"Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom." (
Victor Frankl)

Hi, my name is John Julian and I am a clinical social worker with 40 years experience.  I am also a Trained Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) trainer by Monash University and a certified Teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) by the University of California San Diego Medical School, USA, as well as being one of the authors of several peer reviewed papers on Occupational Mindfulness (and soon on MSC and cancer).  

I discovered meditation and mindfulness over the last 30 years or more through various Buddhist schools in order to work with my own anxiety, but now teach it in a secular and practical way, both in groups  and one-to-one through Medicare and my private practice .   If I can be of any help then please email me on john.julian56@gmail.com or on my mobile 0439 901 795

I provide mindfulness and self-compassion training, as well as one to one counselling, in Belgrave and South Gippsland.

I provide regular introductory programs,8-week groups on MBSR/MBCT and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), day retreats and five-day intensive Mindful Self- Compassion retreats.
