Coaching

“A life coach does for your mind, what a personal trainer does for your body”.

 

Life coaching helps you better understand what you really want, and follow the attainment of those goals via a plan that more closely aligns with your core values, strengthening areas where you may be weak and building upon current strengths. Studies show that individuals who have chosen life coaching find greater success, fulfilment and happiness. Rather than dreaming about what never was, individuals can get ‘unstuck’ with the help of a life coach and work constructively towards achieving real life goals. The life coach asks questions to help you focus on what is important, clearing away unnecessary clutter and unleashing your potential for maximum personal power in many areas including family, finances, relationships, spirituality, health and career.”

 

 

It can be:
– Dealing with feeling overwhelmed
– Relationship challenges
– Achieving personal balance
– Time management
– Career development
– Family enhancement
– Weight / exercise control
– Work /life balance
– Coping with change, cultural differences, feelings of alienation or low self-worth
– Preparing or returning from a foreign posting or any other issue you want a different result in.
– Existential re-positioning (otherwise known as mid-life)

 

How?
– By helping you define what you want, why you want it and how to get it.
– By supporting you as you step outside your comfort zone to make crucial changes in your life
– By working with you on a results-oriented action plan and holding you accountable to it.
– By encouraging you and challenging you to believe in yourself and take significant action
– By providing you with the tools to move yourself forward

 

As seen above I coach on many aspects of self-development with main expertise on three themes:
MOTIVATION: based on your Purpose and Passion connecting to your values and mission
EXPAT COACHING: finding your own way when the paths around you keep changing
QUESTIONING THE WHOLE: taking stock of where you are and what needs to change to live an authentic life (for some it can be what was previously known as the mid-life crisis)

 

Is coaching right for you? You won’t know until we have had a chance to discuss your needs. Contact me for a free consultation. There is no obligation beyond the one you have to yourself.
A life coach does for your mind, what a personal trainer does for your body.

 

Coaching is NOT therapy or counseling and does NOT focus on the past. It deals with the present reality and future goals. Feel free to download my eBook: “A definition of coaching” for a more thorough definition.

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.
