Julia Goodall

MBACP Psychotherapist

I am a registered psychotherapist working in Godalming and Haslemere, Surrey.

I work with individuals and couples, offering a safe, inclusive, non-judgemental space to explore and work through challenging life events or experiences.

I believe that everyone should have at least one experience of therapy in their lives and that having this space can deepen self-awareness and allow us to inhabit our lives and relationships in more connected and meaningful ways.

I work with individuals and couples going through:

  • Life transitions (having children, death, divorce, moving)
  • Feeling they have grown apart after having children
  • Struggling to connect
  • Affairs
  • Wanting better communication skills
  • Grief and Loss
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Loneliness
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Parenting Support
  • Personality Disorders
  • PTSD and Trauma
  • Self-Harm
  • Sexual abuse and rape
  • Shame and Guilt
  • Stress management

I have a special interest in relationships and how the quality of our relationships affect all aspects of our lives.


I trained and began my career in South Africa, where I worked in the public health system, and then later went on to open my own private practice. While in the public health system, I focused my work predominantly around perinatal mental health, running a psychology clinic at a local community health centre, as well as running training workshops and providing support groups for medical staff. In this setting, I worked with people experiencing extremely high levels of trauma, and I was equipped to help clients work through traumatic events or experiences.

In my private practice, I also worked with new and expecting parents around various perinatal mental health difficulties, offered couples sessions, and saw a range of people from different backgrounds with varying mental health and relationship difficulties.

I was an active member of the Cape Town Psychoanalytic Self Psychology Group and a registered Babies in Mind practitioner.

I’m trained to see a range of clients with varying degrees of difficulties. I have a special interest in perinatal mental health (I include both partners in my treatments if clients are comfortable with this), infertility, depression, anxiety and personality disorders. I also see people who are functioning in their daily lives, but are feeling ‘stuck’ in some way, or those that are ready to process a previous life experience or trauma.

I offer family and couples sessions – please discuss these with me so we can decide on the best format for these sessions.

I also work with people who are grieving, struggling with issues around identity, and those who have experienced trauma.

Training, qualifications & experience
