It was during her career in modeling that Julie began her personal 15 year battle with Bulimia.
Throughout this podcast you can see her desire to reframe Bulimia not as an addiction but as an unhealthy relationship with not just food but ultimately yourself.
Julie’s belief is that the work to releasing this issue is all about changing beliefs and behaviors. Beliefs and
behaviors now highly encouraged globally, causing an increasing number of both men and women of all ages, to fall victim to disordered eating and eating disorders.
Her very successful work with clients shows that she really is on to something. Join us and listen and learn as Julie shows you the secrets and patterns she has used in her own shift and that of her clients.
Although it has been over 20 years since, for almost 17 years Julie lived with Bulimia in varying degrees of intimacy. As a successful model, working in London, Paris, Hamburg and Tokyo, it seemed as if she was living the sort of life many people dream of.
However, in reality her life was less glamorous. Bulimia threatened her health, eroded her relationships, cut her off from family and friends and destroying her self-esteem and confidence.
By chance, one day in the gym when sharing a piece of the equipment with a young woman, Celie, she asked how she kept so slim. She told her that she ate 6 times a day – 3 smallish meals with snacks in between! In copying that format, Julie began to feel a whole lot better, physically, mentally and emotionally.
She studied and trained in life coaching, NLP, and intuitive coaching and read avidly to feed her insatiable thirst for knowledge which led to the joy of discovering the Self, what was important and falling in love with her life and herself (most of the time anyway!)
During this period it became very clear that her true passion lay in supporting others get to a place where bulimia slipped away rather than it be something they have to fight against. Thus her optimistic approach in working with groups or individuals.
