"Julie is kind and attentive - she's very easy to talk to and is able to give me explanations for things that have happened and how I'm feeling (this is very effective for me). I feel like she really understands me, which is so reassuring because for a long time I felt like no one did. She's taken the time to get to know me as a person, and not just another patient, and I feel we now have a strong bond. She then used this knowledge to help me understand myself as a person which has been so important in my recovery. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she's been truly brilliant - I would definitely not be where I am now without her help."

"Julie fully understood what I was going through and was able to look at the bigger picture to help me understand my challenges. She combined theory to give me tools to recognise when I need to make changes."

"Julie is very empathetic and warm and makes you feel at ease. Julie has an amazing ability to understand you and make you see for yourself, things you perhaps already knew but couldnít work out, and helped me discover things I hadnít realised. Julie is like a good friend that you go and see and always feel better when you leave her."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"I initially left a message for Julie to get help with the loss of my Dad, as I was really struggling to cope and it was massively impacting on my life. Julie then phoned me back and it was clear from the start that she was supportive, knowledgeable and truly understood the issues I was going through. We arranged a first session and it was clear that Julie was very insightful, not only about the process I was going through, but also the way in which my personality and drivers were impacting on my ability to cope. This insight meant that she adapted her approach specifically to my needs rather than use the standard practices that would generally be used to deal with bereavement. This was essential to my progress because I would not have progressed as well, if Julie hadn't spotted quickly that I needed a different form of counselling. I'm continuing counselling sessions with her now to explore some issues that arose during my bereavement counselling. I can't thank her enough for the positive impact she has had on my life and I cannot recommend Julie highly enough to those who are looking for some life changing support."

"Great listener, approachable, made me feel welcome and guided me in a way I felt comfortable with. Really helped me see things I have never seen before. Real eye opener and helped massively. Definitely recommend her services and will return if I need to talk in the future."
