Juliet Davies MSc, MBACP (Accred)
I'm an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist registered and accredited with British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy, (BACP).
Previously, my career was in media as a TV & Film Production Manager and I have an understanding of the dynamics of working freelance and for large corporate institutions
Since then I’ve worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist in several hospitals and Psychotherapy Units, (chronic illness, mental health and forensic services), in education (universities) and the third sector at Childline (children and young people) and Covid Speakeasy (bereavement)
With experience in various NHS settings, I regularly work with Medics, Clinicians and Allied Health Professionals in this private practice
Since March 2020, I’ve been providing online therapeutic groups by facilitating bereavement support at Covid Speakeasy and ongoing emotional support groups for clinically extremely vulnerable NHS patients that are shielding
How I work
Sometimes it may feel awkward or burdensome to share what we are really thinking and feeling with our family and friends. Talking with an experienced Therapist outside your social circle can be a valuable experience. Practising with robust professional and ethical standards I provide a confidential space where worries and concerns are listened to non-judgementally, accepted and understood
As well as training in several therapeutic modalities, my core training is Psychodynamic that takes a relational approach. It focuses on what is happening in the here and now, as well as patterns from the past, that may be impacting on your current relationships. Therapy is a collaborative effort where we explore your worries and concerns to understand and find meaning so you can develop and move forward with your life and relationships
How I can help
Commonly, clients bring the impact that significant life events are having and some of these may include, bereavement and loss, chronic disease, marriage and separation or divorce, becoming a new parent or parenting difficulties, family dynamics or a career decision or transition
You may already have a diagnosis of anxiety or depression or perhaps you can't identify a cause or trigger and are struggling with uncertainty and worry about the future. You may be experiencing feelings of sadness, emptiness or low self worth
Our initial appointment provides us with an opportunity to explore what has brought you and discuss expectations or concerns you have about therapy. If we think we can work together we arrange to meet once a week for a series of sessions by video link using Zoom Pro

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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
