Hello there, my name is Julia AKA The Modern Therapist and I'll have a little therapy shack at WelI Fest East Midlands 2018, where I hope to meet lots of you lovely people.
A little bit about me, I'm a Humanistic Psychotherapist with over 25 years of mental health experience .
I have an abundance of passion for communicating with people and doing my utmost to demystify the stigma and barriers around talking about our mental wellbeing. The fabulous thing about everyone of us is that we are different and all come with our own individual experiences and quirks.
Sometimes we get a bit battered by what life throws at us and feel worn out emotionally and physically. Often we pop on a 'mask to shield the outside world and fool it into thinking 'I'm fine...keep smiling...breathe....no one can see" but inside we are squirming like crazy to say "help, stop, I'm in distress, please see me".
I'm on a mission to encourage everyone young and old to take ownership for their mental health and create a platform that shouts from the rooftops, " do you know something, I'm not ok and I'm doing something positive about it for me and I don't care what you think of me, I've got stuff I need to deal with and I'll be ok".
If any of this resonates with you and you've often thought, I could really do with talking to someone about how I'm feeling, come and find me in the marketplace at Well Fest East Midlands 2018, explore how the RIGHT therapy could support you, take a leaflet, have a think and know what, you'll be one step closer to empowering yourself.
See you on the 29th Sept!
