About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I am Juliet, a Counsellor & Bereavement Specialist helping adults and the over 16's to live a more content and fulfilled life through my experienced and gentle process of understanding, exploration and compassion.
Working comfortably & empathically, I support my clients through times of anxiety, stress, depression, self-harm, family discord & relationship difficulties. I also work with those who have experienced a bereavement, or another kind of loss such as the end of a relationship, a job/career, or the person they used to or yearn to be.
Maybe you struggle to talk about your troubles, or carry some shame that your mental wellbeing is not as it "should" be according to the perceptions/expectations of others, or even yourself? Perhaps you are concerned about being a burden, or carry guilt, and are really feeling in need of some support, help and genuine compassion.
You may have tried to get through things alone, or looked at self-help (books, social media etc). Maybe even meditation, exercise, eating well etc but things just aren't feeling any easier. I have been there, had my own struggles, had that yearning to wake up each morning feeling better and brighter & more able to cope with life. I hear you and I can help you to achieve this!
Trust, compassion, empathy and honesty are core to my ways of working and really go a very long way towards achieving the best therapeutic outcomes for my clients. Investing in counselling is investing in you and your future! Giving yourself the time, focus and attention that you deserve can make a difference to your life, to your mental, physical and emotional well-being.
Together we will seek to understand your troubles, find solutions & aim to ease your pain and worry - leading to a better and brighter way forward. You can find out more about how we can do this by looking at my website www.newstepscounselling.co.uk
My approach is one of Professionalism, Empathy, and the offer of a Warm, Safe, Non-Judgemental space.
I offer face to face therapy from a comfortable, private cabin within my own garden. If you feel comfortable with counselling from the security and comfort of your own home I can offer you this via Zoom or telephone. Or, perhaps you enjoy fresh air and the outdoors and would like to try counselling whilst walking and talking, or sitting quietly in a natural space? *
Please do feel free to contact me so we can discuss your needs, hopes and expectations from counselling and see how we might be able to work together either long or short term, in a way that offers you comfort and reassurance. As a qualified therapist working to very high standards of professionalism and under the ethical guidelines of my governing body (the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), I work with your best interests as a priority.
I encourage you not to feel ashamed or alone. So many are struggling right now in one way or another. Taking the first step can often be the hardest, but the best thing you can do for your future happiness and well-being.
I very much look forward to hearing from you.
*Face to face work in the Maidstone area of Kent only. Zoom and telephone UK wide.
My first session
Prior to our first session, we will arrange a short telephone or online call for you to share your reasons for seeking counselling and for us to explore if I am the best person to support you. If we both feel we can work together we will schedule a mutually agreed first session.
Payment is required at least 48hours prior to the session and we will use this time to get to know your worries and concerns in more depth and agree a focus for therapy based on what feels best for you.
