Julie Lovett, AdDip, (MBACP)
23 Southill Cottages
Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a practising counsellor in the Cullompton and Tiverton area. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment, giving you the time and space to explore and discuss those issues which are troubling you. During your sessions you will be free to explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of rejection or criticism and help to accept what cannot be changed with honesty and empathy.
I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time. I aim to enable you to help you enhance your life and to live it more fully. I am a Mental Health Champion for schools and my specialisms are working with children, young people, parents or carers and the bereaved.
I am experienced in helping clients who are going through difficulties with stress, relationships, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, feeling suicidal or self-harming, suffering through grief when someone has died or gone away, feeling lonely, having problems with drugs or alcohol, low self-esteem or confidence and sexuality and gender.
My practice is within easy reach of Cullompton, Tiverton, Honiton, Taunton and Exeter

My specialisms are working with the bereaved and with children and young people. I have twenty five years experience of working with children, young people and adults in a variety of settings.

I work at home in Kentisbeare, Cullompton from my heated garden room (above). Parking is available. My contact details are 07547 563577 or you can text or email me. My working hours are from 5pm on Monday to Wednesday, Thursday and Friday all day and Saturday mornings from 9am.
I don’t charge for our first session as I feel it is important that we both feel able to work together. Subsequent sessions are £40 an hour and will continue until we both feel our contract is finished and you are ready to move on.
Should you need to cancel your appointment, please try to provide 24 hours notice as this will enable me to offer your appointment to another client. I reserve the right to charge clients a small fee if they fail to keep an appointment without 24 hours notice.
