Counselling Services – Office, Online and Email

Heal Trauma, re-establish connection with yourself and others: Build a Fabulous Life. 

Yes! Anxiety, abuse and other ‘purely emotional issues’ are just as much trauma as a broken body…

The Best Counselling Services to Heal Trauma are here! Plus unique DIY Tips and Tools…

Counselling services that welcome to the whole of you…

… the shy, the brash, the angry, the anxious, the confused, the narcissistic, the compassionate, the spouse, the hurt, the teenager, the misunderstood, the parent, the elder, the broken… and the perfectly normal parts: express every part of you for a truly satisfying life!

Counselling ServicesOn this website you will find counselling services (do you need a bit of help sometimes?) – regular office counselling services or online and email counselling services (which are more affordable). There are  real tools you can use yourself to heal a relationship. Let me show you how you can transform trauma and get on with your life. With or without a traditional counsellor.

Great Relationships are essential: Whether you’ve come to a fork in the road personally – or a bump in the road in terms of your relationship – these tools work. Imago and NVC blended together with TOT is the most powerful therapy you will find anywhere. For relationship counselling and for individual counselling. Wherever I can I also use the new neuroscience to explain your experiences. I am familiar with Polyvagal Theory and the other cutting edge research.

Emotions Affect Physical Health: If a crater has suddenly opened up in the road in front of you, these tools will help you rebuild.  In cases of purely physical trauma, many people don’t realize the importance of the emotional component of their trauma. As with chronic disease, emotional work is essential if you want to recover to the very fullest extent possible.  Click here for specific attention to physical trauma: stroke, chronic disease, brain injury, chemobrain and more…

Be A Healthy Hub For Your Family: The desire to explore personal growth and create a strong family is more important today than ever before. Today’s fast pace will not suffer inefficiency. Of any kind. Whether your trauma is emotional or physical, from a healthy relationship (or divorce) to an accident, a head injury to chemobrain or a stroke, this is a great place to start your journey.

More About Me

My name is Julie and I am a registered psychotherapist with 19+ years experience. I hold an MTC (Master Therapeutic Counsellor) and RCS (Registered Counselling Supervisor) with ACCT. (I’ve also worked in hospital administration, construction and business/marketing).

I’m the mother of 4 adult sons, grandmother (with 7 grandchildren), partner, girlfriend, sister, daughter and  passionate student of the new neuroscience which explains so much and helps to explore the connection between the brain, the mind and the psyche.

I started this website years ago (and I think it will always be under construction!?) to help make sense of the challenges I experience myself in life and to make sure that what I learned along the way wasn’t lost.

To my delight some of the new research in neuroscience confirms theories I’ve had, physically and emotionally and my hope is that we can share our knowledge and help each other, wealthy and not, live our lives fully. Sharing in itself is a need and has been shown to aid recovery and increase resilience! We humans are social creatures and another need is to connect and belong. The more needs you meet, the happier you feel. And that’s now proven!

Relationship and Trauma Counselling Services

Imago Style Therapy is one of the most successful relationship and marriage counselling therapies, bar none. Blended with NVC it’s pure dynamite!  TOT, or Trust Oriented Therapy is powerful (and gentle) and is a great 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 and are part of TOT. CueCards™ guide you step-by-step to use these therapies, at home and without the expense of professional counselling.

ConnectionCue™ and RelationshipCue™ Cards

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

On this website you will find a blueprint to guide you as you design your life (coming soon). Here you will find ideas to start you on the path to building a stronger ‘you’. Wherever you may start: create a vibrant family or finally heal from trauma.

A Truly Innovative Website

This website (and the CueCards) are designed to be used with or without a therapist.  That’s right: you can get started without expensive help. You can also use these ideas and tools with your own therapist. Or a close friend. To help you get started I will also send you a step-by-step instruction booklet. Hundreds of clients, individuals and couples, have found these cards invaluable. Seeking out support, together with the information itself on this website,  will help you heal your trauma, grow like a weed or build a healthy marriage,

Many types of therapy, traditional and alternative, are described here. It’s good to know what therapies are available and this information will help you find the right therapy for you.

My sons have all been key in the rebuilding of my own life with their support, love, loyalty and strength. Matt, Dan, Ben and Tom are amazing young men, each different and unique. They are an  inspiration to me and offer their unconditional love to me at every turn. Thank you – to each of them and to all of my precious friends and family.
