Julia McGarragh MBACP (Accred) - Welton Counselling Practice
Do you feel like you are going round in circles or you feel alone and need to talk to someone independent who you can trust? Counselling enables us to work things out in such a way that we can make any changes that are necessary and move forwards. We can start to make sense of things again. Being able to express strong feelings with someone who will listen without judgement, can help relieve worry and anxiety over issues such as relationships, bereavement, depression, low confidence and self-esteem, and any other health-related concerns. Counselling can help highlight areas where change may be needed in order to break unhelpful patterns.
I offer a safe, confidential and ethical counselling practice. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical guidelines and code of practice. I undertake regular, monthly counselling supervision to maintain good practice as per BACP requirements.

What will happen?
Getting started: Pick up the phone, contact us by e-mail or by using the contact form and we will get back to you as soon as we can to make an appointment for you to come in and discuss whether counselling can help - it usually can!
An initial counselling assessment will be carried out to determine the issues we will focus on and explore in more detail what counselling can offer. This can last for up to an hour.
Counselling sessions arranged following assessment will last 50 minutes. They will be the same time and day each week or sometimes if preferred can be fortnightly.
Confidentiality will be explained at assessment and it is only in extreme circumstances that a counsellor would ever have to break confidentiality.
Any questions that you have about how counselling works can be asked at any time or if you prefer, you can contact us and we will try to answer any questions you might have.
