Hello. I offer in-person counselling to children and young people up to the age of 19. Sessions are tailored to each young person's individual needs, depending on their age, situation and developmental needs, and what they are drawn to. My areas of speciality include: anxiety, depression, emotional regulation, trauma, low self-esteem, working with ADHD and ASD, school and family-related issues. I aim to work collaboratively with parents and families when appropriate and, in all cases, I am led by my clients’ needs and wishes and - importantly, they learn to trust that any emotion or feeling is welcome in our space together.

You may feel your problems are too small or insignificant and may find it hard to understand why things seem so difficult but I am particularly equipped to work with those who really want to understand what might be underlying their current feelings of depression or anxiety.

Hi, I'm Julie, and I am passionate about working with people who have experienced abuse or trauma, whether it be sexual, physical or emotional. When we experience trauma we lose part of who we truly are because of the after effects, such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, flashbacks and dissociation (when we feel distanced from our emotions or ‘spaced out’, as if we’re living on autopilot). I love helping people rediscover who they really are by creating an environment in which they feel safe and completely accepted. I don't analyse you but with careful listening will know what we need to work on.

Are you feeling stuck or like you have lost touch with who you truly are and where you really wanted to be at this stage in your life? Do you feel like you have to mask or hide your true feelings in order to fit in? Have you ever been humiliated or shamed for just being you? Or have you been taught to always put others first and not had the space to express your own feelings? If you're not fulfilling your potential or are at a transitional phase in your life and wish to make some changes, therapy can help you unravel how you got to where you are today and move forward fully embracing your authentic self.

During all of our lives we have times when we find that life is harder to process, events are challenging to tolerate and find a path through. These are the times where we most need a safe place to talk – and these are also the times when it’s most difficult to reach out. We can be held back by fear, by negative experiences, or even by our own inner voice. I know how challenging it can be – and I aim to provide not only a safe space to speak, but also a wide range of experience and training which enables me to support you in the way that you most connect, and which feels most comfortable to you.

Is life feeling overwhelming?...Are you feeling stressed, anxious or stuck in a rut? Sometimes life can feel tough, painful or confusing! At times we understand why these feelings have arisen such as through bereavement, family, relationship or work problems, but often we may ask: ‘Why am I feeling this way?’ Or we may just know that things are ‘not right’. These feelings will have a big impact on our relationships, work or ability to enjoy even the simplest things in life which can lead us to feel alone or isolated! Now is the time to stop struggling alone in the hope that things will get better on their own, and make a change!

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
