about me

Julie McCrae

I am a passionate, caring experienced integrative psychotherapist. I believe that no one person is the same therefore my therapeutic approach will differ in order to meet each individual person where they are at in their life.
 
I have had the opportunity to have experienced living and working in several different countries in my life. This experience has had an impact on my therapeutic approach and has helped mould who I am as a psychotherapist. I have been honoured to work with families and young people from many different cultures and socio economic backgrounds.
 
I have 13 years experience working mostly with children, adolescents, young adults and their families. I have extensive knowledge in play therapy, person centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy. I will integrate different modalities and techniques in my sessions which can include talking, play, art and music.
 

Education and Experience
I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London.I obtained my Bachelor’s of Social Science(Psychology) Degree from the University of Natal Durban, South Africa.
 
Accredited registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy No:110604
 
Before my training in psychotherapy I worked for several years in London with young disabled people who were at risk of social exclusion supporting them into training, education and employment, I have worked in many different therapeutic environments, ranging from a child and adolescent psychiatric hospital, private practice, schools, homeless shelters and outpatient counselling centres.
