Welcome

Have you landed on this page because you:

  • want to enhance your organisation’s equality, inclusion and diversity?
  • want to develop yourself or your team professionally through coaching?
  • want someone to help you with qualitative research or evaluation?

If the answer is yes to any or all of the above, you’re in the right place!

To introduce myself, I set up my business in 2017, after over fourteen years working as an academic. I draw on my academic expertise and experience to offer training and consultancy on a variety of diversity and inclusion topics from introductory levels to more in-depth workshops or programmes. My particular specialism is women in the workplace and LGBT inclusion. I work with organisations and groups in the private, public or voluntary sector.

I gained a coaching qualification in 2017 and offer professional-development coaching within organisations as well as to individuals.

I offer a range of consultancy, too, from undertaking research, impact evaluation work to advisory roles. I am based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK but happily work more widely.

Please have a look around the website. To check my availability and find out how we might work together, please get in touch. I look forward to our conversation!

Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can 
change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

I consulted Julie because I was considering career change and didn’t know where to begin. I’m so glad to have had this coaching. Each session was tailored perfectly to my needs. Julie encouraged and enabled me to think properly through the issues I was grappling with. This was challenging – but also enjoyable! The coaching was everything I expected and more, and left me with a much greater understanding of my interests, priorities and needs. Attending these sessions was a remarkably illuminating and productive process.

I have already recommended Julie to several colleagues.

I attended Julie’s session on Gender and Coaching at the Coaching Exchange in Newcastle. I found the session really informative and helpful – it made me reflect on my own experience and on issues I come up against regularly in my work as a coach and supervisor. Julie’s approach is inclusive and thought-provoking, with a touch of humour, which helped to make the environment a safe one to discuss potentially difficult issues. She’s also clearly an expert on her subject.

I would certainly recommend anyone to attend one of her workshops or events.
