Julie Jeffs, Reg Psychotherapist & Couples Therapist
Psychotherapy Plymouth has been operating from Waterloo Well-being Centre since 2009 and The Crownhill Fort since 2013.
During the past nineteen years I have provided individual counselling, core process psychotherapy, couples counselling, MBCT and family therapy to hundreds of people from all walks of life.
I am highly skilled, experienced and work to a strict code of ethics. I have completed a high standard of professional training, fully insured and registered with the UKCP.
I aim to help you understand the areas of your life that are causing difficulty, gain relief from present symptoms and develop resources to cope better in the future.
The benefits of professional counselling and psychotherapy are known to include stress reduction, stability in mood and general well-being, personal insight, greater clarity and self acceptance, inner fulfilment and relationships.
The Waterloo Well-Being Centre has modern facilities proving a compassionate setting to ensure your experience is supportive and therapeutic.

I believe that all human beings have the capacity to reach their full potential regardless of upbringing, the culture of origin, gender, age and any other aspect of diversity.
I have have many years experience working with people with a wide range of mental health problems and have learned how each individual is unique and how different people may benefit from different approaches to tackling their difficulties.
My professional development as a therapist, trainer and supervisor have been informed by these values and this is reflected in my choices for my own training, supervision, and development.
I have training in various modalities of therapeutic work including person-centred counselling, core process psychotherapy, CBT, family and systemic practice, emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT), pre- and perinatal psychology and professional supervisor with CSTD.
During my career, I have gained experience working with people with eating disorders, people with experiences of severe abuse in childhood, people with terminal illness and with students as a counsellor at the University of Plymouth. I work with individuals, couples and families, I offer both long-term therapy and shorter term therapy (for EAP programmes, for instance).
As a trainer, I have written and conducted counselling courses at diploma level and run courses in Mindfulness and Meditation. I am a qualified mindfulness teacher and part of the UK Teachers network for mindfulness-based teacher training organisations – click here
My early career was spent working as a manager for a large utility company, where I gained valuable business experience.
I am currently affiliated with BUPA, AXA PPP and Retail Trust.
Both my practices have been tastefully decorated, offer a sense of stillness, plenty of natural light and a warm welcome to clients.
