Julie Dods Integrative Counsellor

I am a fully qualified counsellor with a professional diploma in therapeutic counselling. My experience over the last 10 years has been mostly supporting adults of all ages in bereavement and palliative care.


Why counselling?


Life can get in the way. Often there doesn’t seem time to absorb what has happened or how it has affected us. We are naturally resilient but it is hard to see ourselves sometimes when we are stuck. Counselling provides a safe space to slow down and talk through whatever is troubling you to help improve your well-being.


How can I help?


Sometimes we find ourselves in situations not of our choosing. Having another person to bounce things off can be freeing from persistent troubling thoughts and feelings. I offer you my full professional support without judgement and a promise of confidentiality so together, step-by-step, you can find the best way forward for you.


I believe counselling can bring about personal growth to anyone who is curious about themselves and it can enhance some of the most rewarding change for the better. You are worth it!.


In our initial session we can discuss your needs and what you would like to get from your therapy. This also provides you the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you.

As a member of the British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP) I agree to follow their code of ethics for good practice.

I have insurance and hold an up to date enhanced DBS/ CRB.


My varied approach is drawn from different therapies. This means I can ensure that when we work together, it will be in a way that best suits you.

My main experience is with working with grief and loss with families and patients at a local Hospice. I also work in other areas including:

  • Anxiety
  • Abuse
  • Bereavement
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Loneliness
  • Low self esteem
  • Redundancy
  • Relationships

Should you choose to contact me, I will offer you my full professional support to help you make changes towards a greater sense of happiness and fulfilment in your life.
I will provide a free 10 minute telephone consultation to discuss any questions you may have.
