Julie Best Clark Counsellor and psychotherapist working from the Nautilus Rooms Totnes
Julie Best Clark

I have been working as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist for the past few years having completed an Intensive 6 year Master’s degree course in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre in London.

My aim is to bring together effective approaches incorporating a variety of therapeutic models such as relational therapy, psychodynamic, attachment theory, person centred and neuroscience. This will also depend on your individual needs. My experience also covers body psychotherapy and energy work.  I offer both short and long term therapy and the length of therapy will depend upon the presenting issues and your wishes. I can also bring in a creative element by offering the use of drawing, sand tray and figures to help the unconscious mind uncover the hidden truths.

I have worked with all age groups including working in a children’s centre.

I also worked for many years as a Reiki healer and teacher and the combination of both Psychotherapy and energy work lends itself to a very effective, holistic and lasting treatment.

I have been working with people therapeutically for 20 years both in private practise and for the NHS, covering a number of issues including bereavement, depression, anxiety, work related issues, relationship breakdown, addiction, trauma, abuse and chronic pain, adoption, domestic abuse and pre/post natal depression.

My background started off with training to be a homeopath and naturopath whilst living overseas. I helped many people over the years with their health issues and it was during this time that I realised often people came to me to talk about what was going on in their lives, as a homeopathic consultation involves a vast amount of getting to the bottom of what is going on for a person. It was then I decided to train to be a psychotherapist to improve my understanding and delve deeper.

My experience also covers 12 years of working with women and children who have been affected by domestic abuse where I worked as a manager in a women’s centre and supervising a children’s therapeutic service.

I believe the relationship between therapist and client to be very important where we explore issues together and with this I offer an empathic, supportive, safe and confidential space.
