Welcome to my profile. My name is Julie. I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
Life isn’t always easy, we don’t always have control over people and situations around us. I am passionate and committed in supporting others through life’s difficulties. Through Counselling I can help enable and empower you to make the right choices for your life regardless of the situation.
Through my work with a well know charity, I work therapeutically with both Men and Women who have been abused as children and young adults. I help them to find a greater sense of safety and security and start on the road to recovery.
I am a genuine and warm person and offer a safe non-judgemental place to explore difficulties and bring about change. Counselling is a healing relationship, where you will feel supported to face some of life’s difficult changes. Self-esteem and confidence can be effected by life’s troubles, I offer sessions to improve this.
To help you decide, I offer an initial 50 min session so you can see if I am the right person to help you. We will then decide together what your goals are, and how we will continue.
Counselling is a commitment to yourself. A place to grow and feel motivated to change.
I specialise in abuse, child abuse, PTSD, sexual abuse and domestic violence, this includes both current and historic cases. To have someone to talk to and work through the trauma related symptoms can alleviate distress and empower your life.

Everything starts with a 50 minute assessment consultation to see if I'm the right person to help you. It's really important that you feel you can work with your counsellor, or mentor. Seeking help is a commitment to yourself. The very act of starting means that you want to make a positive change in your life and you want the relationship and experience to start off right. During the initial session we discover what's the best way to work for you. For some this may mean weekly sessions, for others it might be every two weeks or even monthly. You decide, these are your sessions.
