A warm welcome from Julia
As a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to an ethical code which assures safety and professionalism throughout our therapeutic journey together.
My core beliefs are to work with warmth, confidentiality and in a non-judgemental manner. A vision in supporting you to recognise the way in which you individually relate and build the relationships which surround you.
Together we will work towards discovering a deeper understanding of who you are and why you act and react the way you do to people and in certain situations. I believe that this understanding can lead to a fuller, lighter and happier life.
I use the Person-Centred approach to build up a therapeutic relationship with my clients and then introduce other therapies to best suit you.
Importantly, we will work in a manner which feels comfortable whether this is by introducing creative intervention work or simply sharing the emotional load safely together through talking, listening and reflection.
Often someone can feel that counselling is only necessary when they arrive at a crisis point, but my belief is that it can support with many different issues which can pop up in our everyday world.
Our first session together will offer you the opportunity to see how things feel, agree potential focus areas and to explore how we can work in alliance.
Julia's counselling space is in a central Barnstaple location, and has been purposefully created to offer light, comfort and a sense of both tranquillity and safety.
Premises are wheel chair accessible.
