My Approach

I work within a Gestalt approach to psychotherapy. Gestalt works in a relational and integrated way, paying careful attention to the whole of your experience, including your emotions, thoughts and physical sensations that emerge in the present moment.

​Prior to my training as a psychotherapist, I have worked in the corporate world for over 15 years and have developed an understanding of work-related issues and stress, in particular of the challenges for working parents struggling to reach a satisfying work-life balance.

I have always been interested in working with people from different cultures and backgrounds. Some of the issues my clients bring are to do with living in a new country, communication and relationships, identity, or conflicts between personal choices and the pressure of society, family or the community they belong to.

​On occasions I may suggest some creative approaches through craft materials (pastels, clay, drawing), but also movement, as a way of exploring difficulties if it seems it may help and if you are happy to try a new approach.

​​I am a native French speaker and offer therapy in both English and French.

About Me

My name is Julie (she/her/hers) and I am a fully qualified, UKCP accredited psychotherapist, and a psychotherapeutic counsellor. I run a private practice in Hampton, Twickenham.

I offer face-to-face sessions with clients from Kingston-upon-Thames, Wimbledon, Epsom, and the wider Surrey and Greater London area, as well as online sessions.

I am warm, empathetic and open; I offer a non-judgemental, supportive, confidential space for you to bring any needs or concerns, no matter how small. You may perhaps be feeling stuck, numb, empty; maybe stressed, confused, down, unable to cope or generally not like yourself. You may not be sure about why you are coming to see me, but just know that things are not okay in your life. You may have spiritual or existential questions you want to engage with. Whatever painful feelings or experiences you are bringing, I will support you to explore what is causing your difficulties. Therapy can help to create movement and shifts that did not previously feel present or possible.

I work with anybody experiencing mental health issues or mental distress. I work with a wide range of issues including but not limited to: addiction; ADHD; autism; adoption; alcohol use; anger management; abortion; anxiety; behavioural issues; bereavement; depression; divorce; domestic abuse and domestic violence; drug abuse; eating disorders; emotional disturbance; family conflict; feeling sad; infertility; life transitions; marital and pre-marital issues; non-binary related issues; personality disorders; pregnancy; prenatal issues; postnatal depression; racial identity; relationship issues; low self-esteem and low self-confidence; self-harming; sexual abuse; sexual addiction; sexuality; spirituality; sports performance; stress; substance use; suicidal ideation; transgender; trauma and PTSD; women's issues.

I hold a Masters of Science in Gestalt Psychotherapy, delivered by Metanoia Institute and validated by Middlesex University, and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Gestalt psychotherapeutic counselling.

I hold full professional insurance and abide by the ethical principles of the UKCP.
