About

Julie 

Hi, I’m Jules. 

 

My Values

I believe our past and present experiences can significantly contribute to the way we feel about ourselves and the world we live in. I have always felt passionate about the development and growth of the whole person. 

 

As an integrative trained counsellor, I can support you on your journey of self-awareness through a variety of approaches and interventions. My perspective is that we are all unique and the support I can offer will be tailored to your specific needs. 

 

My aim is to help my clients understand themselves better, cope with their difficulties, and manage their experiences as part of their personal growth and individual journey.  Life takes everyone on a different path, with unique and individual experiences. I aim to provide people with the emotional tools they need to support themselves to help them feel more positivity about the path ahead and that they are able to help themselves navigate through difficult times. 

 

Currently, I work in a school as a counsellor, as well as in my own private practice, and have been working with STARS Dorset for the last three years. In these different roles, I am able to help many different people and age groups along their journey, navigating how they feel about themselves and the world they live in. As I specialise in trauma-informed counselling and counselling for children and young people, I am well suited to helping people with a range of emotional needs. 


 

I have worked with children from age six as well as teenagers and adults. I have always found working with young people rewarding and inspiring. With much of the experience I have acquired throughout my career as a teacher as well as a counsellor and as an experienced teacher and mindfulness practitioner, I am very capable of creating resources and delivering training either on a one-to-one basis, in small groups or as a curriculum for whole classes. 

 

 I understand that people's lives may be busy and you may wish to access support flexibly for which I can offer online sessions if that would be preferable to face to face. 

 

If you would like to know more about my approach to therapy, my professional experience, or just to get to know me better as a therapist, please feel free to contact me.
