About me

Are you feeling anxious, stressed, depressed or generally low in mood? These are common feelings which can make your life more difficult than it needs to be. Maybe you find yourself repeating unhealthy patterns and getting yourself into situations which make you unhappy time and again.

It can be difficult to know where to turn for help, or even to believe that things can get better. You might find that you are so weighed down by situations that you do not know where to start in order to make the changes which will ease things. Counselling can help with this, can help you see where you might make changes, challenge your current thinking and see if you can break the cycle and move forward with your life.

Together we will look at what is going on in your life now, examine patterns of thinking and behaving and see if there are areas where you can begin to do things differently. Sometimes this might involve looking back to past experiences to see how they shape some of your beliefs and behaviours now. This will be done at a pace that suits you, and you will decide what is important for you to talk about. I may offer insights or another perspective and we will explore together what it could mean.

During my work in mental health, I noticed the positive impact it had on people to be listened to, without judgement, and when they felt I had really heard what they were telling me. Many of the people I worked with had spoken to various professionals without ever having experienced someone truly listening to what they were saying.

This work, and some personal experiences, led me to begin my counselling training. I had discovered that one of the most important factors in supporting people had been my willingness to listen and help people work out what was best for them. At the beginning of my training, I continued to work in supporting roles and found more and more that it was my counselling skills which made the biggest, positive difference to people.

It can be difficult, and sometimes scary, to think about opening up and sharing painful memories and overwhelming feelings with a new person or a stranger. I provide a safe space, where you can talk about what you feel is important, at a pace that suits you. I will not rush you to share before you are ready and know that it takes time to build the trust and confidence needed. We will explore your feelings together and I will stay alongside you while we get to know each other.


A bit about me.

My work with Mind and The Olive Branch have given me experience and training to support you through your difficult times. I will work to help you understand why you feel anxious, or find yourself repeating situations which are not good for you. I will support you to uncover your answers and to work out how to do things in a way which works better for you. Many of my clients have suffered from depression, stress or other issues and I have supported them to understand why they feel like this and what they can do differently. In helping on a short-term basis, I can offer coping techniques which can support you in beginning a longer journey of looking at how you would like to make changes to improve your life.

As a counsellor, I will give you the space and support you need to explore your thoughts and feelings and to help you resolve your issues. I will provide you with a safe space, and will listen without judgement, and will work with you to find some insight into how to bring about positive changes in your life and relationships.


How can I help?

Anxiety or feeling as though something is not quite right is a common theme and something I work with a lot. We all have times when we feel anxious or unhappy, but if you are finding it difficult to shake these feelings off, it can help to get support in dealing with these.

Have you found yourself perhaps feeling alone or unable to cope? Counselling and psychotherapy can help you work through these times and I am here to support you in this.

I will listen to what is worrying you and support you to explore how you could feel more comfortable in yourself and your life.

We will work together at your speed and according to what feels important in the moment. We may look at situations which have been similar in the past and look at how you might do things differently.

What can I help with?

I work with a range of issues including:

Relationship issues
General unhappiness
Anger management
Low self-esteem
Low confidence
Worry and panic
Mental health concerns
I offer a space where you can say things you might not feel able to say elsewhere, or to explore areas of your life where you feel things aren't quite right but do not know how to change them. You will have the time to feel comfortable with sharing with me and I will offer support while you do this.


What to do next?

Finding the right counsellor for you is an important decision. I often suggest people meet 2 or 3 first to help you get an idea of who is the right person for you. No counsellor is going to be right for every person.

I offer either the choice of an initial telephone conversation or a face to face meeting of up to 30 minutes at no charge. We can find out a little bit about each other, and you can get an idea of what it would be like to work with me.

You can contact me by email, telephone or even my Facebook page in the first instance and we can go from there.


Practical Information

I offer either long-term or shorter, fixed-term counselling and psychotherapy depending on your need or circumstances, and work on a face to face or online basis.

Whilst I cannot offer parking at my premises, there are a number of public car parks very close by.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

As a Senior Accredited Registrant with NCS (National Counselling Society), I work within their guidelines for safe and ethical practice.

At times we may use more creative ways of working in order to support you to share your experiences when words are difficult. We will do this only if it feels right for you.

As a supervisor, I offer a collaborative working space and, to begin with, invite you to have a conversation with me about the shape you would like your supervision to take and what your requirements are. I am happy for you to be qualified or in training, and would encourage you to ensure you have plenty of supervision to cover your individual requirements.

As an ethical and interested counsellor, I am happy to work with counsellors who work with different modalities to my own as I feel this adds a depth and further dimensions to our work together. We will negotiate how you can get the best from our work together and we will negotiate what you need from me and our time together.

Therapies offered

  • Humanistic therapies
  • Integrative
  • Mindfulness
  • Transactional analysis

Further information


I feel privileged that clients feel safe to open up to me and these are some of the lovely words which have been given to me following our work together:

"I felt an immediate connection with Julie. She has been amazing: I am a different person from the one I walked in as!"

"Although I consider myself to be quite a private person, keeping my problems and worries to myself, talking to Julie was easy as she made me feel valid and listened to...She has given me skills and ability to manage my thoughts."

"Julie has enabled me to look at things in a more positive way and has helped me value myself."
