I am Julia Cole, a MBACP Senior Accredited Psychotherapist/Counsellor with 30 years experience of counselling in a variety of settings, including the Royal Navy, NHS, The London and Wessex Havens, a cancer charitable service, Priory Hospital group and private practice.

I also offer counselling supervision, specialising in relationship and couple issues.
