About me

Hello. Are you looking for someone to talk to? Someone who 'hears' you? Someone to help you work through a problem?

My name is Julie, and I am a qualified counsellor. I am originally from the United States, and I have a BSc in Psychology and a Masters degree from the US. I also have a level 4 diploma in integrative counselling in the UK, and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked with children, families and adults in both the US and UK. I now work exclusively with adults.

I have worked in schools, prisons, local authorities, a university, within the NHS's IAPTUS service, with NHS medical staff and with hoarders in a housing association. I also have experience writing social care policies for local authorities within the UK. 

People come to counselling for a variety of reasons. Sometimes talking your problem out with a qualified professional can help. 

I can offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to speak about your problems openly and honestly. I specialise in short term working (1-12 sessions) and have extensive experience working with clients to uncover hidden thoughts, feelings and emotions that often link to experiences from their past, whether from childhood or a more recent event. 

If you think counselling could be right for you, please feel free to contact me. Initially, I offer a 20 min free introduction to see if counselling is right for you and if I am the right therapist for you. If we agree to continue working together, I will invite you to book your first session. At the moment, I am only offering sessions through telephone or online, you can choose which option is right for you. I also offer weekday, evenings and weekend appointments, so we can find a day and time that best suits your schedule. 

I can help clients who have experienced trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, loneliness, life changes and difficulties within relationships.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
