His work offers people a possibility to explore psychological, cognitive and behavioural patterns. Matters that are explored in the therapy help develop in the person the notion of healthier boundaries and brings clarity to their process and roles in any relationships.
One of the foundation of Julien’s work is creating a safe environment to support clients who are looking deeper inside themselves, in search for meaning. Side by side, he works collaboratively with each person with the view to offer them the most supportive emotional and mental transformative experience. His intention is to provide a support that will help every person to develop a more authentic sense of themselves, and develop newness in their relationships as they seek-out different outcomes. Julien works with a beginner’s mind, creatively adaptable he is attentive to each person’s needs with compassion and a non-judgmental regard.
