About me

Julieanne offers you a safe space to engage in a caring therapeutic relationship based on trust, enabling a corrective, reparative experience. One where she hopes you will benefit from being fully seen and heard.

I am currently seeing clients remotely.

Most of us spend a lot of time thinking about past events, perhaps regretting lost opportunities or feeling resentful or maybe, we project ourselves into the future creating anxiety and “what if” scenarios. Both the past and future are out of our control. At first this may sound unbearable to contemplate. Coming to counselling allows you the opportunity to make peace with your past and gain present moment awareness. I welcome you on a guided discovery.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, a registered member of the BACP and Accredited Member of NCS. This means I work from a Person Centred approach integrating other modes of counselling to suit client's bespoke needs.

These include CBT, Gestalt, Psychotherapy, Transactional Analysis, Existentialism, and Mindfulness.  I offer brief therapy or longer term depth work for individuals. I have undertaken vigorous training with The Minster Centre in London and CPCAB and have studied additional therapy frameworks as part of my professional development including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have worked in both primary care within the NHS, offering time limited, solution focused therapy and in private setting with individuals at home, as a professional hoarding practitioner and a team member of Hoarding Disorders UK. I am familiar with working alongside multi-level agencies both in social care and mental health.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.
