Welcome to Julia Jakeman Counselling
One-to-one online counselling.
Face to face sessions in Nottingham.
Hi, my name is Julia and thank you for taking the time to learn a little about what I can offer you. I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor with a MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from Staffordshire University and a member of the UKCP (UK Council of Psychotherapy), BACP(British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), AP (Addiction Professionals) and NCS (National Counselling Society).
I have worked in the fields of addiction rehabilitation and eating disorders and have also volunteered for many years on crisis helplines. I also have lived experience of problematic alcohol consumption, stress and anxiety and recognise what it feels like to be a woman getting older in Western society.
I approach therapy from a humanistic and relational stance believing that we always have the capacity to change and grow in positive ways. I believe that the way we cope in our present-day lives is influenced by our past experiences and that going back into our childhood and examining that experience we may find clues as to where many of our coping mechanisms originate. When we become aware of this it gives us the opportunity to change these ways and find healthier, kinder ways of treating ourselves in our present day lives.
My therapy room is a warm and welcoming space where we can build a trusting and respectful therapeutic relationship where there is no judgement on what you bring to the room. Whatever you are struggling with together we can find a path that feels the right fit for you and takes as long as you need it to whether that is single session, short term (6 sessions) or longer-term work. I will utilise my understanding of different therapeutic approaches to find the best path for each you.
I offer therapy Face-to-Face in Sherwood, Nottingham or via Zoom or telephone and the sessions are one hour long. The initial assessment session is charged at £45 with all subsequent sessions being £60. I am DBS checked and fully insured to work across the world, with the exception of the USA and Canada. I work weekdays and evenings and have some availability at weekends. I have on-site parking but due to the age of the building disability access is compromised. Although my room is on the ground floor, there are steps up to the entrance.
Your initial consultation is at a reduced fee
It is important that we feel comfortable with one another, and that you feel you will be able to benefit from our relationship. This consultation time also gives me a chance to decide whether I can help you with the issues and concerns you are experiencing.
