    10 Questions with Julie Sweet

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • My own subjective experience of psychotherapy led me to choose psychotherapy as a profession. As I worked introspectively with my therapist, I was asked the miracle question, also known as the magic wand question. My answer revealed what I had known unconsciously for many years - my purpose and fulfilment lied in my current career. I still undergo psychotherapy; I find it personally and professionally invaluable. After all how can I ask something of others that I am not willing to engage in myself?
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • Several modalities and frameworks influence my practice as a psychotherapist. Attachment theory and trauma informed principles underpin my approach. As well family systems and person-centered therapies. I work with people from the understanding that they are the expert in their life. My aim is to empower others to achieve greater confidence, improved mental health and positive wellbeing.

    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • I predominately see clients who have experienced trauma. Single incident trauma, compound and complex trauma. I also work with adult survivors of child sexual abuse and domestic and family violence. I deal with various issues relating to family of origin and family systems. As well as people presenting with depression and anxiety, attachment disorders, addiction and substance abuse.
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • Therapy experiences are unique and vary from person to person. Whilst it can take time for individuals to feel the benefits of talk therapy, others can feel some level of progression after a number of sessions. That being said some report feeling positive impacts after a few months. With respect this may not be the case for everyone. Therefore it's imperative as a clinician that I check in with clients to ensure they're finding the process effective.
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • It comes back to self and therapy has caused me to examine myself, as both an individual and a therapist. It is a collaborative ongoing process and one that teaches me tools, strategies and learnings constantly. I have learned self awareness, gaining insight, bought the unconscious into the conscious by way of identifying triggers and consequently, establishing a healthy pathway of response, Accessing feelings whilst not becoming overwhelmed or flooded has been another lesson, along with acquiring self-regulation skills. Being curious and nonjudgmental has been a wonderful lens through which I have come to understand not only myself, yet others.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • There are so many aspects that cause me to love what I do and namely it is the privilege I have in bearing witness to others' stories. I feel an enormous amount of gratitude I am able to work along side people on their journeys and am humbled by the vulnerability I encounter. I am fortunate enough to work with people in both crisis and joy, through despair and hope, seeing the resilience of the human spirit.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • Of course, too many to mention. That is why I draw upon a collective group of people in my personal life and professional world to gain support from. Ironically enough it's the 'bad hair' days that provide me with growth even if they are confronting at times, for they are rich and let's be honest, they are inevitable.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • How we relate to one another. Our mental health is extremely important at every stage of our life span and it's worth our investment, not only in ourselves, in others as well. Raising mental health awareness is paramount in alleviating stigma and creating connectivity.
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    • To begin, the book I am reading at present and cannot put down is What Happened to You? By Bruce Perry and Oprah. The last podcast I listened to was with Glennon Doyle on Anxiety: Is it Just Love Holding Its Breath. An event I most recently attended was the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW. The art that inspires me most is Australian Aboriginal Art. Finally, I have had a resurgence in my enjoyment for Fleetwood Mac again.
