Hi. I'm Julie
I want you to know that you're amazing and I really want the best for you. Let's get to know one another...
I'm just the girl next door
My name is Julie Maloney and I’m a qualified coach based in the UK. I’m happily married with two sons and have been running a successful coaching practice since 2014. I like to think that my life is pretty together at the moment, but it certainly never used to be that way...
From the age of 14 I suffered from chronic abdominal pain on a daily basis. Doctors at that time didn't really know what was going on. It was often put down to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and stress. Many people thought I was exaggerating and didn't understand. It affected my schooling, social life, relationships and ultimately, cost me my intended career which was nursing.
I mention this not to seek sympathy, but simply to provide context. Decades of examinations, operations and research led to a diagnosis of endometriosis. The pain could be almost paralysing and it led to me experiencing anxiety and depression.
Two decisions that changed my life
Around 2000 I made two important decisions. I'd been working from home and although the hours were flexible, the job was demanding. I needed more control over when and how I worked. So I started a business. I also decided to seek pain management therapy and counselling.
The long and the short of it is that I discovered by getting the right type of support, taking positive action and learning how to manage my mental and emotional state, I could take charge of my life like never before.
I learned coping mechanisms to deal with my anxiety and depression. I had a hysterectomy that helped with the pain. My relationships improved. I was happier... and most importantly, I felt like I was no longer living day to day. I could be positive about the future and in control of the direction it would take.
Waist deep in self-development books... and courses... lots of courses!
What I learned in those first years as an entrepreneur was the beginning of my dive into the world of self-development, neuroscience, coaching and cognitive behaviour therapy.
And it was exciting... The more I learned the more possibilities I saw, for myself and for others facing challenge in their lives too.
So in 2014 I qualified as a Life Coach. I then went on to qualify as a counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Practitioner. The work I do now is transforming the lives of people I work with in a profound way. You can read more about that here.
So that's my story. How a "girl next door" lost out on the career she first wanted because of health issues and depression, only to end up doing something she loves more than anything and is living her best life.
So let's talk about how I can help you...
Why can you trust me?
Plus, I care deeply about my clients and helping them get results.
As a qualified Life Coach, Counselling Practitioner and CBT Practitioner this allows me to be flexible and focus on the whole of an individual. By integrating different approaches, I can adapt to meet individual needs and concerns.
What impact do I create?
Relatable, Helpful, Motivating and Accommodating
I met Julie thanks to social media! Julie is friendly, relatable, helpful, motivating, and accommodating. She was able to teach me how to use Skype for our training because we are located half way around the world from each other!
She helped me to analyze my past successes, and current and future goals. We also started to create an action plan for a tough transition that I was experiencing.I would highly recommend Julie for any type of life and business coaching that you might be interested in.
Not a cookie-cutter program
Working with Julie was such a pleasure. I had been working on my social media presence for a little while and started with focusing on Twitter and using apps and programs and it made a huge difference. I signed up for many different courses and groups. They helped a lot especially Boom Social group. But I finally realized I needed one on one attention. I also wanted to up my Instagram presence as I really loved what I was seeing other people doing on that platform. I was semi knowledgeable about Instagram but I really used it to show pictures of my family and share funny memes. I started posting business stuff on my personal page and it was a little frustrating to see who liked it for my personal stuff of my business. I needed to do something different.
Coaching with Julie was so easy and she gives you clear actionable steps that you can implement immediately and checks your progress. She is very attentive to your needs at that moment whatever they may be. I love the personal attention. I didn’t feel like she put me through a cookie-cutter program she gives to everyone.
If you are thinking of working with Julie I say do it and just talk to her and see if she is the right fit and I bet you will like her as much as I did. It was a pleasure collaborating with you and hope we can continue our connection in the future.
Confidence to step outside your comfort zone
I was a little unsure as to what to expect with my coaching sessions, Julie made me feel at ease with her lovely kind, caring character and really made me think about what I wanted to achieve in my business and life.
