Julie Ovett, Dip Counselling,MBACP(Accred), AIP, GCIPD,
Hi my name is Julie Ovett, I run a friendly and confidential counselling service in Lower Parkstone, Poole. 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
