Are you exhausted by the effort it takes to manage your feelings? Do you want to feel safe? Do you wonder who you are or why you feel bad? Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic disorders or relationship problems, there is good news. Research has shown that a good relationship with a counsellor/therapist can really help. My approach is to help you understand both 'your hidden self' (the unconscious) and find everyday tools and tasks that can help you change your life. I hope I can show you that all the wisdom and creativity you need to enjoy your life is within reach.

I offer a safe, caring and confidential space to help you feel emotionally supported to explore whatever is troubling you, as sometimes issues can be difficult to work through on your own, whether that is building resilience, reducing anxiety, grappling with loss, understanding relationships or identifying triggers of uncomfortable feelings, for example. Giving yourself the space to reflect upon your life can help you to find clarity of thought, feel more grounded, increases your ability to find solutions and be able to move forward more confidently.

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.

Therapy offers insight and understanding helping you work towards an awareness of the self. It gives the opportunity to discover inbuilt defence mechanisms that perhaps no longer serve the person you have become as a result of the traumas we all experience in life. Counselling can be a quiet, safe space to breathe and think about your life. Who you are, where you are going and what you wish to gain. It can be a space to grieve the losses you have experienced in your life and the changes that happen throughout your life.

It can feel daunting to explore whatever issues you are facing. You may be going through a life transition or feel stuck in a loop of old patterns in need of change. You might be experiencing anxiety, grief and loss, or a past trauma might be calling for attention. Or looking to reconnect with your creativity, unblock your flow. I believe in the importance of a collaborative, co-created therapeutic relationship to explore the challenges and possibilities that you bring. We are wired for human connection, and evidence shows that it is the quality of this relationship that is the most important ingredient.
