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)

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
