Hi, my name is Julie Ovett and I run a modern mindful therapy practice in Parkstone, Poole.
I work with Adults, Couples, Young people and Families looking at a wide range of issues, including anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship problems, stress, anger, abuse, depression and trauma.
I became interested in counselling when, nearly 20 years ago, I was mentoring university students with mental health difficulties. All my students were seeing counsellors so I felt I should find out more about it. I looked, loved and the rest, as they say, is history.
