 hours.

My first session

During our first session (online or face to face) we will talk about your current circumstances, and how you are: emotionally and physically. We will also discuss your concerns and your goals in greater depth. This assessment will inform how best we might work together. We will agree a therapeutic plan, and sign a work alliance contract (confidentiality, safety, data protection etc).
