About Julia D'Orazio
_IR_6285.JPG

I’m Julia, a Perth based Accredited Social Worker and mum to a gorgeous little girl. I work in many capacities to provide perinatal and family support, including perinatal therapy, infant sleep support, postpartum planning, NDIS social work, and counselling.

I believe every woman deserves to enjoy and feel supported in their parenting journey. I want you to feel heard, validated and supported. You were not meant to do it alone. 

 

I collate my knowledge, skills and experience as a social worker, along with my understanding of the social and cultural aspects of motherhood to provide evidence-based support and proven strategies to guide your journey.

I felt called to working with women and families after my own experience of having a baby left me struggling. Even with my professional knowledge and resources, I found the early parenting journey to be an extremely difficult time… But it doesn’t have to be!

I am a matricentric feminist, providing a woman centred care model with a strengths-based approach. I am passionate about boosting connection and healthy relationships in families in order to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

 

With you at the centre of my work, I will help you to recognise your strengths and abilities, and tune into your intuition and values, to guide your mothering. This will help you feel relaxed, confident and connected to yourself, your child and your village.

I have a Master of Social Work from UWA and I'm an Accredited Social Worker with the Australian Association of Social Workers. 

I have completed several specialised training courses focusing on infant and perinatal mental health, infant sleep support and parenting:

  • Perinatal and Infant Mental Health training through the Centre for Perinatal Psychology;

  • Lyndsey Hookway Holistic Sleep Coaching (mini) course;

  • Neuroprotective Developmental Care under the former Possums charity;

  • Motherhood Studies Trained Practitioners course through Dr Sophie Brock; and

  • Julia Jones's Newborn Mothers Collective.

 

In addition to this, I have completed the NDIS Worker Orientation Module and have an NDIS Worker Screening Check.

I believe collating my knowledge, skills and experience, along with my understanding of the social and cultural aspects of motherhood can transform your parenting experience.
