About me

I am a Person-Centred counsellor who offers a warm, safe and supportive space for you to explore any emotional difficulties and issues that you may be experiencing right now. I believe counselling can be beneficial to everyone. I am open to working a wide range of issues and welcome clients from diverse backgrounds.

More information about me and how I work can be found on my website www.juliasavagecounselling.co.uk

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Level 5 Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling and a Level 4 Certificate in Substance Abuse.

I have worked extensively with interpersonal abuse and violence. I also have experience with working with loss, bereavement, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, anxiety, anger, relationship issues. In addition to my work with adults, I work in schools with primary school aged children, using play therapy. Regardless of  my prior experience, I am happy to work with whatever you will bring to me.

Member organisations


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.
