Reasons to come to therapy:
A very moving testimonial in April
"I first consulted Julie 2 1/2 years ago, when I recognised the pressures of a failing second marriage, grief from the recent rather sudden death of my father which left me parent-less, and a highly stressful, consistently pressurised work environment all needed addressing. Through an intensive period of counselling, Julie proved a consistent source of support, helping me to understand and articulate my experiences of emotion as I lived through marital separation, medical diagnosis for triggered depression and consequent sign-off from work, and the loss of my father, whilst striving to remain constant and growing in my close and active relationship with my sons from my first marriage.
Julie is an active, participative listener - she always checks me to ask how I feel about a particular situation or event as I explain this in a session. Without at all feeling intrusive, her approach in making me articulate my emotional responses has enabled me to understand and accept them in a way that has helped me rebuild my confidence in who I am.
Julie has continued to support me through further major transitions as I left my 30-year career in the City and started to enrich my life through extensive travelling, cultural activity and building new relationships across the world. I am about to embark on another major transition by moving to another, distant country to pursue my cultural interests. With her careful, occasionally provocative, sometimes humorous and always warmly professional counselling, Julie has supported my emergence from depression and preparedness for, and growth into a new, calm and confident way of living."
"I've made some serious lifestyle changes and now happier than ever. Working with you was definitely one of the most memorable interventions, I often remember our conversations. Thank you for touching my life"
Change Management Consultant
I started my sessions with Julie at a very challenging time in my personal life and a very busy time in my career working as an independent consultant. Spending several months going through key issues around my personal relationships enabled me to gain a real clarity of mind, grow significantly in self-confidence and self-awareness. Overall those few months really helped challenge personal perceptions of myself and the personal growth I've achieved as a result and quite literally been life changing. I couldn't recommend Julie more highly.
