About me

Who am I?

Welcome. My name is Julie Mines and I am a fully qualified counsellor experienced in working with young people (16+) and adults.  I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work within the BACP Ethical Framework.

I believe counselling can help you to find a stronger sense of self, greater understanding and fresh perspective.

I have a FdSc in Counselling from the University of Gloucestershire and a Certificate of Pastoral Counselling Skills through Network Counselling.  I have also completed the Transactional Analysis 101 course.

My training has included a range of therapeutic approaches but at the heart of my counselling is a commitment to developing a relationship where you feel listened to, safe and accepted.

I am an integrative counsellor with a person-centred approach at the core of my therapy. I hope to provide a dedicated time for you where life struggles and questions can be explored and reflected on.

I have experience with a wide range of issues including bereavement, loss, self-esteem, sexual identity, relationship breakdown, depression, anxiety and addiction.

My life experience and working background is broad and diverse and over the past 15 years I have worked with different charities supporting people from all walks of life across many issues.

Where, What and How?

Finding the right counsellor can feel daunting. I offer a warm welcome and a calm presence in comfortable surroundings to help put you at ease. Our first appointment is about listening to you and why you have taken the step of coming to counselling. We will talk about how the counselling process works and if you are new to counselling it is an opportunity for you to ask questions and express concerns.

Counselling sessions can be focused and short-term or I can offer open-ended therapy where you can have as many sessions as you need and work at a pace that feels right for you.

I can offer daytime appointments in North-West Bristol which has easy access from junction 18 of the M5 and good public transport links. Evening sessions are held in Clevedon, N. Somerset.

I also have some availability for home visiting and I am also able to offer Skype and telephone counselling.
