Do you need help and don't know who to turn to?

Do you need to talk but don't know who to trust or how to put it into words?


If so you have come to the right place. You don't have to struggle on your own. I deal with a number of different issues including:







Childhood issues


Family issues




Relationship issues


Suicidal thoughts

Weight problems

Work issues........................

To name but a few!

My area of specialism is helping people to lose weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. As you are no doubt aware the reasons behind many people's weight problems are emotional - how many of you comfort eat? Do you know why you do it? Would you like me to help you work out the reason and to put an end to it? Are you tired of going from one diet to the next? It's not enough to go on yet another diet - if you don't understand the root cause you will simply return to your old eating habits. Depressing isn't it? Well the good news is that once you understand the reasons behind it you can get slim and stay slim and I would love to help you do that. So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to meet the new you? I know I am!


I offer a non-judgemental and supportive service to enable you to find peace and happiness and to reach your full potential. If you are in need of someone to talk to I can help. We all have our preferred methods of communication and with this in mind I offer face-to-face, online and telephone counselling, whichever suits your needs. At some point in our lives we all need someone to listen, to empathise and to provide support. Someone who is neutral and who we can talk to in confidence. Let me be that person for you.

I use an eclectic approach as each individual is different, each problem is different and we all respond differently to different methods.

My charges are £40 for a 50 minute session or £50 for a couple. Depending on the nature of the problem it may be necessary to have several sessions. I would normally recommend six weekly sessions to start with 

then together we would review the progress made to decide if further sessions are necessary. The final decision is always yours - I would never make anybody feel they should stop before they feel ready or

pressure anybody into continuing longer than they feel comfortable. As I know that sometimes we may come away from a meeting and suddenly remember something else we wanted to say or a question we should have asked I also invite you to feel free to telephone or email me between sessions at no extra cost. I cannot promise that I shall always be available at that precise moment but I do promise that I will always get back to you as soon as possible.

I would love to work with you to resolve your problems and help you move on. So pick up the phone or email to arrange an initial session - it's free and completely confidential so what have you got to lose - apart from that huge burden?


How are you today?

but after the loss of my husband I was 

desperate for somebody to talk through

my feelings of despair. Julie provided the

understanding and support that I needed"
