Juliet Russell-Roberts - MBACP, PG Dip
I am a transpersonal integrative psychotherapist. The word integrative means that I draw upon multiple modalities in order to best suit the individual’s needs – from psychodynamic, to humanistic, to existential – whilst setting this all within the transpersonal framework which views the individual’s development against the backdrop of their spiritual unfolding.
Transpersonal psychotherapy addresses all facets of the human experience, including mind, body and spirit. It aims to help individuals get back in touch with their true nature and to reach their full potential in life.
Whilst primarily a talking therapy, I may draw upon a variety of transpersonal therapy techniques in my work such as meditation, visualisations, guided dreamwork and creative expression through writing or art. My aim is to help individuals reconnect with their inner core – or inner divinity – and to empower them to take control of their lives.
I also practice as a Kundalini Yoga teacher and Shamanic Healer and where appropriate and desired may incorporate these techniques in my sessions. Kundalini Yoga is a powerful practice combining breath work, postures, meditation and mantra to bring balance to mind, body and spirit. Shamanic Healing is an energy healing practice, drawing on and channelling natural healing energy to release blockages and bring balance to the individual. Sometimes, where talking fails, or deep-seated unconscious blocks exist, energy practices can get straight to the root of an issue and offer rapid transformation.
I offer private sessions in Reading, Newbury and Aldermaston, as well as online via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime. I usually suggest a free initial phone conversation to determine the best way forward and can be reached on 07980 042 319 or via email.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
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).
