Julie’s experience as an Accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist stretches over 20 years. In this time, Julie has worked with adults and young people aged 16 years and over. Her Person-Centred approach puts you and your needs at the heart of any treatment, allowing her to best understand your needs. This means Julie is able to integrate other methods in order to give you the best support possible.
As an Accredited EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) Consultant, Julie uses this practice as the main way in which she works 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, Julie is a qualified Clinical Supervisor offering supervision to psychotherapists and counsellors.
Julie is also an EMDR Accredited Consultant offering Supervision to EMDR therapists and is able to take them through their Accreditation and Consultancy process.
Caring and sensitive by nature, Julie is committed to treating all of her clients with respect and acceptance. Helping people grow to their full potential is something she feels passionately about. Her 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.
Julie firmly believes 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. Julie can provide that helping hand, supporting you to develop a greater understanding of your feelings, thoughts and behaviours.
