About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

My name is Julia Wright, I am a fully qualified Counsellor and have been working for the last 25 years within the field of mental wellbeing. I hold Registered member status of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I have an accredited Bsc Hons degree in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Institute (SPTI) in Nottingham.

I began as a project worker for a homeless project, and thereafter qualified as a Social worker with an interest in adult mental health, working within this field for several years. I later became employed by the Police service as a Welfare and Counselling Advisor, during which time I received extensive in-house training, therefore I have a lot of experience in:

  • stress and anxiety management
  • depression
  • relationship issues
  • trauma
  • bereavement support.

I worked with individuals exposed to traumatic events (including Tsunami aid workers), and led debriefs following critical incidents. I have also delivered training courses in subjects such as stress and anxiety management, and adult protection.

Humanistic and Integrative Counselling

I offer a client centred approach based on respect, empathy and honesty. My role is to support you in exploring the reasons you are seeking therapy, within a non-judgemental environment. By creating a safe, open and genuine relationship with you, we can together find ways to deal with the difficulties you are experiencing. This can lead to you becoming more confident, empowered and self-fulfilled when dealing with life's challenges.

The therapy room I have chosen also embodies the importance of creating a warm, tranquil and relaxed space in which to feel safe in exploring the issues that have brought you to therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Honours Degree in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, following three years of training at the highly-respected Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI: in Nottingham.

This is a course that is fully accredited by the British Association of Counselling and BACP_32869_1.jpgPsychotherapy (BACP:

I am also a registered member of the BACP, and am guided by, and adhere to, their ethical framework.

I have previously qualified as a social worker, underwent trauma management and stress management training during my role with the Police, and hold a degree in business (from an earlier stage of my life!).
