Julie Mulligan BACP Accredited Counsellor & Supervisor
Hi, I'm Julie, welcome to my page, I really appreciate you taking the time to look. I am a fully qualified, Person Centred Counsellor, with over 13 years’ experience. I work with children, young people,adults and couples.
”Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step.” (Mariska Hargitay).
The decision to come to counselling can be a huge step. If you’re wondering whether counselling is for you, please call or email me for a chat. We both need to ensure that we’re confident we can work together. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
You are unique. This includes your history, your experiences, your reactions to events, your thoughts and most importantly your feelings. In today's society we are encouraged to bottle up our feelings and told to “snap out of it”. Dismissing those thoughts and feelings doesn't make them disappear, ignored feelings will always find another way to grab our attention.
Life can be challenging at times and can make you feel alone, depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed. You may feel stuck, and have a sense that your life isn't as you want it, there may be things from your past that you would like to tackle, or there may be things in the present you may want to try and change.
Do you need to talk about how you are feeling, need someone to listen? I believe you have the answers within you, and if, and when you are ready, giving this focus to your feelings can help you to gain greater self-awareness...ultimately feel happier, and more in control of your life. In our lifetime, we will all experience difficult and challenging times where we feel we need that extra support, and sometimes it is hard to talk to family and friends and you just need that one person who takes the time to listen and that's where I, as a counsellor can help.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me.
