I have extensive experience of counselling adults of all ages - from late teens to those in their 80's. I offer a confidential space and friendly, non-judgemental support to help you gain insight into your issues and understand your feelings. I work with you at your own pace, to explore what options are right for you in order to resolve problems, improve your relationships or make other important changes in your life. Please visit my website at www.julietpearcecounselling.co.uk to find out more about me and my practice and read testimonials.
You do not have to be in crisis, or have experienced a major life event to benefit from counselling. People seek counselling for many reasons and these may include a major trauma or just a general feeling of ‘things not being right’. I have helped people with addiction, anxiety and stress, depression, relationship breakdown and bereavement, family or relationship difficulties, low self esteem, work related stress including bullying, major life changes and feeling unable to cope, and many other issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am accredited with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and registered with the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors. In addition to my private practice I currently work with several employee assistance programmes, delivering counselling to employees and their families.
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.

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.

Counselling Older Adults
My fees per session are £50 for individual counselling. I also offer a limited number of concessions for counselling students.
New clients are welcome at this difficult time.
To support you I am offering Skype or telephone counselling only for all clients until further notice.
I can offer both short and longer term therapy. You may already have an idea of what you want, but we can discuss this at the first appointment.
Our first appointment will focus on exploring what has brought you to counselling. You can discuss any questions or concerns you may have, and take time to decide whether counselling with me is right for you.
My purpose built counselling room is in a quiet location at my address in Churchdown. It has its own entrance with disabled access and offers you complete privacy. There is plenty of street parking and I am conveniently situated between Cheltenham and Gloucester and within easy reach of the Forest of Dean, Tewkesbury and Cirencester.
My practice is on the Cheltenham/Gloucester bus route no 97 & 98 (2 minutes walk) and no 94 bus (15 minutes walk).
