Counselling and Back to Nature Outdoor Therapy 


"Hi, I'm Julia of Charlie J Counselling. Being here for you is important, whether you’re wanting help for a specific issue or just need a listening ear “. 


Charlie J Counselling was founded in memory of my late father, and I am proud to be a small personal practice, providing you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to explore what you need.

I am able to support you with personal difficulties around mental health and well-being, including depression, anxiety and trauma.

Meet Julia – What I offer you

My specialist skills are in supporting people through, anxiety, bereavement and loss, people who have experienced domestic abuse, sexual abuse, and work related-trauma.

I am trained and deliver pre-trial therapy for witnesses who may give evidence in the Court system. 

All the services I offer you come from my own lived, personal and professional experience, helping me have an empathic understanding of your situation. 

I know whatever our personal circumstances, daily life can be a tremendous struggle. Taking time for self-care, and being kind to yourself can be difficult,

My non-directive style allows you to keep control, there is no worry about being assessed or evaluated. The right support is important and that is why I offer a free no obligation 30-minute telephone or online consultation to see if you feel comfortable with me and what I offer is right for you. I will listen to you with respect and without judgement.

I also provide one -one support for young people aged 13-25, ‘blue light services’ and front-line care staff.  I am Gender and Neuro  Diverse friendly.

Founder of CJC & Counsellor

Offering you over 20 years experience from my personal and professional life, I have first-hand experience of how trauma and loss can affect our lives and our own self-worth, resulting in anxiety and low-confidence. I turned to counselling for help. I experienced how supportive counselling can be, how it can assist people to turn their lives around. This was my inspiration to become a counsellor.


I am close to and provide counselling services and out door therapy in and around, Leeds, Otley, Skipton, Bradford, Ilkley, Harrogate, the Craven District and rural surrounding areas.

How can counselling help you?

Counselling can help you understand yourself and your behaviors better, providing an opportunity for you to talk about your problems, challenges, and difficult feelings in a safe, confidential environment. I will listen to you with respect and without judgement.

Counselling can help you to express and explore your thoughts and feelings about what is worrying you and make some sense of your responses and experiences. This can help you to feel more settled, confident and in control, empowering you to find a way to a more positive future. 

I am a person-centred Counsellor


Person-centred therapy harnesses the client's natural self-healing process. Given the right relationship with the therapist, clients can decide what they want to do with their lives.

To this end, person-centred therapy is a personal growth model also known as non-directive therapy.

Person - centred therapy is the core of all my therapeutic work.   

I am a member of BACP- the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I work in accordance with ethical framework of good practice.

I have full professional indemnity insurance and hold a DBS enhanced child and adult certificate.

What Clients Have Said

"I couldn’t ask for a better counsellor, you’ve helped me learn so much about myself. You have helped me believe that I am worthy of living and worth the fight. Thank you, Julia”

Back to Nature


Counselling therapy outdoors in the natural environment can involve walking, discovering nature, or simply just sitting outside in the local park or your own back garden. 


Therapy outdoors gives you increased freedom to express yourself, a greater connection with the therapist and the natural environment. Discover yourself in the peaceful tranquil Yorkshire Dales with back to nature outdoor therapy.
