About me

My name is Julia and I am currently working with clients by providing an online and telephone service, although when Covid-19 restrictions permit I will also provide face to face, outdoor counselling and home visits.

In my personal and professional life, I have first-hand experience of how trauma and loss can affect our lives and our own self-worth, resulting in anxiety and low-confidence.  I turned to counselling for help. I experienced how supportive counselling can be, how it can assist people to turn their lives around. This was my inspiration to become a counsellor.

As a passionate, highly skilled, and qualified person-centred counsellor I help clients through anxiety, depression, PTSD, bereavement, disability, physical pain, and feelings of low self-worth. I value you as a unique individual, helping you to feel listened to, accepted and understood. I will provide you with a regular time and safe space to explore, understand and address difficult feelings and past experiences in a non-judgmental and confidential environment. My non-directive style allows you to keep control, there is no worry about being assessed or evaluated.

The counselling I offer is based on the non-judgmental person - centred approach. Whatever our personal circumstances, daily life can be a tremendous struggle. Taking time for self- care can be difficult, whether you are a busy parent, carers, living on your own, in-between jobs, have a disability, a student, and individuals in demanding jobs. In these uncertain times of Covid-19, I am offering short term, long term counselling and a listening support service. I can offer you a service suited to your individual needs. Please contact me for further information.

I am close to and provide counselling services in and around, Otley , Skipton, Bradford , Ilkley, Harrogate, the Craven District and rural surrounding areas.

How can counselling help you?
Counselling can help you understand yourself and your behaviors better, providing an opportunity for you to talk about your problems, challenges, and difficult feelings in a safe confidential environment. I will listen to you with respect and without judgement. Counselling can help you to express and explore your thoughts and feelings about what is worrying you and make some sense of your responses and experiences. This can help you to feel more settled, confident and in control, empowering you to find a way to a more positive future.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 20 years’ experience in supporting, young people, adults and families who have suffered or suffering anxiety, depression and experiencing trauma in their lives.

What clients have said ;

You may shake your head and tell me it is your job, but it is rare to find people like you. People who want to make a difference. People who genuinely do care, people who want to listen and help. You have helped me learn so much about myself.

Julia was a great support – She was very understanding I felt like we had a lot in common and she made it OK for me to not feel OK.
