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 to find someone to help you with research or evaluation?

If the answer is yes to any or all of the above, GREAT – get in touch to check my availability.

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 around gender and LGBT equality and inclusion to 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 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, 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 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.

I enlisted Julie as a keynote speaker for a high profile regional coaching CPD workshop. Julie facilitated a hugely informative and participative workshop, succeeding to positively engage a group of over 35 HR professionals.  Whilst Julie is clearly an expert in her field, she is unassuming and warm with it.  All participants were comfortable to explore their own unconscious bias and share lots of personal insights with one another during the session, which made for a great learning experience.  The session evaluations were fantastic, reflecting the effort and approach taken by Julie. The only suggestions for enhancement is that people wanted more!

I would highly recommend Julie to anybody who is looking to develop individual and organisational understanding of gender and LGBT equality, she really is the go-to expert in this field and a genuinely lovely person to deal with.
