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.

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.

Years spent in a stressful and panic-ridden workplace had made me unhappy and insecure, with the negative effects going way beyond my working life.  I left that job but had no focus, direction or confidence.  Coaching with Julie enabled me to gain perspective, and to reappraise my skills and strengths away from that working environment.  I am now working more effectively, and much more happily.
