Julie Mayers Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor adhering to the BACP Ethical Framework.
I can provide supervision for trainees, qualified counsellors and staff requiring external supervision. I am available for sessions on Fridays, Saturdays, and evenings, having facilities in both Runcorn and Frodsham. I have experience of providing face to face, telephone, and online supervision, to ensure supervision is accessible to all busy professionals.
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. Through my NHS work, I have gained a vast amount of experience working with patients in emotional distress, commonly experiencing anticipatory grief, grief and loss, body image issues and relationship issues resulting in anxiety and depression following a cancer or terminal illness diagnosis.
Having previously volunteered as a counsellor at Mind Halton for over 4 years, I gained experience of working time-limited with a variety of mental health conditions.
I currently run a private practice outside of my NHS commitments providing both time-limited and open ended therapy to clients of all ages with various mental health conditions and differing levels of severity.
I am passionate about raising awareness of mental health issues and as a MHFA (Mental Health First Aider) Instructor, I co-deliver courses to NHS staff. I have a particular interest in grief and loss, trauma/PTSD and utilising self-compassion techniques when working with clients.
As a supervisor, I can offer a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space to explore collaboratively your client work. I provide support and guidance, to help you provide a quality service and improve the client's experience of counselling whilst ensuring the client work is ethical and working to best practice guidelines. Supervision is tailored to the individual needs of the supervisee and I draw upon the different models of supervision to ensure you receive the best experience you can.
I am passionate about ongoing learning, to support both my clients and supervisees. I regularly attend a variety of CPD courses to keep my practice up-to-date and to ensure I provide the best service I can possibly give. Within supervision sessions we can also explore your own personal development, empowering you to work in different ways to help achieve desired outcomes.
I offer a free initial meeting lasting 30 minutes to see if we would like to work together and if we agree to work together, we can agree a mutually convenient time for a full supervision session.
