Julia Scott, Registered MBACP, MNCS (Accredited)
Are you struggling to cope with overwhelming emotions? Feeling low and lacking in motivation? Stuck in patterns of thinking, behaving and relating that you feel powerless to change?
I have 15 years' experience of working successfully with a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, low self-esteem, anger management, grief and loss, relationship issues, self-harm and the impact of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. I have a special interest in working with trauma (both complex and single event), and have trained in EMDR, Somatic Trauma Therapy and the Rewind Technique.
I am a BACP Registered and NCS Accredited counsellor working from premises in Filton, Bristol and Worle, Weston-super-Mare. I offer short-term counselling and longer term therapy to men and women aged 18 and over. Whether your difficulties are long-standing or you feel you could just do with some support to get through a difficult time, it is likely I can help.
My role as a counsellor is to provide you with a confidential, non-judgmental space in which you can come to understand yourself and your feelings more deeply, and in which new perspectives and new possibilities for change can emerge. I won't give advice, but will facilitate your self-exploration, change and growth. You won’t ever be told what to do or be pressurised into making changes you don’t want to make, but you will be challenged to consider new and more empowering ways of thinking and behaving, which can lead to constructive changes and/or a greater acceptance of how things are.
Please note that I am not currently taking on new face to face clients, but will be working by Zoom and Phone until the Coronavirus crisis has passed.
