I wonder sometimes if we hadn’t met that day where I would be now. Would I have achieved those 2 awards? Would I have been filmed twice and had my message spread globally? Would I have been published company wide and called a local celebrity? Would I have the influence in my work as a respected leader as I do now? Would top leaders have adopted a language closer to mine when speaking of safety, and to make them more personable to the average staff? All these things were achievable. I just couldn’t see them. Julie helped me see.
She is an awesome coach. Her inner wisdom, serenity and patience are what makes working with her special. While working with Julie, I realized that there were aspects of myself holding my voice and inner leader back. Her guidance helped me move towards being more authentic and present in my life and work. My mind, body and spirit are more connected now than ever. I would recommend Julie Veitch to anyone looking for a deeper change in their professional or personal journey.
My opening line when I first started coaching with Julie was “I need to know what to be when I grow up and I need help!” I can’t believe how much was accomplished in our first meeting! I was over 50 and ready to sink my teeth into a new career, and didn’t know where to focus my energies and talents. I went in feeling overwhelmed and left filled with the hope of a new beginning and clear direction. We uncovered what gets me excited in a way that I hadn’t been able to do on my own. She provided me with tangible next steps and I moved into action.
As a result of coaching with Julie I have now started my own business, and she has supported me in getting UN-stuck and moving forward. She helped me bring awareness and freedom to negative things I was holding on to, and guided me to understand how my own body speaks to me. This led me to awaken to the truth of who I am, and I came to recognize that I DO matter! I am unique and I have lots to offer!
Working with Julie is a complete joy! Her calm demeanor puts me at ease instantly. Her vast experience and insights are delivered with encouragement and enthusiasm, and she has led my personal growth and self-discovery in a safe and nurturing way. I am forever grateful for my time with her!
Coaching with Julie is nothing short of amazing and it has been instrumental to enhancing my life and career path. She has helped me get clear about the overall direction of my life and business, and has empowered me to become much more confident in my next steps. As a result of coaching with Julie, I’m taking some bold steps, learning to deal with tensions more easily, trusting my inner wisdom, relaxing, and breathing more easily. Julie’s way of addressing pent up blockages and emotions is nothing short of miraculous! She has taught me to return to clarity about my vision quickly and guided me to move through my emotions by encouraging me to tap into my own body and heart intelligence. I’ve made important changes in my life these past years, and deeply appreciate her being by my side every step of the way. I know that I want and need Julie by my side as a coach, guiding me with her wisdom, intuition, experience and kindness, and I love working with her.
Thank you so MUCH, Julie!
I found Julie through a trusted referral. After interviewing a number of coaches, Julie stood out not only for her gentle and non-judgmental way, but also as a person with whom I instantly connected. I was in the midst of making some fundamental life and career changes. I had recently moved to the US, from Switzerland where I’d held corporate positions, to be with my wife and follow one of my dreams of becoming a Certified Professional Career Coach.
I knew in my heart that Julie was exactly what I needed to support my professional aspirations and help me forge my path to becoming a successful Career Coach.
During the time I worked with Julie, I was able to unlock some important questions about what was important to me. Through our sessions I found the insight and strength to effectively make the necessary changes, and be more fulfilled than ever before.
Julie is a coach’s coach, and has been, quite simply, transformational for me on a deep level. She has evoked a profound shift in me as I worked through some extremely difficult things, and as I fought hard to honor the values and goals I had set out for myself.
My journey continues and I am now on track with my new career goal and work as a Career Development Coach in Higher Education. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone seeking to make profound changes in their professional and personal life.
Coaching with Julie truly made a lasting impact on me. She worked with me to uncover my deeper purpose and core values to create a forward vision and momentum for change in both my personal and professional life. The timing for our work was very fortunate and allowed for transformative change and post traumatic growth.
