About Julie Slumbers MBACP (Reg.)
People usually come to therapy when they don’t know what else to do. They keep going around in circles and are unsure how to stop or do things differently.
There are so many things that prevent us from being able to be happy and sometimes nothing seems to make us feel better.
Therapy can help with pretty much any emotional or psychological issue.Some of the problems people struggle with are: relationship problems, anxiety, depression, addictions, OCD, domestic abuse, anger management…..but the list is very, very long!!!
There are lots of different types of counsellors and therapists, so it can be confusing knowing who is right for you. My advice is generally to go by instinct initially. If you like the look of someone and what they say about themselves, it is a good start; but don’t worry if when you meet them they don’t feel like a good fit. It can take time to find the right counsellor sometimes. The more comfortable you feel in the room the better the chance that therapy will work for you.
Therapy is not an exact science – no two clients are the same. It is for this reason that I do not offer time-limited sessions – I do not believe you can know how many sessions will be helpful on a first meeting regardless of what the issue is. This can be daunting for some clients as they want to know a) when they might start to feel differently and b) how much is this going to cost? If this is something that is important for you then I am probably not the right therapist for you! No judgement – there are many counsellors who will be happy or might prefer that type of work. It’s all about what works for you. Remember, it is you that decides when to end therapy.
I work with the majority of problems and if you would like to contact me to see if I might be able to help you, feel free to either email or give me a call/text. (If you try to ring me, please bear in mind that my phone is often on silent; however if your number is not withheld I always call back.)
I work Monday to Friday and offer daytime and evening appointments, however evening sessions are very popular and fill up quickly. A first session costs only £30 to see if we would like to work together and subsequent sessions are £60
