Guest Profile

Julia Keys

Registered Nurse, Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP, Masters qualification from the National Centre for Eating Disorders, BPS.

Julia has an extensive background in nursing, counselling and psychotherapy. Her specialist subjects are relationships, mental health issues and eating disorders. Julia was a school counsellor for five years, helping 11 to 18-year-old girls, many of which had problems related to their parent’s relationship issues. Julia is skilled in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. She has also worked at a specialist woman’s centre where referrals came from all walks of life.

Together with Jacqui, Julia works to help people with relationship issues. Julia’s aim has always been to enable people to move on with their lives in a positive manner. All too often she has seen the devastating impact that ill health, loss, betrayal and other events can have on a person’s self-esteem. Supporting women, men and families at a time of crisis has been paramount to Julia’s work. During the years, Julia has sat with many women whose self-esteem has suffered and a relationship was always at the core of the issue. Julia firmly believes that the most important relationship we have in life is the one we develop with ourselves. Julia has lived most of her married life to television presenter Richard Keys in the public eye and has dealt with many personal crises in the gaze of the newspapers and media. She knows all too well how hard it can be to present yourself externally to the world, while struggling immensely, internally. She also knows how frightening and lonely it can feel when you have been betrayed.
