About me

Hi, my name is Julie and I am a qualified counsellor, trained in Person Centred Therapy. I offer my counselling services to adults of all ages, young people, and children.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and I work within their extensive ethical framework.

I am passionate about working alongside people and being able to support them through difficult or distressing periods in their lives. As a counsellor, I count it a privilege that this is exactly what I get to do!

What is 'Counselling' and how can it help?
Counselling is a talking therapy that gives you the space to talk through personal difficulties, thoughts and feelings, in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.
Some of the more common issues that people may bring to counselling include relationship issues, bereavement, anxiety, depression, abuse, unresolved anger and anger management. These are just a few among many issues that clients have brought to me over the years.

Through my time as a counsellor, I have been invited into the world of many clients, each truly amazing and unique in their own way. I have shared with them in their deepest darkest of places, and celebrated with them in their joys and triumphs.
As a person centred counsellor, I believe that recognising the value in each client and offering them an environment free from judgement or opinion, is a truly freeing environment that makes it easier to talk openly and honestly. This freedom so often releases a fresh sense of perspective and a feeling of strength in their own ability to work, and grow through difficult experiences.

Training, qualifications & experience

Throughout my time as a counsellor, I have gained experience working with adults, young people, and children, helping them through a wide range of issues.

I have previously worked in the voluntary sector as part of an organisation that offers counselling to adults, and another which works with children, taking counselling into schools (Place2Be)

Alongside my private practice, I currently work in schools counselling children who are struggling with varying issues such as low self esteem, worry and anxiety, bullying, anger issues, and self harm.

This can give us both an idea of how we may work together, and whether counselling feels right for you at this time.
Should you feel comfortable and ready to work together at this point, our following sessions will last for 1 hour (or 50 minutes for children) and cost £40.
