Julie Wan Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

My practice is informed by both personal experience and rigorous training in Psychotherapy & Counselling. Prior to graduating in this field, I spent two decades teaching young people in education and workshops; and adults wellbeing through Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness practices which continue today. I found empowerment through sessions with a therapist myself and this inspired me to offer the same to others. Being truly heard, perhaps for the first time enables choices.

The branch of training* I had means I have an interest in what's happened to us, how we make meaning of it, then how we connect and relate both in a therapy room and beyond.

I have also experienced and learnt how our body-feeling-sense can really help us along the way. My background in practising and teaching body-and-mind practices over the last 25 years feeds into this, enabling us to connect more deeply to what is happening on levels not always ordinarily acknowledged, and can integrate really well with what arises in session.

Awareness of our whole selves can also help us tap into a deeper knowing of who we are and what is happening in our lives. As increasingly backed up in the current world of neuroscience; I believe that getting to know our nervous system can help us to better understand what is happening for us over time.

*My Psychotherapy training was in Humanistic theory and principles, through an existential lens.
