Welcome, a little about me…..

Welcome to Sonas Counselling and Psychotherapy. My name is Julie and I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy from my private practice in Kirriemuir.

I am qualified to offer both Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am experienced in providing counselling and psychotherapy to adults who come for many different reasons including depression, anxiety, anger, OCD and stress. In addition to working with individual clients I also work with couples. I offer a safe, confidential environment and a warm, non-judgemental approach. The work that I do is ethical, professional and closely supervised. I am a current member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy), EATA (European Association for Transactional Analysis) and UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) who monitor standards of competence and ethical practice for TA practitioners.

My background is in sales and management where I worked for over 20 years, therefore I understand the daily pressures that can arise whilst working in this environment. Also, as a mother I appreciate the stresses of family life and how this can impact our well being. Counselling and Psychotherapy allows us to explore and understand how we can move forward and improve the quality of our lives.

I work very hard to keep a keen and sharp edge as a therapist and to offer excellence in my practice. I am committed to ongoing training and development and believe it is vital for me to continue to learn and grow my practice as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

Choosing to take part in therapy can be a daunting experience. It is really important to find someone that you feel you can work with. My philosophy is that the relationship we will create is the key to therapy. The way in which I work is based on the principles of Transactional Analysis and the use of counselling skills.
You will find all the information you require on my website to decide if therapy is the right choice for you. I am qualified to offer both online and face to face sessions.
If you have any further questions, please contact me.
