Creative Connections combines my commitment to personal development through face-to-face work with groups or individuals, and the impact of the written word. As a writer I am always looking to see things from a new angle, whether exploring a personal issue in a journal or poem, creating an article or developing a book. I have also found that working alongside others – from classroom to counselling room – to help them make their own fresh connections, can result in significant growth and change.

My professional grounding is a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (2001), an MA in Creative Writing (2015) and as an MBTI® Registered Practitioner (1997). Both the psychodynamic perspective and the MBTI personality type model offer valuable insights into our underlying patterns and personality, whilst respecting people’s individuality. Every client and group I meet is unique, and I seek to adapt my approach accordingly.

I am an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and work to its ethical guidelines. This includes a commitment to ongoing professional development, and accountability through regular supervision.

    ‘I really enjoyed Julia’s knowledge and style of presentation. It was clear she knew what she was talking about. It was great to have someone lead the course who has
    done it for so long and knows exactly what she is doing.’
