IN-HOUSE TRAININGBeing in Balance
HSE research* has shown that, from the age of 25, women feel significantly more stress at work than men. The causes of stress are tenfold, but include a lack of managerial support, bullying, role uncertainty and heavy workloads. Ignoring the causes of stress and overwhelm in the workplace costs companies and families dearly.
That’s where my Being in Balance training programme can help.
The scary thing about burnout is that we don’t see it coming … until it is too late.
Women who are trying to do it all, both at work and at home have to learn to do things differently if they are to stay healthy, happy and effective.
Pushing through just doesn’t work for women!
My Being in Balance group training programme helps women take stock of how they are ‘doing’ life, and to evaluate where things can (and need to be) rebalanced.
The result for companies is a female workforce that shows up at work fully engaged, in control, and ready to face whatever comes their way on a daily basis.
How it works
Step one is to re-evaluate and find perspective. Then, with a conscious effort to create the balance and stay there is so hard when work and life constantly demands more. Learning to set boundaries, understand your own personal needs and confidently have these needs met without feeling selfish enables women to find and stay in balance.

One of the best trainings I have ever attended.
It is a delight to work with Julia. She is highly professional, has expert knowledge, is quick, flexible, and very impactful.
I decided to work with Julia based on her understanding of my situation, empathy, experience, interpersonal style, and positive attitude.
I knew I had to do something different. My work-life balance had been off kilter for far too long. I felt overwhelmed a lot of the time, feeling stressed at the office most days.
That was spilling over and taking its toll on my home life too. I felt like I had no control over my work, I’d lost confidence in my own abilities as a leader and I had no idea where I wanted my career to go.
In short, I wasn’t enjoying my job, I felt my life was passing me by and I was heading for burn out.
Then I heard about the Being in Balance programme.
I’d worked with Julia in the past on more traditional corporate training courses so I trusted her completely and was able to open up and share my feelings and the insecurities that I knew were holding me back in my career.
During the first couple of sessions I finally recognised I was functioning in a chronic state of stress, running on adrenaline. So we went back to basics and I focussed on prioritising my health and putting some fun back into my life.
Then over the remaining 12-week programme Julia gave me support as we worked through a range of tools to reassess my life values, priorities and regain control.
I’m sleeping better and have more energy to do the things I want to do, both in work and at home. People around me are noticing a real difference in me.
The Being in Balance programme enabled me to regain my inner confidence and I’m back in control. Life is good again!
