My Counselling Space
Julie Devonald MBACP (Accred) MA Counselling
Practice room in Heaton Mersey, SK4 3LA.
Online counselling also available.
Sometimes life isn't the joy it should be and we wonder if talking to a professional will help.
If you are feeling anxious, depressed, are worried about something or want to talk things through, counselling could be the answer.
Issues I have worked with in the past include:
Stress (work and exam)
Dermatillomania (skin picking)
Before I started my training to be a counsellor, I had no idea that there were different modalities of counselling and so it's worth doing a bit of research to make sure you get what you want. Whatever the theory, counselling is an opportunity for you to work through what is troubling you with a neutral professional.
I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is crucial, so I offer a free 30 mins online session for us to meet and see if we wish to work together.
I am an experienced pluralistic psychotherapist, which means I use a variety of methods and we can work together to decide the best approach. I especially use a relational approach, mindfulness; and other creative methods. I am also a lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute.
I will try to offer a safe space to explore issues, and confidentiality (within ethical boundaries).
I have experience working with adults, teenagers and primary age children and have an enhanced DBS.
I have also taught mindfulness and anger management to groups.
How it works
After you contact me, we would arrange an initial free meeting to see if we can work together. We would also discuss number of
sessions and if you have particular goals.
My aim is to work with you with compassion and support to help you move forward positively to where you want to be. This can involve going back to childhood, looking at core beliefs, patterns of behaviour, and the relationship we have with others and with ourselves. We can't change other people but we can change our thoughts, actions and feelings.
If you contact me and you do not get a reply, please check your spam mail box. I will always reply, even if I cannot help.
I have an MA in Counselling from the University of Manchester. I also have qualifications in EFT and mindfulness and am a qualified counselling supervisor. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and am bound by their ethical framework.
