About Julianne…

Julianne Boutaleb CPsychol AFBPss is a passionate and highly experienced perinatal psychologist who has worked for over 15 years in the NHS and private practice with parents and parents-to-be and their babies. She is a member of the Birth Trauma Association and Association for Infant Mental Health and specialises in working therapeutically with birth trauma, PTSD and tokophobia (fear of giving birth) as these issues impact the mother, couple relationship and parent-infant attachment. In addition, she is also affiliated with BICA (British Infertility Counselling Association) and offers therapy to individuals and couples who are pregnant or are parenting following ART (IVF, ICSI, donor conception, surrogacy) or adoption. She draws on attachment, object relations theory and the Watch, Wait and Wonder model in her clinical practice. From 2003 to 2009, she was part of a multidisciplinary strategic health team that successfully established Sure Start services in East London. As part of that initiative she set up and ran a community based perinatal psychology service in Newham. From 2009 to 2015, she held clinical lead roles as Clinical Lead for Perinatal Mental Health in primary care and latterly in IAPT services in Newham. She has over 15 years’ experience teaching and training clinical and counselling psychologists, psychotherapists and other health professionals on issues of parental mental health, attachment, early years and positive mental health for babies and young children. Between 2003 to 2015, she was one of the few psychologists in the UK to offer a specialist perinatal psychology placement as part of the North Thames Clinical Psychology training programme. She has taught in these specialist areas on clinical and counselling psychology training courses in University of Essex and UEL and regularly speaks at specialist conferences on these issues. She is a BPC accredited DIT therapist and supervisor.
