About me

This section is titled 'about me' but I am more interested in you first.

(more about me later!)

  • - Are you feeling over anxious and want to worry less?
  • - Do you struggle with low moods, and want to feel happier more of the time?
  • - Are you experiencing difficulties in your relationships at work or at home do you need help to understand why?
  • - Are you having difficulty relaxing and sleeping?
  • - Do you you use food, alcohol or drugs to manage your feelings?
  • - Are you struggling to go to work? maybe you are stressed and even burning out?
  • - Or maybe you are struggling with retirement, its not what you thought it would be and you feel you have lost your role in life.

Or could it be that you feel that things are just not quite right and you need to talk it through?

This is where I come in, I will try to help you find a way to make your life easier.

Now that bit about me!

I am Julia, I am very interested in you and your concerns. I really want to help you feel better.

How would I do that ?

Firstly, you will find me approachable, good humored and caring. I am also very experienced. I provide you with a cosy, quiet, relaxing, & confidential room where we can think about and talk through what you are finding difficult in your life.

I will not tell you what to do, but I will help you to find the answers for yourself.

I have a special interest in people working in the emergency services and health care professions. People who are struggling with workplace stress, burnout, exhaustion and compassion fatigue.

I want to help you feel better,  less worried,  feel less depressed, to be able to go to work and enjoy it. I want to know you are able to enjoy your friends, hobbies and family life again.

In your weekly appointment I will treat you with respect, compassion and without judgement.

Training, qualifications & experience

Dip H&SC(Open), BA(Hons)Palliative care,
Dip & Pg Dip,Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling. (University Of Hertfordshire)
Senior Accredited Member of National Counselling Society


My Background
I have worked as a District Nurse, followed by 12 years as a Community Macmillan
Specialist Nurse.

During this time I have found caring for people and their families nearing
the end of their lives challenging, but rewarding. I decided to develop my knowledge and skills in supporting them psychologically at this difficult time in their lives. This led me onto training in counselling therapy.

As a result I am now able to help those who are having other difficulties their lives.

My Counselling Experience
I am an experienced counsellor  working extensively in my private practice. I receive regular supervision to ensure my practice is safe and effective.

As a result of my counselling experience and regular updating I have been awarded Senior Accreditation with the National Counselling Society

Recent CPD includes anger management, PTSD, Vicarious trauma & compassion fatigue

My Psychodynamic counselling approach


This involves taking a deeper look at the significant relationships experienced in your early years. How these may  be impacting on your current relationships and possibly contributing to your current emotional difficulties.

I have undertaken basic training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

I am confident and familiar in working with people who are experiencing:- loss, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, stress and bereavement.

I am a Senior Accredited member of National Counselling Society (NCS) and I adhere to their code of ethics.

I am also able to help any professional who is finding it hard to cope, and wants to find a way back to achieving a healthy work life balance.

Fees

My fees are £50 for a 50minute session.

Your sessions are weekly and at a regular time. This is your space and time so will not be available to anyone else for as long as you want to come.   I will see you on time, every time.

I can be flexible if you are working shifts.

Evening & Daytime appointments are currently available.

I am able to reduce my fee for counselling students.

During your initial assessment we will talk and discover if we can work well together. If you decide that my approach is not for you then there will be no pressure to continue with me.
