“I have immensely benefited from her observations and suggestions regarding my clients. Julie has a very meticulous attention to detail about the technique of ISTDP.   She has a step by step approach to apply the theory and technique to the client’s problems. She has encouraged me to follow the moment by moment interventions and I have seen amazing results emerge from following up on her suggestions. Even though miles away in India, I have found no logistical difficulties in connecting for the supervision over Skype. I wish she continues this superb work and helps many more trainees like me.”

“I highly recommend Julie Cochrane as both a psychotherapist and teacher/supervisor.   As a therapist, Julie is remarkably attuned and attentive. She helps each client find their personal growth edge with her warm, understanding presence and productive focus. As a supervisor, Julie has a gift for helping therapists identify their personal learning blocks and compassionately guiding them through to improved effectiveness. Julie is highly sensitive to differences of culture, race, gender, etc., and treats every client and trainee as a unique person.

Do yourself a favour and see Julie!”
