About me

Maybe the journey isn't about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't really you, so you can be who you were meant to be all along.

Hello, I'm Juliet, a BACP accredited psychotherapist, with over 25 years experience in private practice.  I am based in the delightful village of Burton Village in East Yorkshire, where you are welcome to come for face-to-face in-person therapy, or althernatively we can speak over Zoom, FaceTime, or via the telephone.

I am committed to inspiring and empowering others and so enabling them to live life more fully.  I will welcome and work alongside you supporting and encouraging you to discover who you are and all you may become, helping you achieve your potential and find your personal style of being in the world.

Why now? - Each of our lives presents unique challenges – relationship difficulties, bereavements, life transitions, and chronic physical symptoms. Sometimes those challenges create feelings of frustration, anxiety, and sadness. We are all so busy doing and achieving that we lose touch with our inner rhythms.  At such times it is easy to forget that we all need some assistance in addressing these challenges, especially since they can often feel overwhelming, or at times even impossible, to deal with.  We all deserve to have support when we are struggling, and often it is specifically this support that allows change to occur.

How counselling can help - It can often be difficult to ask for help when we have a problem and entering therapy can feel very daunting. Counselling and psychotherapy can help on many levels, simply having someone truly witness your life can mean the difference between just feeling bogged down and stuck, and actually experiencing growth and seeing change take place. My hope is together we can make sense of what is happening in your life, giving you a feeling of greater resilience and choicefulness so you are better able to deal and cope with the ups and downs of life.

Choosing the right therapist -   Feeling that you can trust your therapist is very important and so I offer a free initial 30 minute consultation session to help assist you in deciding if my approach and style are the right fit for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 25 years experience in private practice, based in the delightful village of Burton Fleming in East Yorkshire.   I have certificates in Transpersonal psychotherapy and Family Therapy and a diploma in Life Coaching.  I studied process Work for 10 years and recently Gestalt psychotherapy.

I adhere to the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) 'Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy'.

As part of my ethics and standards and as a professional requirement, I meet regularly with supervisors to discuss aspects of my work.

I also have indemnity insurance cover and, as a professional requirement, have been CRB checked.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
