Helping you grow...

Julie Gates DipCouns MBACP

Affordable Counselling for Adults & Young People using a creative and mindful approach 


I work with adults, young people (9-18) parents and carers, many whom are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, relationship problems or low self esteem. Most of us will experience at least one of these issues during our lifetime. My gentle and caring approach to counselling will help you to  explore your thoughts and feelings, find out what is holding you back and help you to find an inner strength to allow you to lead your best life. My new 'therapy room' tucked away in my back garden will be available from Mid July 22. A lovely space for you to leave your worries behind and experience some time for yourself.

My Approach

Integrative Counsellor

As a registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I am a Member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.  I spent 4/5 years training to become a counsellor after spending many years working in a support role for parents and families and before that I was a teacher.  I am qualified to Level 4 Diploma in Psychodynamic and Person Centred Counselling with an additional Level 5 Certificate in Counselling Children and Young People. My approach is client centred, I put a lot of emphasis on nurturing the 'therapeutic relationship' and I often incorporate mindfulness and creative strategies for best results.   I am considered gentle in my approach and always supportive, ensuring the needs of my clients are being met at all times.
