Juliet Layton MBACP (Snr Accredited)
Kingston Upon Thames
I believe that the counselling relationship can be a source of healing. Our past experiences contribute to who we are although we are not always aware of this and the impact on our current relationships and ways of being in the world. This means we are not always aware of the range of choices we have available and counselling can be a good space to learn more about ourselves and begin to make changes to address our distress and discomfort.
I can provide a warm and empathic space for you to talk and to try to understand things a little more clearly. I am trained to listen and support in a way that helps you gain new understanding and help you make changes if you want to. Many clients tell me that it feels hard to make the first step by getting in touch, but the sooner we have that first contact the sooner we can make a difference together.
The range of topics that people come to talk to me about vary. They may feel anxiety that they can't make sense of, have relationship concerns, feeling low or depressed, feeling stuck or lacking interest and motivation in life, perplexed how they keep finding themselves in situations that are not welcome, coming to terms with changes, traumatic situations or loss and much more.
In our first session we will explore what has brought you to counselling and understand what you would like to achieve. In future sessions through talking things usually become clearer. I offer you a safe and confidential space to work at depth to understand what is troubling you and what you need.
I have over 12 years of experience as a counsellor and 10 years of experience as a counselling trainer. I am a supervisor/professional consultant to those who work in counselling and medical settings.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you have or to arrange a first appointment.
