It is important that you find a therapist who has the right qualifications and experience for your needs and who follows appropriate ethical standards. Here is some information about myself, so that you can make up your own mind if I am the right therapist for you.
I am an experienced psychotherapist working in private practice and based in the Bloomsbury district of central London. I work online as well as offering face to face therapy. Living and working with people facing difficulties has always been part of my life. My aim is to be able to support you, no matter who you are or what you are facing.
Juline’s principal qualifications
- Master of Arts (Distinction) in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling (Level 7)
- Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling (Level 7)
- Diploma in Counselling (Level 5)
- Specialist training in traumatic bereavement (Road Victims Trust)
- Specialist training in online counselling (80 hours)
- Master of Arts, University of Oxford.
My core service is counselling and psychotherapy for which I am fully qualified. My basic training was to Level 7 (Masters degree) and lasted five years. Initially, I trained for a year as a ‘person-centred’ counsellor and later for five years using the ‘psychodynamic’ model. At the same time, I completed specialist training in trauma-related work, in particular traumatic bereavement. Later, I completed an 80-hour course in online counselling. I add to my skills through continuous professional development (CPD).
I also provide coaching and mentoring on request. This can be a standalone service or as a natural element of counselling. I do not have formal coaching training. My experience comes from providing mentoring young offenders , coaching employees in various settings and life coaching generally.

About Juline: my counselling and psychotherapy experience
I am a fully qualified and work mostly with adults. This follows 30 years’ experience working in counselling, mentoring and providing individual support in various roles. As a result, I work with most issues, but have a special interest in working with adults who suffered, trauma, abuse or neglect in childhood. Please see the Questions page for more information on this.
My informal counselling experience began with providing peer-to-peer support for students. Later I did the same for employees in the City (the financial quarter of London) who were leading self-destructive lifestyles. Then, in the days before social media I set up and ran an online support group for people with gender identity issues.
My basic counselling skills were forged through living in a probation hostel for young men and providing support for homeless men with alcohol problems. As part of my training and post-qualification development, I was a volunteer counsellor for a charities supporting:
- women and men who have lost a pregnancy, baby or child, including through miscarriage or termination
- people facing domestic violence or abuse
- anyone who lost a family member in a road crash or been traumatised themselves
- young people from aged 15 years upwards.
About Juline: my work with different types of clients
As well as working with high-performing clients in the City, I have also lived in two communities based on social justice. These were centred on working for people who are in some way marginalised, disadvantaged or vulnerable. I have also worked for organisations supporting the following client groups in counselling or non-counselling roles:
|– people who are homeless||– welfare rights|
|– people dependent on drugs or alcohol||– housing rights|
|– perpetrators and survivors of domestic violence||– human right violations|
|– young offenders (8-21 years old)||– people with mental health problems|
