About me

How are you?

Think again, how are you really?

In life, we often ignore how we actually feel and just “get on” with it. Quite often the parts of us that we ignore can impact our lives on a daily basis without us really noticing it, causing problems and issues that seem confusing. Does this sound like you?

Or you may know exactly what the issues are but feel like you don’t know how to sort them out or where to start. I can help.

Each of us can feel this way at any point in our lives and we may find dealing with life's challenges alone overwhelming. When talking to friends or family, however close, isn't enough, talking to a qualified counsellor can help.

My name is Julie, and I am a professional counsellor with years of experience in helping clients discover their hidden potential, empowering them to change and grow.

No matter the reason for seeking therapy, I know from experience, that finding the right counsellor for you can seem daunting.

I offer a safe, compassionate, confidential, and non-judgemental space in which to gently explore and process difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences. I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is at the heart of successful therapy, and this is at the core of how I work.

I create a supportive, caring environment in which I will help you to become more self-aware, empowering you to make changes in your life for your own personal growth.

Through our work together I aim to support you in discovering shifts in perspectives, enabling a sense of new possibilities and well-being. This will help to find a new way forward to feeling more comfortable, less anxious and more connected to yourself and those around you. You will gain greater understanding of yourself, making sense of thoughts and feelings and how they may impact you and your behaviour.

My aim is to help you feel more you! Whatever that might look like.

I am based in Kintbury, working from a lovely therapy room in my garden surrounded by beautiful countryside.

There is plenty of parking space.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework.

My fees are £50 per 50-minute session for daytime sessions before 5pm and £55 per session for evening sessions. Sessions are on a weekly basis.

Please feel free to contact me by phone or email.

07787 556402 - please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
