5 steps to self compassion
We all hear the terms self love, self kindness and self compassion talked about. It's easy to understand these concepts from an intellectual level, but like many things - another thing all together to actually put into practice. Being kind, patient and loving towards yourself is possibly the hardest thing you will ever practice. And it is that - a practice. It is ongoing work that requires... Read More »
soul ties
We've all got those people in our lives, be in an ex parter, an old friend, or a distant relative - that hold a special place in our heart. You know the ones; distance, time or history don't seem to matter. Nothing can shatter your connection. The bond you share is still strong. You think of them often, you see them in your minds eye, you reminisce about times you shared together. They... Read More »
mindful dating
So I've recently entered back into the dating scene after a very loooooong hiatus. And this time it feels very different. I don't know if it's down to my age, past experience and feeling a lot wiser than I once was, or whether it's the work I've done within, the mindfulness and self love practice I've been cultivating, or wether it's the combination of all of these things - but this time...

how much do you love yourself?
Do you love yourself? Like whole-heartedly, unconditionally LOVE yourself? Where would you place yourself on a scale of 1 - 10? (1 = self loathing, and 10 = complete self love and acceptance.) Most women I speak to would only place themselves between 1 - 5. And that my friends, is no where near good enough. Now when I say love yourself, it’s not in a romantic, lovey-dovey kissing the...

is happiness selfish?
I have to be real with you, the word happiness hasn't always sat well with me. (You might recall my stance from previous post such as: The Pursuit Of Happiness) But my own personal definition of happiness* is slowly changing. It's moving away from the superficial and frivolous, and merging towards deep fulfilment, peace and joy. (* Notice the power of language, and the meaning that we... Read More »
you have all the spirituality you need
I wanted to share a post with you today that I came across a while ago, and loved instantly. It came to my mind when one of my beautiful clients commented to me "I hope to one day be as in-tune spiritually as you are". And it stopped me in my tracks, because I don't even regard myself as an overley spiritual person. I love it, sure, and I am learning more all the time. Yet I look up to so... Read More »
my teacher, grief
Writing comes so naturally to me, it’s my thing. It's my way of expressing myself, and understanding my thoughts and feelings. It makes me feel so connected. Yet for the past few months I’ve barely put pen to paper . . . (or more, finger to keyboard). To say that this year has been challenging is an understatement. In fact, the past 2 years have been rather tough. You see, a couple of... Read More »

inner child?
I have been feeling disconnected of late, like I have lost myself a little bit. So it was time to do something for me, to re-fill my cup and nurture myself. I took myself to see my spiritual healer, the equivalent to a big warm soul hug. She said a lot of me feeling off-centre was to do with accepting and embracing my 'inner-child'.  That I had made choices that didn't support her. That I... Read More »
reclaim your power
Time to get real (isn't it always?!). I've been in a bit of hole the past couple of weeks, in fact it's been a BIG hole. A crater even. After a couple of personal events including a break up, family illness and the end of a friendship - I let myself slide into a state of deep sadness. I flat lined, I felt like the life had been sucked right out of me. I had nothing left. I started to... Read More »

“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

“Julia is actually the most amazing human being. She is so easy to talk to and has a knack for asking the right questions. Julia has a great way of helping you articulate what’s going on for you and makes it easy to uncover any blocks you have. She motivates you to action and inspires you to go BIG!”
