We all desire meaningfulness in our lives and we usually seek out the healing of therapy at times when life may feel challenging, difficult, directionless or overwhelming in some way. Life contains setbacks and suffering which can feel painful and we may develop strategies to avoid and bypass such feelings. The process of therapy is to gently explore in the present the way we feel about ourselves and our lives and to bring embodied awareness to what obscures the inherent wholeness at our core.

Are you exhausted by the effort it takes to manage your feelings? Do you want to feel safe? Do you wonder who you are or why you feel bad? Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic disorders or relationship problems, there is good news. Research has shown that a good relationship with a counsellor/therapist can really help. My approach is to help you understand both 'your hidden self' (the unconscious) and find everyday tools and tasks that can help you change your life. I hope I can show you that all the wisdom and creativity you need to enjoy your life is within reach.

Are you looking for a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore difficult emotions and experiences at your own pace? Sharing and talking about our problems with another person is the oldest form of medicine; it can help us feel acknowledged and heard. I believe we are the experts of our own life as we are the only ones that have lived it. Feeling genuinely heard, and being treated as an equal and unique individual throughout the psychotherapy process, creates an environment where acceptance and positive change can grow.

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.

My clients are at the heart of every session, creating a welcoming, safe and relaxed atmosphere where communication can flow freely and openly. The most important thing is that you are comfortable, at ease and feel able to talk. I aim to help you see your challenges more clearly and to face the problems with less anxiety and tension. It can be an opportunity to think and speak your truth without fear of judgement. I am trained to incorporate techniques associated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Guided Visualisation, Psycho-dynamic Therapy and Transactional Analysis amongst others into my work.

The approach I first trained in and like to use the most is an integrative model called the Relational approach. This approach incorporates both humanistic and psychodynamic elememts which means it retains the warmth of the humanistic models which focus on empathy and building trust, and the Freudian concepts of the unconcious mind and transference. I work best with clients who are willing to explore how they relate to people, by examining what is going on in our relationship during therapy. I really enjoy working with clients who have issues around relationships and attachment, and find this work both interesting and rewarding.

Change, and uncertainty are part of our lives. You may have reached a crossroads in your life and are not sure which path to take? Maybe you have an important decision to make and need some help exploring it. Perhaps you find yourself pushing people away in relationships, or feel stuck and have been putting things off? You may have a feeling of loss or have experienced loss and are unsure how to deal with it. Do you feel alone with your struggles, and in need of support and reassurance? Feeling unsure about reaching out to friends, family or colleagues is very common.

Do you sometimes feel lost or unsure about what your purpose is? Why you are here? Why life has happened as it did so far? Are you struggling to get through a tough life transition, loss or grief? Are you at times not sure what you have to offer to the world; what you are meant to do or what you really want? Do you find it difficult to trust others or are wondering how to improve your relationships with others? I offer a safe, unbiased space to talk that is removed from your direct family and friends. This freedom to speak openly can be helpful when trying to talk through tricky and uncomfortable feelings.

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.