Our work together helped me better prioritize and create balance at work and home, as well as becoming more present in daily circumstances. I learned some practical techniques for building my “inner calm” muscle, which has translated to providing space for creativity and innovation. As a result of working with Julie I developed deeper, more meaningful relationships with myself and others. I am staying on a course and can now better trust myself to take forward steps. Thank you Julie for your support and wonderful coaching!

Every coach needs a coach, my profound thanks to coach Julie Veitch – over the course of 4 months she’s held space for my aspirations and my fears and let me get clear on how to reconcile both. I’m heading in a great new direction in a matter of days and having the professional support from Julie to help clear the path has made this a life changing journey.
I came to work with Julie clutching at some fairly limiting beliefs about how my work (and life) had to be. My goal, in working with Julie was simply to get at these beliefs and see how I might loosen my grip slightly to allow for new possibilities. What occurred for me, during our time together was truly transformative.
Not only did I shift from my challenging belief that work and finding ‘the next project’ had to be hard (I’d carried a belief that I had to “choose my hard” because most things were going to be hard), but I slowly released my grip on that completely limiting viewpoint and started to see that living, working, loving, and parenting with a sense of EASE was a great place to start making changes that I, and everyone in my circle, could live with.
With Julie, I started to apply the notion of EASE to everything: sourcing work, promoting myself, getting paid. Everything. Right down to how I looked at doing dishes!
Is my life forever at EASE because of this work? No. I don’t think Julie sees herself as a silver bullet and, I believe, life’s a journey toward what we want most. But, are my decisions and goals informed by the quest for EASE? You bet.
I am grateful for Julie’s calming energy and devotion to helping us hear the messages each of us holds in our bodies and minds. I know she will help you in your own quest for EASE – however you define it.

Julie’s non-judgmental, supportive and consistently calm demeanour all work together to make her the amazing coach that she is. I’ve been able to move into a more meaningful career as a result of working with her. She has provided me with some excellent tools to use to counter the fear surrounding change as well as when I become anxious or upset. While creating a safe environment she has an ability to ask poignant questions that get a me to open up to things I would never have thought of. Julie has a natural way of keeping each session on track so that you can always walk away with something learned or gained.
Julie is not only an amazing coach but person as well. I have learned so much from her both in our sessions as well as watching the inspiring way she leads her life. She has such a contagious light in her that glows, one can’t help but walk out of a session feeling enlightened. I have already recommended Julie to many people.
Julie Veitch graciously provided her excellent coaching services for two important projects, “Pathways to Change” – a Lifestyle Transformation project through Halton Health Foundation, and “The Resiliency Project” – A large scale transition project for the Oakville Hospital.
“We received rave reviews from all of the participants that were fortunate enough to receive your coaching. One staff member commented that it was “life changing”. Staff testimonials were so beautifully written and touched on every positive thing I have heard about you! Thanks again for agreeing to be on the coaching team for these programs. I know your involvement had a valuable impact on all of the lives that you touched. Wish we could use you at the hospital. I will definitely keep you in mind for other programs in the future!
We would highly recommend Julie for any Coaching opportunity and welcome her participation in any future programs that we provide at Halton Healthcare (Oakville, Georgetown & Milton Hospitals).
The biggest shift in working with Julie has been to rediscover my passion and ‘allow’ myself to follow it and feel good about myself. Now I spend more time being aware of how I feel in various situations and areas of my life and have the tools and energy to engage in the things that make me feel good. I feel healthier physically, spiritually and mentally.
I was stuck before I started coaching with Julie. I had tried many different things like therapy, self-help books and courses but could not figure out why I have not been able get to where I wanted to be. In a pretty short time, I’ve exceeded my own expectations. Having struggled with insomnia for many years I now have had some encouraging success with sleep, and as a result I have a much more positive outlook on my life.
Julie helped me realize that not only is it OK (for a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, etc.) to put my own needs & desires first…but vital. I’ve broken free from perpetual negative beliefs and not nearly as fearful or self-critical as I was. I’m experiencing peace, balance, gratitude and being more grounded. I feel I also have a much healthier approach to relationships and do not let others affect me! Thank you so much Julie!
