My biggest compliment about the coaching was Julia, I was unsure at first how to act, what to say, what was or was not important, but her style and personality put me at ease and made it easier for me to really look at myself and to come up with my own suggestions. Julia was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, thought provoking and an excellent coach, it was an absolute pleasure to meet her and work with her. I was incredibly impressed, and I hope to meet her again in the future. On a scale of 1-10? That is a very easy question totally TEN OUT OF TEN, I can honestly say I am really sorry it has finished. Kristian Taylor, Beaumont Fragrance Training Manager, Kenneth Green Associates

I enjoyed working with Julia. She had ideas at the start of each session but always went with the flow of the sessions if needs be. I like the way she introduced some useful models, but never felt they were being shoe-horned in. I can use them in my own tool box as a manager. Sharing her own experiences and weaknesses was helpful and appropriate. Ken Livingstone, Director of Movement Sustainability, YMCA England

I am delighted to provide a testimonial for Julia. I have known Julia professionally for more than 20 years and believe her to be one of the most experienced and expert training providers with whom I have worked. During 2002 to 2010 Julia co-facilitated on a range of training courses for which I was Programme Director, at the National School of Government. (Including design and delivery of the Advanced Coaching & Mentoring programme for Cambridge University’s Institute of Education). These courses involved both middle managers and senior leaders, including members of the senior civil service. The feedback reports from all of these events demonstrated her undoubted expertise as both a trainer and a facilitator. Julia is able to draw on a wide range of training approaches and methodologies, which are always tailored to the needs of her audience. She has a keen ability to explore complex topic areas in ways that are meaningful for her audiences. Julia is an expert coach with a keen ability to provide insightful feedback. In my experience her feedback has enabled participants to transfer their learning into improved performance in the workplace. Dr Kay Evans Education Adviser, Judicial College

Julia is a wonderful coaching supervisor. She has been a valuable resource on my coaching journey. Julia is incredibly generous in sharing her ideas, thoughts and resources. She also provides a wise sounding board and has provided just the right balance of challenge and support. I would highly recommend Julia as a coaching supervisor for both experienced and inexperienced coaches. Liz Scott, NewScott Coaching, Coach and Facilitator

Julia has been my supervisor for about 3 years now and I've worked with her in both 1-1 and group supervision. If you think you are an experienced coach and don't need supervision, think again. No matter how well I think I know myself, or how great my reflection has been about working with clients and their systems, Julia always brings something to my work that I simply wouldn't have unearthed by myself. I can honestly say she has transformed my coaching relationships and has stretched me, challenged me and ultimately supported me to be a more effective coach. She has also helped me believe in myself and my abilities. I've also met some lovely coaches in the area through her group work. I will always want to know Julia. Thank you for your continued patience, stretch and support. Jayne Harrison, Executive Coach, Facilitator & Career Coach Peak Consulting

Julia, in my opinion, is a fantastic coaching supervisor. I completed my coaching supervision training earlier this year and have been working with Julia on a very regular basis to improve my capability as a supervisor of coaches. Julia's insight, challenge, support and experience have been used to continually improve my practice as a supervisor and a coach. She always knows the questions to ask and helps me to understand the connections between what appear to be very different issues. Would highly recommend her. Chris Birbeck, Coach & Supervisor Chris Birbeck Consulting
