Psychoanalytic therapy aims to provide relief from difficult feelings or emotional suffering, at the same time as working towards understanding yourself and others for long term and deep-seated change. Julie offers a therapeutic relationship in which to do this – one that provides a safe, confidential, and trusting space in which to open up and talk freely, and to look deeper into your concerns and problems.
Julie has experience of working with individual clients on a range of emotional problems including dissatisfaction with life or relationships, anxiety, depression, inability to form satisfactory relationships, confusion around gender or sexuality, grief and loss, the impact of long-term illness and retirement.
In couple therapy, Julie provides an opportunity to help break cycles that can feel very stuck, and to improve both the communication and intimacy between you and your partner. Julie has extensive experience helping couples who come to therapy either with a specific difficulty they are struggling with, or are perhaps feeling overwhelmed by the problems between them. Just some of the issues that Julie can assist with are; struggles around parenting, the birth of a new baby, illness, infertility, problems in the sexual relationship, infidelity, anger and conflict that feels out of control, extended family problems, or difficulties in later life. Julie can also, when needed, help couples to separate better, in a less conflictual and hostile way.
Further trainings include: Mentalization Based Therapy; Post Qualifying Certificate in Psychoanalytic Supervision
