Thank you for visiting.

“Practicing as a counsellor and coach since 2010, it has been my privilege to hear so many stories of courage, resilience, creativity, ingenuity and love.  I have come to deeply appreciate the complexity of human nature, and the value of listening.

There is a wonderful connection between the heart and the ears.  When we speak with someone about our challenges and concerns, it really means something to us, and makes a difference, when they listen with their heart.  This is the kind of counsellor I strive to be – fully present for your story and for your experience as you tell it.

I have extensive education and experience in the fields of counselling psychology, health sciences, nutrition, wellness and Chinese Medicine.

My mission is to provide counselling support, guidance, teaching and skills development that will help clients enjoy a sense of well being, fulfillment and happiness.  I do not therapeutically treat individuals or conditions, and do not practice psychotherapy.

Besides counselling, I have a life-long interest in creative writing, philosophy, health, exercise and nutrition. I enjoy walking and cycling outside, reading and painting.

I offer a free 20-minute phone call so you can get a sense of my voice and style and see how you might feel working with me.  Feel free to email, and we can set up a time.”

Best wishes for a lovely day ~  Julia
