Julie Iveson - Reg MBACP, DIP Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling (DPC)
Welcome! I offer a warm, relaxed and empathic space to help you develop self-understanding, compassion and acceptance in the face of difficult life experiences.
Many people find it daunting to come for counselling or psychotherapy and may feel anxious not knowing what to expect. I understand how daunting it can be which makes it very important that you feel you have a sense of whether I am the right person to work with you.
I can offer you a safe space to explore either "here and now" issues, or more deep seated long standing issues that are impacting your daily life. Counselling can help you to understand yourself, develop self-awareness and start to make your own choices in life.
I am a professionally qualified and experienced Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP. Professionally trained at the accredited Northern Guild in Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I have been working with a wide range of issues including:- stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, early trauma, abuse and relationship issues. My specialism is to work with clients with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. However, I do work with neurotypical clients too. My work is professionally supervised in accordance with the BACP guidelines and I adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics.
I work in a relational way, with an underlying model of Transactional Analysis as my foundation. Working relationally means that we will look at what happens between us in the therapy room as a tool to explore relationships you have with others. TA is a way of understanding and intervening in human behaviour and empowering people to take responsibility for their lives.
I can support you by offering a relaxed, safe and confidential space to explore your personal issues in a caring, accepting and respectful way to help you make sense of what is going on for you and what you want to change.

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.
