About me

I'm an experienced Career and Leadership Coach, working with leaders and aspiring leaders to feel more confident and overcome their imposter syndrome. I coach those who want to develop their own leadership style and brand, or who want to get unstuck and figure out what their next career move is and how to get there.

I experienced burnout personally having worked in corporate employment in leadership and executive positions for nearly 20 years. I now help my clients prevent or recover from burnout, reduce stress, slow down in their lives and careers and create the work-life balance they desire.

Whatever you would like to work on, I will help you define it and find the path that is right for you because what may have worked for me or some of my clients, may not be right for you, so it is important that we create your own unique path on a coaching journey. 

My work is grounded in positive psychology which helps you to unlock your strengths and enhance your performance, resilience and well-being.

My strengths-based approach ensures clients are aware of and aligned to their strengths and values. That alignment creates clarity, meaningful goals, and enables clients to achieve their goals with ease and authenticity.

My coaching sessions are journeys of self-discovery and typically cover these 3 areas:

  • Discover your core identity – exploring and unlocking your strengths, values, beliefs, motivation, meaning and purpose
  • Discover your goal – defining a meaningful goal that is aligned with your values and strengths
  • Discover your path – finding the unique path that is right for you.

My coaching style is empathetic, supportive and positive. I carefully challenge my clients to surface insights about themselves, others around them, and the environments they operate in.

Coaching sessions with me create clarity and insight and are also a positive and enjoyable experience. My work and coaching approach is strongly influenced by my core strengths and values of honesty, fairness, leadership, bravery, and humour.

Additional information

How to get started?

If coaching with me sounds like something that may be of benefit to you, then why don’t you book a free 30 -45 mins discovery call. During that call we get to know each other, I will tell you more about how I work, and you can tell me what you are hoping to achieve from coaching and I will also answer any questions you have. There is no commitment or obligation, you can take your time to think about whether coaching is the right approach for you and whether you would like to work with me.

If you decide to go ahead, then sessions can be scheduled flexibly to fit around your schedule and can be held online (with video or without) or in person (if that is possible).

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

I am typically available for coaching sessions from Monday to Friday, 9 am until 7 pm and Saturdays 9 am until 1 pm, but are flexible and will try my best to accommodate  your needs.

Here are some client testimonials:

AC, Project Coordinator, London:

"After I lost my job, I was at a crossroad trying to figure out what I really wanted to do. As soon as I started working with Julia she helped me tremendously in being honest with myself, understanding what I would love to do and not be afraid of it. She always provided useful insights, and I can genuinely say that I have felt uplifted, positive and more confident after every session we have had. Working with Julia has been life-changing for me." 

KO, retired, business founder and former Director and Managing Director, London:

“She is a highly effective coach with excellent listening skills. The sessions were both enjoyable in themselves and unlocked new insights and actions.  Julia challenged me beautifully, I felt seen, heard, supported and stretched throughout.  As a result of the coaching and insights gained from it, I changed my thinking and actions around the issues I was dealing with, which made a difference to my life. I would heartily recommend Julia as a Coach.”

KH, Coach and Mentor, Deal:

“Thank you, Julia, for your compassionate and insightful coaching when I was wanting to make some big changes in my life. You bring humanity and perspective with your presence and I especially appreciated your ability to keep me focused with endless patience and humour when I would want to explore yet another rabbit hole. Your support during my ADHD diagnosis journey has helped me both develop the necessary self-compassion to better ride the waves and develop my own map for a clearer way ahead. My progress over the last year has been more than I could have imagined and your clarity and belief in me has been a big part of that, thank you.

KH, Head of Alumni Engagement & Development Education, Bristol:

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Julia and the journey that we’ve been on.  I felt very comfortable working with her so closely, she’s very easy to work with.  Julia’s not only a great listener but always asked pertinent and often challenging questions whilst providing a safe space to answer them.  

When I started seeing Julia, I was at a crossroads with my career and felt stuck in a job which I enjoy but which had limited career progression.  Julia helped me to articulate my goal, leading to a new challenge and to create some change.  Over the months working with Julia, my self-confidence grew as I was able to reflect on my leadership qualities and demonstrate where I can add value across my organisation. The work we did on my signature strengths was particularly helpful as I began to understand what impact they have on myself and others.  The work with Julia enabled me to begin to influence senior colleagues and implement change in my team as well as across the organisation.”

KS, MSc Urban Design Candidate, Berlin

“I have always looked forward to the coaching sessions with Julia, because with her positive and emphatic nature, she gives you the feeling of docking in a safe harbour. My initial goal was to have a clear vision of the rest of my career at the end of the coaching. Julia and I approached the goal together in a way that suited me and through her great support, I feel recharged with self-confidence and self-assurance. With exciting and fun ways she supported me to align myself to my strengths and reinstate lightness and a basic sense of trust. In the sessions themselves, through mindful listening, smart questions and a positive mindset, she traced inner struggles that I could not articulate myself. In my mental clutter, she was the voice that could simplify complex and disjointed issues. The career coaching ultimately turned into a sustainable collaboration process that showed me how to most appropriately move through life.

Thank you Julia! I hope you can inspire many more people with your positive nature and support them on their way.”
