About me


As your Coach I am here to unlock your potential to maximise your performance, helping you to learn, rather than teaching or telling you how.


As your Counsellor I aim here to facilitate change in your attitudes and behaviour, using solution focused, strengths based and evidence informed approaches.


As your consultant I will design and deliver a range of consulting services and or workshops for you based on your organisation / program / work team needs.

As an experienced Coach, Manager and Leader, I have developed my career over the last 35 years across the Community Services, Health and VET /Higher Education sectors. For the last 22 years I have worked in a variety of Management/Leadership roles dedicated to building organisational capability and individual staff capacity to achieve both quality community based, health and learning outcomes. I am passionate about helping people to change their lives through a range of techniques including coaching, to enhance their wellbeing. 

I am a strategic thinker and innovator, I have worked extensively in developing the knowledge and skills of Community Services, Health and Education staff in contemporary, holistic approaches to service delivery.  As a trained Social Worker and Family Therapist, I have well developed skills in Life Coaching, Counselling and Trauma Informed approaches to therapy. My work practices are grounded in strengths based, solution focused approaches well suited to current client centered community/health based service delivery and learner-centered education.

What is coaching.

Coaching is about learning new ways of thinking and behaving to bring about change and transformation. It offers a flexible, responsive, individual and ‘just in time’ approach to developing resilience, strengthening skills and improving performance and productivity. “Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.” - International Coaching Federation-ICF

Julie has been my coach and mentor for a few months now. During this time she has made me realise my true potential and focus on areas I need to develop as a leader in Health Services. She has provided me with the appropriate knowledge and tools to work through the most difficult aspects of being a new leader. Julie has methodical ways of applying theory to day-to-day work complexities and as a result, I am more confident and able to attend complex matters arising in my role. Thank you.


Since employing Julie as my business coach I have felt more confident in my decision making process. Through discussion I have considered different avenues of choice with Julie and feel that she has assisted me to view these paths with completely open eyes. I feel empowered and this has given me the motivation to execute these choices confidently. Julie has also given me some excellent tools to use to keep my own motivation up going forward and that is the long term goal for me.

Julie was very personable, realistic and was able to inspire me towards my best self in a very common sense and practical way. For me, her coaching in combatting my negative self talk, helped me to emerge with a new freedom and positive outlook that assists my family and I. The tools Julie provided will enable me to continue to build on our work together! I can wholly recommend C u Change Coaching.
