Julie Jones MA MBACP
Thank you for visiting my profile. I hope you find it helpful. I realise that considering counselling is a big step, and choosing a counsellor can be difficult especially if you have not had counselling before.
Whether you are feeling generally sad or anxious, having relationship difficulties or struggling with a specific problem or episode in your life, it can be useful to talk with someone who is not a close family member or friend.
In my experience, counselling can help us to cope with life events, make sense of difficult feelings, and move on to a more fulfilling life.
As a person-centred counsellor I offer non-directive therapy in a welcoming, confidential space where you can begin to explore and process your worries, experiences and feelings at your own pace, depth and direction.
I abide by the ethical guidelines of the BACP, to provide a professional, caring environment where you can feel safe to talk about personal matters which may feel daunting at first.
Please contact me by e-mail or telephone with any questions and to discuss how counselling can help you. If this sounds what you are looking for we can arrange a meeting. I look forward to hearing from you.
