Counsellor & Psychotherapist - Addlestone & Godalming Surrey

About me

Julia Haygreen, BA (Hons) Counselling, FdSc Degree Counselling, Diploma Counselling, MBACP (Snr Accred), Clinical Counselling Supervisor

At times when you may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious, alone and finding life difficult, counselling can be helpful. I am here to support you.

Connection and communication with others is an essential part of life, particularly at times of difficulty, crisis, heightened anxiety and isolation. It is human nature to grow and develop by relating to other people, in personal or professional relationships or through shared interests or experiences. When this becomes difficult to do, when something in life changes, when you feel isolated or withdrawn and don't know how to get back on track, I am here to help. I will offer support, clarity, gentle guidance and an impartial ear to listen as you work towards gradually feeling more connected with yourself and others. Within this safe and supportive relationship, we work together to create positive change in your life. Please note that I work with adult individuals 18+.

I can support you to, among others;

Work through present difficulties

Focus on a specific issue, crisis point or experience in your life

Connect with and identify your feelings

Manage difficult feelings such as anger, guilt or shame

Address difficult or challenging relationships

Make relationship decisions

Understand yourself better

Repair old and familiar patterns that are no longer working or perhaps never made you truly happy

Heal from past experiences and trauma

Discover the unknown about yourself

Accept parts you may be less comfortable with because they make you human and whole

Increase self-awareness, self-esteem and confidence

Develop a positive outlook

Embrace new opportunities

Feel free from people-pleasing

Build ways to better self-care

Experience deeper relationships with yourself and others which feel more genuine and fulfilling

As a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I offer a safe, private and accepting space for you to talk things through. Talking with me separately from your friends or family and feeling emotionally safe and understood may help you to open up more because I will not judge or give advice. Our time together will involve me helping you to work through your experiences and become more aware of your feelings, behaviours and thoughts. Together we will look at how to develop self awareness and self acceptance and to find your own voice when relating and communicating with others, which will enable you to move forward.

Certain counselling styles suit some people differently to others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support to meet your individual needs. With my support and gentle guidance, these are all possible;

Healing from old wounds

Freedom from the past

Recovery from unhelpful patterns

A new outlook

Healthy connection with your feelings

Improved relationships

Reaching your goals

A better, happier way of living

I have experience working with the following issues, among others;



Relationship issues


Panic Attacks



Life direction and purpose



Feeling lost or overwhelmed

Suicide / suicidal thoughts

Health anxiety

Short term health concerns

Long term illness


Multiple Sclerosis


Workplace disputes

Disciplinary procedures


Personal values


Feeling isolated or disconnected



Workplace stress


Feeling stuck in life

Fear of change


Fertility difficulties

Pregnancy loss

Internal conflict


OCD behaviours



Guilt and shame


We will go at your pace, with gentle encouragement, to look at the difficulties you are experiencing.

This can ...

Trigger thoughts and feelings about other experiences you have had

Help you make sense of them and why they are still having an impact

Heal old wounds, repair patterns and improve current relationships

Lead to old, harmful feelings being replaced by new, positive emotions

Integrate these experiences into your new way of being in a way that is healing and transformative.

Trainee Counsellors

I have extensive experience supporting students with personal therapy during counselling training. I provide a safe, trusting and wholly empathic space in which to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences both past and present. Working through transferences as they arise within our therapeutic relationship will help you become more aware of the impact of past experiences and relationships on your life today. Being able to explore this openly, honestly, with curiosity and genuineness and without judgement is a fundamental relational aspect of the way I work.

As training material may arise within or alongside your own therapeutic experience, I am mindful of maintaining a safe and boundaried space. Therefore, I work with minimal numbers of counselling students across a range of training institutions so that I can support your counselling process wholly impartially and without outside influence.

Concessions are available for trainee counsellors, please contact me for details.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
