BACP Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist.
Hello my name is Julia and I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I have been practicing in Yorkshire for ten years. I currently work from a historic building close to Ripon.
Does it feel like life is getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from some time to explore your thoughts and feelings?
I provide one to one counselling for adult individuals in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and empathic way. My aim is to help you find a way through a difficult situation or period in your life, work at developing self awareness and promote personal growth. Therapy can give you insight and understanding into your feelings and actions leading to a greater understanding of yourself.
You decide on the changes you want to make, you won't be told what to do but you will have the space to consider your difficulties and their possible underlying causes and to develop your own innate resources to fulfil your potential to live in a satisfactory way.
I will encourage you to talk openly about your problems and to explore thoughts and feelings and we will work on identifying your patterns of thought. An important part of this process is the development of a trusting relationship between client and counsellor.
I also have experience in working with clients with the following difficulties:
- domestic Violence
- self Esteem Issues
- suicidal thoughts
I have a creative background and I welcome clients who feel they would like to express themselves through the media of drawing, painting or modelling. This can be particularly useful for clients who find it difficult to express themselves verbally and can provide a different way of communicating feelings.
