Transformative, empowering, challenging and self-explorative are each terms that describe the breadth of Julie’s practice and my particular experience with her. Her ability to listen and actually hear you is extraordinary and essential to effecting a successful coaching relationship. Julie’s approach is not cliched or standardised at all and it consequently feels as though her practice is entirely tailored towards my growth and self-awareness. In particular I have found that Julie’s background and experience lends itself to Corporate work and she fully appreciates the specific challenges facing women in positions of leadership.
Through my journey with Julie I have found my inner voice and can honestly say that I have a greater understanding of myself. So many of us go through life on autopilot, and, until I met Julie, I was at times a passenger in my own life. Julie has helped me to understand my triggers, emotional state and default responses to situations. This heightened introspection has made, and continues to make, me strive towards being the best version of myself.
Julie has an extraordinary ability to absorb great levels of information, digest it and relay the key points back in a succinct and articulate form, cutting directly to the core of the issue. This skill, which in my experience is lacking in most people, ensures that resultant discussions are relevant and appropriate time is spent on them. Having said that, I’m certain that many of my sessions have overrun but I have never been abruptly cut off or felt that my needs have failed to be met.
I now view my life as pre and post Julie. What started as executive leadership coaching has transformed into life coaching and positive self-expression. Her insight, experience, manner and ability to give opinions without judgment or bias underpins the safe and accepting coaching environment that she creates.
I could continue ad infinitum as Julie is one of the most extraordinary people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. There are not enough superlatives to fully describe her talents. Would I recommend Julie? Without pause although I am concerned that her brilliance, once widely known, will make her less available to me! She is Captain Marvel.
