Ms. Juliet Davies MSc, MBACP (Accred)
I'm an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist registered and accredited with British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). Achieving BACP accreditation demonstrates I practice with considerable experience meeting high professional and ethical standards
My previous career was in the Media as a Film & Television Production Manager and I understand the pressure and stresses of working in creative and corporate organisations
My experience comes from; several NHS Hospitals and Psychotherapy Units, (chronic health, mental health, forensic services), Education, (Universities) and the Third sector, Childline, (children and young people) and Covid Speakeasy, (spouses or partners bereaved during the Covid pandemic)
How I work
My core training is Psychodynamic with subsequent trainings in several Cognitive Behaviour Therapies.
My psychological approach is relational and supportive with confidentiality and substantial experience
Sometimes, it may feel awkward sharing what we are really deeply thinking and feeling with our friends and family. Talking with a therapist that is outside your social circle, can be a valuable and liberating experience. Concerns you bring to therapy are non-judgementally listened to and reflected on. These are explored collaboratively to develop further understanding and find meaning. In our first appointment we identify a focus for the therapy scheduling regular reviews so we can track progress
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 health conditions, marriage and separation or divorce, becoming a new parent or parenting difficulties, family dynamics or a career decision or transitions concerning identity
You may be struggling with uncertainty and worry about the future and the impact the Covid pandemic has had on you
You may already have a diagnosis of anxiety or depression or perhaps you feel stuck and can't identify a cause or trigger. There may be feelings of sadness, lethargy, emptiness, hopelessness, poor self worth and low self confidence
An initial appointment provides us with an opportunity to look in depth at what has brought you and to discuss your expectations, concerns and questions about therapy. If we think we can work together the next step is to arrange to meet once a week for a series of online sessions 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.
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).
