Hello, I’m Julia and am passionate about helping people reach their true potential. Years ago I worked as a probation officer in London, working with a wide range of offenders and enjoyed the challenge of helping them move from where they were to where they wanted to be. Since moving to Bristol I coach many people to reach their personal goals.
I studied drama at the City Lit in London as well as at Bristol University. I combine my love of coaching and drama, working as a public speaking coach and trainer helping people overcome their fears, build their confidence and speak with ease and impact. I enjoy working with a wide variety of people from actors to students to CEOs of major companies and everyone in between. I am increasingly going into companies and organisations working with their team to transform their relationship with public speaking and presentations.
BSc (Hons) Degree in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Social Work, Practitioner in Neuro-linguistic-programming, Coaching qualification from the Mind Store School of Coaching, LAMDA drama examination -distinction, Actor Training at Bristol University, qualified as a Qi Gong Teacher, PTTLS (Preparing to teach in the Life Long Learning Sector) qualification.
Although I loved my work as a probation officer it eventually took its toll on me and I suffered from burn out. This was a challenging time, although one which has influenced and inspired me greatly. As someone who lost virtually everything in her life and was invisible in the world I turned a corner and began to rebuild my life.
My journey towards becoming more visible and present in the world reflects the journey of many of my clients. I absolutely believe that we all have a right to occupy our legitimate place in the world, find our voice and make an impact upon others. With the right training and support, we can not only do this, but also do it with confidence, flair and conviction.
My mission in life is to help you reach your true potential. I enjoy helping people move beyond their fear of speaking in front of others to enjoying being the centre of attention and also to help people speak with impact, clarity and gravitas. Please get in touch if you would like me to help you or your team.
