Are you an adult/young person feeling under pressure, overwhelmed, depressed and struggling with studies, relationships or family life? Feeling anxious about going into work/school? Are you wanting to make changes in the way you react and feel towards people or situations in your life but don't know how to? Together we can explore how best to move forward.
Hi I'm Julie and I offer adults and young people (13+) the opportunity to discuss their anxieties with someone who cares and respects their feelings. I can offer you a confidential, calm and accepting space in which to explore what is troubling you. I will support and work with you - enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of current circumstances or past experiences, which feel unresolved and impact emotionally and physically on your day-to-day life. My hope is that you will feel listened to and understood, empowering you to make healthy changes in your life and enabling you to move forward and thrive.

I work with adult men and women of all ages anywhere in the UK offering online video and telephone counselling. Quite a lot of us, at some stage in our lives, have been in a situation where we have nobody around us we can talk to. Even though you may have family and friends who care about you, you can still feel alone and isolated or feel that you do not want to ‘bother’ or ‘burden’ them with your feelings.

Hello and thank you for pausing to read my profile. Life can sometimes bring challenges and we find the usual methods of coping no longer work for us. This can lead to feeling anxious, fatigued or unable to do the things that are important to us. Finding a counsellor who is right for you can be a stepping stone towards discovering choices and making changes. As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, my approach is rooted in the belief that each person has potential and I offer a welcoming space, where we can explore areas of concern at a pace that suits you, paying attention to your needs and aspirations.

I am a relational integrative therapist. This means that you and I work in partnership to navigate a way to support you to face whichever challenges you would like to overcome. Sometimes this can be achieved through short-term work (up to 12 weeks) and sometimes a contract for much longer work will be what you need. The development of relationship between me (the therapist), and you (the client) is the driving force of how I work. Through the development of a trusted alliance we can begin to explore any vulnerabilities you bring safely in order to make sense of them together.

Known as Jane Peacock, my trauma informed practice is rooted in the person centred approach, it is non-pathologising and non-judgemental with a belief that it is not what is wrong with a person, it is about what has happened to a person. The sense of connection from human to human is fundamental to all our needs and I endeavour to provide a therapeutic relationship in this space with you, where you are able to feel therapeutically held, heard and validated. Such a relationship would provide a space of compassionate acceptance and allow us to explore those feelings in you which are so hard to access or experience in everyday life.

It can be a great relief to be able to share your worries and stress with someone. We all struggle at times and as much as we would like to talk to our friends or family we feel unable to let them in. Sometimes we feel stuck, alone and not able to find the solution to the problem that's making us unhappy. Being able to talk openly with someone who can support you, without judgement, as you explore your feelings and the circumstances that are causing you stress can make a big difference. You will start to feel in control, see things more clearly and feel more confident to make the changes you want to in your life.

Depression Counsellors

What is the goal of therapy for depression?

Therapy for depression has several major goals. One is to relieve the mental pain of depression, which distorts feeling and thinking so that sufferers cannot see beyond their current state of mind or envision feeling better. Another is to give people the mental tools to recognise and correct the kinds of distorted thinking that turn a problem into a catastrophe and lead to despair. Therapy also teaches people how to process negative emotions in constructive ways, so they have more control over their own emotional reactivity. And it helps people regain the ability to see themselves positively, the motivation to do things, and the capacity for pleasure.

What happens in therapy for depression?

Perhaps most important, no matter the type of therapy, patients form an alliance with the therapist; that connection is therapeutic in itself, plus it becomes an instrument of change. Patients learn to identify and to challenge their own erroneous beliefs and thoughts that amplify the effects of negative experiences. They learn to identify situations in which they are especially vulnerable. And they learn new patterns of thinking and behaving. They may be given “homework” assignments in which they practice their developing skills. In addition, good therapists regularly monitor patients to assess whether and how much the condition is improving.

What therapy types help with depression?

Several types of short-term therapy have been found effective, each targeting one or more areas of dysfunction. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) helps clients challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs, learn new behavioral strategies, and curb reactivity to distressing situations. Behavioural activation (BA) is a form of therapy often used in conjunction with CBT; it focuses on engagement in rewarding activity as a pathway to changing negative feelings and disturbed mood. Another widely used approach is interpersonal therapy (IPT), which targets the social difficulties that both give rise to and get exacerbated by depression. Therapists may combine approaches as needed.

Can therapy for depression be done online?

Studies have found that online therapy can be highly effective for treating depression, although it may be more challenging to build a good therapist-patient alliance on screen than in person—at least at first. However, online therapy can offer considerable advantages. Accessibility and convenience are tops among them. Some people actually find it easier to talk about problems online than in person. While online therapy typically limits visibility of facial expression and body gestures that give important nonverbal cues to a patient’s state of mind, it can give therapists a glimpse into a patient’s world and life, providing information that can be highly useful in guiding therapy.

How effective is therapy for depression?

Many studies show that therapy is highly effective provided that patients complete the prescribed course of therapy, commonly 16 to 20 sessions. Over the long term, it is more effective than medication and the effects are more enduring. As a result, psychotherapy has the power not just to relieve current suffering but to prevent future episodes of the disorder. Therapy reverses the dysfunction in neural circuitry that disposes individuals to a negative view of themselves, the world, and their future and they acquire coping techniques, problem-solving skills, and understanding of their own vulnerabilities that are useful over the course of a lifetime.
