Julia Huby, BA (Hons). UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
1 Westbourne Grove
Hi, my name is Julia. I am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist. Through the relationship between therapist and client, I will listen and support you as you share your experiences and difficulties. Some of your difficulties might be that you are not feeling like yourself and you are struggling to connect with the world. You might be feeling stress, depression or have personal problems that you cannot cope with.
I feel the emotional pain we experience when we are unable to move forward can stop us from being ourselves. It can affect everything around us so that we cannot appreciate what is good in our lives. Integrative relational therapy is a way of exploring these unresolved life issues and feelings. Through the safety of our conversations I can support you to identify the changes you can make to move forward.
How I Work
Using an integrative approach, I work with clients in confidential sessions. This can be short-term or long-term counselling. In our sessions, the relationship between therapist and client is at the centre of the integrative approach. My support and empathy encourages you to explore your difficulties and become self-aware of your problems.
Psychotherapy usually explores deep rooted, long standing or repetitive patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating to others. My approach is to look in detail at what the problem is that you are facing and to help you raise awareness of yourself.
During counselling, I use Integrative Therapies including Transactional Analysis and the Gestalt model. I feel that these therapies have a lot to offer a client.
