Julie Reeves MSc.Counselling, BSc.Psych. EMDR Therapist, MBACP (Accred) UKRCP,
I am an integrative counsellor and EMDR therapist with a private practice in Evesham. My aim as an integrative counsellor is to support you to achieve your goals in a way that best suits you. I offer a non-judgemental space and draw on a range of holistic therapies including: Person centred, Gestalt, Cognitive, Transactional Analysis, Psychosynthesis, Psychodynamic, Somatic trauma therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR, trauma therapy) and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning.
My work and own personal history has given me insight into many of the difficulties with which living confronts us; I am respectful of people's initiative for seeking solutions and know that each individual has the potential for their own growth. Having worked as a nurse for many years I have experience of supporting people with a wide range of psychological difficulties and I know people can be empowered to take charge of their own lives.
We often grow most through the challenges we meet in life and it is helpful to have professional support at times of crisis. Emotional pain sometimes feels overwhelming, too much to share with others and too heavy to hold alone. Counselling helps you to understand yourself better, explore options, make productive choices and grow in a positive direction.
My work as a counsellor has involved supporting people with a wide range of issues including Anxiety, Generalised anxiety Disorder, relationship issues, depression, abuse, trauma, stress, life threatening illness, HIV, relationship issues, low self confidence, low self esteem, bereavement, child related issues, family difficulties, childhood sexual abuse, anger management, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and eating disorders. I have experience of working with 5 organisations including the charitable sector and have completed further training in the area of trauma including rape and sexual abuse.
I am an EMDR therapist and can support people in the resolution of trauma, providing containment and management of pace to avoid re-traumatisation. Thus, placing trauma where it belongs...in the past.
I also offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy in conjunction with my Equine specialist. Set in beautiful countryside with plenty of space to be in touch with nature we provide a team approach and bespoke therapy for individuals, groups and young people. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is very helpful for a wide range of issues. We offer individual and group sessions for a wide range of issues including anxiety/depression, trauma including PTSD, weight difficulties, confidence building and communication skills. We also offer Continuing Professional Development workshops for those working in the mental health field. For further information about Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning please visit www.thefreedomcentre.info or contact us.
I am BACP accredited and work to the ethical guidelines of the BACP, EAGALA and the EMDR Association.
