Julie Furlow MBACP Reg - Broadview Counselling
A little bit about me, my name is Julie Furlow and I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor, offering counselling and psychotherapy. I have been practicing for over 13 years, and am a Registered member of BACP, which means I have met and maintained the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy's required standards of professional training and experience, and that I adhere to their Ethical Framework.
I undertake a continuous programme of training's to add to my theoretical knowledge, and which also keeps me up to date with any changes in current thinking.
I am qualified to work with adolescents, and adults all which present with a wide range of problems, anger, anxiety, abuse, eating disorders, sexuality and terminal illnesses, to name a few.
I have been involved with IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies), and have undertaken short term solution focused work with their client base. I am also qualified to work with Dementia patients and their partners/carers.
At Broadview counselling I aim to offer you a safe and confidential environment in which you can explore what is troubling you. I fully believe and practice that the counselling relationship is first and foremost, built on trust, and not judgement.
Depending on your needs I am able to offer short term or long term work, whereby we will meet on a weekly basis.

Along with this I have attended numerous CPD days and conferences in order to add to my portfolio and experience.
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.

Emotional distress can occur at any times in our lives and talking with friends or family is not always enough. It may be then that you might seek professional help. It takes a lot of courage to take that first step. Counselling is a process which happens when a client and counsellor meet on a regular weekly basis in order to explore emotional and stressful feelings together. By looking and talking about these it can help you see things more clearly and with a different perspective, thus enabling change.
