Julie is a counsellor in Ellesmere Port and Chester

Looking for a counsellor in Ellesmere Port or Chester? Are you thinking of contacting me? I thought it would be nice if you knew a little about me.

I am in my fifties, grew up at the seaside and love sunshine and tea. My superpower is curiosity. I am quiet and open, and listen with my heart as well as my ears. I particularly work with people who have lost something precious to them; a person, an animal, a dream…Or who have experienced abuse and now question their own selves or their value. People who are hurting or confused and want something to change.

I completed my training as a counsellor at the University of Chester. My counselling placements during training were at a hospice and at a sexual abuse support charity.

I used to be an accountant although I realised I like people much more than numbers. I’ve been a hospital chaplain and it was this that led me to counselling. I’ve also worked for a major UK charity; been a shop assistant; a cinema usherette (yes, I had an ice cream tray). I’ve been made redundant twice.

My passion is to be alongside people as they navigate through the varied sea states of life, from flat calm to raging storm.
