Julie Millar MBACP
Julie Millar MBACP

I trained as a counsellor at the University of Chester, graduating with distinction. I have counselling experience with adult clients in a hospice, a sexual abuse support charity and in an agency that supports all .  I have worked with clients who have experienced:

  • bereavement
  • life limiting illness
  • cancer survivorship
  • role change (spouse/partner to carer)
  • child sexual abuse
  • rape and sexual assault
  • partner abuse
  • loss (job/role/hopes and dreams)
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • lack of self esteem
  • low mood

My qualifications are:

MA Clinical Counselling (University of Chester)

Cert HE Advanced Counselling Studies (University of Plymouth)

I am trained in the Person Centred Approach, a non-directive form of counselling which focuses on feelings and providing a safe environment where you can explore what is important to you.

I regularly undertake continuing professional education to keep my  knowledge up to date, covering issues such as child sexual abuse, rape and sexual assault, bereavement, self injury/harm, and the use of art and creativity in counselling.

I  have regular meetings with my counselling supervisor to ensure I practice safely and ethically. I am working towards accreditation with BACP.

Before training as a counsellor I have worked as an accountant,  a hospital chaplain and in an informational role for a major UK charity.

I am non judgemental and respect the broad range of spiritual and religious beliefs, agnosticism and atheism.

I am a registered member of BACP, and work to their ethical standards, a summary of which may be found here.
