About me

My name is Julie Vause (she/her) and I am a qualified Psychodynamic Therapist and a member of COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland) and a registered member of BACP. I am based in Grangemouth. 

I offer individual face to face counselling or online within the UK to adults and young people over 16yrs.

Are you someone who has experienced difficulties in your life that has left you feeling anxious, depressed, or alone and coping with day-to-day activities has become a chore? I offer a safe, confidential space to come alongside you as we work together to help you gain insight and self-awareness. A place where you are valued, accepted, and heard. Time to look at your relationship with yourself and others.

I have worked for many years within education, supporting families and children with complex social, emotional, and behavioural needs. I have provided emotional and psychological support for young people and adults in schools, the community and within a prison who have experienced sexual abuse, domestic violence, family, or child abuse and families who have been affected by alcohol and substance misuse. I have worked with the LGBTQ+ and transgender community and value diversity. I lived and worked within the Asian community where I supported families who were asylum seekers or refugees. 

I work with a range of challenges including, but not limited to anxiety, depression, anger, loss, bereavement, trauma, domestic abuse, childhood sexual abuse, sexual abuse within relationships, addiction, health, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, shame, dissociation, pregnancy loss, menopause, ageing and relationships.

I work within the Psychodynamic method, an approach which uses the relationship we build to safely help you understand your emotions and behaviours, bringing to light unconscious patterns of behaviour that are not working for you. This theory originates from Sigmund Freud, focusing on the unconscious mind as the source of psychological distress.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
