Counselling Services for Relationship and Trauma

Welcome to the whole of you…

…the shy, the brash, the angry, the anxious, the confused, the narcissistic, the compassionate, the spouse, the teenager, the parent, the elder, the broken and the perfectly normal parts of you.

Here, you will find real counselling services tools! Tools to help you look at how best to carry on: to enhance your relationship,  foster exciting new personal growth or rebuild your life. These tools can be used with a counsellor or without and will  be yours for the rest of your life.

If you’ve come to a fork in the road personally, or a bump in the road in terms of your relationship, these tools work like a dream. Imago with NVC and TOT is the most powerful combination you will find. I’m also familiar with Polyvagal Theory and its effect in trauma and in relationships, together with other cutting edge neuroscience and I use this understanding in my work.

If a crater has suddenly opened up in the road in front of you too, these tools and counselling services can help rebuild your life.  In cases of purely physical trauma many people don’t realize the importance of emotional work. However, it’s essential if you want to recover to the very fullest extent possible. You may want to click this page which which may be better geared to where you are now. Or you are very welcome to stay on this page.

The desire to explore personal growth and create a strong family is strong and present in most people and I’m constantly in awe of the human drive to succeed and the courage to recover when trauma hits. Whether your trauma is emotional or physical, from divorce to accident to head injury to chemobrain to stroke, this is a great place to start your journey.

More About Me

My name is Julie and I am a registered psychotherapist with over 17 years experience.  I became a counsellor in 1999 (after working previously in hospital administration, construction and business/marketing).

I’m a mother with 4 adult sons, a grandmother (with 8 grandchildren), a partner, girlfriend, sister, daughter and a passionate student of the new neuroscience which explores the brain, mind and psyche.

I started this website years ago (and it’s still under construction!?) to help make sense of my own chaos and to make sure that the knowledge I ‘learned along the way’ isn’t lost.

My hope is that with today’s technology we can share our knowledge and help each other, rich and poor alike. And help ourselves too: ‘Sharing’ has also been shown to aid recovery and increase resilience because we humans are social creatures!

Relationship and Trauma Counselling Services

Imago Style Therapy is one of the best relationship and marriage counselling therapies, bar none. Blended with NVC it’s pure dynamite!  TOT, or Trust Oriented Therapy is very powerful (and gentle) and is a perfect glue to join NVC and Imago. TOT fits like a glove and includes a Mindfulness approach.  EMDR, Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural approaches also make top-notch trauma therapies. CueCards™ bring all of that benefit to you, at home and without the expense of professional counselling.

ConnectionCue™ and RelationshipCue™ Cards

NVC is a simple concept but it has always proven extremely hard to put into practice.  ConnectionCue™ cards bring ease and usability to NVC, Imago-style and to personal development. These brightly coloured, glossy little cards remind you of the dozens of needs that we all have constantly and often miss at a great cost to ourselves. RelationshipCue™ cards guide successful communication for every couple and offer clear guidelines – and a reminder of the rules! – for couples communication.

This website will give you ideas to start you on the path to building a stronger ‘you’,  wherever you start from,  creating a vibrant family or healing from trauma.

A Truly Innovative Website

This website (and the Cue Cards) are designed to be used with or without a therapist.  Use these ideas with your own therapist (or a close friend if you cannot afford a therapist) to help you get started. Seeking out support, together with the information on this website,  work together to heal your trauma.

Many types of therapy, traditional and alternative, are described here. It’s good to know what’s available and this information will help you find the right fit for your healing. If you have a question, please send me an email.

My son Tom and daughter-in-law Stacey build websites (excellent, easy, affordable) and have given me this new Trauma Counselling Services website! What a beautiful gift, thank you guys!

Best wishes and good luck on your journey!
