I believe that we all have the capacity to learn, develop and change at any point in our careers. 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. Raising a family in parallel with my career has given me personal experience of walking the work/life balance tightrope – including returning to work after maternity leave and career break, and changing career direction.

Through all my professional roles I’ve enjoyed coaching, mentoring and developing people. I’ve seen that great coaching can have an empowering, transformative effect.

I’ve been a full-time professional coach since 2017, dedicated to working with each client to explore their potential and achieve their hard-to-reach goals. I’ve coached hundreds of leaders from Europe, Africa, Asia and the US in all industry sectors – private, public, charity and IGO – from individual entrepreneurs, people on the first rung of their career through to senior managers and people either seeking to reach the C-suite in larger companies or those who are already there.

In my spare time, I’m a fitness and tennis fanatic. I’m also a music lover. Having stopped playing the clarinet 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 major concerts and venues at home and abroad. I’m a fluent French speaker and love discovering new French films and TV. I also speak Spanish and am currently enjoying the challenge of learning Portuguese!


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.”
