About Me

Julie Marie Bowen - Accredited EMDR Practitioner with EMDR UK & Europe. Currently in further training as an EMDR Consultant. Accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) following their code of ethics.  I was working in the NHS prior to starting Private Practice in 2013.

I specialise in working with individuals aged 17 plus who are suffering with trauma, PTSD, (Post-traumatic stress disorder), abuse, sexual assault, anxiety disorders, depression, relationship and behavioural difficulties and a range of other problems. 

I have monthly supervision and continuing professional development as part of the requirement for safe practice.

Additional therapies offered Kundalini Reiki healing, Reiki attunements and PEMF (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields) therapy for those who might be suffering with low energy, pain or other aliments acute or chronic. PEMF has many benefits, please see Reiki and PEMF for further details.

My Journey

Having been extremely successful in helping people overcome their difficulties since 2008. Being a therapist is my life purpose helping and supporting people in their recovery.

I understand how anxiety provoking and challenging it is starting therapy, but also how empowering the journey of self discovery can be. I have been through tough times myself so know how effective therapy is with the right  therapist. That's where the name Freedom Within came from, it's how I felt overcoming my difficulties.
