Julia Hudson CBT BABCP(Accred) & BACP(Accred) Individuals, Couples & Corporates
I am an Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist. It is important that your therapist is accredited by the professional body for the specific type of therapy they practice.
I have worked with people experiencing emotional difficulties for 20 years. In my current roles, I work as a Senior Clinician within the NHS in an adult mental health service and am a Senior Lecturer on one of the few Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Masters programmes in the country.
In both roles, I provide supervision to CBT therapists and trainees to train knowledgable and highly-skilled therapists.
I am able to tailor individual, couples or corporate work to your needs. My practice is in Marlow with private parking and flexible appointments.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy aims at reducing emotion distress by developing alternative thoughts and behaviours about difficult life situations. This in turn leads to a change in emotions, or the intensity of their impact. By developing flexible attitudes and behaviours you can cope more effectively, now and in the future. These skills build resilience to manage challenges. They are transferrable.
The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT as the psychological treatment of choice for many presenting difficulties.
In my private practice, I use evidenced based CBT or counselling when working with individuals, couples and corporate organisations. Each treatment or programme is collaboratively designed for the person/s seeking help to empower them to reach their personal or professional goals.
Originally trained as a Psychodynamic counsellor, I am able to explore early difficulties that may be impacting current performance, management or relationships. I have a special interest in building self esteem and working with enduring issues.
I have offered stress-management, well-being and managing-change courses to companies invested in staff. Our work together would be a partnership focused on your own objectives and aspirations.
I am fully accredited with both the BABCP (CBT) and BACP (Counselling) professional accrediting bodies and subscribe to their ethical codes.

Sessions are usually weekly for 1 hour. CBT is usually time limited, but the total number of sessions may vary. Often 6 sessions can be effective in reducing distress. However some prefer to work on an open ended basis. It is worthwhile having a review of therapy after 6 sessions.
I welcome any questions regarding current issues or aspirations if you are considering a course of therapy with me. Please leave me a voicemail, text or email if I am unavailable due to clinical work. I will return your call as soon as possible.
I can offer therapy over Skype and FaceTime.
Daytime and evening appointments are available with private car parking.