“If you are ready and willing to make a change, if you are ready and willing to communicate with deep and sincere honesty and if you are willing to accept help then I suggest you connect with Julie.
Since working with Julie, after the death of my husband, I have found the courage to go places – physically, emotionally and mentally. I am no longer afraid.
I have learned to work with my whole self, mind and body, to find peace and resolution with the challenges that crop up. I have new tools to work through anxiety and fear of change. I now find myself aware of my thoughts and feelings. This allows me to respond positively to situations rather than react negatively.
Julie is intuitive, gentle, honest, supportive and encouraging. She is the breath of fresh air that you need to revitalize your life.
I worked with Julie as my Executive Coach for 6 months. Her holistic approach and focus on my ‘internal state’ supported significant change within all areas of my ‘whole life’. This incredibly personal work led me to relieve a great deal of my anxiety and to better know myself, which translated to improving all my relationships. Most importantly, I learned to like, accept and believe in myself. When we started I felt isolated, undervalued, fatigued, with low sense of self worth and believing that I had to prove my value.
Through intensive coaching with Julie I learned how to recognize my own internal state and how to reset it. I also learned about my core values and how they fuelled me. We undertook exercises that I applied successfully to daily challenges, which created a physiological shift. I went from tense, strained and cowed to relaxed, strong, stable, and more receptive and capable of addressing these challenges.
As a result of coaching with Julie I raised my level of ability to confidently demonstrate my strength and resiliency as a true leader. I am more efficient, waste less time, provide clearer direction, have become a more active listener, am much more coachable and receptive to constructive feedback and feel a sense of belonging and ownership again.
All areas of my life, both personally and professionally have improved significantly!
I am so grateful to TD bank for investing in me and providing this incredible experience. I hope the testimony above helps illustrate the value of the work and that others at TD can benefit from Julie’s coaching.
K. Champagne, Banking Executive, TD Bank, ON
Every now and again we all need extra direction. Someone who can steer for us and help us to hear our own inner voice which truly knows the way, and forge our own professional path . Julie has been that someone for me, and I am so deeply grateful for her coaching me through my journey of REINVENTION! I watched and admired Julie’s journey and took mental notes. I searched my soul and I found my way with her guidance and support. Words cannot express my deepest gratitude for Julie’s mentoring and incredible example of how possible it is for us all to create a new career that matches all that we are in our core. Her dedication and determination is amazing and I will cherish it on my road to success and always!! Hiring Julie will be one of the best investments you make in yourself!

I cannot say enough amazing things about the coaching work that this amazing woman does! I met Julie on an airplane coming back from British Columbia, and let me tell you, this woman stood out from the crowd both in the departures lounge and on the airplane because she just beamed light!
Even though, I am a coach/practitioner myself, it’s important for me to clear myself out in the same way that I help my clients do so. I was so impressed at Julie’s level of skill, professionalism and at how comfortable she made me feel to approach the uncomfortable, difficult feelings that were arising. Her wonderful guidance enabled me to release what I needed to in order to feel lighter, healthy and wholesome.
She walked me through my feelings of fear of the unknown, doubt, lack of control and made me very aware of the mind-body connection – especially WHERE in my body I was holding onto these blockages. She led me to see how these blockages were potentially manifesting in my life as a result of holding onto them. She supported me in exploring the possibilities that were at my fingertips, and guided me to let go and let life live through me, rather than keeping up the exhausting pattern of trying to control the outcomes!
Julie emanates approachability, patience, mindfulness, compassion, love for the work she does, and she lives every ounce of these things in her own daily life.
I have had mini follow-up maintenance sessions with her and believe that everyone should have their own personal life coach. I would highly recommend THIS life coach! Working with her will truly transform your life and you will not be disappointed.
