counselling With Julie

Counselling provides you with an opportunity to talk about and express your feelings and emotions associated with your situation with a trained Counsellor who will empathise and support you without judgement throughout the process.

Julie’s aim is to enhance your emotional well-being by working with you face to face, tailoring each counselling session to your individual needs.

Each counselling session with Julie is client led which means we will collaboratively work together with whatever issue or concern you bring to the session.

During sessions you will be encouraged to talk about your situation. Julie will paraphrase and reflect back to you what you have said; this not only helps you to actually “hear what you are saying” it also helps Julie to clarify she has heard and understood what you have said.

At times it may be beneficial to introduce techniques such as practical exercises, visualisation and creativity into the sessions.

Together we will explore your reactions to your issues and concerns and how they affect you in the “here and now.”

Additionally, Julie will help you to identify your values and beliefs, strengths and qualities, thus increasing your awareness of how they fuse together, helping you to make sense of your experience, resolve difficulties and work towards a more fulfilling life.

Ultimately, Julie will work with you to establish the best possible outcome for you and your situation and providing you engage in the counselling process positive change will occur.
