About me

Hi, I am Jules  and I am an integrative counsellor based in the King's Lynn area.

How counselling can help you:

Are you feeling anxious, stressed, over-thinking everything? Stuck in a dark place and unsure of the way out? If you are seeking some support to explore ways in which you can cope better with everyday life,  you have taken the biggest step forward by opening yourself up to counselling. If you are reading this, you have already completed the hardest part and started your journey towards a brighter place.

It is perfectly natural to feel a little nervous before embarking on therapy but I can assure you that we will take things at your own pace.  I would like to suggest that you view counselling as a 'talking therapy';  a process that will offer you tools to gain some control of your thoughts and improve your wellbeing. 

Our life experiences can never escape us but with a little empathy and support, we can learn how to make positive changes and move forwards. 

Choosing a counsellor:

The next stage is to choose your Counsellor. It is important that you feel comfortable and at ease with whoever you work with. This will allow you to share your thoughts and feelings more readily. To ensure the process is successful, we need to have some sort of connection. In the first instance, I offer a free chat over the phone, followed by an initial consultation at a reduced rate. This will allow you to decide if you would like to take things forward.

About me:

I hold a professional diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am a registered accredited member of the National Counselling Society; adhering to their professional and ethical guidelines. I am fully insured to work in this field and hold an enhanced DBS.

I am an integrative therapist, employing many different approaches to suit the clients individual needs. I use a person-centred approach at the foundation of all of my practice. This means I base my therapy sessions on empathy, openness and remaining non-judgemental. There will be other ways of working together that I may introduce as we get to know each other but the most important place to start is somewhere you will feel safe and relaxed enough to explore your own thoughts and feelings.

My experience includes working with clients presenting with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems, bereavement, substance addiction and more. For a full list of the areas I am able to work in, please see below.

What to expect:

Having had our first conversation over the phone and getting to know a little about each other, I can offer you a 30 minute face to face consultation at a reduced rate. This will allow you to talk about what support you are looking for and for me to explain what I can offer. It will also give us an opportunity to see if we are a ‘good fit’ to continue the counselling journey. If this works for us both, we can arrange further appointments to suit your individual needs. Some people may need a few sessions and others will need many more.  The process is totally led by you.

I am based in a comfortable building in the centre of King's Lynn, which is a safe and secure space for us to meet up.

Training, qualifications & experience

Training, qualifications and experience:

  • Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Level5)

My background has been in the health and social care sector for almost 30 years. I have worked in various hospitals, in residential care for young people and more recently in an NHS Mental Health setting.

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.
