everything you need to know...

Julie Bell

BCouns(Co), DipLC, DipCSW (MntlHlth)

Helping others to recognise their own strengths and abilities is something I'm not only trained to do, but also have innate abilities in.

Naturally intuitive, forming relationships and understanding what makes people tick comes naturally and easily to me, so helping others is an obvious pathway choice. 

Specialising in counselling and coaching, I have a real passion for working with individuals, including adultsyoung adults, teens and children; I'm also passionate about helping people to cope with any mental health issues (anxiety & depression) they may be experiencing. 

My qualifications and experience also allow me to provide a vast range of counselling and coaching, including mental health counselling/coaching career counselling/coaching, crisis counselling, mindfulness coaching and facilitation, energy psychology & mind-body therapeutic approaches, parent coaching, and parenting course facilitation such as 123 Magic & Engaging Adolescents.

Above all, I am passionate and driven to see people reaching their full potential – whether it be at home, work, in relationships or personal growth.

My approach is professional, fun, exploratory, non-judgemental and patient. I lean towards utilising Psycho-dynamic, Psycho-therapeutic, Neuro-scientific (including mindfulness), and Energy Psychology (ie. Tapping, EFT, etc) techniques and approaches, but am also skilled at utilising various different counselling and psychotherapy modalities including CBT, Narrative Therapy, NLP, Solution Focused, Positive Psychology, Coaching and Person-Centred Talk Therapy approaches as well - I like to utilise the wide base of my training and knowledge to suit the individual and their needs (taking into account their own learning/communication styles), and approach working with each individual intuitively.

By using these evidence based, and highly solution-focused practices (and encouraging holistic approaches to life), I bring a lot to the table and I'm constantly thinking outside of the box to help achieve positive results for my clients, and quite often see positive results after only a few visits, depending on whether the client wants to move through a difficult block or period in their life, or wish to really 'clean house' and work towards specific goals.

I always support my clients to approach emotional healing or goal setting in the way that they feel most comfortable, and recognise that not everyone wants to change - sometimes people just want (and need) a safe, non-judgemental and unbiased ear to share their troubled thoughts with, while others seek to find the link between their physical and emotional states (particularly for those experiencing TMS and other pain-body symptomology).

    “I found Julie at a time of despair. I felt lost and with very little self-esteem. Julie helped to “unlock” me and my potential, working on my barriers and personal fears. I have found a new career path and feel confident and energetic again. Can’t thank and recommend her enough! ”

    New career path...

    “My coaching sessions with Julie were comfortable and empowering. Julie is an exceptionally skilled professional with highly developed people skills. She is empathetic, discrete and gracious. She is adept at juggling competing priorities and exercises sound judgement. She enabled me to see solutions and ways of doing things that have inspired and motivated me to get over a monumental ‘hump’. Julie is a skillful coach who, with her insightful questions and great listening skills, helped me pinpoint my greatest challenges in maximising my efforts to accomplish my relationship goals; helped me set my priorities straight, and was instrumental in helping me put together a step-by-step plan to help me get unstuck in certain areas of my life. I highly recommend her as your next coach! Julie is a beautiful human being with a lot to give the world and I wish her all the very best in all of her endeavours! Thank-you!”

    “What wonderfully productive sessions I have with Julie. Her ability to think on her feet and go with wherever she and I feel I need guidance is a real gift. I feel she has a genuine interest in me and her empathy and positivity is given with real sincerity. Her "you can do anything" approach has built my confidence and opened my mind for endless possibilities. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is so relatable I feel I could tell her anything.Julie's memory and great listening skills mean that each session isn't wasted with going over past discussions. We can pick up where we left off even when there's a long break between sessions. Also between sessions I have "homework" to focus on so working on me doesn't just end with our meetings. Julie often follows up with the odd email, message or call when she comes across something of interest that could benefit me. Her service is "above and beyond" which comes back to her sincerity and caring nature. I couldn't ask for a better life coach.”