I left each session with action steps that I could implement, taking things step by step and getting a clearer picture of what I could do, gave me more focus and confidence to step out of my comfort zone.
Since the sessions, I feel more able to be productive and reach my goals. I recommend all of you to set some coaching sessions with Julie, she is a true blessing.
Thank you, Julie.. xxx
Calm, informative and supportive style
I met Julie online and love being part of her supportive community. I have benefited tremendously from her love, support and great coaching. Thank you for helping me take my business to the next level Julie.
I highly recommend Julie as a coach. Her calm, informative and supportive style as well as her willingness to go the extra mile is just awesome.
Truly one in a million
Life Coach Julie: There is so much I could say about her. Julie really cares about her clients and their success. This shows in so many ways. Julie understands that personal life and business impact each other and she effectively helps you manage both.
Unlike most coaches, Julie is both financially and personally accessible. She gives you access to HER, not just email, between sessions. This has an undeniable impact on your forward motion. It allows you to keep being productive and make significant progress between sessions.
Julie’s actions match her words! She is truly one in a million.
She put me at ease immediately
Julie is an effective coach who is very easy to talk to. Her professionalism and desire to help her clients shine through in each session and in supplementary email/messaging conversations. She put me at ease immediately. She helped me prioritize where I wanted to spend time on social media marketing and what tasks I wanted to focus on to get traffic to my website. We worked on stream-lining my niche and my message to clients within that niche. She packed in so much valuable information into our sessions, but at the same time made certain that I understood the points she made. I now feel more confident in my message and how I will get that message across to my audience. I highly recommend Julie as a life and business coach.
I Couldn't Be More Grateful
I first became acquainted with Julie on LinkedIn and then via her Facebook group which is a great place to receive advice, great tips and motivation from Julie and many other hard-working ladies in business.
Julie has also been coaching me one-on-one and it’s been so great to have her encouragement, guidance and expertise. She’s helped me to clarify what it is I’m aiming for and helps me form a plan of action of how to get there. She always provides valuable insights and useful strategies that are applicable and really help me move forward.
She holds me accountable for my actions and has helped to change the thought processes and techniques I use to manage my business for the better. She ensures that I’m spending my time wisely and I now feel like I have much greater control over the direction of my business and with her help I’m implementing tools and strategies that will maximise my chances of success. Above all, she’s really helped to boost my confidence and I couldn’t be more grateful for her support.
Exactly Where I Want and Need to Be
I am a 35-year-old mother of three who was struggling to juggle work and home. I wasn't finding any real satisfaction in any area of my life leading to feelings of guilt and a general sense of being overwhelmed.
Through the coaching sessions, Julie helped me focus on what I really wanted, what was really important. The goal focussed nature of the sessions gave me something to strive for and reflect on. Consequently, I now feel that I am exactly where I want and need to be. I am much more able to deal with the stresses and strains of everyday life without feeling burnt out.
Julie is incredibly easy to talk to and just seems to understand without judging. She is incredibly professional but still warm and engaging and I really look forward to our sessions, (which I still find I need from time to time).
I have had experience of counseling in the past but for me, the focus on the future which Julie's coaching provides was exactly what I needed. The fact that she could be flexible with the appointment times was hugely helpful and I would very highly recommend her to anyone
Something Truly Different
I recently worked with Julie whilst she was coaching me around presentation skills. After initially being skeptical of life coaching, and in particular the return on investment, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of working with Julie.
Julie herself was extremely professional and allowed me to see things in a different way. At the end of each session Julie set clear objectives, and although these challenged me, none of the tasks left me feeling outside of my comfort zone.
The techniques Julie used allowed me complete visibility of my development and after working with Julie I can honestly say my confidence has improved, and not just in the area of presentations, but has helped me apply the same techniques throughout all of my professional interactions. I have no hesitation in recommending that anybody considering life coaching speak to Julie, as she truly offers something different.
