Julie is a counsellor, supervisor, ACC sensitive claims provider, meditator and group facilitator. She is experienced in supporting children, teenagers and adults, with anxiety, depression, family and sexual harm, trauma, PTSD, low self-esteem, self-worth and confidence, future planning, parenting and relationship concerns either individually, as a couple or a family.
She enjoys facilitating the successful parenting programmes, Tuning into Kids™ and Tuning into Teens™, assisting parents to coach their children to support emotional regulation to enhance the relationship between parents and their teenage children.
Julie is passionate about supervision and is an advocate for regular supervision given the many challenges those in the helping profession face today. She offers supervision to counsellors, counselling students and other professionals in health, education and the business community.
Whether it be supervision or other work, Julie believes in the importance of providing a safe supportive space for people to work through the challenges they face. She uses a person centered, values and strengths approach, to support those she meets to create the futures, and life, they want.
When not supporting others, Julie is found either at the beach or on her yoga mat. She is a qualified yoga teacher in both a traditional style and Trauma Sensitive Yoga.
