Juliet has a waiting list for therapy which is very long! Actually, she has two waiting lists. The LONG one and the SHORT one.
Part of the reason for this is because she prioritises people who attend her Pesso Boyden System Psychotherapy (PBSP) Personal Development year long experiential groups, or PBSP Residential Workshops. Juliet is such a strong believer in the efficacy of PBSP that she feels she can be most effective as a couple therapist, when people are doing their own individual work through PBSP alongside their couple therapy.
This is because so much of the ‘trouble’ in our relationship has its roots in our childhood. For example, the man who found his wife controlling realised in a PBSP session that his mother had been controlling. During a report back session 2 months later, he said (with a smile on his face, realising the irony of what he was saying), “My wife has completely changed. I no longer find her controlling! In fact she changed overnight, about 2 months ago!” Another example is the woman who arrived in a PBSP session saying her husband was aggressive, who found that the root was her violent father. Her husband had a loud voice, but he didn’t often shout and was very rarely truly aggressive. She however, because of her childhood was terrified of all anger and conflict. Over time, doing PBSP sessions, she found her tolerance for her husband’s loud voice increased, and she realised that she had been over-sensitised to aggression by her father’s violence. Now, the signs that what she had previously labelled as aggression she labelled as passion, and no longer found him threatening.
So those people doing Pesso Boyden groups with Juliet will be put onto the SHORT list, and those people who don’t wish to attend a pesso group will be on the LONG list.
Juliet is dedicated to helping couples improve, and thinks the two-pronged approach of couples therapy alongside attending a PBSP group is the quickest, most effective and lasting way to make the necessary changes to the relationship.
SHORT waiting list
We call this the ‘short’ waiting list because it is shorter than the long waiting list. However it may still be about 18 months before Juliet has a slot available. Please contact Juliet on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out roughly how long she thinks the waiting list will be. People who attend a Pesso Boyden (PBSP) group, and have three structures during the course of a year, are invited to join the short waiting list.
LONG waiting list
This is for people who do not wish to join a Pesso Boyden Group, but would like either one to one work with Juliet. At present this is well over 2 years.
