Julie Carlisle Dip Counselling Therapy Registered MBACP
Hi, my name is Julie and I am a qualified counsellor, trained in Person Centred Therapy. I offer my counselling services to adults of all ages, young people, and children.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and I work within their extensive ethical framework.
I am passionate about working alongside people and being able to support them through difficult or distressing periods in their lives. As a counsellor, I count it a privilege that this is exactly what I get to do!
What is 'Counselling' and how can it help?
Counselling is a talking therapy that gives you the space to talk through personal difficulties, thoughts and feelings, in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.
Some of the more common issues that people may bring to counselling include relationship issues, bereavement, anxiety, depression, abuse, unresolved anger and anger management. These are just a few among many issues that clients have brought to me over the years.
Through my time as a counsellor, I have been invited into the world of many clients, each truly amazing and unique in their own way. I have shared with them in their deepest darkest of places, and celebrated with them in their joys and triumphs.
As a person centred counsellor, I believe that recognising the value in each client and offering them an environment free from judgement or opinion, is a truly freeing environment that makes it easier to talk openly and honestly. This freedom so often releases a fresh sense of perspective and a feeling of strength in their own ability to work, and grow through difficult experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
Throughout my time as a counsellor, I have gained experience working with adults, young people, and children, helping them through a wide range of issues.
I have previously worked in the voluntary sector as part of an organisation that offers counselling to adults, and another which works with children, taking counselling into schools (Place2Be)
Alongside my private practice, I currently work in schools counselling children who are struggling with varying issues such as low self esteem, worry and anxiety, bullying, anger issues, and self harm.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an initial FREE 30 minute consultation.
This can give us both an idea of how we may work together, and whether counselling feels right for you at this time.
Should you feel comfortable and ready to work together at this point, our following sessions will last for 1 hour (or 50 minutes for children) and cost £40.
I do offer concessionary rate for students, charging £30 per hour
