Holistic Counselling Walk & Talk, Somatic and Bodywork Therapy in Lower Hutt

I am a Holistic Counsellor, an intuitive & a spiritual mentor. My spiritual awareness and my background in the field of health have benefitted my appreciation for both tangible and mystical perceptions when it comes to physical and mental wellbeing.

The transformation & sacred journey I will take you on will enable you to reach wellbeing by liberating yourself from traumas, conditioning, and self-limiting beliefs rooted in past experiences that are no longer serving you. I use my intuition and mindful somatic awareness to support you in delving into your body, recognising it as a mirror to your subconscious, thus unveiling profound insights essential for your personal evolution and growth. By doing so you will be able to reclaim your gifts, reconnect to your true authentic self, and align with your life’s deepest desires.
I have a nurturing, proactive & empowering approach to help you find freedom within yourself in a supportive and safe environment.
Our session will be focused and adapted to you. We will work together to understand your unique needs with the integrative techniques that are the most appropriate to you to find balance, happiness, and peace in yourself and create the life you desire. I have the wisdom and empathy to care for and support you on your journey of discovery and transformation.

What is Holistic Counselling?

Holistic Counselling is a beautiful way to get in touch with all parts of yourself. It is such a down to earth approach that touches the deepest of your Soul and considers you in your wholeness embracing the emotional, mental, physical, social, and spiritual part of yourself so that I am as a Holistic Counsellor able to create the appropriate treatment plan that will support you to align with who you truly are and the world you live in.

It recognises physiological and psychological imbalances as parts of a greater whole and considers the mind, body, soul, and spirit as fundamentally interconnected. This approach offers different therapeutic modalities and techniques that encourage beautiful souls like you to discover your sovereignty for the purpose of empowering you to create the life you truly desire.

Being a Holistic Practitioner for so many years now I have been honored to work and celebrate the success stories of many beautiful souls from all walks of life and I invite you today to be the author of your own life and to start writing the beginning of a new era!

Who is Holistic Counselling suitable for?

Holistic Counselling is suitable and recommended for anyone who would like someone to deeply listen to them without judgment and in complete confidentiality as well as for anyone who would like to have the support and guidance to discover their own path in life and to get in touch with their true authentic self. I am looking forward to guiding you!

What to expect in a Holistic Counselling session with Julie?

Your first session is in place for you and I to get to know each other and make sure we are comfortable working together and to create a space in which we are both feeling nurtured, empowered, and in complete confidence.
You will take the time to discuss the reason why you are here and I will support you to go beyond what your conscious mind is allowing you to see. Together we will lift the veil and bring to the light the shadow sides of the Self to enlighten them to a deeper inner awakening. In this process, you may recognise part of yourself that is challenging and uncomfortable to look at which often is the key to enabling the start of your journey toward self-healing and transformation.

As the sessions evolve, your inner beliefs, emotions, physical sensations, thoughts, and behaviour patterns that have impacted your life and relationships will be getting more apparent to you. Therefore, I will support you in exploring these aspects of yourself with different transformative therapeutic modalities to bring back the natural flow of life within you.

This will also give both of us a better understanding of what to do to overcome anything stopping you from living your life fully and authentically with care, empathy, joy, and space to breathe and grow.

I offer my in person holistic counselling therapy sessions in the capacity of:

Walk & Talk Therapy:

It is a different approach to talk therapy alone which favors relaxation, self-expression, and balance because of the benefit of being surrounded by nature itself.
This combination brings an alignment in our body, mind, soul, and spirit allowing us to open, restore, and transform ourselves and life on many levels.

Somatic Therapy:

This approach finds the underlying cause of a person's physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional state of being by addressing the body, mind, & soul in the capacity of talking and stillness or talking and movement therapy combined. This form of therapy aims to teach how to calm or transmute stress, tension, and trauma to find liberation.

Bodywork Therapy:

This is an approach that uses therapeutic touch and talk therapy combined to stimulate the body's natural healing process. The healing through therapeutic touch gives a pathway for the many unprocessed emotions and traumas trapped in the body that are impacting a person's emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing to be released in a healthy and nurturing way. This practice might include techniques that range from a reassuring hand on the shoulder to holistic massage therapy, emotional release techniques, and energy healing to restore and balance the body's energetic field for better health. 

When you book your first appointment I will send you all the details you need to start this journey with me. I hold my in-person therapy sessions in the Lower Hutt region.

If you feel called to find your gift and discover your own power under my wings, I offer all my modalities under the umbrella of holistic counselling consultations, workshops, ceremonies and accredited courses!

If you want to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.

A caring, intuitive and highly skilled holistic counsellor

I was searching for a marriage counselor who had a more holistic view and found Julie. I was in a vulnerable time in my life as I was feeling that my marriage was over, and that marriage counselling was the last effort to give things a try between me and my husband.

I had my first session by myself with Julie online and instantly felt the safe, supportive space that Julie holds. Her calm energy and impeccable listening skills allowed me to speak honestly and openly about everything that I was going through, knowing that I wasn't going to be judged in any way.

My husband and I then began couple's sessions in person with Julie, which have helped to transform our marriage in way that I didn't think was possible, but had dreamed of. Our marriage and communication with one another has improved and we feel more connected and compassionate towards one another. Both my husband and I have loved the guided meditations during the sessions where we connect together energetically on a deeper level.

The space Julie creates in person is so welcoming, with nourishing tea, candles, sage and beautiful oracle cards. I can feel the spiritual support that Julie works with during her sessions. To know that all aspects of myself, my marriage and our lives are explored in this holistic way during sessions, this has helped to bring in more awareness to all areas of my life and myself so that healing can happen.

If you're after a genuinely caring, intuitive and highly skilled holistic counsellor, then book a session with Julie, she truly is incredible and also makes the most magical, healing chakra oils and flower remedies.

I cannot recommend her enough

I have been meeting Julie for in person holistic counselling through walks for almost a month now and cannot recommend her enough!

I have never felt so heard and understood.

She continues to amaze me, going above and beyond every session. I am so grateful to have such a kind and caring soul guiding me on my healing journey.

I highly recommend Julie

A good friend suggested I find a counselor and had shared stories of her own where she had to "shop around" for someone who resonated with her. Well I feel like I hit the target the first time with Julie - I am so glad I found her.

Having never done counseling before I was nervous but that dissipated within minutes. We are a few sessions in and I am so grateful I took the leap and landed on such a caring and professional soul.

Julie is curious without being forceful, gentle while still working with strength and pace, and generous in her guidance and support which has really lightened my load and opened the door to self-discovery.

I highly recommend Julie if you are looking for a holistic counselor.
