Jules Fothergill - BACP (Accred.) EMDR, PG Dip. Supervision, PG Dip. Couples.
Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations...
Reached that point in your life when you feel you might benefit from someone listening to what’s going on for you right now? Someone that’s impartial, someone with no agenda and who is there for you. If so, therapy or life coaching may be the answer.
From time to time…
We all reach a point in our lives when we feel we can’t cope, the road ahead doesn’t look so clear, our problems seem overwhelming, we've lost our MOJO and no one seems to understand and people just don’t have the time to listen. Perhaps I can help? I’m Jules and I offer a confidential, professional, friendly, compassionate and supportive therapy service for individuals and couples.
Why is finding the right therapist for you is very important…
Research consistently shows that positive change is much more likely to happen when there is a good ‘match’ between there therapist and the client. My approach is friendly, warm and non-judgemental. My clients often tell me that I am easy to talk to and a good listener. Many of my clients come through personal recommendation.
Starting therapy can be a daunting prospect…
I recommend that following our initial telephone conversation, an assessment session is booked where we can sit together and discuss how therapy works, what your goals are, what has brought you to therapy at this time and you can ask any questions regarding therapy and how I work.
What I offer…
In my private practice I work with Individuals, Couples, Adults and young people (15 years upwards).
I have a choice of two offices for you to visit, both of which are dedicated therapy suites. I can offer weekday appointments, together with some evenings subject to availability. Wherever possible, I aim to offer an Initial Assessment appointment within one week.
- One to one Therapy (Short or Long Term)
- EMDR/Trauma Therapy
- Couples Therapy
- Life Coaching
- Group Therapy
- Psycho Educational Programmes – ‘Feel Well Live Well’
Short Term Therapy/Solution Focused Therapy, is usually based around a set goal. Which you, or we, identify together, following our initial assessment appointment. The aim is that, within six weeks, you have come up with solutions/resolutions to whatever the issue is and you are feeling clearer/better and know where you are heading and how to deal with the issue.
Long Term Therapy usually involves looking back at issues from the past and how they can impact our everyday lives still. We examine what is useful or not and how we might change historical patterns that we have fallen into repeating. We often look at relationships, family and early life all of which impact on who we are today and how we approach issues.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
