Julie Hession MBACP (Accred)
With almost twenty years experience as an Integrative Counsellor I draw on a wide variety of approaches that are appropriate to the individual, working empathically in a time sensitive model believing a safe, supportive therapeutic relationship is paramount.
I work with people of all ages, from all walks of life and have experience of helping across a wide range of personal difficulties.
As well as working in private practice, I have worked in the NHS for over fifteen years both within GP surgeries and Occupational Health. I provide Clinical Supervision for other Counsellors and Health Care professionals. I provide Stress management training within the workplace and Mindfulness courses within the community.
I have an ongoing interest in the emotional upheaval during transitions and life stage development.
Counselling provides a space for you to reflect, away from the pressures of everyday life. I would hope to sensitively help you;
- Explore the way you think, feel and act in a respectful, accepting and non-judgemental way.
- Gain a clearer understanding of the problem and how it is affecting you.
- To find a new perspective on the situation that opens up choice and a way forward.
- Make appropriate changes in your life that offer greater freedom and personal development.
I am accredited with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work in accordance with their Code of Ethics.
It is important that you feel comfortable with the Counsellor that you chose to work with so please feel free to call and we can chat to see if what you are looking for and what I can offer match up.
