Julie Mayers Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor
I am a qualified clinical supervisor adhering to the BACP ethical framework. Working within the NHS managing a counselling service consisting of 22 counsellors, I have a vast amount of experience in supporting both qualified and student counsellors. I also have many years of experience working with patients in emotional distress experiencing anxiety and depression following a cancer or terminal illness diagnosis. In addition I have been a volunteer counsellor for 4 years at Mind, the mental health charity and have gained experience of working with a variety of mental health conditions. I also have experience of providing time-limited and open ended therapy to clients of all ages with various mental health conditions and differing levels of severity. In addition I run a private practice and I am a MHFA (Mental Health First Aider) Instructor delivering courses to NHS staff to raise awareness of mental health. I have a particular interest in grief and loss, trauma/PTSD and utilising self-compassion techniques when working with clients. I can offer a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space to explore collaboratively your client work, to help improve the client's experience of counselling whilst ensuring the client work is ethical and working to best practice guidelines. I am passionate about ongoing learning, to support both my clients and supervisees. I regularly attend a variety of CPD courses to ensure I keep my practice up-to-date, to ensure I provide the best service I can possibly give. I look forward to hearing from you.
