Welcome to my website. I am Dr Julie Hannan, a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Accredited Psychotherapist. I have been working as a private practitioner for over 10 years with adults on an individual basis who are experiencing difficulties. I offer face-to-face therapy from my private clinic in Alvechurch and via Skype.
Having worked previously in the finance industry in Birmingham and then as a Director and Board member of a multi-national financial organisation in Jersey, I retrained as a psychologist in my 30’s working as a Director and Trustee at a voluntary counselling organisation in Birmingham and at several NHS hospitals in the West Midlands and founded a successful private mental health clinic, Morency Therapy in Birmingham.
I have worked with many clients over the years who presented with a variety of different difficulties (anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship breakdown, work stress, childhood sexual abuse, burnout).
I have a very positive optimistic approach to working with clients and believe that in the right environment anything is possible. I really enjoy my work and believe that enabling people to make desired changes in their lives can be an empowering experience for them.
