More About Julia

Founder of CJC & Counsellor

"As well as establishing my own small private practice, I provide support for local and National  bereavement counselling services."

Offering you over 20 years of 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 and how it can assist people to turn their lives around. This was my inspiration to become a counsellor.

The right support is important, and that is why I offer a free, no-obligation 15-minute telephone or online consultation to see if you feel comfortable with me and if what I offer is right for you. I will listen to you with respect and without judgment.

I am close to and provide counselling services and Outdoor Therapy in and around Otley, Skipton, Leeds, Ilkley, Harrogate, the Craven District, and rural surrounding areas.
