About Julie

I am BACP Accredited Counsellor and EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner based in Old Costessey, Norwich, Norfolk, working from my home (NR8). I can also offer appointments in NR2, central Norwich. I offer face to face, telephone and video appointments Monday to Thursday.

I can help you discover, resolve and manage aspects of your life that you find difficult or presently overwhelming. Talking in a safe therapeutic space can help you find clarity within, reaching a better understanding which is empowering; allowing you to find your true self and resources which sets you free from mental and emotional turmoil.

I have been successful in helping people overcome their difficulties since 2008. Being a therapist is my life purpose, helping you to overcome your struggles. I have sat in the client's chair and understand what it's like undergoing counselling. How anxiety provoking and challenging it is starting counselling, but also how empowering the journey of self discovery is. That's where the name Freedom Within Counselling came from, it's how I felt overcoming my difficulties.
