Understanding myself better

Thank you for helping me to learn and understand myself better, for helping me to update my memory bank and re-organise my trauma and for giving me the tools to deal with life a bit better.
You have remained professional while also showing me compassion, kindness, care and empathy during my most vulnerable and challenging time.

The gift of a lifetime!

I approached therapy with apprehension: I struggled to identify what problems I actually faced and was sceptical about how successful it would be. Being from an ethnic/religious minority background, I’ve always been hesitant with opening up about the ways in which this has impacted me, but Julie’s cultural sensitivity, wider awareness and her previous experience with these topics meant I was so quickly reassured. She always remained respectful, understanding, non judgmental, open-minded and well informed, and I’d without a doubt recommend her.

We worked on issues regarding disordered eating and body image ..  I loved the dynamic mix of approaches we used in session, from mapping out deeper childhood experiences to working through books, to in-session exercises. Throughout the course of the sessions, my mood started changing visibly. By the end of the year I had grown naturally happier, friends and family noticed I laughed more, and I suddenly found myself with lots of time to develop myself and enjoy hobbies. I’m forever grateful for Julie for helping me to discover freedom and realise how much more there is to life!  A massive thank you!

The best yet hardest things I’ve done

“Seeing Julie was one of the best yet hardest things I’ve done. To sit and openly discuss your insecurities, worries & stresses is difficult but Julie made me feel safe, relaxed and able to fully open up about my struggles. I never felt judged. Her empathy and understanding made it easier for me to accept why I think like I do and how I could make changes which would better me.  I can’t thank her enough and I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to make personal improvements.”

Less consumed by my own thoughts

“My sessions with Julie enabled me to be less consumed by my own thoughts. Julie gave me a comfortable environment to be able to offload and process how I was feeling. I felt confident that I was genuinely being cared for and listened to. I am now feeling hopeful for my future and I’m so thankful to Julie for giving me tools I can use.”

Reducing the burden of anxiety and OCD.

Thank you so much for all your help during my journey to reduce the burden of anxiety and OCD.

Being able to look towards the future rather than focusing on the past is exciting! So simply, just wanted to say a big ‘thank you’.

Impacting thing

The most impactful thing was; ‘the realisation of being able to accept that it’s OK to fall down occasionally and that it’s OK for someone else to help you get back up again!’
