Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
how goals become reality
Do you know the #1 thing that stops people from achieving their goals? GETTING IN ACTION! It's actually not rocket science, there is no secret sauce here - it boils down to how committed you are to daily, weekly and monthly action towards your dream. How I set goals with my clients is a little different to what most people have experienced. Instead of randomly picking some things to aim at... Read More »
the only block is YOU
The new year. It brings energy, excitement, a sense of possibility. But it can also bring doubt, confusion and frustration as you try and navigate your pathway into the new year. It can be a fresh start, or ground hog day. And it all depends on your perspective, and how self aware you are on your biggest limitations and blocks. We're all aiming for our own version of self-actualisation,... Read More »
embracing the wild
I went to an amazing event last night at The School Of Life (yes that's actually a thing!) called "Embracing The Wild". This event was designed to explore one question: What is the relationship between nature and our emotional wellbeing? Could this event have come at an any better time? I literally have just launched my first INSPIRED HIKE because of this very reason! This event spoke... Read More »
are you committed or attached?
Do you know the difference in being committed to something, or someone, but not being attached? This is a concept I work on a lot in my private coaching sessions. It's an easy one to grasp logically - but a whole lot harder to put into practice in your real life. Understanding, and more importantly, embodying this can have huge implications for how you live and experience life. From... Read More »
prioritise your passions
You know what fuels you, what you love, what puts a smile on your face, and what makes you feel whole. So why is it then that you often don't make time for these things? The simple answer - you're not prioritising them. You have a choice, every single day, as to what you focus your energy on, what gets your attention and time. Yet more often than not, it's your passions - the things that... Read More »
danger: external goals
If you follow me on social (insta/facebook) you'll know that I've been feeling ALL the feels right now. You will also know that I am, and always have been a big sharer! (sorry not sorry). This stems from my core belief that vulnerability is a strength, and that we have so much to learn and gain from each other's experience. So this is what's fuelled today's blog post  (. . and probably every... Read More »
know you are guided
I've written before about the glorification of "busy" and how it's not serving anyone (you can read my blog "You are not required to hustle" here.)  And at this time of year, I am gently reminded again of the importance of generating flow and ease in our lives. How beautiful it is to  s l o w  the pace of life right down. This period for me after the hectic pace of December and Christmas... Read More »
Getting unstuck with goal setting
My clients often come to me for coaching because they need help in moving their life forward. They feel STUCK. Stuck in a rut. You know the feeling, like you are trying to move through thick quicksand, and everything just feels  r e a l l y  hard. Unlike other professions that may dive into your childhood and past experiences, life coaching is heavily focused on your future goals and... Read More »
releasing the grip
I've always been interested in the concept of change, and how we, as humans, deal with this unstable uncertainty in our lives. Yet this resistance, this reactiveness, this fear in many of us towards change, makes our reality so much harder to deal with. We (read ME) try to cling to outcomes, experiences, people, emotions, because we are desperately trying to create some sense of control and...

buddha’s teachings #101
So as you know (if you follow me on social), I've been deep diving into a meditation and mindfulness course for the past 5 weeks. We're only half way but boy have I learnt so much already. My biggest take-away so far? That I can gain so much more peace, sweetness and joy from any moment by simply slowing down, and being truly present to the task at hand. It sounds simple I know, and...

“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.”

Teresa Marchant

“Working with Julia was the best decision I’ve made for myself. She helped broaden my horizons, get out of my own way and really focus on what is of true importance to me. With Julia’s support and guidance, I learnt how to express myself and embrace who I am with pride. Not only did I gain confidence and clarity, I felt supported to take action on my goals and within six months I began living my dream life! Julia’s positive energy, warm presence and incredible insights made her a delight to work with and I’ll be forever grateful that our paths crossed.”
