Julie Best-Clark MBACP Reg, MA, Adv Dip Psych/Couns
The Forge Annexe
My aim is to bring together effective approaches incorporating a variety of therapeutic models such as relational therapy, humanistic, psychodynamic, attachment theory, person centred and neuroscience. This will also depend on your individual needs. My experience also covers body psychotherapy and energy work.
I offer both short and long term therapy and the length of therapy will depend upon the presenting issues and your wishes. I can also bring in a creative element by offering the use of drawing, sand tray and figures to help the unconscious mind uncover the hidden truths.
Is there a particular problem you would like to talk through and explore? This could be to do with a relationship, work related or a repeating pattern that you are aware of or has been pointed out to you.
There may be deep seated issues relating to your history and your sense of belonging such as with adoption.
Health problems and chronic pain may also be causing stress and anxiety and we can use techniques to aid with the healing process. I have researched a great deal around neuroscience and pain and how these issues affect the brain chemistry.
I believe the relationship between therapist and client to be very important where we explore issues together and with this I offer an empathic, supportive, safe and confidential space.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist following an Intensive 6 year Master’s degree course in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre in London.
I have been working with people therapeutically for 20 years both in private practice and for the NHS, covering a number of issues including bereavement, depression, anxiety, work related issues, relationship breakdown, addiction, trauma, abuse, chronic pain, adoption, domestic abuse and pre/post natal depression.
I have worked with all age groups including working in a children’s therapy centre.
I also worked for many years as a Reiki healer and teacher and the combination of both Psychotherapy and energy work lends itself to a very effective, holistic and lasting treatment.
My background started off with training to be a homeopath and naturopath whilst living overseas. I helped many people over the years with their health issues and it was during this time that I realised often people came to me to talk about what was going on in their lives, as a homeopathic consultation involves a vast amount of getting to the bottom of what is going on for a person. It was then I decided to train to be a psychotherapist to improve my understanding and delve deeper.
My experience also covers 12 years of working with women and children who have been affected by domestic abuse where I worked as a manager in a women’s centre and supervising a children’s therapeutic service.
