Kia ora, my name is Julie and I am a qualified counsellor and provisional member of the New Zealand Christian Counsellors Association (NZCCA).
As a counsellor I provide adult eclectic counselling which uses the following therapy styles –
Counselling is a non-judgemental safe space where we can connect and together establish some goals to walk towards step by step at your pace.
We can see the difficult situations we face as obstacles or opportunities. I understand that life can be very difficult at times as I’ve experienced my share of trauma, loss and grief among many other life challenges. I have also worked many years alongside families or whānau who have experienced grief and loss alongside trauma, particularly through sexual and family violence.
Turning life’s obstacles into opportunities for growth and self-betterment can be a challenging journey but it is also a tremendously rewarding one. Change takes effort as we cant’ expect a different result from doing the same thing. I commend you for being here today as you seek healing from the hurts you’ve experienced and explore positive change in your own life.
I am a counsellor who aims to heal the broken hearted by equipping, empowering, and encouraging all those that I work with to be the best version of themselves. To help those I work with to not just survive, but overcome with confidence life’s barriers, so the pain of the past, or current situation they are experiencing will not keep them bound up from attaining their preferred future. Decisions today are our lived experiences tomorrow.
