I am a Holistic Life Coach dedicated to helping people with energy limiting chronic illness take back control to live a more relaxed, balanced and fulfilling life.
When I first got sick with ME/CFS I was devastated and confused. The illness robbed me of a fulfilling active life, left me unable to contribute or take part in anything that used to make me happy. I felt I had lost my whole identity. What’s more I got no help whatsoever from my doctors…..
…… But then I learned how to manage the illness well, I learned the importance of relaxed effortlessness, I realised I was still me even if I couldn’t express myself in the same way and I learned new ways of being happy….
…. I got really good at taking care of myself and after 5 years I fully recovered! Although I have since been stricken with the condition again, I now consider myself to be living a dream life. I believe it’s possible to live a relaxed, balanced, fulfilling and fully expressed life even with chronic illness and I want to help you get there!
My Coaching is…
…empowering: It’s about supporting you to develop skills, make your own decisions, overcome obstacles and take actions to create the life you want to lead.
…empathic: It draws on my experience of overcoming chronic illness. I understand what it’s like to live with one and I also understand how small steps can lead to great things. But most of all I understand that you are a unique individual and how important it is to see the world through your eyes.
…holistic: I understand that our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being are all interconnected. Lasting change is best achieved by understanding you as a whole person, rather than focusing on specific issues in an isolated, mechanical way.
IMPORTANT: Please book appointments with at least 48 hours notice. To look after my own well-being I have a maximum session length of 45 minutes.
*I have an arrangement with Dr Myhill which works like this - if we get to a stage where we are 'stuck' and I don't have the necessary expertise, experience or knowledge to help you with a particular medical issue then, by mutual consent between you and me, I am able to consult Dr Myhill on your behalf about this issue. There will be NO EXTRA CHARGE to you for this service. NHW will bear the full cost of my consulting with Dr Myhill on your behalf. This offer is subject to change and these generous terms may only be available for a limited time frame.

I OFFER A FREE 15 MIN INTRO SESSION FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
Julie is highly professional and able to be there, as needed, despite her lived experience of chronic illness.
The Skype sessions work really well when, getting to, having and getting home from an appointment would be difficult.
I have been working with Julie for some time, tackling complex issues that were getting in the way of me being able to best manage my physical, and resultant emotional challenges.
Julie has gradually and gently allowed me to work through each stage of my journey. She has never ending patience and her compassionate understanding has been reassuring throughout. I have never felt pushed or led, just gently encouraged and validated. At the start of each session I identify celebrations of achievement and then move on to focus on what I need in that moment to move forward.
At the end of each session Julie emails notes from the session which include focused strategies to move that next step forward.
My work with Julie has been hard, but having the support of someone who understands and validates the limitations of an energy effecting illness alongside the challenges of childhood trauma, has made things so much easier.
I hope this helps you decide to see if you will benefit from some sessions with Julie, I’m confident that you will.
Skype sessions work well in bed, in PJ’S!

Julie Holiday is a very skilled practitioner. She listens well and asks great questions. Julie also has extensive knowledge about ME/CFS and other health issues and does a great job communicating this information clearly and in a way that directly connects with what you are working through. I highly recommend Julie Holiday and encourage anyone who is thinking about working with her just to do it! She is great.
Value For Money
Julie starts her coaching sessions in a lovely positive way in asking me to recall my recent celebrations which is a wonderfully empowering tool in managing an energy limiting condition.
Through Julie's coaching I have found it really helpful to reflect on how these good often small things have made me feel better about myself living with a tricky condition.
I like Julie's compassionate structured approach when discussing challenges I am experiencing. Her professionalism, knowledge and above all interest in what I am feeling means so much knowing Julie truly understands and 'gets it' as she lives with the many irratic facets of CFS.
During my NHW session in August, Julie suggested seven simple strategies for me to employ to help manage the challenges I had briefly discussed. This really helps me feel supported. I have tried many of her suggestions with good effect.
Julie has an amazing ability to capture what I am conveying (even when my mind is rather fuddled!) and by her succinct recording of notes during the session she is able to punctually send an extremely helpful summary by email to me the following day which demonstrates she has actively listened - a skill which Is of paramount importance for me when speaking to a practitioner via a medium such as Skype from the comfort of your own home.
In a nutshell I am very grateful for my contact with Julie; she is the best ME/CFS coach I could wish for' and I would certainly recommend that you book an appointment to talk to her.
Value For Money
Julie has great wisdom and there is great value in her advice and support. I recommend her to anyone with chronic health problems.
