Hi, I’m Judi Barwick

Accredited Mental Health Social Worker
B.Soc.Wk. (Hons. Cl. 1)

I am one of the founders of The Counselling Spot Brisbane. I believe that each person has an existing part inside that can help them to heal. I am a dedicated Counsellor, and I will walk, run, or crawl beside you and help you find these parts. The Counselling Spot is a place to solve problems, heal and learn to believe in yourself.

People who have had Counselling with me have described me as a welcoming person who puts people at ease. My aim is to give you a safe space to open up and talk. I really want to get to know you and your concerns, big and small, so that we can work towards healing together. I offer relationship therapy to individuals, couples, and families. 

As a trauma-informed counsellor, I work with people who have complex PTSD. I also have experience with Neurodiverse Relationships such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Learning disabilities or neurological issues. My expertise centers around complex topics such as Abuse, Sexuality Issues, Grief, and Loss. 

My approach to therapy is very forward-thinking, and I love to learn about ongoing neuroscience. I like to provide the latest credible therapeutic models to my practice. I have always had a passion for developing my knowledge of trauma and relationships. Relationships can be complex, and no relationship is the same. 

At The Counselling Spot, I invite you to go as fast or as slow or as quietly as you need to so that you can feel safe. I won’t force you to talk about anything uncomfortable until you are ready. I think I am an honest, practical, open, and compassionate counsellor. I understand how hard it can be to face feelings as big as the Titanic.

As an experienced Counsellor, I truly understand that sometimes we need to find the right Therapist. A person that we can trust and feel safe with. I will be honest with you, and I will seek the best people to help you. I am surrounded by a strong team of highly educated and experienced therapists at The Counselling Spot.
