Counsellor and EMDR Consultant
Julie is a Counsellor and EMDR Therapist working with adults
My experience as an Accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist stretches over 18 years. In this time, I have worked with adults and young people aged 16 years and over. My Person-Centred approach puts you and your needs at the heart of any treatment, allowing me to best understand your needs. This means I am able to integrate other methods in order to give you the best support possible.
As an Accredited EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) Consultant, I use this practice as the main way in which I work with clients. EMDR therapy is one of two treatments recommended by The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). It is useful for people who have experienced some form of trauma and are struggling to manage on a day to day basis. Issues that can be treated by EMDR include childhood trauma, physical/ sexual abuse, road traffic accidents, overwhelming fears, nightmares, panic attacks, phobia, post-traumatic stress disorders, bereavement, grief, anxiety, pain and depression.
Additionally, I am a qualified Clinical Supervisor offering supervision to psychotherapists, counsellors and EMDR therapists.
Caring and sensitive by nature, I am committed to treating all of my clients with respect and acceptance. Helping people grow to their full potential is something I feel passionately about. My aim is to provide a safe, encouraging environment in which you can explore, discover and clarify ways of living that will support your ongoing wellbeing.
I firmly believe that we all carry within us the ability to grow and heal. Sometimes, we lose sight of that and need a helping hand to reconnect. I can provide that helping hand, supporting you to develop a greater understanding of your feelings, thoughts and behaviours.
