Julie & Emma - Your psychologists

"For me, being a psychologist is
a passion and a priviledge. Working with people towards better mental health and more engaged lives is deeply satisfying."

- Julie Mounter

Julie Mounter

 

For me, being a psychologist is both a passion and a privilege. I'm here to help you explore your personal challenges and find the best ways to move forward and achieve your potential to lead a happy, engaged and confident life.

 

My past work life and experience – everything that that has led me to psychology –  include 15 years as an osteopath, lecturing in educational institutions, consulting, developing training content for organisations like Ambulance Victoria and volunteering as a telephone crisis support worker with Lifeline.
