Dr Julie Hare
I am a Clinical Psychologist with 15 years post qualified experience in the NHS. I am experienced in using psychological therapies to help individuals, couples, families and older people presenting with a wide range of mental health distress. I am interested in issues around self esteem/identity/culture, childhood neglect, trauma, difficult relationships, mood problems and managing long term health conditions. I also work with adults with ASD/ADHD. In addition to working with distress I offer ‘life reflection’ sessions for individuals who just need a space to ‘pause’ and think about their wellbeing, and for self development.
My specialist interest is therapies and I draw from a number of models to integrate what is helpful for the individual I am working with. My approach is reflective and gentle, but also honest and not shying away from safely talking about things that are traumatic or more difficult to talk about. I enjoy working working with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Aside from being a Clinical Psychologist I am also a home-educating mummy, which is a challenging but beautiful experience - I feel very privileged to have this role. I have a mixed cultural background as although I am British I grew up abroad, and my family life continues to be a mixture of cultures with my husband originating from Fiji. I am a Christian.

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
