About Me

Kay Juviler Counsellor

I am a person-centred practitioner working in the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas. I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I have over 9 years of experience working with adults, and 5 years working with adolescents. Over my years in practice I have worked with a wide range of presenting issues including:

  • depression
  • loss & bereavement
  • anxiety and stress
  • relationship problems
  • eating disorders
  • self-harm
  • addiction
  • surviving emotional, sexual and physical abuse
  • suicidal thoughts
  • sexuality and identity
  • trauma

I am also part of the Gendered Intelligence Therapist and Counsellor Network and have experience and training in supporting gender diversity.

It is essential to me to offer a space that is welcoming to all, that affirms the identities of my clients and is founded on fair and impartial treatment of all clients in a respectful, empathic and loving space.

I offer a non-judgemental, safe and confidential environment in which, together, we can explore your feelings and help you better understand yourself in order to make positive changes in your life.

Counselling and psychotherapy can feel daunting, but please be reassured that I work in a way which respects each client’s individual needs and aspirations.
