Psychotherapy and Counselling in Finchley, North London
We are all on a journey through life. Me as well as you.
Sometimes curved balls are thrown at us. From time to time we catch them and throw them away, at other times they become heavy and complex and weigh us down.
For me, the question often is can we find another way of thinking, another way of looking at things, can we make changes that will help us to have a better quality of life and or less stress?
I am a believer in the idea that we can find solutions to a lot of our issues from within ourselves, it is often not the solution that is the issue, but whether we are asking the right questions? I do not have the answers for you, but perhaps you do for yourself.
Perhaps the answer to your questions may come from elsewhere - your higher self, the universe or the spiritual realms. I am not afraid to look at meditation and the spiritual essence in my work.
I journey alongside my clients and look to explore these things. It can be hard work and emotional, but the results can be life transforming.
Having worked within the corporate environment as a lawyer I now work within the NHS. This means that, unlike a lot of my counselling colleagues, I cannot offer weekly sessions at the same time each week. I can however be flexible and we can work together to find session times that work for both of us.
I have a lot of experience in working with people through times of change, young people (over 18), right through to retirees.
If this all sounds interesting to you, perhaps give me a call, or email me, and let us see whether we can work together.
You can see more information in respect of my work on the Counselling Directory website, and also on the it's good to talk counselling and psychotherapy website.
All counselling and psychotherapy sessions are by prior appointment.
I am also a reiki master / teacher.
You can see independent reviews, and ratings, of my work on my google page. I also set out below some comments that have been made by recent clients:
"Relief to be able to vocalize all inner feelings, especially those that have remained suppressed for many years".
"Coping mechanisms, and maybe a different way of looking at the world, and more importantly at looking at oneself, gently suggested".
"Altogether a very helpful, insightful experience at a very difficult time in my life".
"I was initially scared of therapy and the thought of opening up all past issues that I had buried was very daunting but I quickly realised with Juliusz I had nothing to worry about. I suffer with anxiety and depression and have met with 4 psychotherapists within the last 9 months, Juliusz was the only person I felt an instant warmth towards. I immediately felt comfortable discussing all issues including very sensitive subjects I had never discussed before. Juliusz has a vast understanding of mental health issues and offers a unique perception due to his clever, analytical ways of thinking and desire to help.
I spent just 6 sessions with Juliusz and feel we "moved mountains" in this very short space. I think its important to note that I stopped my sessions with Juliusz due to him not being "trained" in CBT and I had read CBT is very effective in helping those with anxiety/depression. I have since learnt that the journey in which Juliusz was taking me through with talk therapy aids the process of changing cognitive behaviour and what we were doing together was helping me more than working with a CBT therapist has.
My small time with Juliusz felt like a journey that we explored together and I never felt alone, his support has been invaluable."
There is nothing scary about seeing a psychotherapist or counsellor. See my blog on anxiety in the Metro.

Is there a difference between anxiety and stress?
Sex, and the role of sex in or outside of relationships is a big topic. How do we feel about sex within relationships, how do we feel about casual sex, how far do those feelings reflect how we feel about and see ourselves? How open are we to discussing sex with our partners and or our friends. 'Sex Therapy for the Modern World' is a recent podcast that I took part in, as an expert, to consider these and other topical issues.
