Introductions and Launch Day


I am Julie Folkes-Skinner. I attended the launch event last Saturday which I found to be very interesting and enjoyable.  I am particularly excited about becoming part of a group of therapy professionals who wish to share their experience and understanding with other professionals working in social care, voluntary agencies etc.

I have nearly 20 years experience of working as a psychodynamic therapist. I currently work as an Lecturer in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Leicester (UOL) where I am course director of the MA programme and Director of the UOL Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Clinic.I also work in the student counselling service where I see clients. I  have a Ph.D in counselling and psychotherapy and experience of conducting research on therapist professional development and the development of resilience and emotional resourcefulness.

I am interested in developing projects such as training courses, supervision, consultancy etc. with APPCIOS.  I iintend to apply for membership shortly. So I look forward to becoming part of the organisation and making a positve contribution to it.
