BA (Hons) Fine Art (Painting), Post Grad Dip Art Therapy

Balanced Practice Manager


Julie joined the Balanced team as Practice Manager in February 2016.

She contemplated many careers from aircraft engineering to teaching before defecting to the East (coast) to attend Duncan of Jordanston College of Art in Dundee for her original degree in Fine Art Painting.

Julie moved to Edinburgh in 1993 to continue her studies – qualifying as an Art Therapist in 1995. She then worked in the voluntary sector for over 20 years gaining further qualifications in training and experience in management in her role as Training and Development Manager.

Julie enjoys swimming, dancing, tennis (mostly in the form of swingball) and walking – sometimes even venturing so far as to participate.

A terrible advert for Balanced she is absolutely rubbish at Pilates but is kept on purely for her love of an excel spreadsheet and her talent for folding towels neatly.
