I am offering online sessions via Skype.
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
- relationship issues
- 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: http://www.spti.net/) in Nottingham.
This is a course that is fully accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP: http://www.bacp.co.uk/).
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!).
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
