Hi, my name is Judy Marshall-Watkin, I am a member of BACP and, I subscribe to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice which includes the requirement of regular professional supervision, confidentiality and ongoing professional development. I carry full liability insurance.
I have attained MSc level qualifications in both Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Accredited course) and Analytical Behaviour Analysis. I have combined over 10 years’ experience of working with clients on an individual face to face basis. I have been fortunate enough to work with young people and adults in a community centre, primary school (+10 years old), secondary school and college environments. In private practice and other settings, I can offer support of an open-ended nature, as well as time-limited, focussed support consisting of 6 to 12 sessions, dependant on individual requirements. There is the opportunity to receive telephone and online counselling; please get in touch if you would like to discuss this further. During the Covid19 lockdown, this is the only option available.
As a person from a culturally diverse background, I believe that an understanding and knowledge of diversity in all its forms can help the therapeutic relationship to be effective. I have experience in working with a broad range of clients, including those who find social communication and interaction challenging. My shared experience of counselling parents of children with Autism Spectrum condition has been inspirational.
I have experience working with issues such as:
- Physical and emotional abuse
- Cultural conflict
- Mental trauma
- Eating disorders
- Behavioural issues
