Julie Kleeman Dip Counselling Registered MBACP
07976 950 257 / 07976 950 257
I am a highly experienced counsellor with a nursing background. I offer affordable counselling, providing a confidential non judgmental space, helping you to feel better and develop coping strategies.Through active listening and exploration of your circumstances I am often able to provide insight and help in a short course of sessions.
I have worked in mental health for the past 22 years in GP surgeries, University College Hospital (UCLH) & occupational health settings, as well seeing clients in private practice.
I offer individual weekly or fortnightly appointments, enabling exploration of issues such as anxiety, lack of confidence and low self esteem, in order to feel better, enable change, and to develop coping strategies.
I am also a nurse, my medical background means that I am particularly able to support people struggling with health issues and carers.
The First Session
I think the relationship between myself and my clients builds the foundation for successful and effective sessions. This is why I offer a no obligation first session. This offers you the time and space to explore your concerns and talk about what you'd like to achieve from counselling.
All sessions are 50 minutes, I can offer flexible appointments including evenings & weekends. We will work at your pace, and you are in control of what aspects of your life we discuss in the time we have together.
Training, qualifications & experience
My counselling qualifications include a Diploma in Adult Counselling from University of London and a certificate in Counselling skills and Attitudes from Westminster Pastoral Foundation.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of conduct. I am also a registered nurse.
My training is psychodynamic counselling, working with individuals.
My aim is generally for short term work , face to face as opposed to online, as I believe the value of having a regular space for oneself is paramount to the progress of the work.
I have extensive experience in health & also workplace issues.

“Julie is a deeply caring and compassionate counsellor who provided much-needed support to me in the workplace. I sincerely endorse her psychotherapeutic counselling skills.”
"I came to Julie as a first time mum, a few months after having my little one. It was a particularly difficult time for myself and my family. As a young professional prior to having the baby, I felt as though suddenly everything was out of my control and that I wasn’t coping. Having Julie’s help in working through that time was invaluable. Julie showed empathy, patience, understanding and a kindness I had never experienced with other therapists. I am now really enjoying my time as a mum - I was really lucky to have found Julie when I did and can’t recommend her enough."
