Client Feedback:
Julie spent the time listening to my daughter and myself and helped us come up with strategies to help my daughter. Julie has helped bring some calmness to our craziness and although our time with Julie has come to an end we will be going to see her again in the future and I would definitely recommend Julie as she is very approachable. V.L. Gloucester

Julie listened to me and understood - Teenager

A very helpful counsellor - very knowledgeable with issues involving families with ASD. I would thoroughly recommend her, Thank You Julie! B.R.

I was introduced to Julie through a friend who knew I was struggling with certain aspects of my life. I was having relationship difficulties. I was depressed and sometimes wondered why I bothered to get up in the morning. I had always been a positive person but now felt worthless. Julie helped me to see things from a different angle; she asked me to try certain things; to talk more to my partner . She also listened when I needed to get angry and talk things through.
I am a more positive person now and thanks to Julie my relationship with my partner is better and I know if I feel myself going back to black place Julie would be my first call.
