"No matter who you are or the circumstances into which you are born, life isn't always easy"! 

Three decades of navigating my life and being fascinated by those around me doing the same thing, lead me to qualify as a Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioner, Master Practitioner NLP and Strategic Intervention Coach.

Now with more than a decade's experience, I have truly found my purpose in helping others to retain (or reclaim) the spirit, resilience and gratitude that I believe are the key ingredients for a life of fulfillment, balance and ease.

I am particularly interested in equipping people with techniques to deal with life’s hurts and hurdles.  I know that everyone has the resources within themselves to come back stronger and better from challenging times.  They just need a little support and guidance.

I am an expert in getting to the root cause of that which gets in the way of achieving the best outcome. Skilled at building self-worth, confidence and resilience. Teaching strategies to relieve stress/overwhelm immediately for a healthier, more productive daily life.  

Due to her passion and belief in coaching those in their formative years, having worked with all age groups, Julia has developed a life skills programme for adolescent students and on-line courses for teachers and SENCOS. In addition to creating a Stress Relief Strategies workshop, educating people with techniques and strategies to minimise anxiety and the pressures of life.
Julia thoroughly enjoys supporting and equipping others with a greater understanding of how and why we are the way we are and ways to develop ourselves."With peaks of joy and valleys of heartache, life is a roller coaster ride, the rise and fall of which defines our journey. It is both scary and exciting at the same time.”

My 1st ever Havening session was AMAZING!

"Recently I had my first session with Julia, I instantly felt at ease and very comfortable talking with Julia about what area I was seeking help and guidance.

After just one hour with Julia I felt something had shifted, the techniques and strategies she used were like nothing I had experienced before combined together in one session.

I felt lighter and even got out of my own way and achieved the first steps to getting my new business started! Something I had long been procrastinating on!

Yes, I have another session booked in which I am so looking forward to what we can shift, and unlike other people I have worked with/seen in the past, I know that I am not going to need weeks and weeks on end of sessions, but rather a few sessions as each challenge arises and I feel I need some help pushing through.

Finally, I have found someone who has so many years of experience and education who combines several techniques and strategies together that I felt instant results!

I highly recommend booking a session in with Julia, I know as I grow my team in my business I will be connecting them with Julia to keep them working at the top of their game.

So much love and respect for this woman!" Joni.

Testimonial for Julia

I had not heard of ‘Havening’ before. After doing a little bit of research on the net I felt I just wanted to experience this therapy rather than knowing a lot about it.

For me, taking care of myself and being authentic especially when triggered was something I wanted to work on. Julia was calm, a good listener, compassionate and very skilfully went through my challenges with the Havening approach. I felt safe.

It was a great session. The techniques were simple, natural, profound and effective making it easy to continue them myself. The session has given me an empowered way to take care of myself and be authentic at all times. Thank you Julia!

I definitely recommend anyone to see Julia.
