Julie McMillan MBACP (Reg)
You are reading my profile so it is likely that you have started thinking about choosing a counsellor you think you might be able to work with. You may have reached the point where you are feeling overwhelmed and your usual ways of coping aren't working for you. Your difficulties may feel too awful to share with anyone. I will provide a safe space where you can choose to explore anything, however worrying. I know that coming to counselling can feel like the most difficult step and that it takes courage and strength to reach the point of deciding to explore what's been happening. I will work alongside you in thinking about what it is you need 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 occur during therapy and are 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 often work with clients who require long term counselling. Every client 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 can provide daytime or evening appointments. I work Monday to Friday.
