About me

Hi, my name is Julie, I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, which means I combine different psychotherapies to best suit the client that I am working with. I treat everyone as an individual giving them my full care, attention, and support.

How counselling could help

Have you ever thought, I don’t know who to talk to, where to turn or are you feeling confused? Is there an issue you would like to explore to find out your true thoughts and feelings surrounding it. You may be feeling vulnerable or may not know what is wrong.  At times life can be a struggle and feel muddled. If this sounds familiar, then counselling could help you to find answers to move forward in your life.

My Approach

I believe the relationship between a counsellor and a client is especially important in order for us to be able to work together. With this in mind I offer a free initial telephone assessment where we can be assured that we are comfortable with each other.  This also gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have.

Working together we can look at what might be going on for you. I will do my best to understand the place that you are in and we will go at your own pace.

I will provide a space for you to talk which is confidential, safe, comfortable, and calm for us to work together. I am genuine and realistic in my approach. You will be treated with the utmost respect. You will be valued, listened to, and heard.

I will strive to understand your true feelings in a supportive, empathetic, and therapeutic manner with the aim to helping you move forward in a positive way. Hopefully, you can regain some strength to be able to cope better with what is going on within your life.

You will not be judged on whatever you bring to counselling.

I offer short and long-term therapy. I am able to offer face to face or telephone counselling. These sessions are 50 mins on a Thursday or Friday (daytime or evenings), I can be flexible with my hours. Some Saturday sessions are also available.

I undertake further training and I abide by the ethical framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. (BACP) to give my clients the best service I can, helping them to make the changes in their life.

Counselling changes lives.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
