What are your qualifications, training and experience?
My training is at Level 7 (Masters degree) and lasted five years. I have some training in managing trauma, including traumatic bereavement and cPTSD, but I am not a PTSD specialist. I have undertaken 80 hours training in delivering therapy online. This training is enhanced through other specialist training and continuous professional development (CPD). Please see more at About Juline.
What issues can you help with?
I am happy to help with most issues. We will be able to discuss this fully at the first session. More details on specific issues and a fuller list can be found lower down on this page.
Where will we meet?
I work as a private practitioner at two counselling centres in central London. I am based in Bloomsbury in London WC1A. I also work at another centre with full disability access. This is near to Kings Cross and St. Pancras stations and also within walking distance from Camden High Street. I also work online.
What is your availability?
My working hours are as as follows.
Face to face sessions – Monday to Thursday, afternoons & evenings until 21:00 (9pm). If we cannot find a mutually agreeable time, I can sometimes offer an appointment on Fridays for a few weeks until something suitable becomes available.
How much do you charge?
Fees are charged on the basis of a weekly, 50-minute session as follows:
– Face to face therapy (Bloomsbury) – £75 per session
– Face to face therapy (Kings Cross / Camden) – £60 per session
– Online therapy – £60 per session.*
* This applies only where the initial agreement is for online therapy. Where we have an agreement for face to face therapy, the usual fee is payable so that the room can be retained for use when we return after the COVID-19 lock-down.
If you are not sure about wanting therapy or want to find out more, please ask for one of the following:
- A FREE twenty minute consultation by telephone
- A face to face Introductory Session (Bloomsbury £40, Kings Cross £30)
This will give you the chance to talk about what you would like from therapy and/or get the feel of what it is like to have a session at the venue you choose.
How long does therapy last?
Counselling can be short or long term. It can be open-ended if you are not sure how long you will need (which is quite usual). We can discuss your needs when we first meet or in a telephone consultation beforehand. Ultimately, you decide how long therapy lasts.
Do you have a policy on confidentiality?
Yes. In counselling and psychotherapy, confidentiality is vital to the therapeutic relationship. I will give you a copy of my Confidentiality and Disclosure Policy and explain it to you when you are considering entering therapy with me. The Policy also sets out the limited circumstances in which I may disclose your personal information to another person.
Do you have a Privacy Notice and a Cookies Policy?
Yes. These cover how I handle your personal information in therapy and when you access my website. You can view them on my Privacy Notice page.
Are the venues wheelchair accessible and suitable if I have mobility issues?
The Kings Cross/Camden venue is wheelchair accessible. There is a lift between reception, counselling rooms and other facilities. If you decide at the first session that access isn’t adequate, I will not charge you for the session. The Bloomsbury venue is a listed building and has not been adapted. The waiting room and counselling room are upstairs and access is unsuitable for people with severe mobility problems.
Do you provide counselling on sexuality and gender identity issues?
Yes. Please see my separate page for details of my approach and ethical framework.
Do you provide counselling for survivors of abuse, neglect or trauma in childhood?
Yes, this is one of my main interests. Please see also: Abuse in childhood
Do you provide counselling for adoption issues?
Please see my blog post on this issue.
Do you make a diagnosis?
As a psychotherapist, I do not make a medical diagnosis such as “depression”, “personality disorder” or “being on the autistic spectrum”. Instead, I work more with what you are experiencing in your life, for example feeling depressed or anxious, mood swings, difficulty with managing your emotions or difficulty relating to people or situations. I am also happy to talk about your feelings about a diagnosis you have received or how you feel about getting one if you haven’t already.
More examples of issues I deal with are listed below.
