Julia Wakefield-Harrey

About me

My name is Julia and I am qualified counsellor dedicated to providing you the support you need to move forth in your life. There are times when we struggle with feelings of hopelessness, depression and even the inability to cope. Although friends and family can support you, sometimes you may wish for an outside ear, one that is separate from your everyday life.

I can provide you with your own space to aid you through these difficult times; a safe and confidential space where you are able to talk and explore your emotions free from judgement.

I am dedicated, compassionate and approachable. With my extensive training I am able to help you with a wide range of issues. There is no problem too small and anything can be discussed with complete confidentiality.

My Approach

Counselling is personal and unique to everyone. I work with a number of different approaches that I adapt to suit your preferred style of counselling.  Everybody is an individual and I will always treat you as such. Some styles of counselling I bring to the sessions include:

  • Psychodynamic

We will explore with the unconscious side to your emotions. Together we will see how this process causes your difficult emotions to manifest.

  • Transactional analysis

We will explore your behaviour and social relationships and how they reflect upon aspects of your personality established in early life.

  • Person Centred

A humanistic approach where we explore together how you perceive yourself consciously and how such a view may have effected and perhaps caused difficult emotions to arise.

  • Gestalt

We explore your individual experiences from the past in the present moment.

  • Art

Through the use of art we see how your challenging feelings and experiences can be expressed in different ways.
