Hello my name is Julie. I am a BACP registered counsellor.
I trained at ReVision and have a Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling.
I have an Advanced Diploma in the Therapeutic and Educational Application of the Arts from the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education.
I work with your heartbreak and grief, sadness and loss, fear and anxiety, stuckness and numbness and your anger. Together we can explore finding meaning in your life and managing transitions such as relationships ending, mid life and getting older.
I welcome people of all sexualities and gender identities and those who are questioning how they identify.
How I work
There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen. Rumi
I work looking for your little voice, gut instinct, intuition, that has for so long been overlaid or silenced by guilt, shame, anger, anxiety. Sometimes addictions or disordered eating patterns have taken you far away from your intuition or true nature. Maybe you are afraid of your true self? Together we can go on a journey of exploration in a safe holding environment. I have made my own journey and understand that each goes at their own pace, in a confidential, safe space.
I also work soulfully. Soul expresses itself in different ways. Working soulfully is working with things that don’t necessarily make sense, so as well as talking we might work with images, poetry, story, drawing, colouring, dreams.
And I work relationally. This is not the same as being your auntie or your friend. This is working within the professional boundaries looking at how we impact each other. This awareness can help you to gain insight into how you are in the world, how you are impacted by others and how you view the world and your relationships.

We can arrange an initial session to enable us to meet and see if we would like to work together.
In the first session I will ask you what brings you to therapy. I may also ask you about your history and relationships. You can ask me questions about my counselling and we can talk about your expectations or fears. I will also explain my contract and how I work.
This work is most effective when client and therapist have a good relationship. If we are not a good fit, I can recommend other therapists for you to try.
