About me

I’ve been a teacher, a trainer, an adviser, a manager, a leader, a consultant and a coach.  I’ve also been studying most of my life and coaching brings it all together.  As a coach I love drawing on my experience while being completely in the moment: listening, questioning, reflecting, making connections and, at times, challenging.

·         If you are feeling stuck, I can help you find a way out of the loop.

·         If you are facing a challenge in your life, I can help you find a fresh approach to it.

·         If you have a goal that you can’t reach, I can help you overcome the barriers that have been holding you back.

·         If you are struggling with a decision, I can help you work out your options to help you make it.

·         If you are seeking a change but you can’t quite work out where to start, I can help you get on your journey.

I draw on a range of practical and theoretical frameworks and I have participated in deep, experiential group work which means I think about the group and your context when I work with you.  But most of all, the basis of all my coaching is in the relationship with you, the client.

If you think I could help, I’d love to hear from you.

Recent testimonials:

'She is brilliant, a very good listener and a patient person. She asks you simple questions that lead you to find your own answers and a sense of direction. She helped me to focus on the points of strength in my character, and I am much more motivated to achieve my goals and I feel less stress regarding my PhD study, more focus on what I have.' (3rd year PhD student, Birkbeck, University of London)

'Before the session I was nervous about my future, but I feel so much calmer and I am looking forward to whatever happens next!' (participant in coaching workshop)

Julie gave me practical, concrete strategies for dealing with situations and tasks I found difficult. It’s been a hugely valuable experience, and has changed the way I work, to the benefit of others as well as myself. (Senior Administrator, LSE)
