Julia Cox Registered MBACP. Counsellor & Mindfulness Practitioner
Choosing a suitable counsellor is a big decision; it is therefore important to find a therapist you feel able to talk openly with. I am an experienced and qualified counsellor offering one to one counselling with a caring, confidential, non judgemental approach.
My training is accredited by the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) of which I am a member. I adhere to their code of ethics and have regular supervision to ensure safe practice is maintained.
My role as a counsellor and commitment to continual professional development is something I am passionate about. I have gained experience of supporting adults and young people with a variety of issues in my role as a Private Practitioner and as a volunteer counsellor working for Place2be, CASY (Counselling for children and young adults) ISAS (Incest and sexual abuse survivors) and CRUSE Bereavement Care.
I am a qualified trainer and hold a Professional Qualification In The Therapeutic Use Of Mindfulness.
I use an integrative approach where the foundations of my work lie in Person-centred counselling. Therefore the work we do together will be led by you and your unique requirements.

Mindfulness involves both formal & informal practice. The formal practice requires giving yourself the gift of approximately 30 minutes each day to do some form of meditation. Initial meditation practice will last 5 minutes which will guide you gently into the art of Mindfulness.
However this leaves another twenty three and a half hours in the day and this is where the informal Mindfulness occurs as you draw on all your senses.
You are not your thoughts or opinions, your likes or dislikes. Once you are aware of them you no longer have to be imprisoned by them.
We all have the ability to change our brains for the better. Scientific Research indicates that with regular Mindfulness Practice there can be many physical & psychological improvements for:
Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Worry, Depression, Substance Abuse, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Insomnia, Regulation of Blood Pressure, Self Esteem, Relationshps, Sleep, Julia Cox 07470 023 617 or Juliacox1@hotmail.co.uk

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
