HOLISTIC COUNSELLING & HYPNOTHERAPY

A healing approach as unique as you are.

Hi, I'm Julia
So good to have you here.  

I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, coach and advocate. I am a mother of three, a wife of a first responder and a life long learner.  


I offer a kind, compassionate and authentic approach. I will be a safe and inclusive space along your journey through life's difficulties. I accept all parts of you.  I see you and I will meet you where you are at.

When clients come to see me, they are at a crossroads and feel like they can’t do it on their own.  Life has gotten too big for them, stretching them beyond what they believe they are capable of sustaining. They feel stuck and aren't sure how to break free from unhelpful patterns and beliefs.  They are having trouble coping with the intensity of the feelings they are experiencing and they need someone to help guide them through their storm, to safety.


 We can work together to help you restore your lost connection to yourself. You will come to a deeper recognition of who you truly are and tap into your inner strength and resources while feeling more joy and hope. Together we can bring compassionate awareness and a deeper understanding to your experience and work together to create the changes you are seeking.

My counselling approach is trauma informed and client centered. Through mindfulness and with a strength based lens, my goal is to support you in recognizing, understanding and managing your emotions.

I hope to support you while you to shift old ways of being and move towards how you wish your life to be.

I believe that therapy is a journey of healing and self-discovery that is best navigated in collaboration.

WHAT EXACTLY IS HYPNOTHERAPY?

Hypnotherapy is an amazing tool that can be used in your counselling sessions if you choose.  It is a highly focused, yet deeply relaxed state of mind that allows the chattering “thinking” brain to slow down and get quiet so that the subconscious can step forward to access the root cause of many of your problems. It is in this relaxed state, sometimes called “trance", we are allowed to observe painful thoughts, feelings and memories that might have been hidden from our conscious mind.

Feelings and memories associated with trauma tend to hide in our unconscious memory and our bodies, even if we may not always remember the trauma experienced (on a conscious level) Once our subconscious discovers the root cause of the problem, hypnotherapy opens the way for deep exploration and understanding of the underlying causes of our physical and emotional issues. We can then relax and focus the mind so that we can openly and safely explore these painful, traumatic and repressed memories, identify and process subconscious blocks and negative beliefs that may be preventing us from achieving our dreams.

Hypnotherapy helps to resolve and release these emotions and memories, allowing freedom, clarity and lasting change. In this relaxed state, we are also able to observe our real-life situations, feelings and events in a different light. As we identify and process subconscious blocks and negative beliefs, we can understand what is preventing us from achiving our goals We can change our behaviours, find relief from chronic pain and cultivate new mindsets.  Hypnotherapy can help you access your goals and create long lasting change in all areas of your life. 

My style of hypnotherapy is gentle, attentive and nondirective.  I use many different relaxation techniques,metaphors, stories and symbolism in my sessions so that you can access the parts of your subconscious needed for deep healing and change.  I will support you as you discover the root of your problems with compassion and acceptance as you uncover and explore your inner world. 

Hypnotherapy is used for:

  • Age Regression

  • PTSD and trauma

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Chronic Pain

  • Addiction

  • Insomnia

  • IBS

What Clients Say

"I found Julia to be so authentic and compassionate that I was able to truly face any unresolved grief and trauma to the fullest depth.  Julia taught me great self compassion.  She taught me to tune into my body to discover what I was feeling inside.  I gained new insights about my past and now feel confident to move forward in my life.  I have referred others to Julia and would highly recommend her to anyone needing support in their healing journey"
