 "We cannot choose where we start out in life, but we may finish where we will" Tony Judt. 

 

"Isolation exists only in isolation, once shared it evaporates"  Irvin Yalom.

 

“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?”  Carl Rogers.

Julia Naish: online counsellor and psychotherapist, twenty-seven years' experience in counselling and psychotherapy. 

Counselling and psychotherapy online; the convenience and flexibility of working from wherever you are in the world. 

 

I am a UK-registered counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor, providing online counselling and psychotherapy to individuals (over 18) and couples, for UK residents and English speakers worldwide, whether resident or expat.  I use telephone and Skype, and I also provide face-to-face meetings in London.   Working together using the telephone or Skype offers flexibility and convenience as well as being able to be based anywhere in the world - more details on the "About online work" page.

 

 I have experience and training in working with many issues, including: 

  • relationships
  • anger
  • work and career
  • bereavement and loss
  • sexuality
  • self-esteem
  • depression
  • childhood-related issues
  • family issues
  • parenting and step-parenting
  • stress
  • anxiety 

In addition, clients may bring issues such as: 

  • transitions and crossroads, particularly at times of change
  • being in a crisis
  • having a sense of dissatisfaction with an aspect of their life
  •  work/life balance 

I also work with couples who may feel in crisis, or who want to deepen their relationship. Issues such as communication, negotiation, power, money, intimacy, fidelity, affairs, anger and sex can all benefit from being explored in the confidential environment of the therapy or counselling session. 

 

I am a recognised provider with BUPA, www.bupa.co.uk
