Julie Hogan BA (Hons) Registered MBACP (Accred) Individual & Couples Therapist
East Cornwall Counselling
I understand talking to someone about personal and painful issues may seem very daunting at first and finding the right therapist just as difficult. Having a no obligation initial assessment allows you the opportunity to seek out the right counsellor before you commit yourself to doing the work.
At the centre of my work is the relationship with an individual and I see this as the most important part of the therapy. You need to feel safe and be able to trust I will hold your information with good intent and give you a sense of security.
I am experienced in working with the individual within the therapeutic relationship. I work alongside you in order to understand how you see the world. My work is around helping you gain a sense of self, understanding and autonomy and to do the work at your own pace, but in a supported way.
I recognise the importance not only to current experiences and ways of relating, but also to how these may be linked to earlier experiences. I believe the past affects the present and sometimes these old patterns of relating may no longer be helpful. Understanding the influence of the past on current behaviour, thoughts or feelings which are causing difficulty or distress may help bring relief and open possibilities for change.
I work with a wide range of issues; depression, anxiety, panic disorders, social anxieties, stress, addictions, relationship issues, grief and bereavement including miscarriages and stillbirths, attachment disorders, dissociation, trauma, low self-esteem, confidence issues, child sexual abuse and abuse, redundancy, family issues and hearing loss. Also, working with couples and Individuals who have experienced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I have an awareness of forces life, Deaf and hearing loss and unemployment.
