Just a little insight into me as a person and the work I provide for individual’s.
I use my life experiences in harmony with my professional approach to deliver my services.
Using my twenty year experience as a Registered MBACP counsellor, I provide a person-centred approach that goes beyond the textbooks, to support people through the challenges of their lives. I treat each person as an equal. I meet my clients with respect and use a non-judgemental empathic approach which promotes trust in the relationship. This quickly forms a solid foundation for us to be able to work together, throughout our relationship.
I meet each individual where they are in their lives and we work from there, in a safe and confidential setting. The way I work has proven to be successful and I have a high percentage of clients that have used the tools I provide to change their lives. We all have the potential within to live a healthier lifestyle. I believe in them which encourages them to believe in themselves in finding a healthier way of life which works for them.
Living in the Moment with self awareness, is my natural way of life, so I have the ability to help clients to focus on living in the moment and I provide the tools to help them to be able to do this.
I can offer something quite revolutionary to people who want to live a healthier, balanced lifestyle. It is something that could enhance anyone’s life, but we are distracted by our everyday struggles that we have no time for our own inner potential for love and joy in living.
Living in the present moment can be an opportunity to live life more fully aware, experiencing more love, trust, joy and peace of mind. The way to do this is quite simple – experiencing ourselves in the moment…. rather than being distracted by the worries and duties that commit us to tomorrow. Accepting ourselves in the moment… rather than the continuous struggle against negativity and the compulsion for improvement of ourselves and our lives.
How much we do this is a personal decision for all of us, but I believe we should all devote at least a few hours a week to experiencing the joy of this present moment. The benefits come in increased energy and ability to be effective in our relationships and work.
It is a paradox: The best way to improve ourselves and our lives is dropping the struggle to do this, and to allow acceptance in the moment.
The surfacing of repressed feelings and emotion is one of the barriers that most people come across when moving into their “here and now” experiencing. Accepting, sharing and expressing these feelings and emotions is part and parcel of healing being more energised being more capable.
It does help to spend regular time with someone who has already had this inner revolution happen in their lives.
I can offer one to one, group work and individual supervision to individuals who is interested in developing self-acceptance and experiencing themselves in the present moment.
MY SPECIALIST AREAS ARE:
Bereavement and Loss – I have worked in this field for many years and have experience of being able to help clients process their shock and eventually accept their loss and incorporate living in the moment which is a healthier way of living. I empower clients to find their inner peace surrounding their loss and encourage them to use the tools I provide to enhance their quality of life. I empower my client’s to continue their commitment to themselves, when we have finished working together, they have the tools for life to live a healthier lifestyle.
Living in the Moment Workshops – This is a programme that is put together by my own hard won self awareness which has taught me to live in the moment. This programme is well thought through and I provide the self help booklet and tools to be able to live in the moment. This workshop has changed lives and enhances the quality of peoples lives. The aim is to be who you are and not who others want and expect you to be. It is about becoming your own Best Friend and making the commitment to learn all about you. This workshop brings you the freedom to become aware of how to Accept Self and Live in the Moment with a healthier approach to your life.
Self-Awareness is key to a healthy relationship with self.
PTSD – Inner Child Trauma/Healing – I am able to hold a client in a safe space, through their trauma and provide the tools to help them process and move through their trauma. I encourage them to live in the moment, which brings healing to the person which results in a healthier way of living.

ONE DAY AT A TIME
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry – two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is YESTERDAY with all its mistakes and cares, faults and blunders. YESTERDAY has passed forever beyond our control, all the money in the world cannot bring back YESTERDAY.
We cannot erase a single word we said, for YESTERDAY has gone!
The other day that we should not worry about is TOMORROW with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and poor performances. TOMORROW’s sun will rise either in splendour or behind a mask of cloud – but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in TOMORROW, for it is yet unborn.
That leaves us only one day – TODAY! Anyone can fight the battles of one day, it is only when you add the burdens of these two eternities, YESTERDAY and TOMORROW, that we break down, it is not the experience of TODAY that drives one mad – it is the remorse and bitterness for something that happened YESTERDAY, or the dread of what may happen TOMORROW.
Testimonial from RW for JR Counselling
When people seek help, one of the primary reasons is to find a safe space in which to feel supported. Often this is quite limiting, 6-8 sessions are usually the norm before the individual is sent on their way to use the tools given. This may be enough for some people, but for others with deep seated mental health issues, whether this be trauma, grief or such like this time can feel a drop in the ocean.
Julie Rogers provides a therapeutic system that takes the healing journey to a much more in-depth level that is much more person centred, expansive and invaluable to those who go through it.
Julie’s system has really resonated with me. The individual counselling felt like a journey we took together in which her gentle guidance and support created a healing foundation on which I was able to express myself and explore my history in a safe space.
We then moved on to the Living in the Moment course, this brought several people together who shared relatable stories in which we were able to support each other, whilst being guided by Julie’s vast knowledge and experience in the field. Her team of volunteers gave invaluable insights, having gone through the process themselves and sharing their own experiences. We were able to learn new techniques, explore different perspectives and feel less isolated.
Once this was completed, we became part of a peer support group. The whole experience has been a unifying, healing process. The group was monitored by herself and her team and has been a way for us to offload the difficulties we experienced during the week, which has been amazing in bringing everything we have learned and put into practice. I highly recommend being part of Julie’s process to healing, I am grateful to have met her and feel I have gained so much from it all.
All your Support
Thank you for all your support within the last year.
The Living in the Moment and Peer Support Group have been amazing but most of all the “One to One’s” we had. You patiently and empathetically listened and gave me “life tools” that I can take away with me for the rest of my life!
You have showed me how to let all my emotions and feelings out on paper in my journal in a beautiful way and to also remember that “I am safe and ok”.
I have a different view of life and death since I met you and I want to thank you so much for the Counselling that you have given me, your counselling is “real life” not just some text book jargon. I am so glad that I was referred to you by Live Well Kent.
I know whatever you do, you will do well because you have a unique service to offer your clients.
I will certainly be recommending you to whoever needs your services.
MH – Client
In October 2017, I had a complete breakdown, so bad I couldn’t speak I couldn’t function, I had to be looked after by my dad, I was 53. I had been running a successful garden centre for four years and had 16 years of experience running garden centres as a plant manager, so for me this was a shock. I didn’t want to live like this. I told my GP this, “if this is now my life, I don’t want to be here”. She put me on Prozac( high dose) and sleeping tablets and also drugs to numb the awful anxiety attacks. I had 15 panic attacks one morning before even getting out of bed, I was an empty shell of a person.
I contacted Shaw Trust and spoke to a navigator who asked me in for a chat and I joined Julie Rogers LITM course, it was the best thing I done.
The transformation was astonishing, I knew that she understood what I have been through, I realised with her help, how I needed to address my needs first and heal my inner child.
Over the coming weeks I started meditation and yoga which I still practice now, this was the start of my healing journey. Julie Rogers was the start of the new ME.
After year’s of abusive partner’s, I started to live on my own supporting myself, I went back to a part time job, and I started my own community garden with four other sufferers and became a charity in 2019. I am running “Blossoms of Hope” charity with three other ladies. In July 2021, I had designed a show garden for the world famous, Hampton Court Flower RHS in Central London – it was a big achievement!!
In only a couple of years I had achieved this, but Julie Rogers was the switch. She made me believe in myself. I owe her so much, I got my life back, better and stronger than before. I still do my journal, my meditation and my yoga, and I have her heart stones that she gave me.
None of this would not have been possible without Julie Rogers and her course.
