About Me

I can help you turn your obstacles into stepping stones. My background is in helping people solve their problems. 
My name is Julia Brooke and I am a:

I have:

    As a life/wellness coach, personal trainer, ex nurse, company director and a mother, partner, I strive to practise what I coach by incorporating my passions into my life. 

What are my passions? -  People,  family, well-being, fitness and health, small business, and working with individuals and corporates assisting them achieve results.

Although I loved nursing and the people contact I became frustrated with seeing the same patients coming in getting "fixed" and not heeding advice and returning soon after with the same conditions or worse.  I decided I wanted to be the ambulance at the top of the cliff and not at the bottom.  Holistic  - Emphasising the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts, looking at the body, mind and soul for wellness.

Why Me?
I guarantee you results.  I will be passionately, unequivocally supportive of you. 

My skills and personal attributes mean I am able to listen carefully, empathise closely, pick up on things quickly, suspend judgement, think creatively and give you the respect and dignity you deserve.

I am able to reframe problems so that they become possibilities.  I enjoy people of all ages and cultures and am able to intuitively connect with you.
