Juliana Monaghan BA(Hons) counselling MBACP
Hello my name is Juliana and I am here for you if you need someone to listen, understand and help when life feels overwhelming or difficult. Sometimes it can be hard to turn to family and friends whilst going through a difficult time because they can seem too close.
As a qualified counsellor I offer a safe, private space located in a secure quiet location where we can explore challenges, emotions or any struggles that have been thrown your way. You may be feeling anxious, unfulfilled, unhappy or struggling where you find yourself which we can work through together to develop your self acceptance and understanding to bring positive changes into your life.
My work covers a broad range of personal and work related issues that include bereavement, anxiety, depression, loss, relationship difficulties, anger, sexuality, long term illness and many more. I work on a one to one basis and according to what may suit your needs best. Therapy can either be short-term or long-term.
My consulting room is comfortable and discreet, ground floor room with free parking and wheelchair access. I am situated between Farnborough and Fleet and available for appointments during daytime and evening.
Finding a counsellor can sometimes feel a daunting process so I offer a half price counselling session of £25 that allows us to meet to discuss whether counselling is right for you. I will also gladly answer any questions by phone or email without any further obligation.
I also offer discounted sessions for NHS workers and the police service.
Training, qualifications & experience
FdSc Humanistic Counselling
BA (Hons) Humanistic counselling
NCFE Counselling Skills and Theory, Levels 1-3
As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy(BACP) I adhere to its Ethical Framework and attend regular supervision.
I have 7 years experience with helping clients with many challenges. Alongside my private practice I have previously worked as a volunteer counsellor at the Olive Branch in Winchester. This centre is a charity that supports 18+ onwards with mental health challenges, bereavement, terminal illness and family or relationship issues. This ongoing work has led me to develop a special interest in mental health and relationship issues.
I also work within the National Health Service which has provided me with 17 years of experience working with patients who have struggled with life changing illnesses, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss and loneliness. Also working alongside the clinical staff I have experienced the anxiety, stress and emotional challenges that they can face working within a clinical setting.
How I Work
I am a Humanistic Counsellor which means my approach is rooted in the 'Here and Now' of how we live our life. Past life experiences and relationships are explored in terms of the impact they have on the person. The sessions are client led, autonomous and allow for deep exploration with challenging emotions or feelings.
To support my work as a Humanistic counsellor I integrate Person- Centred therapy with Gestalt and Existential Philosophy which altogether strives to raise a deeper awareness and understanding of feelings, encourages personal responsibility and helps people to realise their full potential in life.
