Julie Cochrane is a certified ISTDP supervisor who offers supervision in person and via Zoom to mental health professionals.


“Julie is an exceptional supervisor who works hard to ensure you gain the most from supervision.   She is compassionate but challenging and gets the dose just right to maximise your learning and development.   This is what supervision should be like.”
-Dr David Spektor
Clinical Psychologist
The University of Melbourne

“I have immensely benefited from her observations and suggestions regarding my clients.   Julie has a very meticulous attention to detail about the technique of ISTDP.   She has a step by step approach to apply the theory and technique to the client’s problems.   She has encouraged me to follow the moment by moment interventions and I have seen amazing results emerge from following up on her suggestions.   Even though miles away in India, I have found no logistical difficulties in connecting for the supervision over Skype.   I wish she continues this superb work and helps many more trainees like me”

The three-day Introductory Workshop in ISTDP was a game changer. This approach is profound, and perhaps the nearest thing to a road map out of suffering that I have come across. As teacher of the workshop, Julie was compassionately attuned to the needs of participants, and meticulous in communicating the philosophy and real-world practice of ISTDP. It was an experience of true immersion, under the guidance of a master therapist. I am grateful, and strongly recommend this workshop for any aspiring mental health professional who seeks to be an agent of positive change in the lives of his or her patients.”

“I highly recommend Julie Cochrane as both a psychotherapist and teacher/supervisor.   As a therapist, Julie is remarkably attuned and attentive.   She helps each client find their personal growth edge with her warm, understanding presence and productive focus.   As a supervisor, Julie has a gift for helping therapists identify their personal learning blocks and compassionately guiding them through to improved effectiveness.   Julie is highly sensitive to differences of culture, race, gender, etc., and treats every client and trainee as a unique person.  Do yourself a favour and see Julie!”

“I was quite literally using the language the very next day with clients
and have continued to grow in my confidence in really being of specific and practical help . . . “
