Julie Dawn Jones

Live-in Therapist

Julie holds a BSc (HONS) in Psychology and is an accredited addiction Counsellor. Her interest in Psychology developed further when she gained her PGCE and lectured Psychology and Counselling in Cardiff and the Vale College (CAVC). She also has qualifications in Systemic Family Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, sexual addictions and compulsivity and is a trained Counselling Supervisor. She has had her own private practice for over 20 years and has worked in Rehabilitations Internationally and Nationally in the UK. She works from an integrated perspective, and her skills set has offered her clients a base to explore issues such as abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management and eating disorders. Her passion for her work is based on her own family history of addictions and negative cycles, and she has been instrumental in forming the integrated family team across the UK. The integrated family service supports families when they are struggling with drug and alcohol issues. She is repeatedly asked to work with vulnerable children and adults to help resolve domestic violence within the family home, which Julie also has a passion for. “Sometimes things don’t make sense until you take time to work the little things through. Your journey starts with one small step”.
