Hi my name is Julie and I am a qualified Adult and Young Person's Counsellor. I am trained as an Integrative counsellor and use creative strategies such as mindfulness, art and imagery to help support my work. I have had lots of experience in dealing with mental health issues, parenting concerns, relationship worries and teenage angst. But most of all - I am human, and as a human being, what I value most is 'connection', finding that person you connect with makes all the difference to your counselling journey. Take the first step and give me a call or message me, I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is working with adults, parents and families in schools and family centres around Gloucestershire. I am a qualified adult education teacher and family learning practitioner. Much of my work was based around providing support and guidance. I embarked on my counselling training 4 years ago and completed my placement with Listening Post in Cheltenham where I still work as a qualified counsellor. After completing my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling I worked with 'Teens in Crisis' for 6 months and completed my Level 5 Children and Young People Counselling qualification. I now run a small practice as well as provide counselling and assessing for Listening Post Cheltenham. I am a full member of the BACP.
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.
