Julia Hughes (MBACP) Ad. Dip
Online sessions available. While we are being asked to physically distance from each other support and connection is still important.
We can all experience times in our lives when we feel it would be beneficial to talk to someone, to help make sense of what we're going through.
Maybe you are experiencing a particularly difficult time, or perhaps counselling and therapy is something that you've been curious about.
My name is Julia and I offer counselling in Hackney, tailoring different types of therapy to meet your individual needs.
I offer a warm, calm space where together we can explore and try to make sense of what has brought you to counselling.
I believe that difficulties we are experiencing now can have their roots in the past. I think that therapy should be a place where previous experiences can be explored and understood, as well as focusing on what is affecting you in the here and now.
I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :
- Panic Attacks
- Self esteem
- Life limiting illness
- Depression, and
My East London practice is in Hackney within easy reach of the City, and to Dalston and Haggerston overground stations.

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

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).
