Julie Barker MBACP accred
Welcome to my profile, I hope you will find it useful in making your choices. I am a Person Centered Counsellor [BACP accred] and Supervisor.
I see clients primarily in a private and peaceful space attached to my home but with its own entrance. I am able to consider home visits, but this may incur a travelling fee.
My aim is to provide a safe, confidential space for clients to explore and express feelings and gain insight and understanding. I am not there to judge, advise or direct but endeavour to help you access your resources, by offering a supportive and therapeutic relationship.

It is important that the time is right for you and that you have a clear understanding of what is being offered.
Should you wish, a consultation can be arranged to help you in your decision.
I value the work I do with student counsellors and welcome enquiries about course requirements in relation to personal therapy, for which I offer a reduced fee or supervision (details of which are available in the supervision profile linked to this).
