Therapeutic Approach

Julie finds that attachment theory and research provides a very helpful framework to assist clients understand their own insecurities and important relationships throughout the lifespan. Julie believes that mindfulness practices benefit clients of all ages (including children) not only during therapy but as an important practice for maintaining ongoing emotional wellbeing and a sense of calm at home, work and play. It helps to give us a welcome break from the inevitable chatter in our minds, and the often frenetic pace of everyday life. Julie also has a thorough understanding of the impact that trauma (especially that occurring in childhood) can have on people’s lives and sense of wellbeing. Julie has had extensive training and experience in trauma therapy (including EMDR) with all ages. Julie is informed by neuroscience research which can help clients make sense of scared, anxious, angry or depressed feelings and habits that seem difficult to budge.
