About Julie

I have always had an interest in helping people, even as a child. I have also always been one of those people that strangers pop up out of nowhere and start telling their life stories or their problems too. So I suppose it was just natural for me to go into the area of life coaching and counselling. I am very much a people person and love nothing better than seeing someone get things sorted out in their lives. Don't get me wrong I have had my ups and downs in life as well, including where I lost almost 12 months of my life due to major health problems. I do however have an amazing ability though to pick myself up and get back on with life and this is what I like to do with people!

Over the past 16 years I have worked with a variety of people and problems and have helped many individuals pick their lives up and get back on track. I have also been the instigator of setting up of a number of support groups for both adults and teenagers to help them deal with stress, depression and separation issues.

Last year I worked with an amazing group of 20 teenagers that where going through some real issues in regards to body issues, bullying, lack of confidence and motivation. A few of them had even considered suicide because of their issues. They where an amazing group to work with and I was so proud of their acheivments at the end of the year. They were like different people and so full of life and all I can say to them is thank you all for such a wonderful experience.

My Coaching and Work Experience

I have been working in the coaching area on and off for the past 16 years in the area of stress. I currently work with individuals for stress issues and for about 5 years ran weekly group sessions for people that struggled with stress in there lives. For the past 7 years I have been undertaking a large majority of work in the legal area of relationship breakdowns in families. A large part of this has been in regard to the area of children and unworkable relationships. I have also worked with children that are going through their own struggles in life whether it is to do with family, school or their own personal issues, and have found my real life training skills to work wonderfully with them. 

Another large part of my work has also been in the undertaking of weight loss and helping people to feel comfortable in their own skin. This also includes the areas of motivation, confidence, and procrastination. To do this I use my coaching skills to change the unwanted feelings or behaviour. This combined with the added advantage of being an NLP practitioner and qualified clinical hynotherapist. These skills give me the opportunity to offer them other ways to explore any issues they have around problem areas in a way that is comfortable to them. 

I also work around the area of weight loss and quit smoking with life coaching and counselling as well as being qualified to undertake hypnotherapy if requested.

    When my mother first talked to about me seeing Julie as a coach, I thought she was crazy. But it has been the best thing I have ever done. I have lost 26kg of my weight, she has taught me ways to deal with bullies and even better I have a direction to go in my life rather than just wanting to drop out of school. Julie is so easy to talk to and she has given me so much support, encouragement and guidance. I am so thankful to her for being my coach.


  • Wonderful! from Ronnee on 09 Jul 2015

    I've had the pleasure of Julie's expertise in helping me with a couple of personal issues. Julie has the ability to see into the problem from angles I had not considered, giving me refreshing new insight and as soon as the very next day I began to see positive changes happen. I highly recommend her.

    My wife and I have had some major issues in the past few years. Julie has coached both of us in regards to our relationship. Our relationship has improved so much in every area. Julie has taught us strategies in communication. The little things no longer bother us because through coaching we realise that our values and the overall picture of our relationship is what is important to both of us. We are both greatful for finding her when we did as divorce was on the cards. Coaching has done us the world of good and we would be happy to recommend her to anyone as she gives so much of herself to her clients

    Finding it always hard to relax in general, working in a busy corporate life my mind is always thinking. Julie brought me into a deep relaxation, and helped me to delve into my problems of cigarette and alcohol addiction. I was amazed that she was able to gain my trust and lead my body into a state of relaxation that I had not experienced since I was a care-free child. Through my visits I found it amazingly easy to stop my need for smoking, and better yet have learnt how to let go of my burdens and truly relax. It is also now possible for me to let go of my thoughts that create unnecessary stress.

    I suffer from severe nerve pain in both of legs and at times the pain is very intense almost crippling to the point that I can hardly walk. I started seeing Julie about 5 months ago for pain management therapy and since this time I have had real relief. I now no longer take pain killers every night and feel so much better in myself. She is always courteous, professional and caring and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her to any one that needs help in this or any other area.
