Julie Swain MA MBACP (Accred)
People seek counselling and psychotherapy for many different reasons. Perhaps you are finding it difficult to cope with overwhelming feelings or are struggling with a life situation which has become intolerable. You might be worrying or feeling anxious about day-to-day life. Forming or maintaining meaningful relationships may be difficult for you. You might have experiences or memories from the past that trouble you. Whatever the nature of your difficulties, by thinking about them together we can begin to make sense of the way you are feeling.
I am a BACP registered psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist delivering individual counselling and psychotherapy. I offer short-term and long-term therapy and we can discuss what would be most helpful for you in an initial session.
Please contact me by phone or email to arrange an initial consultation. Please note, If I am with clients I will be unable to take your call. However, if you leave your details I will contact at the earliest opportunity.

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).
