CEO, MATCH CAPITAL
"When starting a new venture, I was going through the usual “Shall I, shan’t I?” about whether or not I was biting off more than I could chew. I’m normally a very confident individual, but I was experiencing waves of doubt about whether I was capable of delivering the new business.
Coaching with Julie taught me to combat those waves of doubt and re-assert my self-belief. Now, whenever a pang of uncertainty creeps into my psyche, I use the technique of ‘getting into neutral’ which.
Learning to ‘breathe through the heart’ works, and helps to bring one’s heart rate under control. It is total common sense. Learning to control heart rate allows one to deal with stressful situations in a controlled manner."
SENIOR BUSINESS EXECUTIVE, GLOBAL FINANCIAL SERVICES
“After 25 years in the City, most of which has been spent running trading and broking businesses, meeting with Julie was a great opportunity to see how I could better address stressful tasks and situations. The HeartMath tools give you immediate and objective feedback – perfect for results-orientated City people – but the real star is Julie herself, whose infectious positivity dares you not to improve. I found that working with Julie had put me in the perfect frame of mind. Top sportspeople seem to have more time and space than their peers and the best way that I can describe the impact of working with Julie and HeartMath is that it gives you the space to perform at your best. For anyone who works under pressure and who feels that what goes on in their head can sometimes gets in the way, working with Julie is a great way forward.”
HEAD OF INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION, LEGAL & GENERAL
“The coaching programme that Julie worked on with me helped me to see the positive side of situations rather than the negative. It has meant I have become more proactive in addressing situations, and see opportunities where previously I may have seen obstacles.
It also gave me the opportunity to consider personal and professional goals, learn tools that have enabled me to feel more in control, and has equipped me to deal much more effectively with ambiguity, which has been useful in both the workplace and at home. In addition I have had increased energy levels despite a very busy work schedule.
Julie was challenging in getting me focused – creating accountability, encouraging me to use the tools ahead of situations that were important or high pressure situations – so I could see and feel the benefits.
I found the 1:1 session with Julie extremely useful – she quickly establishes rapport and trust. I felt it was critical to work with someone who is empathic and will listen but also challenge and push.”
DIRECTOR, THE SALES ACTIVATOR LTD
“As a working mum running a new business on my own, I needed to find a way of dealing with the stress whilst optimising my performance. Balancing the growth of an international business with the needs of my family had its challenges. Under Julie’s clear instruction, I achieved instant results on dealing with stress and felt an immediate positive impact. Julie introduced me to the HeartMath® system and the benefits are that it can be done anywhere, at any time and has instant results. It is a tool that can benefit you in all sorts of challenging situations and it really works. I’ve tried a lot of relaxation and alternative therapies and various other self-help practices – but this is by far the most empowering and easiest to implement in my day-to-day life. I would highly recommend Julie and the the Resilience Formula programmes.”
INTERNATIONAL HEAD OF HUMAN RESOURCES, LEGAL & GENERAL
“If you master Julie’s techniques you’ll stay in the ‘performance zone’ at work. Calm, collected, alert and ready for the challenge. For all you senior execs who ‘cope’ with pressure, why not learn how to turn it to your advantage? It works. I tried it. Well done Julie.”
FREELANCE COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT AND AMATEUR LONG-DISTANCE RUNNER
“Whilst in training for the Brighton Marathon, I needed to overcome certain health challenges that threatened to disrupt my training routine. Working closely with Julie, I felt a boost in my overall sense of heath and wellbeing and was able to regain my peak performance during training, including higher levels of endurance, confidence and optimism. Julie explored every conceivable way of achieving better health, wellbeing and performance for me. She kept me focused on an overall action plan and was an excellent coach and mentor.”
TRAINING CO-ORDINATOR UK & ROI ACADEMY, TESCO PLC
“I was just about to start a new job, move house and take on more responsibility in my personal life. I was feeling slightly overwhelmed by it all and wanted to learn some techniques that would be effective and efficient in helping me cope and, in fact, excel. I had heard of the HeartMath® technique and I wanted to give it a try in conjunction with someone I really trusted – and that person was Julie.
HeartMath® is based on scientific research, so it is so easy to understand, use and track the results. And Julie has an amazingly accurate and personable way of relating and teaching the methods. She is fun and rewarding to work with.
Since starting the programme, I have really grown in all aspects of my life and learnt a lot about myself, my own stress responses and how to deal with everyday occurrences – things that might otherwise have hindered me from operating at my best. I feel really honoured to have been able to work with Julie on this journey; she has a gift for using the HeartMath® methods and, combined with her previous experience, that makes the coaching really worthwhile.”
