Julie McMillan MBACP (Reg)
You are reading my profile and may be wondering whether you could work with me. It may be that your problems feel too overwhelming to share with anyone and so choosing a counsellor might feel difficult. I will provide a safe space where you can choose to explore anything, however worrying. I know that coming to counselling can feel like a big step and that it may have taken a long time for you to reach this point. I will work alongside you in thinking about what you need from me to begin this part of your journey.
As a psychodynamic counsellor, I work with an understanding that there are unique connections between the counsellor and client which are formed during therapy and influenced by early experiences. I believe that these connections can be used to bring about a new awareness of present difficulties in your life and relationships. I provide a structure that will hold and support you as your awareness grows and you explore different ways of being. Every client is different and my approach will depend on your needs and goals for counselling. I can also signpost you to other specialist services should the need arise.
We may agree to work together for a limited time and I also work with clients who require long-term counselling. Every person is different and you may decide what kind of commitment will work best for you as you discover what brought you to counselling and what you hope to achieve.
I can arranged to see you in either Milton Keynes or Leighton Buzzard depending on your home or work location. I also provide online counselling. I offer daytime or evening appointments and work Monday to Friday.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
