Julie Andrews - BACP Accredited Counsellor
Hello, thank you for checking out my page entry.
I am an experienced BACP accredited therapist - Registered MBACP (Accred).
I qualified in 1993 and I love my job. That's 27 years!
I'm a warm, friendly, and highly experienced therapist in and around London. Today’s hectic world can weigh us down with stresses, strains and anxiety – whether it’s family issues, workplace difficulties or ill-health, it can often be hard to cope.You may have seen your GP who has told you that you have generalised anxiety disorder, or you may be totally fed up with yourself. I enable people of all ages to get through those tough times, and equip them to face and effectively manage those issues in the future too.
I believe that everyone can benefit from a session of counselling.
Please feel free to give me a call, this way we can have a quick chat and see if counselling might help.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Walking Therapy - 'walk and talk', its an amazing new idea to take counselling out of the counselling room. Allowing you to walk and be outside whilst talking about how you are feeling.
I am available to run groups to work with any issues you may be having, for example not communicating within your team.
I offer supervision to counsellors, therapists and anyone who works within the helping professions.

An assessment is the first thing to do, this lasts an hour price dependent on your income.

- I feel it is important for me to say that I work in an ethical way, that means confidential, my work is regularly assessed to make sure that I am working appropriately.
- As a person, I am open minded in-fact fairly unshockable.
- I love my job and I am always interested in how I can best support you psychologically.
- Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, there's never a silly question in my book.
