act as if
I had an interesting conversation with a friend last night. He wanted to change jobs, change careers infact, but felt he was under qualified for some of the positions that were available. It brought to mind for me the misleading notion of 'readiness' - when are we ever really ready? If we wait for that perfect moment, that elusive some-day concept when all our ducks are lined up in a row,... Read More »
private sea
You all know by now my self-professed obsession with water, more specifically - salt water. . . So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I landed myself in a floatation tank on the weekend! #jackpot Yes that's right - a tank you float in. Just myself, naked, floating in a private pod surrounded by darkness. It was pure Heaven. Every time I swim at the beach I end my session with... Read More »
welcome fear
Fear can be debilitating . . . if you let it be. It's something that's been showing up a lot for me recently. It's that little voice on my shoulder, and grip on my heart that stops me in my tracks when I get too much in my head. Fear has me second guess myself. Fear has me question the future. Fear denies me of the trust I have in the universe. And more importantly, the trust I have in... Read More »
2014 flashback
So it's that time of year when we start setting intentions for the new year. Goal setting, manifesting, desire mapping, vision-boarding, bucket-listing, praying - all running hot right now through people's minds, bodies, journals and cork boards. We rush towards 2015, without even pausing to say a well deserved thank you, and goodbye to the year that's held us for the past 12 months. What a... Read More »
the G-word
Do you set goals? Yes, I said the G-word. Now I know for some that this is a bad word, but stay with me here as I once thought it was too. I used to think 'goal setting' was reserved for business executives, or elite athletes - those type A personalities that charged through life pushing for bigger and better. Now there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, I just couldn't relate to it,... Read More »
acts of kindness
It is DECEMBER! Can you believe it? . . . I swear only yesterday we were in June. So with the last month of the year comes the holiday season and Christmas. It is the season of giving, of joy, of celebration - but often the holidays turn into a mad rush - shopping lists, queues, traffic, stress and tight deadlines. Tensions are high. Time is limited. We scramble to get everything done as... Read More »
the simple life
I re-wrote my goals last week. I edited, scratched out, and stripped them right back to the core. God, it felt so liberating! Instead of setting multiple goals in each area of my life, I just stuck to ONE. One personal, one health, one career. The most important goal to me. The ONE goal that if I DID NOT have, all the other's would feel empty and meaningless. I got really clear that... Read More »
balance, an art form
Balance. Is it ever really attainable? Lately I have been very focused on my work. Mainly because it's something that I LOVE doing!  I am so clear on my purpose for the first time in my life, so clear on my vision, that I've been trying to pull it towards me as fast as I can. I'm learning that patience is most definitely a virtue. What I got clear on this week, is that I need to let go a... Read More »
conflict
What happens to you when conflict arises? Do you have your set way of being, does your body respond and go into auto-pilot? Usually we go one of two ways, either towards, or away from conflict. I am definitely the former. This doesn't mean I am searching for conflict, or 'stirring the pot' - but I'm the type of person that seeks peace with people. Ironic that I veer towards conflict no? If... Read More »
daily dose of nature
This year has been a challenging one for me on a personal level. 2014 has been pushing my buttons, testing my boundaries, it's prompted me to claim my position, define my values, and rule out my tolerations. It's been challenging, painful, eye-opening and exhausting. And I wouldn't have it any other way. It's provided me with a powerful source of awareness, clarity and growth. Nothing great...

“When considering a coach for our Lululemon ambassador Retreat, Julia was all we thought of.  Julia’s session was absolutely integral to the transformational event we created. She brought the group together, and the sharing that Julia facilitated carried through the entire Retreat. Julia’s power is in her ability to enable impactful dialogue between the conscious self and the heart, and it was such a privilege to have her develop and elevate this amazing group of people towards being even more powerful, goal-focused rockstars.”

“I have taught coaching as an academic University teacher – Julia goes beyond anything in my textbook. It is the best money I ever spent. Her coaching is amazing, she is a wonderful active listener. There have been times when I have challenged Julia on how to deal with unexpected non-dreamed of situations that come up. This is where she excels. She knows how to deal with my future dreams and my current reality. I cannot recommend Julia enough. I’ll also say – I did the work. I never expected Julia to be a magic wand. I expected her to be a coach. She has been coach extraordinaire.”