Coaching with Julie was a blessing. She was very quick to get a pulse on what I was sharing with her. She was very compassionate and helpful with some tools and excellent questions that helped to bring me some clarity on an issue I did not even know existed. As a Coach myself, I understand the value of the process and Julie led me through an extraordinary session of self discovery while helping me learn how to re-centre and focus during times of stress. Thank you Julie for your love and support!
Coaching with Julie has been invaluable on my path toward personal and professional freedom and happiness! It has helped me to land my dream job, become emotionally independent, become more disciplined and care less what people think. Through coaching I’ve learned to strengthen my relationship with myself and find my own way to becoming self-reliant by looking inside myself, rather than looking toward others. I’ve come to trust my gut instincts and rely on myself to make sound decisions as well as handle and manage my own anxiety and emotions. I still use the body centering practice that she made for me every day to stay grounded. It’s been a great investment to help push me back onto my own two feet. Thank you Julie!
It’s amazing how much Julie can help someone get in touch with their feelings and responses through their body. Julie is extremely non-judgmental and is excellent at finding the root cause and bringing it to my attention. I have worked with psychiatrists for my whole life and 3 months with her has given me more self awareness than any other session I have had. She has a very reassuring and calming voice along with an empathetic nature.
Through my coaching with Julie I have increased self-confidence, I AM WORTH IT! I have learned to include mindfulness and wellness into my daily schedule. I was able to stand up for myself and end a toxic relationship and feel the strength to take care of myself. I was skeptical at first but this has been an eye opening and worthwhile experience. I wish insurance plans would see the benefit of life coaching to our health system.
Working with Julie is something I will never forget. When I contacted her I had been struggling with feelings of disconnection, self-criticism, and a lack of joy. I knew something was wrong about the way I was showing up in the world, but I couldn’t quite express it with words. Julie understood. For the first time in a coaching context, I had guidance to go beyond just having to explain how I was feeling and move towards wholeness. A visualization journey unearthed a deep-seeded belief that I was powerless. Turning towards these emotions rather than away from them was what opened the doors to self-compassion. I could see myself differently, discerning truth from the voice of my inner critic. With Julie’s gentle but assertive leadership, I was able to connect with my body’s messages and move energy and emotions that had felt stuck inside. I know this is only the beginning. Julie’s coaching technique was profound, and I loved working with her!
Let me introduce myself as a ‘human doing’. All the coaches that I have worked with before were about having me achieve more and produce more. Working with Julie has brought a new perspective into my life. Her energy is calm and reassuring; her voice and peaceful presence during sessions is amazing. Julie’s wisdom and the ability to connect me to my body and heart, and slow down and listen has been transformational. I always look forward to our sessions and the peace of mind that I gain that lasts for days. She brings peace and calmness in my life as well as balance to help me feel grounded and true to myself. We are in the process of accessing more presence in my body and the wisdom that I have within and it is invaluable. If you are at a time of your life when you are ready to go within and start living life on your terms vs all the obligations – she is an amazing coach for you. Go for it!
You’ve taught me/given me so many tools to manage, cope and grow, such as daily presencing practices, personalized meditation (huge!!), relevant resources and relevant next steps after each session. Learning the skill of tuning into my physical body and listening to it has been invaluable.
After working with you for 6 months I have weathered some bad storms and have achieved greater peace and calm. It’s been a roller coaster but the end results are certainly worth it. It has required time and dedication – which you always have for me and I’ve learned to make for myself. You’re a skilled coach that has helped me with significant self change and personal growth. Thank you!
I chose to work with Julie because I was having an internal unsettling – my mind was busy and unclear and my internal messages to self were less than gentle. I was looking for clarity, joy and peace.
Throughout my sessions I was able to get clear about some of my patterns which were no longer serving me and find a settling within. From this came some clearer boundaries, mental clarity, awareness, decisions, inner confidence, and more life energy.
Julie listens deeply, she guides wisely, she expects you to be accountable to the work and she remains present throughout the process.
