Juliet Davies MSc MBACP
I work within the NHS as a Senior Counsellor and Psychotherapist alongside my private practice in Clapham. I am an experienced therapist having worked in many different settings since 1995 including; several NHS hospitals, the prison service offering Dialectical Behaviour therapy (DBT), several Universities with staff and students and with children and young people at Childline.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy, (BACP) and accredited on their professional register. My practice rigorously follows their ‘Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and Professional Conduct Procedure’ and my MSc training is accredited by them.
Previously, I had a career within the media and have a good understanding of the stress clients often experience working within creative agencies and corporate institutions.
It may feel daunting taking that first step to make an initial appointment, but it is worth bearing in mind that counsellors and psychotherapists that have an accredited BACP training, are robust, experienced and professional in their confidential work with you.
Therapy can be turned to for all sorts of reasons and at times difficulties may feel too awkward or burdensome to discuss with family or friends. In therapy, difficulties can be fully and freely discussed confidentially and non-judgementally perhaps reducing feelings of embarrassment and the need to edit.
Clients bring all sorts of issues they are struggling with and some common issues and feelings brought 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 and loss
- Sexual identity
- Chronic long-term health conditions, disability
An initial consultation appointment provides us with an opportunity to explore in more detail what has brought you and what expectations or concerns you may have about therapy and how I work. We will specifically find a focus on what to work on if we decide to meet going forward. All sessions are one-to-one, weekly or more frequently and take place in a private consulting room at Clapham Common Clinic. This is conveniently located near excellent public transport links on Clapham High Street.
Unfortunately, there is no lift at the clinic and with several sets of stairs access is difficult for those with limited mobility. Please do contact me if this is the case.
