Julie Bockling (MBACP) Accredited
I am an experienced, qualified and BACP Accredited Counsellor currently working with adults, children and young people. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential counselling relationship where your feelings, thoughts and emotions are at the centre of our work together. I am qualified to degree level in Person Centred Counselling which means that I concentrate on you as an individual and your needs however I draw on my knowledge of other therapeutic approaches to best suit the needs of my clients. Most importantly, I hope my down to earth yet professional approach will enable you to relax and to put you at ease which is particularly helpful when disclosing difficult life experiences.
I have worked for many years as a counsellor in a school setting which has given me the opportunity not only to work with young people on a wide range of issues such as anxiety, self-harm, depression, sexual health, sexuality, self-esteem, gender issues, bereavement, difficult relationships, family breakdown etc. but I also deliver play therapy sessions for primary age children as well as consultations with parents and carers. My experience also covers group work and training on a wide range of topics.
In addition, I also set up a counselling service for homeless and hidden homeless clients; covering all aspects of their life including issues such as suicide, depression, debt problems, divorce, loss, addiction and working towards making positive steps forward even when they believed all hope was gone.
I would be happy to talk with you about your counselling needs in further detail and I offer a free initial short consultation.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
