To many, following their dreams often stay a dream. This is because anxiety, dread, low self-esteem, depression, and other emotions often get in the way of living the life we want. As a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I have the skills and experience to help others emerge out of emotions that trap them. Backed by 12 years of experience working in the NHS as a therapist, I have a wealth of knowledge and skills to significantly help people within a short span of time. I’m compassionate, encouraging, and create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere where my clients can be honest and unafraid to talk about things.

My name is Julie and I love living in the city, the hustle and bustle of life and human connection. I worked in hospitality management for 25 years and understand the pressures of working full time while running a business and a home. I believe that therapy should be an open space for us to come together and work out what is going on and how you can make some changes to make life better.

If anxiety is getting in the way of you living your life the way you want to, we can work together to change that. Anxiety can creep up on us and there doesn't need to have been a big trigger for it to have a real impact on our lives. I work with people to overcome a wide range of anxiety based difficulties, such as general worry, phobias, panic attacks, obsessions and compulsions and PTSD. Cognitive behavioural therapy can help you understand your anxiety, become less fearful of it and find ways to tackle it. Therapy can also help you to recognise what you are already doing that is helpful - there is always more than you think!

Do you sometimes feel different? Or that what you go through is unique only to you? perhaps you believe things that happen to you are all your fault? Or you struggle in relationships? I understand the need to feel part of the world, not 'messed up' - we are social creatures who often care what people think. And we have a natural desire to be the best person we can be - something to be cultivated. The conflict to fit in, whilst being true to yourself - creates tension, anxiety, depression, poor coping strategies. Plus the modern pressures of life rarely let us 'just be'. The process of therapy can resolve these deep conflicts.

Sometimes life can feel like a struggle, a struggle that you feel alone with. It doesn't matter how many people are around you or not, the feeling remains the same, isolation and a lack of support. Interactions with others may not feel authentic, they may bring up feelings of anxiety, a lack of safety or even feelings of deficiency or self-blaim. And the most confusing part is that your experience of yourself alone, or with others, makes little sense.

Overcome your Past & Fears, Find Self-Compassion & Resilance, and Flourish. The search for a contented and satisfying life is not easy. It’s even more difficult if you’re wrestling with a negative inner voice or baggage from your past. Perhaps you’ve forgotten what real joy or feeling safe is like? I understand. It’s not your fault. It’s because you have a tricky human brain with a sensitive threat system, that can tie you up in knots trying to cope.
