Julie Hamilton, PgDip Couns; Dip Psych; MBACP (Registered)
I offer Person-Centred Counselling. This type of counselling is a good fit for me and my personality and after our first session together you may find that it’s a good fit for you too. I have years of counselling experience; and this together with personal growth, a passion for counselling and a trust in the relationship; I would like to start this journey with you and keep pace with you, wherever it may lead us.
If you are considering coming in to see me for counselling then I would be happy to hear from you. You could either email me or send me a text message and I will come back to you. Together we could arrange a suitable day and time to meet. Come as you are with what you are currently carrying; there is no need to feel that you should have a story from beginning to end … we can look at the reason you came in together and take it from there. I offer a safe space where privacy and confidentiality are treated with respect. I look forward to hearing from you.
An explanation of Person-Centred Therapy from the BACP Website:
Devised by Carl Rogers and also called "Client-Centred" or "Rogerian" counselling, this is based on the assumption that a client seeking help in the resolution of a problem they are experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to freely express any emotions and feelings. This will enable the client to come to terms with negative feelings, which may have caused emotional problems, and develop inner resources. The objective is for the client to become able to see himself as a person, with the power and freedom to change, rather than as an object.
