Welcome

Welcome to my website…..Thanks for stopping by!

I set up my business in training, facilitation and coaching 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.

I hope you enjoy having a look around the website. If you have any queries or are interested in working 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.

Julie has contributed to The Fed’s work, delivering consultation focus groups for our work with the NHS, designing and delivering learning experiences for students and teachers for our work with the Government Equalities Office.  Her contributions have been knowledgeable, engaging, and challenging when necessary.  Her style is calm and relaxed but focused and she connects and inspires participants.

Evaluations have been very positive and clients have come back for more.

Career coaching with Julie has made me realise that I have choices about my career and that I can make changes if I want to. Reflecting on my values and my goals has been a real eye-opener.  I no longer judge ‘success’ in institutional terms and instead, I think about what success means to me personally. I no longer think simply in terms of what my work wants out of me but what I want out of my work.

Julie is an attentive and sensitive listener. She provides a friendly, safe and confidential space for reflection and she shows you how to take practical steps towards achieving your goals.

Julie works with you to find out exactly what it is you want out of your career – whether you want to change career or whether you simply want to change the way you work.
