Julia has almost 20 years experience of working therapeutically with adults, and children and young people and their families, within Health, Education and the Voluntary Sector. This has included three years as the Clinical Lead of a Child and Family Counselling Team.
Julia has significant experience of working with the wide range of difficulties that adults struggle with, including depression and anxiety, relationship and family issues, the experience of trauma including abuse and violence, and bereavement, as well those who feel stuck and are wanting something different from their lives.

She is EMDR-trained and has been offering this as an approach to adults and children over the last five years.
Julia has worked with children and their families in schools and the community as well as within clinic settings, and loves talking with children, young people and their parents about their best hopes for their lives and relationships, and how to get back-on-track with these.
