Julie Kleeman Dip Counselling Registered MBACP
07976 950 257 / 07976 950 257
I am a highly experienced counsellor, I have worked in mental health for the past 20 years in GP surgeries, University College Hospital, occupational health settings as well seeing clients in my own practice.
I offer individual weekly or fortnightly appointments, providing a confidential, non-judgemental space, 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.
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."
