Julie is a retired medical doctor now offering assistance for people with stress, low mood or past trauma. Informed by current thinking on how to resolve the effects of traumatic experience on mind, body and nervous system, Julie is available to work with individuals and groups, either in-person or on Zoom.
Having graduated from the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1982, Julie worked as a GP for many years in the West Highlands of Scotland where she provided a full range of services, from care during pregnancy and birth right through to end of life care at home. Working in such a remote setting involved being a first responder at emergencies, and making house visits by boat. She also worked in Edinburgh before moving to New Zealand in 2008.
Her experience in the Greater Wellington area includes mainstream General Practice, Student Health and work for a Maori health care provider, as well as after-hours care, before retiring in 2020.
Continuing her long-held interest in holistic health and wellbeing, she completed the three year Somatic Experiencing™ training in 2021 and is currently studying Neuroaffective Touch™. She has also explored mind-body connection through 5Rhythms® conscious dance, (qualified teacher 2008) Bio-energy therapy, (Diploma course 2003) and the practice of Yoga, meditation and QiGong.
