Julia Summers MBACP - Friendly Professional Psychotherapist & Supervisor
Do you want to understand why you feel or behave the way you do? Do you feel like you want to change or improve something? Are you struggling with some difficult experience or trauma? Whatever has brought you to this point be assured that you will get a friendly welcome in a professional and relaxing environment. I offer a free consultation, just call, text or email me to arrange this.
I work with adults and young people in Wilmslow and online. My clients all have unique experiences, relationships and lives. Some people come to me knowing exactly what they want to work through or change, some feel confused and may not fully understand why they feel the way they do. I will be someone who will be there to help support you through this time and any change you want.
Together we use the sessions at your pace to work through things, you get the time and space you need. I wont make judgements about you and your life, I will listen to what you have to say and together we will work through the things that are important.
I have years of experience working with different complexities of problems and I work with people on a long or short term basis. Typically people come to me because they seek understanding, you may feel unable to cope without something in your life, trauma, change, anxiety, stress, depression, self destructive behaviours, addictions, relationship, trust or family problems, illness and health worries, feeling overwhelmed, struggling at work or with study, feeling unfulfilled, lost or sad etc.
I provide a discrete professional and confidential counselling service. If you have any concerns about confidentiality this can be discussed in a consultation.
If getting to an appointment is difficult I offer alternative convenient solutions which may suit you better such as telephone, Skype, FaceTime and email counselling. For some people this is helpful if they have family/work commitments, disabilities or have difficultly attending the practices for whatever reason.
I also offer group and individual support for organisations. I offer counselling to staff in small businesses who need support at work or during periods of sickness/absence. Providing counselling to your staff is tax deductible and can reduce staff absence, assist with those needing help to return to work or for staff in a consultation period. Please get in touch with your businesses individual requirements.

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.

Concessions offered for
Online Counselling - I offer counselling and psychotherapy online because it allows my clients to access my services even if they have a busy, challenging and/or unpredictable work/life. It is great for those working long hours who travel alot, for those with children who find getting time for themselves is difficult, for young people and for those who have difficulty leaving their homes. Working this way is just as effective as face to face counselling and some people like to combine working with me in this way with occasional face to face sessions if it is convenient.
