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.  Coaching brings everything I have learned together.  As a coach I love being able to draw on all of my experience while being completely in the moment with a client: listening, questioning, reflecting, making connections and occasionally challenging.

  • If you are asking yourself questions but not finding the right answers, I can help you find a way out of the loop.
  • If you are facing a challenge in your life, I can help you approach it with confidence and determination.
  • If you have a goal but never seem to achieve it, 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 how to 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 hold the group and the wider context in mind when I work with individuals.  But most of all, the basis of all my coaching is in the relationship with you, the client.

I agree with the poet John Greenleaf Whittier when he wrote,’For all the sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these: it might have been.’ Don’t put things off any longer!  Contact me!

Recent testimonials:

'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)
