We live in chaotic and uncertain times. It can be hard to feel that we are achieving everything we want to both in our lives and in our work. At times it can be challenging to even identify what we want in either our professional or personal lives. Coaching and working with me offers the potential to find solutions to regain some clarity.
Why would you choose me?
Coaching is about the relationship we create, and from me you can expect honesty, a safe space to talk, commitment, understanding and professionalism.
You bring the agenda and this is the core of our work together. I align and partner with you to enable the very best outcomes. My coaching approach is integrated. What this means is that I draw on different psychologically grounded coaching methodologies. These include: narrative- what story have you created for yourself about the situation and how/ if you want this to continue; psychodynamic– what unconscious processes are at play here and how can we bring these to light for you to work on; cognitive behavioural– identifying how you think about the problem and reframing this to be more supportive; developmental – enabling you to identify and make changes to grow and mature from your current situation; cross-cultural– enabling you to engage with change, uncertainty and complication without confusion, whether it be in a multi national organisation, a complexly structured workplace or a new country or culture; and solution focused methodologies– defining the problem/ situation and then constructing the most appropriate solution via goal setting and focussing on your resources.
The coaching process is unique to each individual; people are all at different points in their lives and/ or careers and are looking for different things. We will discuss and explore your situation and use the most appropriate coaching approaches and tools to get you the result that you want.
I offer both executive/ corporate coaching and life/ personal development coaching. Coaching in both these contexts can help you identify your goals, enable you to develop the confidence that you can achieve these, identify what is stopping you at present and explore ways that you can move forward. The difference in these frameworks is the context which you want to be coached within. I also offer interview practice for those wishing to develop their confidence and ensure that they can deliver their optimal performance in these potentially stressful situations.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an experienced professional life and executive coach with a background in social care and management. I have a busy and varied practice and partner with clients, both individual and corporate across geographies ranging from people wishing to return to the workplace after a career break through to senior executives. I work and attend training globally. I have my own coach and supervisor to assure best practice.
I am also trained and licensed to deliver the following psychometric testing:
The International Profiler™ (TIP)
This is aimed those who wish to develop their intercultural approaches and skills. It is a personal development process, including a self-assessment psychometric questionnaire which is followed by a detailed personal feedback report. We then discuss the report in a coaching session, with an action plan and follow up agreed.
The Energy Leadership Index Assessment (ELI)
This is an attitudinal assessment (as opposed to a personality test) which captures how you currently perceive and approach the world. This is a self-administered test which captures your unique results and creates a report for you. We then look at this report and using the information provided in the following coaching session we explore whether your current attitudes and perceptions are supporting you in your work and life. From this you have the opportunity to reassess your attitudes and take action to transform the way that you approach the world.
I am an accredited Professional Certified Coach (PCC) member of the International Coaching Federation and I abide by their Core Competencies (including ethical guidelines and professional standards).

What my clients have said about me:
"Being coached by Julia was very powerful. She offered me a wonderful self-development experience whilst helping me to address some blocks that were holding me back"
"Julia is very insightful and a wonderful listener. She is capable of asking just the right questions and then hears and translates what I am unconsciously not saying into actionable discussions. She helps me to look at problems in a different way and then find solutions that fit my needs, so I can meet my personal and professional objectives."
"Caring and pragmatic, Julia helped me to formulate a plan of what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go. Her genuinely warm and empathetic style of coaching has allowed me to focus on what is important to me. As a result I have started to take action, where previously I would have only thought about doing so. In turn, my confidence has grown. My whole family has felt the impact of me taking coaching with Julia. I would definitely recommend Julia to others."
