Julie Haworth, PGCert (Education), MA (Integrative Psychotherapy)
What I do
Counselling is a personal journey during which I will guide you to explore safely the emotional difficulties with which you struggle. I treat people who present with a wide range of presentations such as relationship problems, low self esteem and complex child trauma. I help people who feel depressed and anxious to find new ways to live more joyfully, and to develop a more comfortable relationship with themselves and others.
My main areas of interest are anxiety, 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 technique integrates a number of theoretical models which enable us to develop a personalised approach tailored to your particular needs I aim to help people develop a sense of inner freedom, interpret their experiences meaningfully and use these experiences to build confidence in themselves and their future.
How you might be experiencing your life
Do you experience an internal negative dialogue that causes you distress? You may feel it is impossible to get out of this cycle leading to exhaustion, confusion and a sense of feeling weighed down by your life. Feeling hopeless and stuck can create a longing to be understood. This is where counselling can help. Talking therapies including counselling can provide a respectful, safe and nurturing environment in which to discover your identity helping you to move forward with new understanding and positivity.
If you haven’t worked with a counsellor or psychotherapist before, it can be hard to believe that talking can be helpful. As we build shared understanding of your feelings and thoughts through an in-depth conversation, I will help you develop renewed trust and respect for yourself. Where your emotions cause confusion, our conversations aim to bring you clarity. These simple steps represent the start of a journey towards making your life more manageable.
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 which brought you to therapy, building your confidence to make the changes you want to make.
When you give yourself time and a confidential space to be heard, and when someone truly listens, talking can help you feel connected, valued, whole, and respected as an individual.

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.
