Julia is a body coach with expertise supporting people to build healthy relationships with their body as a means for awakening to greater self-love and confidence.
Julia has a degree in psychology and decades of experience helping others as a facilitator in transformational development, a qualified trainer in breath work, rebirthing, communication and yoga, as a professionally trained actress and as a certified coach. She has practiced in the US and UK and coached, facilitated and trained in the private, public and charity sectors, working with both the elderly, the young and everyone in between.
Years of working with the body, and her own journey of overcoming severe body-image challenges, revealed to her the complex relationships people have with self-image and how this can lead to difficulty with eating, exercise and self-care. Moreover, Julia noticed the trend toward more instances of self-harm in the young and greater anxiety among adults in the body-perfect, always sharing, always comparing world.
Her work now is dedicated to creating new paradigms of self-awareness for anyone who wants to feel more positive about their body and themselves, and to providing practical tools for creating healthier relationships with food, exercise and self.
Julia feels especially passionate about supporting girls and boys entering teenage years and young adulthood, as these years provide a great opportunity to instil the all important paradigms of self-acceptance, love and confidence that will serve a lifetime.
We are delighted to have Julia supporting our community to live a life of freedom, feeling great about who we are.
“I have struggled and failed. I have struggled and overcome. I have learnt to give up my struggle – to lay down my sword and swap it for dancing shoes.” – Julia
