Julie Bullen MBACP - New Leaf Counselling
I offer a calm and compassionate space for you to explore and process your thoughts and feelings. We all face times in our lives that are difficult such as a bereavement, relationship break up, job loss, traumatic event or feeling overwhelmed by the stresses of everyday life. It’s OK not to feel OK, but you don’t have to struggle alone.
How I can help you
I provide counselling to adults, including young people from 18 years.
Counselling allows you time to reflect on issues and find a way forward. My role is to support you through the process without judgement or telling you what to do. Some people have specific goals that they want to achieve from their counselling sessions, others arrive scared, confused, with no idea of what they want or what to do next. That’s fine, I treat each person individually and at a pace that suits you.
Whilst my training allows me to draw upon theories and approaches from psychotherapy, I also use my own life experience to understand and help clients. I can also provide you with tools to help you once you leave the therapy room, for example Mindfulness exercises to practice and incorporate into everyday life.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow the BACP codes of ethics and practice. All sessions are conducted in confidence.
Sessions are held in a pleasant room within the relaxing surrounds of Northern Therapy Centre. The centre is based in Northern Football Club, McCracken Park, just off the Great North Road and close to local bus services to Newcastle City Centre, Great Park, Cramlington, Blyth, Dinnington and Morpeth.
Free car parking is available on site.
To get the most out of counselling it is important to find the right counsellor for you. I am happy to answer any questions you may have or just have an initial introduction via phone, email or text.
I offer a reduced fee of £30 for the first session. The first session enables you to meet me and find out how I work. It enables me to find out more about you and how I can help you best. There is no obligation for you to continue if you feel it won't work.
If you want to book a session or find out more please get in touch via email, phone or text. I look forward to hearing from you.
