About me

This is about you...

...if you are feeling:

  • anxious
  • lost and alone
  • sad or depressed
  • grief
  • unsure which way to go
  • questioning yourself
  • rubbish about yourself

When you have these feelings it can seem like you are the only person in the world who does. It can be a very lonely feeling.

It is important to know you don't have to face these feelings alone.

I'm Julie, and I can offer support as you talk about what troubles you.

If you are looking for a warm, quiet, reflective and open minded person to talk to then please contact me for an appointment

I work from quiet and comfortable counselling rooms in Upton by Chester, easily accessible from West Cheshire, Wirral and North East Wales.

I have a special interest in issues around abuse and loss, particularly child abuse, rape, partner abuse, life limiting illness, bereavement, grief and companion animal loss.

I work with people like you. You don't have to feel you are the only person who feels like this, you are not alone.

Next steps

If I sound like the sort of person you could trust with your inner self please do contact me.

I am the only person who has access to messages left on my mobile, or my email account.

Please bear in mind email is not a secure method of communication for personally sensitive material.

If you phone and leave me a message please let me know if I can leave a message, or if someone else is likely to answer the ‘phone. This is to protect your confidentiality.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications are:

  • MA Clinical Counselling from the University of Chester (BACP Accredited course)
  • Cert HE Advanced Counselling Studies from the University of Plymouth

I am trained in the Person Centred Approach, a non-directive form of counselling which focuses on feelings and providing a safe environment where you can explore what is important to you. I work exclusively with adults (18+years).

I undertake regular continuing professional education to keep my skills and knowledge up to date and fulfill the BACP requirements for regular supervision.

I am working towards accreditation with BACP.

I have counselled at a hospice and a sexual abuse support charity, and specialise in loss and the affects of abuse.

I am non judgemental and respect the broad range of spiritual and religious beliefs, agnosticism and atheism.
