About Julie Slumbers
I am an integrative therapist who believes that we all have the ability to feel better if we are prepared to explore our inner world. This can be a difficult journey and requires a person to feel safe enough to express their thoughts and feelings in a space where they are not going to be judged.

It is my task to provide the time and space necessary to make this possible whilst offering warm encouragement, acceptance and insight into what might have happened which has caused a person to feel unhappy, worried, confused or stuck.

As an integrative therapist I use a range of theories including, humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, gestalt, Jung and TA. The benefit of having such a diverse and extensive range of theories means that I am able to blend these ideas in a way which helps me and my client understand how, when and why they have developed as they have and also offer a wider view of what is possible and useful in order to move forward.

My aim as a therapist is to help my client achieve their own goals by working through and accepting the events of their life and/or forgiving themselves for their perceived mistakes; sometimes we do not even know why we feel the way we do. As such I offer open-ended counselling. This does not mean a client will necessarily be working longer term; what it does mean is that it is the client’s choice as to how many sessions they would like.

I offer one to one counselling for individuals in a comfortable room in a private practice based in a central location in Worthing.
My training, work experience and any achievement
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Therapy and a current Enhanced CRB certificate

Previously I have worked for The Information Shop which offers counselling for people between 13-25 years old. Here I saw clients for long and short term work.

I have also worked as a counsellor within a drink and drug agency, SASS, which offered time-limited therapy for clients at various stages of managing their addiction.

Most recently, until 2013, I have worked with the elderly at an NHS hospital treating patients with ongoing and terminal illness as well as recovery and rehabilitation.

Further Information
If you are unsure whether counselling will be helpful for you I am happy to answer any questions or provide any information via email before deciding if you would like to book an initial appointment with me. The purpose of the first session is to decide if we think we will be able to work well together and in order to do this I carry out an assessment which involves asking for some background information as well as your current issues. This is an opportunity for you to ask anything about how counselling works or my way of working, as well as what to expect. At the end of the session you can either book another appointment or get back to me if you decide you would like to continue.
