Julie Terry-Jenner BA (Hons), MBACP
131 Victoria Road
I am here to offer you support to explore why you may be feeling anxious or unhappy, or because you find yourself repeating behaviours which do not seem to be healthy for you. We all go through tough times and sometimes we get to the point where we need some help in dealing with things. I will not judge you and will support you to find the right solution for you.
A bit about me.
I have worked for some years in various support roles, including mental health, and it was this journey which led me to counselling. My work with Mind and The Olive Branch have given me experience and training to support you through your difficult times. I will work to help you understand why you feel anxious or find yourself repeating situations which are not good for you. I will support you to uncover your answers and to work out how to do things in a way which works better for you. Many of my clients have suffered from depression, stress or other issues and I have supported them to understand why they feel like this and what they can do differently. In helping on a short-term basis, I can offer coping techniques which can support you in beginning a longer journey of looking at how you would like to make changes to improve your life.
As a counsellor, I will give you the space and support you need to explore your thoughts and feelings and to help you resolve your issues. I will provide you with a safe space, and will listen without judgement, and will work with you to find some insight into how to bring about positive changes in your life and relationships.
How can I help?
Anxiety or feeling as though something is not quite right is a common theme and something I work with a lot. We all have times when we feel anxious or unhappy, but if it is continuing it can help to get support in dealing with these feelings.
Have you found yourself perhaps feeling alone or unable to cope? Counselling and psychotherapy can help you work through these times and I am here to support you in this.
I will listen to what is worrying you and support you to explore how you could feel more comfortable in yourself and your life.
We will work together at your speed and according to what feels important in the moment. We may look at situations which have been similar in the past and look at how you might do things differently.
What can I help with?
I work with a range of issues including:
Worry and panic
Mental health concerns
I offer either long-term or shorter, fixed-term counselling and psychotherapy depending on your need or circumstances, and work on a face to face basis.
As a counsellor in Alton, I am happy to see you at Pure Alternative Therapies and feel lucky to work in a beautiful building. Please see pictures below.

£45 per session (50 mins), initial consultation £25 (50mins)
Payment is to me made by cash or cheque at the beginning or end of each session, or can be made via bank transfer or Paym before our session.
If you need a third party, such as your employer, to be invoiced for payment please discuss this with me when you call and I may be able to consider a special arrangement.
A telephone chat gives us a chance to get to know a bit about each other so you can get a feel about me and how you might feel working with me. We can then arrange an initial appointment where we can gather more information about each other and begin to see how I may be able to help you.
I offer a space where you can say things you might not feel able to say elsewhere, or to explore areas of your life where you feel things aren't quite right but do not know how to change them. You will have the time to feel comfortable with sharing with me and I will offer support while you do this.
I feel privileged that clients feel safe to open up to me and these are some of the lovely words which have been given to me following our work together:
"I felt an immediate connection with Julie. She has been amazing: I am a different person from the one I walked in as!"
"Although I consider myself to be quite a private person, keeping my problems and worries to myself, talking to Julie was easy as she made me feel valid and listened to...She has given me skills and ability to manage my thoughts."
"Julie has enabled me to look at things in a more positive way and has helped me value myself."
