About me and my therapy practice
Hello my name is Julia and if you are reading this, I guess you are considering counselling and trying to find the right counsellor for you.
You may be feeling anxious, low, overwhelmed, perhaps a little disconnected from others. The reasons behind these feelings might be obvious to you; a recent loss, relationship difficulties, work related stress, a big life event or a change in circumstances.
Or perhaps the reasons behind your feelings seem like a mystery and despite telling yourself all is well, those thoughts/feelings are not going away/are really troubling you.
Counselling will offer you a safe, confidential space where together we can explore your difficult thoughts and feelings in a supportive and non-judgmental way. We will work at your pace with what you feel comfortable sharing. This might be unresolved feelings from the past, conflicts in the present or worries about the future. You always get to decide what you share.
I will use my professional skills to support you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, a greater awareness of your choices and work towards personal growth and the possibility of change.
My experience includes helping individuals with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-worth, relationship difficulties, family conflicts, work related stress, trauma, self-harm, grief and loss.
I have worked in an agency setting, a secondary school and more recently in private practice. I also have years of experience working in a large sales organisation where I was a passionate advocate of education around positive mental health in the workplace.
As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists I abide by the professional standards set out in the BACP Ethical Framework for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I can provide both short-term and long-term counselling, in person from my counselling room in Streetly near Sutton Coldfield.
My first session
I understand that not everyone knows what they want from therapy or how to choose a therapist to suit their needs. I offer a free 15 minute consultation during which we can have a conversation so that you see how it feels to talk with me and from there you can make an informed decision about whether you would like to begin working together.
