Julie’s extensive training and experience as a sex therapist helps guide her clients to resolve many of their past and present issues.
“Relationships and sexual issues are a specialised area of interest for me, because when we get these areas of our lives right; so many other aspects of our life fall comfortably into place.”
Julie has trained many of Melbourne’s counselling and hypnotherapists as a senior lecturer at leading colleges and universities in Melbourne.
Having seen many clients over the past 24 years, Julie’s clinical experience is both extensive and diverse. Her sexual therapy and relationship counselling has provided many clients find a safe port to begin the process of discovery and recovery.
Many adults present with sexual issues related to healing after the end of a relationship, requiring special understanding and counselling to overcome any obsticals. It is often important to intervene early, repairing any resentments and hurts before they become a larger problem.
At times non-sexual relationships outside of the primary coupleship (sometimes referred to as “emotional affairs”) cause insecurities and jealousy. These situations need special understanding to sort out before permanent damage is caused, or the relationship difficulties become terminal.
Sexual dysfunctions or other sexual issues can arise from many different beginnings, such as a life stage dilemma, past emotional difficulties and thought patterns, as well as physical medical health issues. Discovering and understanding these issues will assist on the road to healing and wholeness.
Hypnotherapy is often helpful in cases requiring behaviour change, such as dealing with porn addiction, premature ejaculation and many other aspects of sexual therapy.
As a trained hypnotherapist, Julie is able to effectively use hypnotherapy to assist with behaviour change for both sexual and other issues as desired by the client.
