Julian 'Juline' Mauger - MA Oxon, MA Herts, MBACP
We all need help at times. Maybe you don't feel at peace or are in the middle of a crisis. Maybe you have have lost your way, or are not sure who you are. When we agree a counselling session, you can just show up as you are right now. Bring as much or as little as you want. Gently, we can start to make sense of it, so that you can feel better and move forward.
We can look together at whatever you are finding upsetting or difficult. That may be who you are as a person or feeling bad about yourself. It may be situations or relationships that are not working well. Perhaps you face anxiety, depression, anger or obsessions - or thoughts that worry you. You may be feeling nothing at all or are just not sure what is wrong. If there are past or childhood experiences which trouble you, we can explore how these affect you now. We do this at your own pace and only if you want to. Counselling can be short or long term
I provide low-cost counselling (meaning: no profit to me) for adults who were abused in childhood. If you experienced abuse in childhood, or currently experience dissociation or have identity issues, please also read the "Other Areas" section as you scroll down.
I have 30 years' experience working in counselling, mentoring and providing individual support. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, working in private practice in London, mostly with adults. I have specialist training to work with traumatic bereavement and an interest in working with people with childhood trauma or who dissociate.
Living and working with people facing difficulties has always been part of my life. I started by counselling employees in the City (London) who were having problems with lifestyle issues.
I have been a volunteer counsellor for a charity providing services for people who have lost a pregnancy, baby or child, including through miscarriage or termination; and people facing domestic abuse; and for another charity for people who have a lost a family member in a road crash or been traumatised themselves.
I have lived and worked with young offenders and people with addictions. I set up and ran an online support group for people with gender identity issues and have worked with services dealing with welfare rights, human rights violations, mental health problems and disabilities.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
If you have experienced abuse in childhood (sexual or otherwise), please let me know. I am happy to take on 1-2 more such clients at a reduced rate.
I have experience of working with people who:
- identify as transgender or are questioning their gender identity
- have multiple personalities or Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD)
- dissociate or have Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
I also enjoy helping people to find their own, very personal identity and place in the world, sometimes related to ethnicity, disability, gender or sexuality.
My fees vary by location (central London or St. Albans). Some lower cost sessions are available. Sessions last 50 minutes and are weekly at the same time each week.
I currently also provide some lower cost sessions for adults who:
- are still feeling the affects of being abused in childhood
- are or who have been involved in sex work
- have issues surrounding gender identity
