Julie McCrae Accredited MBACP, MA
I am a passionate, accredited integrative psychotherapist. I believe that no one person is the same therefore my therapeutic approach will differ in order to meet each individual person where they are at in their life.
I offer a range of counselling services in the Cambridge area for children, adolescents and adults, providing therapeutic support in a safe environment to enable you to build sustainable skills and emotional resilience to live a better happier life.
Many young people struggle daily with issues around depression, anxiety, low self esteem and self identity. Some of these issues are the result of the young person experiencing life events such as divorce, trauma and loss, struggling to find their place in the world. I believe that early therapeutic intervention is key to help young people succeed. By providing a safe environment for the young person to process their feelings through talking, creative work and play, this helps build confidence and self esteem, enabling young people to learn coping skills to be able to regulate their emotions which will provide emotional resilience and help children and families thrive.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 13 years experience working mostly with children, teenagers, young adults and their families. I have extensive knowledge in play therapy, person centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy. I will integrate different modalities and techniques in my sessions which can include talking, play, art and music.
Education and Experience
I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London.I obtained my Bachelor’s of Social Science(Psychology) Degree from the University of Natal Durban, South Africa. I have a level 1 DBT certificate.
