Following her career as an international athlete and UK athletics coach, Julia gravitated towards sports psychology. Guiding others came naturally to Julia, prompting her to train as a counsellor at the renowned Kensington Consultation Centre. She works as a couples and relationship therapist, and has trained as an educator for the Imago model of relationship therapy. Julia has been working with people from all walks of life, and with all levels of difficulty for over thirty years, and now works as a core therapist at the highest level.
As a former international marathon runner, Julia’s accolades include winning the Dublin City Marathon and representing England in the 1986 Commonwealth Games. Within her own journey to peak performance, she experienced many highs and lows and discovered the skills necessary to perform at top level and to manage herself effectively, whatever challenge, difficulty, success or triumph she experienced.
As well as her therapy work, Julia is also a writer, broadcaster and public speaker, working to spread her message and philosophy out in the world. She has published a book, Running to Learn.
Whatever your areas of challenge and wherever you want to explore, working with Julia or engaging with her ideas will help you to develop the skills to manage yourself effectively – skills that you will find applicable to all areas of life, enabling you to truly fulfil your potential wherever you choose to apply yourself.
