Great Relationships – Unique DIY Tools – Plus…
The Best Tools for Healing of Any Trauma (Physical or Emotional)
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 counselling services and real tools! What do I mean? Download a blueprint to light your path and special cue cards to guide the best choices. Design how you want to live: polish your relationships till they shine; foster exciting personal growth; rebuild your life from any trauma, physical or emotional. Best of all: These tools can be used both with a counsellor – and without.
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 anywhere for relationship counselling. I am fascinated by the new neuroscience and familiar with Polyvagal Theory and other cutting edge research that is very useful in psychotherapy .
If a crater has suddenly opened up in the road in front of you, these tools, together with optional counselling services, 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, such as stroke, chronic disease or brain injury.
The desire to explore personal growth and create a strong family is more important today than ever before. I’m constantly in awe of the human drive to succeed and the courage to recover when trauma gets in our way. Whether your trauma is emotional or physical, from a healthy relationship (or 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 17 years experience. I became a counsellor in 1999 (after working previously in hospital administration, construction and business/marketing).
I’m a mother of 4 adult sons, grandmother (with 8 grandchildren), partner, girlfriend, sister, daughter and passionate student of the new neuroscience which explores brain, mind and psyche.
I started this website years ago (and it’s still under construction!?) to help make sense of my own challenges and to make sure that the knowledge I ‘learned along the way’ isn’t lost.
New research in neuroscience which confirms some of the theories I’ve had since my injuries delight me and my hope is that we can share our knowledge and help each other, rich and poor alike. Sharing has 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 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™ bring immeasurable 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 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!
