About me

Hello and thank you for visiting.

If you're reading this, you may be looking at taking the first steps towards counselling. Talking therapy is for anyone, whether you feel you're going through a bad time or experiencing emotional problems that you may find difficulty in resolving on your own. Many of us find it easier to cope after engaging in therapy, it's an investment in our wellbeing.

In Widnes and Bury I work as a psychotherapist, relationship therapist, psychosexual therapist, supervisor, coach and trainer, I see individuals, couples and polyamory clients who are experiencing anxiety, abuse, general anxiety disorder, low mood/depression, psychosexual issues, going through the menopause, family difficulties, grieving after a bereavement or loss of something significant, long term illness, redundancy, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

As a coach I work independently and corporately with clients who want to achieve their objectives personally or relating to the workplace, whether it's for promotion, managing self-esteem or working towards professional goals.  We're able to work together in helping you reach your potential and become more motivated and directional in your approach.

Because many of us, at some point in our life, experience feelings that conflict with and affect our behaviour we may disengage and perhaps become distressed and may also become unsure about our direction. It’s not always easy to talk about feelings and emotions but I will offer you a safe and confidential place where you can talk freely and without fear of judgement. Therapy is an opportunity to talk about your concerns and in a way which you may not be able to do with your friends or family. Working together it may be that you're able to identify and make the changes in your life and improve on your wellbeing.

Walk and talk therapy (weather/location permitting)

Online Counselling

I also offer phone and online therapy through, Zoom, WhatsApp, Teams, Skype or FaceTime.

Online counselling offers clients the ability to engage in therapy from the convenience and familiarity of their own space, somewhere where it's possible to feel safe, comfortable and not overheard. Online therapy can be helpful if you're disabled, work shifts, or have other full-time responsibilities that make it difficult to commit to regular on-going face to face sessions.

Please contact me by email (jd@juliedeluca.com) or phone (07968 485217) if you would like more information on this option.

In accordance with the BACP's guidelines for on-going professional development, I have regular supervision, both individually and also in a group.

Please telephone for further details and for an informal chat; if you feel you'd prefer to text or email, please do and I'll reply as soon as I am able to.

Member organisations

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.

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.
