Testimonials

I cannot recommend Julie highly enough to anyone who wants to speak to a professional about what they are going through. She is kind, caring, compassionate and she listens without judgement.

I have been seeing Julie on a regular basis for a year now and I cannot put into words how much she has helped me. I originally went to see her following a traumatic event in my relationship but I knew I also needed to seek her help for historic bereavement that I had never dealt with. I reached out to Julie by email initially and received a quick response explaining that she was able to help me with the issues I had mentioned.

I was a little apprehensive about our first session as I had never spoken to a stranger about my troubles but Julie put me at ease as soon as I walked through the door. She has a beautiful, calm, relaxed space for sessions- it is not at all clinical as I had first imagined it might be.

During our sessions Julie was able to unravel my emotions and allow me to deal with them in a safe environment. She always knows what I need much sooner than I know myself. She has allowed me to deal with issues I had suppressed for over a decade and I honestly believe that because of my counselling I am able to communicate much better with those around me.

The sessions have all been at my own pace, taking each step at a time. Only when Julie was confident that I was ready would she take me through the next exercise. I have dealt with some difficult things during our sessions but I have never once felt rushed to do so. I have learnt new things about myself and feel much better equipped to face challenges.

Having counselling has changed my life for the better and I now have someone I can call upon when I feel things are getting on top of me. I cannot thank Julie enough for the help she has given me and for the positive impact our sessions have had on my life.

“Julie’s approach to therapy was a breath of fresh air to me. She helped me see things with renewed clarity which took care of anxieties that I had. The skills she taught me I can still use when needed. It’s really nice to know people like Julie are out there in these tough times and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her for any issues, big or small. Just make the call!”

“I have no hesitation in recommending Julie to anyone struggling with mental health issues.

I found her to be an excellent counsellor who has a great many years of experience. She can combine traditional therapy with her knowledge of alternative healing therapies to suit the needs of the individual for a more holistic approach.”

“To people that may read this, who are considering consulting and working with Julie Heanan, I would like to say this to you:

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Julie, as a Counsellor and for her spiritual and soul work. She is a wise, knowledgeable, patient and compassionate person, and I trust her completely.

I came to Julie with incredibly complex, long term, illnesses that have been helped and improved immensely since meeting, and working with, her. Julie has also taught me methods and  practices with which I can help myself in dealing with issues that can arise in my day to day life; these have been invaluable, and have genuinely enhanced my understanding of myself, and given me the ability to be kinder and more compassionate with ‘Me’ too – something that I had always struggled with in the past.

My life is honestly so much better now, and I am very grateful to Julie for working with me and enabling me to achieve this. I now look forward to my future, and the further exploration of my ‘self’ – mind, spirit and soul.”

“When I came for counselling I was in a dark place and couldn’t see a way out of it. However, Julie listened to me, understood me and helped me come to terms with my situation, and also helped me develop skills and strategies that are helping me maintain my wellbeing. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone and I won’t hesitate to come back if I should ever need to. Thank you, Julie, for all your help!”

“If you’re reading this site, unsure whether to proceed, just pick up the phone! 

Making the decision to begin therapy was one of the best decisions I ever made. 
I spent many years struggling with low self esteem, anxiousness, and family issues, expecting to just “get over it” Last year a serious issue rocked me to the core and I can only describe myself as feeling totally broken.
I knew I needed to get help before I lost myself completely.
A friend of mine recommended Julie and from the moment we spoke I knew I had made the right choice. She is so kind and compassionate with a huge heart. 
My time with Julie has helped me to transform the way I think and feel about myself and deal with aspects of my life in various ways. 
It has helped me overcome fears, anxiety and has honestly made such a difference to my everyday life. 
There are no quick fixes and at times the process is hard work, but the experience is life-changing.  
I know myself better now, my relationships have improved and I am better able to deal with life’s ups and downs. 
My advice is: Be kind to yourself and give it a try. You won’t look back.”
