With over 12 years of clinical experience, I offer a safe space to help you find ways to cope with the inevitable suffering we can all face in life, and move towards living a more meaningful life. My work primarily involves offering individuals the time to feel listened to and heard, to explore and reconnect to our authentic inner self that may be deeply over-shadowed by fear, traumatic memories, self-doubt, difficult thoughts, worries, sadness, loss of motivation and/or feeling stuck in life. Alongside CBT and more traditional ways of working, I also offer the opportunity to work within spiritual dimensions of psychotherapy.

My expertise lies in assessing and treating individuals following one or more traumatic events, which can lead to a number of moderate to severe symptoms or diagnoses. These include; obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, chronic depression and anxiety, insomnia, low self-esteem and confidence, and, in some cases, physical disabilities including, chronic fatigue syndrome or ME. I also work with clients experiencing mild to moderate mental health difficulties, which do not have a traumatic origin, including, relationship difficulties and life challenges.

Hi, I'm Julie, and I am passionate about working with people who have experienced abuse or trauma, whether it be sexual, physical or emotional. When we experience trauma we lose part of who we truly are because of the after effects, such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, flashbacks and dissociation (when we feel distanced from our emotions or ‘spaced out’, as if we’re living on autopilot). I love helping people rediscover who they really are by creating an environment in which they feel safe and completely accepted. I don't analyse you but with careful listening will know what we need to work on.

It can be difficult to know where to start when feeling depressed or anxious. ​ I appreciate that many people become a little anxious at the prospect of an intense atmosphere in a counselling room. Thats not how I work though. My first aim is to help you relax. To see that yes, it is a 'safe and confidential environment for you to talk about anything that you want'. But there's no need for it to be a heavy and intense atmosphere either. I believe we can be practical, pragmatic and make some real changes without sacrificing empathy or compassion. I have over 20 years experience.

Welcome. I meet each individual as they are, I don’t find labels helpful. Each individual has a healthy, creative part, the part that is seeking healing. With gentle curiosity we learn to trust this part of you, it leads our process, and over time, as we work together, new possibilities are found. If you are struggling with feelings of meaninglessness, stuckness, being lost, angry, depressed, disconnected; or are having difficult memories, maybe traumatic; difficulties with physical pain recovery or prescription drug addiction, I am happy to meet with you and talk about how we can work together.

When we feel stuck, experience difficult emotions, or the challenges we have are distressing, finding a safe space to work through and move beyond what has led you to experience those difficulties can feel overwhelming in itself. By working together we look to create that space where you are safe to address your difficulties and make sense of the distress, while supporting you to feel confident to successfully move beyond them.

During all of our lives we have times when we find that life is harder to process, events are challenging to tolerate and find a path through. These are the times where we most need a safe place to talk – and these are also the times when it’s most difficult to reach out. We can be held back by fear, by negative experiences, or even by our own inner voice. I know how challenging it can be – and I aim to provide not only a safe space to speak, but also a wide range of experience and training which enables me to support you in the way that you most connect, and which feels most comfortable to you.
