Hello, my name is Julian O’Sullivan

My work focuses on adult (18+) mental health. I provide psychotherapy to clients in various states of distress and confusion about how to resolve it. They are often caught up in unhelpful ways of coping (e.g., social withdrawal, avoidance, addictive behaviours) which only compound the problem. They may feel helpless to understand and resolve these issues without assistance.


I work with people enduring anxiety and depression, personality disorders, eating disorders, trauma and dissociative disorders, or addictive behaviours. I help those suffering from grief and loss, trauma, identity or existential crisis, relationship difficulties, work stress, motivational problems, identity issues, social alienation, withdrawal, isolation, loneliness, difficulties with culture or migration, and anger management issues. I have a special interest in trauma. I have published research in trauma and post-traumatic growth. I have experience in psychotherapy with refugees with war and torture related trauma. I have worked with young adults with developmental trauma and family of origin issues. Therefore, I have developed a keen interest in providing therapy to people suffering from trauma. As well as trauma, I enjoy helping clients experiencing performance related problems. These include, amongst others, procrastination, fear of failure, motivational issues, and work-life balance. I have experience helping people overcome psychological barriers to returning to work. I work with those suffering from workplace stress that it is impeding performance. My therapeutic style is to listen with empathy and thoughtfulness. Clients are invited to speak freely about whatever is on their mind without judgement.


I will make comments, which draw predominantly on cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic principles, to help my clients develop capacities to overcome their psychological difficulties. This usually involves uncovering, and learning ways of intervening in, unhelpful thought processes, behavioural and relationship patterns, which underlie the client’s psychological distress.
