Hello & Welcome!
I’m Julie, and I provide individual counselling to struggling teens and to adults who are having difficulties coping with the inevitable ups and downs of life. I believe that even the most confident and capable of us can sometimes get stuck in challenging circumstances and unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that unwittingly take us away from what matters most. My approach to counselling can help you learn new ways of understanding, relating to and coping with your painful experiences and encourages you to take intentional steps towards a rich and meaningful life.
A Ship is always safe at the shore, but that is not what it is built for.
I’m a Victoria-based counsellor and certified life coach with over 15 years of clinical counselling experience working with teens and their parents as well as with adults. Working together, I can help people learn to cope differently with a variety of challenges, including:
- Worry and anxiety
- Low mood and depression
- Stress, overwhelm, perfectionism
- Life transitions
- Grief and loss
- Interpersonal relationship challenges
- Difficult life events from the past and trauma
- Support and accountability for achieving a long term goal
- Gender identity and sexuality
My approach to counselling is one of collaboration, rapport and respect. I integrate many evidence-based practices, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Solution-Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Positive Psychology, mindfulness practices and an attachment framework. I also incorporate my unique skills from life coaching, helping you set meaningful goals for change based on the kind of life you want to live and the person you want to be.
