Julie Jones MA MBACP
Anxiety, sadness, and relationship difficulties are just some of the issues that can prevent you from living your best possible life. Whether you are struggling with a specific problem or episode in your life, talking with a counsellor can enable you to understand your feelings, develop your sense of self-worth and live more contentedly. Whatever you have been through that has brought you here today, you have survived. Counselling can enable you to begin to thrive.
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, respectful environment where you can feel safe to talk about personal matters. This may feel daunting at first, but will be the beginning of the change you are seeking.
I realise that considering counselling is a big decision, and choosing the right counsellor can be difficult, especially if you have not had counselling before. You have already taken your first brave step by beginning this search.
Thank you for reading my profile, I hope it was helpful. If you feel ready to take the next step 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, and working with you.