Julie has the intuitive, inner wisdom and skill set to guide her client to find and be in touch with their inner voice. She gets to the heart of the matter quickly and in a profound way. With her guidance I tapped into my own body and heart intelligence and reached a true, deeper insight and knowing. With this new understanding, change happened. With her guided sessions Julie includes exercises and homework to be done in between sessions, which is crucial to ensure that progress and lasting change is made.
“I cannot say enough about Julie Veitch and her coaching style and methods. From our very first session to our last, Julie treated me with endless compassion, empathy and respect. She has a natural way of creating a sense of calm even through the toughest or most stressful of discussions. As a result of working with Julie, I was able to connect with my inner self, identify my strengths and make significant improvements in my ability to stay motivated and focused in my business and personal life. Julie has a way of bringing out the best in people and for this reason and many more, I will never hesitate to recommend her and her services. Working with Julie was one of the best investments I could have made for myself.”
I have worked with Julie over the past 24 months since my brother was first diagnosed with terminal cancer. I knew Julie was the “go to” person who would aid me through this rich, emotional journey, given her personal experience with loss of a sibling through a long drawn out dying process. In her soft, gentle and objective way Julie she has guided me to connect with my body as a way in to my own new perspectives around handling the emotions associated with death and the role I have opportunity to play. As a result of coaching with her I have discovered the privilege that a terminal illness can bring to families to connect them into a much deeper place. My most signicant shift since I started working with her has been LETTING GO.
Julie is so good at what she does, that I now know I can handle any situation. I have built inner confidence, self reliance and an unwavering resilience to embrace all that life brings – good and bad.
The saying goes, when one is ready, the right teacher comes along. Or something like that! At any rate, the right teacher did indeed turn up in my life in the form of Julie Veitch. Along with a handful of other wise women entrepreneurs and professionals who participated in Julie’s group program Redefining Success from the Inside Out, we began to find new ways to see ourselves as successful women.
Through her remarkable Inner Core approach, Julie was able to quickly level our playing field with her natural gift of making us all feel included in the process and developed new tools and practices to support seeing ourselves through new eyes. I believe each of us benefited from her gentle leadership, and the connections through our private social media group provided us with additional resources, meditations and relevant coaching. I intend to continue working with Julie Veitch and continue to further redefine success for myself.
The greatest value for me through having Julie as my coach was that I now have the life I have been searching for and thought I could never have. All aspects of my life have changed – relationships (partner, kids, friends), finances, travel. One might think that a coach sees what is wrong and tells you how to fix it but Julie has a unique way of having me ask the tough questions and rediscover myself through finding my own answers along the journey.
I have spent a great deal of time trying to rebuild my life after my divorce and have now rebuilt my relationship with my daughters. Everything in coaching is subtle, but the results are huge. I thank you Julie for all you have done in the rebuilding of my life. I look forward to continuing the journey you help to create.
Julie has the keenly developed sense of subaudition – the ability of understanding or mentally supplying something that hasn’t been expressed. This skill is stunning in its serviceability, and as a client I have an appreciation for the forward movement I have experienced as a result of Julie using these skills. Once Julie is onto something, and speaks it into the safe environment of a coaching session, there are fireworks of knowing and understanding and ultimately, a freeing that happens for the client. My coaching experiences with Julie have resulted in personal break-throughs and I thoroughly trust her to hold the focus on my agenda as client so that I can be the best me possible!
On a personal note, Julie loves people, she is a pure-hearted humanitarian, and being in her presence is a blessing, having her as a coach a gift. It is my delight and honour to testify and speak this truth.
After so many years in therapy I never achieved this kind of progress. In many ways you have offered to me, my whole self – strong and brave and powerful!
I consider myself to be blessed to have had the opportunity to have you as a coach in my life. You have helped me to define some of the personal barricades that I continued to put in my own way of achieving my goals. I was struggling to get out of a cycle that I wasn’t even aware I was keeping myself in. You have helped me to recognize and use the power I have within myself and taught me to focus on the forward movement and accept the past without continuing to be absorbed by it. You have created in me a stronger sense of myself and through continued practice have supported me to define the inner strength that I have always had, but didn’t know how to tap into, until now.
