Julie Bickers Counselling Services

Addiction and Mental Health Counsellor

Julie is a New Zealand-born Kiwi, a mother, and a grandmother living in the Western Bay of Plenty. She is passionate about providing affordable, accessible, culturally sensitive counselling services to everyday people, with a particular passion for supporting those impacted in some way by addiction.

As well as running her part-time private practice, Julie works part-time for a kaupapa Māori Mental Health and Addiction Service, supporting clients with co-existing mental health and addiction challenges.
