About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Julie.
I guess if you are reading this you are considering therapy for either yourself or someone you care about.
We all need help at times and asking for it can be one of the hardest but most beneficial things we can do for ourselves. I can offer you an empathic, safe and confidential space for you to explore whatever it is about your life now or in the past that is causing you distress. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation so please feel free to get in touch if you would like that.
I am an Accredited Counsellor and EMDR Therapist with 20+ years experience of working in the NHS.
I initially trained in Person Centred Theory, and I believe this is the best foundation for any therapy. It provides all the core elements to building a safe, trusting and meaningful relationship between client and therapist which can be the first steps to meaningful change.
My work incorporates my belief that as we are all different, one therapy definitely does not suit all people. We sometimes need different types of support at different times/stages in our lives.
Throughout my career I have trained and educated myself if other therapies such as EMDR, CBT, Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness. I believe these different therapies alongside a strong trauma informed element to my approach provide a sound basis for me to be able to offer you help.
My first session
The first session will be an assessment of your current situation and a chance for us to get to know one another. I believe the relationship is the most important part of any therapy so at the end of this session you can decide if I am the right fit for you and if the therapy I offer is suitable to your needs.
