Hi, I'm Julia
So good to have you here.
I am a holistic 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 for you as you journey through your 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 for support, they are at a crossroads and feel like they can’t do it on their own. Life has gotten too big for them and they need someone to help guide them through the storm and to safety on the other side.
They need compassion and understanding.
They are craving connection with their true self or a higher power. They are wanting to heal and transform traumas, mend relationships and find hope and peace. They are searching for deeper meaning and purpose in life.
As we work together I can help you restore this lost connection to yourself as you come to a deeper recognition of who you truly are. I will help you tap into your inner resources so that you can bring more joy, hope and compassion into your life. I welcome every part of you and give you tools to help you manage difficult feelings.
WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?
I work with people who are feeling burnt out, exhausted, and not-good-enough. Oftentimes they are struggling with shame, guilt, anxiety and depression. They have lost touch with who they are and feel a disconnect between their body, mind and spirit. They might have stressful relationships, are looking for more purpose and direction or have just had enough and know a change is needed. They are wanting to finally deal with traumas or experiences that were difficult. I also work with First Responders and their families to help them navigate the unique complexities and difficulties this lifestyle brings.
Issues I work with
Spiritual Transitions and Exploration
Grief & Loss
Self-Worth & Self Esteem
Relationship and Family conflict
Chronic Pain & Illness
I use a holistic and integrative approach that draws on:

WHAT EXACTLY IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Hypnotherapy is an amazing tool that can be used in our 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 our problems. 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 we don’t always remember the trauma experienced (on a conscious level) Once our subconscious discovers the root cause of the problem, we can openly and safely explore these painful, traumatic and repressed memories.
Hypnotherapy helps to resolve and release these, 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. 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 help you get to the root of the problem with compassion and acceptance as you uncover and explore your inner world.
"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without"
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"
