Client Comments

Recently my husband and I had reached a significant crossroads.  We had some pretty huge life decisions to make about our jobs, family home and schools for our children.  I was completely overwhelmed and being an organised control freak, I was on very unfamiliar territory. I agonised over making the wrong decision or worse making no decision at all. Working with Julia really enabled me to unpick the hugeness of it all! The sessions gave me significant, focussed time and space to work through how I was going to move forward. I highly recommend Julia’s coaching services, her wisdom, calm and clear approach really makes a difference. 

At the beginning of my coaching sessions with Julia I had a long held personal goal I wished to reach but never enough time to make it possible. Julia understood the situation very quickly and by asking the right questions she was able to guide me in making a realistic long term plan which will allow me to reach my goal. I now manage my time much more efficiently which means I’m more organised and this in turn frees up the time I need to work towards reaching my goal. I feel much more positive and determined as a result.

Made sure I had clear goals and talked me through the barriers to not doing it – made me really think about options and what I needed to do.  Challenged me! Helped me put time frames around things to ensure I don’t bury my head but deal with things.

The most helpful thing has been being able to formulate my thoughts and verbalise my feelings without being judged or influenced.  You have summarised what I have said succinctly and made sense of what had sometimes been a jumble in my head.The relief of talking and working things out all at the same time has been enormous.You have sparked thought processes that have allowed me to work things out for myself and feel better about myself.I couldn’t even be bothered to think before.It all seemed too overwhelming.Having a focus for discussion instead of a moan with friends has been so beneficial.A moan is great, but doesn’t help you to make that next step.Setting targets has also been great.Someone asking “how did that feel?”, when nobody ever asks.
