About Dr Julie Smith
Julie Smith is a Clinical Psychologist, chartered by the British Psychological Society and registered by the Health Care Professions Council. She is a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP).
A career in mental health spanning 13 years has seen Julie working in both the National Health Service (NHS) and founding her own private practice. In addition to providing assessments and therapy, she has engaged in research, teaching, supervision of trainee psychologists and support for a range of healthcare professionals.
"During my NHS career I was privileged to work with the full spectrum of psychological experiences and mental health problems using a wide range of evidence-based models of therapy. Since establishing my own private practice I now work with people who are probably a lot like you. Everyday people with everyday problems who want to find a way to make life easier and more fullfilling. People come to me for help with issues ranging from stress and anxiety, depression and relationship problems, to those who seek coaching and support to reach their full potential and enhance their life.
Therapy can be a pivotal and life changing experience for those who are fortunate enough to be able to access it. As a Psychologist I see, hidden in academic journals and behind the closed doors of the therapy room, a world of knowledge about how human beings work that can help us to live well and thrive. I created this site and my YouTube channel, not to replace therapy, but as a resource of psychoeducation."
