Julie Summer - MBACP. Dip.Couns BACP Registered
Although there has been a great shift in understanding mental health, there is still a depth of misconceptions. sometimes it feels like there is no one to understand and emphasise with how you feel, in turn leaving you to feel very alone in your thoughts and feelings.
I'm an Integrative therapist with an extensive history of providing a warm, non-judgemental, safe environment for you to express your thoughts and feelings that are holding you back from leading a fulfilling life.
As an Integrative therapist, my approach is person-centred. By this, i mean that i put you at the heart of the therapy because it is my belief that no one else knows you better than yourself. I am not restricted to one approach, i also incorporate mindfulness CBT therapy if i feel it would be useful.
As an individual, you have the potential to be the best you can be and to be at peace with yourself. My approach aims to provide you with those tools to enable you to reach your full potential and to find peace to live a fuller, content life.
There is no shame in seeking help and guidance. As a counsellor i am here to help you feel less alone and to work with you to gain a greater understanding and acceptance of life challenges that may be barriers to living a peaceful life.
I have many years of experience, supporting a wide range of clients from a variety of age groups and all with different issues. No one person is the same as the other.
