Julie Martin BA (Hons) Counselling, Reg. MBACP and ACC (Accred), Dip Sup/CBT
I offer individual counselling, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. The first session involves getting to know each other, talking things over, and finding out what kind of help you are seeking from counselling. From my experience, clients often find that counselling provides a valuable opportunity to explore their difficulties, to gain different perspectives and to find a way forward in the situations they are facing.
I see both men and women for short and long-term counselling, and operate an equal opportunities’ policy in my practice.
I also offer one-to-one counselling supervision and group supervision to qualified therapists and students.
