Julie Haworth, MA, Counsellor & Psychotherapist, MBACP (Reg.)
I am an experienced BACP Registered Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist, based in Manchester and Cheshire providing individual counselling and psychotherapy. I have worked in various NHS settings, and continue to work part-time as an NHS counsellor in Manchester.
My main areas of interest are anxiety and depression and mood disorders; bereavement, grief and loss; childhood bullying; complex trauma; domestic abuse; childhood sexual abuse; historic sexual abuse; low self confidence; identity; post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); stress and work-related stress.
My counselling practice integrates a number of theoretical models. I aim to help people develop their experiences meaningfully. I work by building a therapeutic relationship grounded in courage, creativity, warmth, compassion, and honesty. You will be encouraged to trust in your intuitive ability and together, we will work through the issues bringing you to therapy, building your confidence to make the changes you want to make.
If you've never been in counselling or psychotherapy, it can be hard to believe that talking can be helpful. But if you’re depressed and feeling bad about yourself, you can be helped profoundly by an in-depth conversation in which you come to trust, understand and respect yourself. If your emotions are confusing, talking about them can bring clarity. Talking about your stress and anxiety is a first step toward making it manageable.
When you give yourself time and space to be heard, and when someone truly listens, talking can help you feel connected, valued, whole, and respected.

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.
