About

My name is Julie Kennedy, I am British, brought up in France and and have lived in close to 15 countries in Africa and Europe.

I speak English, French, Dutch, Spanish and German. I hold a BA in German/Spanish and Business Studies and have worked in many fields ( Linked-in profile )

I graduated with my Life Coach Practitioner Degree and NLP Practitioner with Distinctions and was accredited in 2009. I have a wealth of experience in motivational coaching and coaching for expatriates, 20 years own experience as expat partner which actually brought me to Coaching as reflected in my contribution to the published book “A Coach’s Story”.

My life as expat and need to constantly re-define myself as the paths around me changed is actually what led me to coaching. I coach in English, French, German and Dutch.
If you are serious about achieving your personal best in any area of your life, I am passionate about making it happen.

I believe we all have a choice. We might not always choose or appreciate what we come across in life but we CAN always choose how to respond. We can call it “bad karma”and resign ourselves or on the other hand find something positive, a learning point in every situation, then we have gained something, and are richer for it. The richer we are, the more grateful we become and the more we give in return…and that is when good things start to happen.

My mission: to make a difference, a positive difference, in the lives around me.

You can expect empathy and understanding, a genuine curiosity and belief in your ability to live the life you truly want, a gentle but relentless nudge to “walk the talk” or investigate what is holding you back, a strong dosage of motivation and a share sprinkling of humour.

Testimonials

Stefan, Expat in Berlin

Julie doesn’t tell you what to do, she asks what YOU will do about your issue! A great coach can make herself unneeded and that is what Julie does. She guides you to formulate your issues, and helps you create a plan to tackle them. She has a wealth of experience from business and international environments that help her understand your context. And she has excellent knowledge of the coaching literature to select follow-up material suited for your situation (Covey, NLP). Getting coached by Julie is a very motivating experience that makes you think in new ways to get you closer to your authentic self.

Frank, expat, the Hague

I have always been somewhat skeptical about the impact, coaching could have on improving my life and myself. I did not feel, that coaching could bring life-changing added value, which I should actually be able to get done on my own.


But during the most profound crisis of my life I had a gut feeling, that if any, I would give it a shot with Julie to coach me back into the light and towards the bright side of life, even though I had only met her once briefly in the past.


It turned out to be one of the most crucial life-improving decisions of my life. Thank you so much Julie. You have an incredible natural sense to find well hidden root causes to very personal problems, address them bluntly and wisely and eliminate them in a healthy and sustainable way.


Life is excellent again. Thanks to your passion and talent for coaching.

Julie Jones Owner, Essence Therapeutics

I was lucky enough to meet Julie through the international expat community here in The Hague. As a small business owner, I had come to a crossroads and felt stuck with developing my business further. I enlisted her help and in only a few coaching sessions, she helped me focus on what I really wanted, gave me clarity and most importantly helped me to move beyond my own limitations . I had never used a business coach before but I am so glad I went with my 'gut' instinct and hired Julie. I will definately call her again when I need her wisdom and professional insight.
