About me

I work with people who want to develop strategies and understand their strengths so they can be at their best. Some of my clients have received a formal diagnosis of ADHD. Other clients do not but want to understand their brain and how they can boost their performance.

I'm often asked if I work with people who want to explore the impact of ADHD in their personal life. Yes, I do.  Personal issues can impact on work performance and not all of my clients are employed.

Client's typically want support to help them deal with a range of personal and professional challenges including:

  • what do I tell others about me and my ADHD;
  • making sense of a diagnosis;
  • dealing with procrastination;
  • relationship issues;
  • being late;
  • forgetting important things; and
  • managing emotional reactions.

ADHD coaching offers a safe and confidential space to focus on you. You'll come away from each session with practical strategies that you can start using straight away.

At the initial meeting, we will identify goals for the coaching programme. We will explore helpful and unhelpful patterns of behaviour and identify resources that you can use to change.

Clients tell me that I am skilled at asking powerful questions. I've seen powerful changes take place within sessions as clients shift the way they think about themselves and their problems. I challenge my clients to do things differently and discover more about how they work. Increased self-knowledge will enable you to achieve fantastic results.

I don't know about you and your situation. Get in touch to arrange a free 30-minute call. We can talk about where you are now and where you'd like to be.

What do clients say?

“Julie has a genuinely compassionate and patient approach to sessions, whilst constructively challenging patterns of behaviour which prove detrimental to both my immediate and longer term goals.

After a late diagnosis of ADHD, I spent a large portion of my adolescent, and adult life, exploring why I was different to my peers, subsequently becoming a relatively self-aware individual. As a result however, previous therapists seemed to fail at enlightening me, or helping me progress more than what I already could myself. My scepticism of “life coaching” and “therapy” was swiftly reinforced after several fruitless sessions with therapists, possessing insincere smiles and a book full of scripted responses.

When I finally acquired those missing pieces in the form of an ADHD diagnosis, I was keen to utilise this new information to help me achieve business goals, which is when I was introduced to Julie. Despite my previous experiences, I made a concerted effort to approach our initial session with an open mind and positive attitude, however, I immediately realised my efforts weren’t required, as Julie’s genuine interest in my aspirations and empathetic considerations of past hardships, assuredly affirmed that we’d work successfully together.

Several months of fortnightly sessions later, valuable realisations are still cropping up within sessions. Julie expertly employs an inquisitive approach, using questions which I’m initially dubious of, yet always to my surprise, allow me to arrive at well-considered conclusions. Albeit a common therapy technique, Julie is the first therapist I’ve worked with who has an innate ability to foresee just the right questions to ask for me to make novel conclusions and solid progress within each session.

Furthermore, Julie gently readjusts the topic of conversation when the traits of ADHD cause me to deviate from the session’s focus, as well as encourages me to set tangible objectives which makes use of the session’s musings.

Despite being a highly qualified specialist for those with ADHD, Julie’s authenticity as a person and ability to present just the right key with which to unlock new pieces of the ADHD puzzle, gives her a natural aptitude that qualifications alone can not achieve.”

“Thank you so much for your help and support. You have made me think positive and push myself to do things because you believe in me. II can do it and will have a successful career.”

Kayleigh, Bristol

“Thank you for the support and guidance in the session. You listened to me and helped me recognise my strengths.”

Louis, Bath

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your time, for teaching me ways to deal with things, for all the support you have given me and for being so approachable and easy to talk to and so much more. I have been on a roller coaster and genuinely don’t know how I would have coped without you. I have come so far and most of this is down to you and your techniques and abilities to make sessions suitable and individual for me. I cannot recommend the work you do enough to anyone who is going through a tough time.”
