What our clients say

“I first came to know Julia when I stepped into a new role at work. Wow! What an amazing and transformative journey it has been. Julia is a highly skilled coach with a warm, engaging personality. It is really easy to talk to her about difficult issues. Julia is a gifted listener and able to uniquely distill what she hears into valuable, credible insight. She offers practical tools for problems – tools that are sometimes so simple but always so helpful. Through her insightful coaching I have come to value my strengths and my leadership style. Julia has helped me reflect on life, balance and happiness (and not just at work). I really appreciate her “whole life” approach.  Knowing myself better has really helped me and my engagements with others – thank you Julia! If you are looking to learn more about yourself and realize your potential, I highly recommend Julia.” Dr Jen M

“I first started coaching with Julia back in 2015, and her warmth, guidance, and attention to the emotional atmosphere will always keep me going back. She is an amazing coach, and she has the ability to speak to me straight-to-the-heart, giving me the real deal in a gentle way. Sessions with Julia are always a welcome break, and I know I can count on a good laugh and fresh perspective to get me out of a rut. She knows me so well, and the fact that she can recall little details of our sessions through the years always makes me feel at home and at ease. No judgment, no risk – I can always be honest with Julia, and I know she is honest with me. Our conversations are my safe space, home-away-from-home.” Hayley K

“I can’t thank my coach, Julia, enough for her caring support and her gentle, but firm, guidance throughout this journey. I have valued her sense of humour and ability to ask the difficult questions with sensitivity and care. She really knows how to listen to make one feel heard, understood and appreciated. After each session I was invigorated and inspired to achieve my goals. She spurred me to dig deeper and to get to the bottom of my recurring negative patterns and to find tools to overcome them, to develop self-awareness, to set early indicators to alert for any relapses, and ways to get back on track and to nurture and tap into my inner spirit and core strength on an ongoing basis. This time with her has been incredibly helpful and is likely to have a lasting impact on my life. I feel like I have changed for the better and am stronger for it.” Jenny W
