About me

Hi, my name is Julie.
I am a Life Coach & NLP Practitioner who specialises in helping people with confidence & anxiety issues. Having suffered with both myself, I understand how much they can impact our lives. Through my own journey with coaching, I have completely transformed my relationship with anxiety & confidence and I can help you do the same.
You are not your anxiety, you just have a particular relationship with your anxious feelings.

I will empower you learn to trust yourself & your abilities to regain control over your life.

If anxiety & lack of confidence is keeping you stuck, I will help you navigate through your journey to a happier you equipping you with tools, knowledge & understanding.

  • Alleviate your anxiety & overthinking
  • Increase your confidence
  • Increase your sense of self-worth
  • Improve relationships
  • Improve work life
  • Feel happier, more content & enjoy your life!

 I offer clients a warm, confidential, encouraging space to work through whatever issues they are facing. I will help you look at your current way of thinking about certain challenges, locating unhelpful thought patterns to discover a more resourceful state to move you from where you are now to where you want to be.

Most importantly, as your coach, I provide a non-judgemental, confidential space for my clients to be truly listened to; a place to share their dreams and face their fears. It is in this space that new ideas are sparked, plans created and once insurmountable steps and broken down into manageable actions.

"Julie literally changed my life, I was stuck in victim mentality, blaming everyone else for things going wrong, and stuck in a horrific negative mindset and driving people away. Julie was always in my corner, showing me how to deal with the rubbish, bigging me up and being my biggest cheerleader. She’s given me the tools I need to deal with the negative mindset, helped me improve my confidence and made me see my own worth, and she absolutely improved my life for the better.  You only have one life and you need to live it the best you can, and Julie can help you with it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and will definitely go back if I things get on top of me! Thanks for everything"
