I believe that we all have the capacity to learn, develop and change directions throughout our lives. My own experience bears this out.

I spent nearly 20 years in management in global blue-chip companies, and developed particular expertise in strategic change, communications and project management. I bring an insider’s knowledge of the challenges involved in navigating change, uncertainty and career development within organisations. I also have experience in academic research and language teaching.  And raising a family in parallel with my career has given me personal experience of walking the work/life balance tightrope. I have returned to work after career breaks (in my case into challenging corporate environments) and changed career direction.

Through all my business roles, I’ve enjoyed coaching, mentoring and developing people. I’ve seen that great coaching can have an empowering, transformative effect.  That’s why I’m now dedicated to working as an independent coach.

This means I can use all my skills and experience to support my clients – who come from a wide range of backgrounds, ages and nationalities.  I’m a volunteer Next Steps Mentor with the Prince’s Trust, which has really broadened my awareness of the different types of challenges that people can face in life and work.

In my spare time, I enjoy cinema, theatre and art. As a fluent French speaker, I love discovering new French films and TV dramas. I’m also a keen clarinettist. Having stopped playing after school, I took it up again and benefited from fantastic, personalised coaching which enabled me to take my playing to a new level and play with others in concerts at home and abroad. And as a long-term member of British Military Fitness, I’m often to be found doing press-ups in the mud before dawn!


I will create a personalised coaching programme for you, using a blend of tools and techniques to suit your unique needs. I’ve trained in a range of high-quality methods that focus on supporting you to achieve real change by building your confidence, exploring new perspectives, and developing your talents and abilities. You can be sure of the professionalism and confidentiality of my approach. As a member of two professional coaching bodies, I’m signed up to develop my compentece on a continuing basis and to hold to a clear code of ethics.

“I’ve learned so much from Julia! Her positive energy, motivation and professional approach helped me to focus on my strengths and to boost. After only three sessions with Julia, I can feel the difference and see my real potential. I believe I will feel more confident and positive about life. Thank you Julia!”


“I have been fortunate enough to have had three coaching sessions with Julia which I’m delighted to say have been very beneficial.  I have found her personable, sensitive style and professional, disciplined approach a very effective combination.  I would therefore highly recommend Julia as a coach.”


“Julia’s ability to both empathize and bring a sound professional insight into each coaching session allowed me to understand my current situation and develop a roadmap toward my goals with actionable steps to execute upon to reach them. This has helped me enormously both personally and professionally.”
