I am Julie King, a Brisbane Psychologist, who has been practising as a registered psychologist for over 30 years. I have been in private practice in Brisbane since 2008, initially at Holland Park and now at Mt Gravatt. I have worked with babies, children, adolescents and their parents and families in the public sector and in private practice. I have completed postgraduate study in perinatal and infant psychology. I enjoy helping parents and their babies connect and get off to a good start from conception. I can help address any issues such as birth trauma, neonatal loss, prematurity, maternal depression or anxiety or grief which cause distress at this very vulnerable time and can sometimes cause extra challenges. When babies and toddlers are struggling I often use an evidence based, play based therapy with their parents. Play is children’s preferred way of communicating. Most parents find this play based approach gentle, enjoyable and enriching. Older children and their parents often benefit from this approach as well. My many years experience working with infants, toddlers,children and adolescents with emotional and mental health issues has provided a good foundation for helping adults address their own issues and reach their potential particularly where they’ve suffered childhood distress including trauma.
