You may be suffering with feelings of stress, anxiety, or depression; or emotions which gush out disproportionately to what seems to have triggered them; struggling in relationships which cause you distress; or recent events may have brought to the surface painful feelings which seem hard to manage or which feel confusing. Whatever is troubling you, I offer a safe space to explore and work through it together. For me psychotherapy is not only for those with a diagnosable psychological issue, or for someone who can be labelled as having something 'wrong' with them, it can benefit anyone who wants to get more out of life.

Hi, my name is Julie. I am passionate about offering hope to all adults who are struggling with mental health challenges and often with trauma. Understanding trauma-related symptoms goes hand in hand with providing a therapeutic space to process the pain of past experiences. My aim is to empower clients; I offer hope, a place to grow and a supportive relationship to motivate change.

Life can be difficult, and humans are complex beings. It’s not surprising we can end up feeling unhappy, lost or overwhelmed. Dealing with emotions is an important part of self-care and counselling can equip you with the awareness and tools to be kinder to yourself. People often choose to have therapy when things go wrong, but you don’t have to be in crisis.
Psychotherapeutic counselling sessions can help with your mental health needs which require regular maintenance. At See For Miles our sensitive, yet challenging approach to counselling is strengthened through developing a strong working relationship between therapist and client, encouraging those to move from where they are now. Enabling clients to explore their own options, reach their own decisions and to act upon them accordingly, making effective decisions which lead to positive changes in their attitude and/or behaviour.
"There is a crack in everything - that's how the light gets in" (Leonard Cohen). I love this. We all have problems, things we don't like about ourselves, things we struggle with over and over. It's part of being human, none of us are completely 'sorted'. But sometimes we feel overwhelmed, desperate, alone.... the cracks are too big, the light isn't getting in. Or we feel stuck, frustrated, exhausted, going round in circles, nothing will ever change. Perhaps you feel you can't be the real you. Maybe you feel like this a lot, or maybe it's new for you and your usual coping/support isn't working. Maybe you don't know what's wrong.
If now is the right time to talk about something that is troubling you, please contact me. It may be that you are struggling with feelings of anxiety and low mood. Perhaps you have experienced loss or trauma and need to talk about this or maybe you just need to make some changes in your life. I understand that this step is not always an easy one, but I will listen without judgement and offer a safe, supportive environment to enable you to talk freely. Talking together can help to clarify things and find a way through. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and life stages, from young adulthood through to later life.
Starting therapy is a brave and sometimes difficult decision. Our aim at SOS Therapies is to build a trusting relationship where we can work together collaboratively. If you are struggling SOS seeks to help you feel comfortable and safe to explore your feelings and experiences so that a way forward can be found.
