Julia Hatch Dip. Psych. MBACP
Hello, I’m Julia. Thank you for giving me some of your time.
If you’re investigating psychotherapists right now, something in your life isn’t working. It may be that you’re struggling with feelings of depression or anxiety. Perhaps you’re having difficulties in your relationships, or at work. You might be carrying wounds from the past that you’re unable to let go of, or stored experiences are preventing you from leading the life you wish for yourself. Perhaps your coping mechanisms are no longer working or have become destructive, or maybe you feel there is something more that is calling to you, but you don't know what that something is.
I am a transpersonal psychotherapist combining psychotherapy with coaching. I take an integrative approach to my work, meaning that I will encourage you to consider all aspects of your life. We will explore your current concerns, but may also talk about your childhood, how you feel about life’s big questions, who you have become and who you want to be.
We will not only be travelling backwards; I also aim for your therapeutic experience to be optimist and forward-gazing. I provide a warm, safe and non-judgmental space where you can bring whatever you need. We will use our time together to forge a possible path towards a happier and more fulfilling life.
Training, qualifications & experience
Before my life as a psychotherapist, I worked in advertising and PR. I chose to leave the corporate world, and eventually London, to work more closely with people, and live more closely to nature.
I have been a volunteer at Maytree, a respite centre for people in suicidal crisis, and have worked as a psychotherapist and counsellor for women at Kingston Women’s Centre. I have mentored students with disabilities through their time at university and have supported and coached clients through challenging life transitions such as bereavement, pregnancy and divorce.
In 2014 co-founded Transform Counselling, a not-for-profit low cost counselling service offering affordable depth therapy to those who would not otherwise have access to it. Transform was created as an answer to the lack of accessible long-term counselling for people on lower or no income, and hinges on the philosophy that emotional and psychological wellbeing should be available to all.
While I remain closely involved with Transform, today I work with my clients privately, offering a blend of psychotherapy, coaching and mentoring, designed according to their unique needs.

I am passionate about nature and its ability to heal and teach us about ourselves, and so offer Wisdom Walks; one off nature-based sessions where we will walk together, be inspired and guided by the natural world around us, and make a deep enquiry into the questions you would like to work through.
I also provide individual Dream Readings for those who are interested in exploring the significance or meaning of old, recurring or impactful dreams. This often leads to a series of spiritual development sessions, which can be discussed in person.
If you are interested in working with me and would like to find out a little more about any of the services I provide, I offer consultations free of charge and without any obligation. Please do get in touch to arrange.
I very much look forward to hearing from you.

|Face to face counselling:||Yes|
I'm afraid neither of the practices I work from are wheelchair-accessible, however, I can happily investigate alternative places to meet, and also offer online sessions if you are a wheelchair user and would like to work with me.
Depending on frequency and location of our meetings, I offer flexible availability Monday to Friday.
