My name is Julie I have rooms in the centre of Wigan and Appleybridge near Wigan
It is very daunting to have counselling for the first time, just to find the building, walk -in and meet the counsellor, the most important thing is that you feel at ease and accepted and are able to talk with me openly, that you do not have the feeling you are being judged or bossed about, your worries trivialized or dismissed, for the counselling process to work you need to feel that you are being really listened to by a genuine person.Although I am person centered taught I work with a range of therapies and techniques, I respect that each client is an individual so I prefer to use an integrative approach tailored to the individual, their needs and situation etc. I feel I am a warm, non judgmental person and am able to help a client feel safe, valued and really listened to without fear of judgement
I have extensive experience working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. Clients who had suffered past trauma and issues that were now having an impact on their daily life. I have helped clients who have been subjected to abuse, both physical and mental. I have also had experience helping clients who have relationship issues such as divorce/separation .

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have an experience helping clients who have had difficulties in communication in their relationship, for instance one person being Neurotypical and the other person atypical (Aspergers) helping them in their realization of this and with this understanding ultimately moving forward to a happy relationship
Not available at the moment due to Covid 19
I have also researched in depth and attended seminars on different personality disorders. I understand how hard it can be for a person to overcome having been for instance the victim of narcissist abuse and manipulation. Having this knowledge I do not trivialize how difficult moving on can be. there are so many thoughts and scenarios that may have happened that as a client you could be finding it hard to come to terms with. Many people who have suffered from this type of abuse and other painful events understandingly can be very scared to confront their feeling and use avoidance tactics to stop the pain. I feel I can help a client come to their own realizations and resolve in a safe environment in their own time without being forced in any way, to enable them to live a happier more fulfilled life.
