About me

My name is Julie I am a qualified person centered counsellor. I am a member of British Association of Practitioners and Psychotherapists. I offer a free initial 30 minute consultation after which you are under no obligation to continue therapy with me.  I have rooms at Walkden and Orrell in the Wigan area.

It is very daunting to have counselling for the first time, just to find the building, walk -in and meet the counsellor, that is why I offer a free half hour consultation with no obligation because to me the most important thing is that you feel at ease and accepted and are able to talk with me openly, that you do not have the feeling you are being judged or bossed about, your worries trivialized or dismissed, for the counselling process to work you need to feel that you are being really listened to by a genuine person.Although I am person centered taught I work with a range of therapies and techniques, I respect that each client is an individual so I prefer to use an integrative approach tailored to the individual, their needs and situation etc. I feel I am a warm, non judgmental person and am able to help a client feel safe, valued  and really listened to without fear of judgement

I have extensive experience working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. Clients who had suffered past trauma and issues that were now having an impact on their daily life.  I u. I have helped clients who have been subjected to abuse, both physical and mental. I have also  had experience helping clients who have relationship issues such as divorce/separation anxiety. I have helped couples and families being a mediator of sorts,  which can help partners start to share and communicate once again in a neutral environment.

Further information


I have also researched in depth and attended seminars on different personality disorders. I understand how hard it can be for a person to overcome having been for instance the victim of narcissist abuse and manipulation. Having this knowledge I do not trivialize how difficult moving on can be. there are so many thoughts and scenarios that may have happened that as a client you could be finding it hard to come to terms with. Many people who have suffered from this type of abuse and other painful events understandingly can be very scared to confront their feeling and use avoidance tactics to stop the pain. I feel I can help a client come to their own realizations and resolve in a safe environment in their own time without being forced in any way, to enable them to live a happier more fulfilled life.
