My name is Julia Fry and I offer individual psychotherapy / counselling sessions online via Zoom.

My counselling approach is humanistic / creative and I draw on person-centred theories from Carl Rogers and his daughter, Natalie Rogers, who built creative ways of working into her father’s talk-based therapy. I am trauma informed, drawing on a range of theories for parts-based work (Schwartz, Fisher), and body-based work (van der Kolk, Levine), with a self-compassion focus (Gilbert, Brach, Mate, Neff). My sessions are always client-led and I warmly accompany you to explore at your own pace and in your own ways in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

I am a counsellor with around two years experience and I have worked in both the public and private sectors. In the public sector I have worked with people with cancer at MacMillan, with women with complex trauma at Swan Women’s Centre, and with children with anxiety (neurodivergent and neurotypical) in a primary school at Place2Be. I have delivered creative group therapy, using Arts for the Blues guidelines (Aithal et al, 2023).

I also have over seven years experience of trauma informed coaching with people who are neurodivergent to accept themselves as worthy despite the messages of unworthiness coming from an ableist society.

I have experience working with the following areas:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • domestic violence
  • sexual violence
  • neurodivergence
  • hyper self-criticism
  • work performance
  • relationship issues
  • PTSD
  • cPTSD
  • trauma
  • psychedelic integration

I work with adults, children and young people of all races, genders, sexualities, abilities, etc. I am open to being gently challenged on any unconscious discrimination I might inadvertently commit, because I understand that discrimination comes from systemic oppression and that we all have hidden biases and assumptions connected with this. I am committed to ongoing work uncovering my hidden biases. I regularly use creative methods to self-reflect. I am a white, cisgender woman of fluid sexuality with self-diagnosed AuDHD (been awaiting assessment since September 2020). I regularly have clinical supervision, am fully insured and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
