Welcome to Julia Chapman Counselling Services Newcastle, South Shields & Jarrow

I’m Julia Chapman. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and I provide counselling services in Newcastle, South Shields and Jarrow.

I have over ten years' experience in providing counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for a wide range of issues and I have a special interest in working with anxiety disorders.

I provide therapy for people who are 18 or over. I work with people who refer themselves for counselling and I also work with employees who are referred by their employers. I provide employee counselling services for a number of organisations based in the North East.

Appointments in Newcastle, South Shields or Jarrow. Telephone and online appointments are also available.

I am also a qualified clinical supervisor and I provide supervision for trainee counsellors and newly qualified and experienced practitioners.
