Work with me to regenerate your energy, health, social connection, purpose and emotional and social well-being.

Work with me to find your thing or your things: the things that energise and excite you. Finding your thing or things can be the most radical thing you can do for your own well-being and for the well-being of the planet.

I am an author, educator and researcher who coaches individuals and organisations to find more regenerative ways of living and working in order to support the health of all peoples, the-more-than human world and future generations.

My work is based on wisdom from science, psychology, somatic approaches, sociology, research and relationship.

'For me coaching is creating a space where someone helps you to navigate your own thoughts and allow you to feel what you need to feel. '

The coaching support I received from Julie was second to non and I can honestly say that the training course would have been a lot more difficult without her input. During my experience of training, I found that Julie was there for me emotionally when I faced personal challenges and academically when I needed direction. Julie picked me up at my lowest points, encouraging me along the way, and always listening in a non-judgemental manner. Julie’s life coaching skills have helped me to reflect and celebrate successes and to resist perfection. Now I am fully qualified I use the skills that Julie taught me so that I am able to fully enjoy my work alongside a healthy work life balance, and I treat myself often!

'Coaching (and Julie!) has helped me to understand myself better, to appreciate myself for all I have been able to accomplish and to work on the parts that I feel do not serve me. My thought process has changed a lot during the last year, I still sometimes have negative thoughts or self doubt but I am able to look at them objectively and don't end up catastrophizing. I knew it was ok not to be ok but I am not much more comfortable with what that actually means in my life. '

Coaching has enabled me to become more self aware and recognise and build upon my strengths, giving me greater confidence in my work setting

I learned to look at things from a different view which made such a difference

Learning to meditate made such a difference

Thank you so much for your time, we all thought you were brilliant and we also agreed that once we have agreed our direction of travel and are ready to share it with the rest of the team we feel that having you do something similar for the team in the morning will really be beneficial. There was a lot of love and respect in the room after you left which really helped us move forward in the afternoon

I've really learned not to worry so much about what other people think

Retelling classic stories isn’t something new however, it takes a highly talented author to take real life examples of modern day abuse, co-dependence and domestic violence rewrite them as classic fairy tales

Into The Woods does not invite us to judge either the men or the women. Instead it takes us though life journeys of dashed hopes, danger, and fear; of untold human suffering and despair of the kind that far too many women experience

May these tales provide courage, hope and an opportunity for change and in doing so awaken future generations of women to their full potential

'I would like to sincerely thank you for everything that you have done for me during this year. Due to the pandemic and the constant changes, it has been extremely stressful and difficult; however, thanks to your support I have been able to refocus my goals and prioritize. I have worked on my emotions and tried to listen to them instead of rejecting what my mind and body were trying to tell me. I am so grateful to have met you, you have played an important part in my journey, and I am sure that everyone would benefit from your coaching. Thank you again, this experience would not have been the same without you. You have been amazing and you have helped me in a really tough time I will be forever grateful.'

"Coaching sessions with Julie have been invaluable as a part of my training. They are an opportunity to get everything that has been stressing you out off of your chest and receive some helpful advice on how to stop stressing out in the future! Julie always makes sure that you take away practical things from the session that you can implement in your life going forwards to help you cope with situations that you can find difficult."

'I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for being my lifeline throughout my training last year and as we headed into the Pandemic. Your role is truly invaluable. You were a shoulder to cry on, a realistic empathiser and so wonderful at bringing me back down to earth when I felt completely overwhelmed with information. ' Your practical yet sensitive advice was very much needed amongst the chaos and many of the techniques you taught me continue to help me now as a teacher and will for life.'

'You have given me the permission I wasn’t always able to give myself. '

'Julie is without a doubt an expert in her field of work. She shared specific strategies with our group to sustain our physical and mental health and in turn a good work-life balance. She taught us how to categorise personal commitments by their importance/urgency, which was a blessing when my ‘to-do’ list seemed overburdening.'

'"Julie has been such a real help to me and I have really enjoyed working with her. Coaching has been most beneficial. As somebody who has struggled with being confident and taking ownership, Julie has been indispensable. We have talked about finding voice and coming to terms with adversity. She has helped me massively and would recommend her coaching to anybody. Thank you Julie!"
