Jules Ku-Lea, BA, MCP, CCC, is a registered counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (Reg #10001345).
Her previous experience includes 15 years in the mental health and wellness field. Prior to becoming a therapist, Jules worked as a mental health worker on Vancouver's Downtown East Side helping clients with addiction and severe mental illness. She completed her counseling internship at Royal Columbian Hospital, working with mothers who were experiencing antenatal and postpartum anxiety and depression. Jules opened up Kulea Counselling in 2016 and has since been serving the North Shore and Whistler community as a psychotherapist.
Jules is an active meditation and mindfulness practitioner and has studied in monasteries across the world; including India, Thailand, Burma, and Sri Lanka. She uses evidence-based practices to nudge her clients in the right direction. Including Attachment-Based theories (the Neufeld Approach and Emotion-Focused Therapy), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassionate Inquiry, Polyvagal Theory, and Mindfulness-Based interventions.
Jules specializes in helping clients who have anxiety, depression, and are feeling stuck. She also works with parents to help navigate the murky waters of pregnancy and parenthood. Jules has three young children; and understands the joy, gratification, and heart-melting moments of parenting, as well as the exhaustion, frustration, and pull-your-hair out moments, and the impact raising babies can have on families.
Her primary focus in session is building a therapeutic relationship— where the client feels accepted, safe, and free to explore their inner world. Together, we learn tools to manage the unpleasant symptoms of anxiety, depression, and life; and uncover the layers to find the root cause. Through our sessions, the client will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and learn tools they can use for a lifetime.
Jules believes the path to a full and meaningful life emerges when we acknowledge where we are at, get clear with our values, and commit to mindful action. She is dedicated to helping her clients thrive.
In her free time you can find Jules outdoors savoring nature with her family and being mom to her 3 young children.
"Jules was the first counsellor I ever consulted with and I was feeling very nervous. She put me at ease and I felt very comfortable to share my struggles. She was very effective at helping me laser in on my problems and come up with actionable steps. I would highly recommend Jules."
"I was having a break-down early this year because I was saying yes to too many things. The biggest benefit of working with Jules is the transformation she helped me reach. After three sessions, I have transformed from someone who couldn’t even think about saying no to someone who can set firmer boundaries. I highly recommend working with Jules. Her dedication, knowledge, professionalism, creative counselling skills, and fun energy will bring out the best...YOU!"
"Jules is someone that you only need to meet once, but you'll remember forever. I was intrigued by her authenticity, warmth, teaching skills, and knowledge of anxiety and depression. Jules’s professionalism and enthusiasm made the whole workshop a very fun, yet transformative process."
“I wasn’t very satisfied with my life when I first contacted Jules. Now, after just a few sessions, I have a game plan and am starting to feel less stuck. Jules is knowledgeable, playful, professional, and she really cares. I can’t recommend these counselling sessions enough.”
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