As a very active, go-go-go type of person, I have been able to develop my ability to “just be” and be fully present through having Julie as my coach. I am so grateful for this. As a result, I am more resilient, less anxious, and more focused in my day-to-day life. These are also skills that I will use for the rest of my life!
I also know that our coaching relationship has helped me in developing my “presence” and made me a much stronger leader, both in my coaching, and in my work as a Nurse. In my profession I see too many people everyday who have learned to not listen to, and even worse, not trust, what their body is saying. Julie has a gift of gently bringing one back to the wholeness of ‘being’ and tapping into the brilliance that was always there. I want this for everyone!
Julie has an exquisite way of getting you in touch with the wisdom of the body, becoming fully present, and connecting you with the deep peace and wisdom within (that I now believe lives within everyone!). She helped me embrace who I am at my core, and then guided me in growing and tuning into that part of myself more and more.
I know now, through working with Julie, that I can always trust my body’s intelligence to guide me. Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or without direction, I know that I just need to take a minute and connect with my body, and a sense of calm and intuitive knowing inevitable comes. I would recommend Coaching with Julie to anyone!
Coach Julie Veitch is the real deal!
Julie is extremely likeable, authentic and forthright. She has guided me to help discover my life purpose and how it aligns with my beliefs. A life, where I am able to honour my true values and beliefs, really works. I’m at the beginning of my refined journey and I already feel more fulfilled and a sense of self confidence.
I consider myself lucky to call Julie Veitch my life coach. Every interaction with her is enriching and energizing and at the same time instills a sense of calm and re-balance – like a deep breath of fresh air. Julie ‘walks the talk’ and has a contagious positive attitude and a caring and nurturing way about her. With Julie, the opportunity for growth and self-discovery is opened up through her guidance and encouragement. She provides a safe environment and the tools to really dive deep and take a good look at obstacles getting between you and an even better version of you. Working with Julie has been such a worthwhile investment.
Julie Veitch’s coaching was life changing for me.. it inspired me to make myself accountable to me and my happiness, which translated to being capable of being there for others more fully. Julie is very gifted in what she does and I have often thought that an angel was sent when I needed the support.
When I had a set back, it was quite short lived because I had the tools to make changes and get back on track. I quickly realized that I had the answers and just had to dig deep, breathe and listen to myself. Thank you for showing me how Julie!
My experience of coaching with Julie over the past year has been multifaceted as we have explored together many aspects of my life both personal and professional.
Julie has a gift with coaching that allows you exploration into your own body wisdom and how it can speak and guide you through decision making in your life. She expertly guides you along a path of self-exploration and discovery. She really challenges you but always with a loving, open hearted approach. Through it all Julie has been like a soft warm pool of water… reflecting back to me the internal workings of my head and my heart, and bringing them into much clearer focus in the process.
Julie has a crystal intelligent force filled with certitude and infused commitment that comes through in her compassion for both herself and others. This compassion is felt to the bone when I am with her. Her breath is a mighty power and when it is directed toward one in need, it grounds and stabilizes. Julie has rather defined a richer understanding of just what Grace in a woman is and anyone who is coached by her can only benefit from it.
Julie is a brilliant coach and beautiful role model of staying healthy in mind, body, and spirit. Her soft, guidance and positive words offer much love and support and she exudes an extremely powerful energy that I could feed off of every second of every day!
Julie, just when I was melting down, feeling defeated and demotivated, you were there for me with an open heart and lots of acceptance, not trying to fix me or cheer me up. I appreciate your guidance and support as a coach, especially when those low moments creep into my life. It’s nice to know that you can be with me during them, as a genuinely caring soul. Thank you for accepting and supporting me just as I am.
