Hi my name is Julie Ovett, I run a friendly and confidential counselling service in Worthing, West Sussex. I work with adults, couples, young people and Families looking at a wide range of issues, including anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems, stress, anger, abuse,depression and trauma.
I became interested in counselling when nearly 20 years ago I was mentoring students with mental health difficulties. All my students were seeing counsellors so I felt I should find out more about it. I looked, loved it and the rest as they say is history

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
