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 if you have not had counselling before.
Whether you are feeling generally sad or anxious, or are 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 with any questions and to discuss how counselling can help you. An initial telephone consultation session is confidential and FREE. If this sounds what you are looking for we can arrange a meeting. I look forward to hearing from you.
