Besides providing counselling in a wide range of settings, Julie has vast experience in applying her skills to assist staff at all levels in the workplace to improve their management skills, manage conflict more effectively, enhance performance and manage change. Trained as a Conflict Management Coach in 2005, Julie was invited to be the first Australian accredited as a trainer in the CINERGY model and has since facilitated this training for many hundreds of people throughout Australia as well as coaching many hundreds more.

Julie is always seeking to develop new skills and has recently trained to work with lawyers in providing Collaborative Law services.
Julie sailed into Townsville nine years ago and so enjoyed the Townsville lifestyle that she and her partner sold their yacht and became landlubbers. However she continues to satisfy her love of travel through her ongoing facilitation of training programs around the country and active and adventurous holidays overseas.
