Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Are you going through a tough time or finding it hard to cope?
CBT could really help you start living your best life TODAY
Life can be a challenge and admitting you need help is the first part of making things better.
It may not feel like it at the moment but you really don't have to continue feeling how you do right now.
Getting support is one of the best gifts you can give yourself, especially when things feel like they are getting on top of you. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy that helps you manage your problems by changing your way of thinking and behaviour.
You can identify, understand, and shift thinking and behaviour patterns that are not serving you. You can look to the future with hope and joy. It's time to take back control and be the driving force of your life going forward. I will be there to hold your hand as you learn how to discover your strengths, overcome challenges and get clear about what it is you actually want.
This all starts with a simple conversation, just reach out for an chat.

Common questions I get around Cognitive Behavioural Therapy...
Click on your FAQ
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help lots of people in a variety of situations. Whether it works for you or not depends on a variety of factors so we won't know until we've had chance to meet and explore your situation carefully.
This is why I offer a free connection call. The purpose of this meeting is to explore whether CBT will help you and if I am the best person to facilitate it with you.
Similar to coaching, CBT requires active participation in solving your problems. It isn't just about talking through your problems. It's about discussing them, understanding them more fully, and developing strategies that you will implement to improve your situation and how you feel.
Some forms of counselling concern themselves purely with the past and how they affect your present day feelings. CBT takes the next step by helping you focus on your present situation and what you can do to change it for the better.
While some forms of counselling focus largely on coming to terms with the past, CBT helps you understand how your thoughts, feelings and behavours are connected, and how by changing any one of these things you can affect the others.
In short, CBT is about giving you a toolkit to cope with the ups and downs of life.
Sessions are normally weekly initially and then dialled back to once every two weeks for as long as you need them.
I don't normally see people for single or adhoc sessions as this rarely builds lasting change.
Here are some of the results my past clients have enjoyed...
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.
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
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.
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
