About me

Hi there,

Do you feel overwhelmed?

Is anxiety or depression preventing you from living the life you want?

Have you lost your spark and do you feel like you are running on empty?

Well let me help. I am Julie, a counsellor committed to helping you begin the journey towards feeling good, living life with more joy, meaning and fulfilment. I am passionate about helping clients in all stages of life, from adolescence through to retirement, to feel happier, more confident and empowered in their lives.

I will provide you with a caring, safe and nurturing space where you can share what is troubling you and we can work together to help you make changes in your life that feel right to you; to lessen anxieties, boost confidence and live life with more joy and purpose.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I use a range of different counselling models to best suit the individual needs of my clients. I use some CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques, Solution Focused work as well as Mindfulness and Present Moment approaches. It all depends on your needs and which approach I feel will be a good 'fit' for you.

I regularly work with anxiety, depression, self-harm, bereavement, relationship issues, eating disorders, poor body-image and anger management. Low self-esteem and poor confidence are areas in which I have a particular interest. If you hold yourself back in life because of these issues I might be able to help. I have a lot of experience in helping clients boost their self-esteem and feel more confident.

I also regularly counsel young people and students in my practice and have experience working with adolescents in both American and British schools so if you are a young person experiencing anxiety or sadness relating to school or university concerns, academic pressures, relationship issues or bullying, then please get in touch. I might be able to help.

If you think counselling might be right for you, I would love the opportunity to work with you and offer the support, empathy and encouragement you need as you begin the process of making changes, moving forward and becoming the best version of yourself.

You matter. Your health and happiness matters. It is time to make yourself a priority. Please get in touch.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
