How are you coping at the moment?
Have you experienced a bereavement or loss? Are you feeling anxious much of the time? How are you coping with the stress of work and managing your home life?
Life can feel difficult and sometimes overwhelming. As we start to come out of the pandemic, stress levels are still high. You might be feeling anxious and helpless.
How can I help you?
Talking to a counsellor - someone outside of your family and friends - gives you space to say what you really want to say. To explore your feelings and how they are affecting your behaviour. To identify ways to help you cope with your feelings and move forward. To help you manage your stress and anxiety or work through relationship issues or grief.
Talking to a counsellor can help you to understand why you feel and act the way you do. I can give you a safe space to talk about how you really feel and give you a non-judgemental environment to work through your feelings and how you can make positive changes in your life.
I've been there. Counselling helped me with a number of issues that I thought I could deal with. Having the space to talk them through with a therapist enabled me to move forward. Find out more about me here
I am a qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP. I offer sessions online via a secure platform, and face to face counselling sessions in Gidea Park, Romford and in Brentwood, Essex.
I can help if you are struggling with any of the following:
Online and face to face counselling
I offer online counselling as well as face to face sessions in Gidea Park, Romford and in Brentwood, Essex.
In my experience, both types of counselling can be really effective.
Online counselling works well if you can't physically get to meet me. It has the advantage of no travel time so can be easier to fit into your busy day. I'm able to offer early morning appointments online, as well as daytime and evening slots.
Face to face counselling allows us to sit together in the counselling room. For some people, being able to sit together with a counsellor helps them to open up.
You can decide which type of counselling works best for you.
In Gidea Park, I am 5 minutes walk from Gidea Park Station and 10 minutes walk from Romford Station - both are on the TFL rail line. I also have off street parking. In Brentwood the practice is 5 minutes walk from Brentwood Station on the TFL rail line and parking is available on the street.
What my clients say
"I found our sessions, both in person and online, to be a calm and safe environment to talk about my worries. I liked the ‘free-flowing’ nature of the sessions and the option to talk about just one specific issue for the whole session, or to discuss a few. I felt the questions you asked helped prompt me to think about my worries from a different perspective. " February 2021
"Julie was very personable and warm, she put me at ease and I felt very comfortable with her. " March 2021
