Dr Julia Parsonson is a Registered Psychologist and member of the Meditation Association of Australia, with over 10 years experience in the education and psychology sectors.
After completing her undergraduate degree in Psychology she went on to train as a teacher (PGCE) and worked both as a full time teacher and relief teacher before embarking on a career as a psychologist.
