She has worked with people with a broad range of emotional and psychological difficulties such as depression, anxiety, panic disorder, health problems, isolation, childhood abuse, trauma, loss and past and present relationship problems. She is able to offer both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy, taking into account the nature of clients' concerns and needs. Julie has an interest in the psychology of health and has published research in this area.

She will work collaboratively with you to ascertain which way of working best suits your current needs. At the heart of Julie’s practice is a commitment to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can feel able to explore your difficulties in depth and where you can begin to increase your self-understanding in order to bring change and possibility.
