Juliet Davies MSc MBACP
Clapham Common Clinic
151 - 153 Clapham High Street
I am a Senior Counsellor and Psychotherapist within the NHS with a small private practice in Clapham.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy, (BACP) and accredited on their register following their ethical guidelines and framework. I offer short and long term therapy.
Prior to working in counselling and psychotherapy, I had a career in television and have a good understanding of the pressures of the corporate world that my clients often experience.
Some of the difficulties I commonly work with in my practice include:
- Relationship difficulties with partner and/or family dynamics
- Feelings of frustration and anger
- Low mood and depression
- Sexual identity
- Separation and divorce
- Bereavement and loss.
Therapy can be turned to for all sorts of reasons and difficulties and at times may feel just too awkward or burdensome to discuss in depth with family or friends. In counselling, issues can be fully and freely discussed between us confidentially without the worry of embarrassment or judgement or feeling the need to edit what is going on for you.
It may feel daunting taking the first step to contact a therapist, but is worth bearing in mind that most BACP registered Counsellors and Psychotherapists will have had a rigorous training and have been a client in therapy themselves.
To request an appointment for an initial consultation send me an email providing a very brief outline of why you are considering therapy and I will respond within one working day.
The consultation gives us the opportunity to explore in detail what has brought you to counselling, what expectations or concerns you may have and to find a focus. All counselling sessions are one-to-one, weekly and based at Clapham Common Clinic. Unfortunately, there is no lift at the clinic and with several sets of stairs, access will be difficult for those with limited mobility.
Clapham Common tube (Northern line) is a one minute walk.
Clapham High Street railway station is a 5 minute walk along the high street.
Clapham Junction main railway station is 10 minutes on the bus.
