Juliet Davies MSc MBACP
I have been practising as a Counsellor & Psychotherapist since 1994 and am a Senior Counsellor & Psychotherapist in the NHS. My experience has developed from working at various settings over the years such as, NHS Hospitals, Prisons and Forensic services, Universities and with children and young people at Childline.
**From September 2020 I will be offering online appointments only**
I am a British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) member, accredited with their voluntary professional register and adhere to their Ethical Framework.
Before training in this area, my previous career was in the arts and media so I have a good understanding of the stressors and tension clients may experience working within creative agencies and corporate institutions.
Therapy may be turned to for all sorts of reasons and can be helpful when difficulties may feel too awkward or burdensome to share with family or friends. In therapy, difficulties can be fully and freely explored non-judgementally, perhaps reducing the pressure to edit oneself in a confidential space.
Clients bring all sorts of issues they are struggling with and some common difficulties include;
- Anxiety; feeling uncertain, insecure and worrying about the future
- Depression; low mood, feelings of poor self-worth, emptiness, sadness, hopelessness
- Frustration and anger
- Relationship with partner, family dynamics
- Bereavement ; grief and loss
- Identity, sexuality
- Chronic health conditions
It may feel daunting taking that first step towards an initial appointment, but worth considering Counsellors & Psychotherapists that have an accredited BACP training will practise robustly with substantial experience and professionalism.
An initial consultation appointment provides us with an opportunity to explore what has brought you, your expectations or concerns about therapy with the aim of finding a focus going forward.
Sessions are offered weekly, or more frequently online via an agreed secure platform.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
