Dr Julia Carden
Julia’s coaching work focuses on working with individuals and teams to take off their blinkers to expand and deepen self-awareness, to identify existing strengths, new options, and choices. She has a deep interest in self-awareness and how it helps us develop and grow, by enabling firstly self-connection and then connection with others. This approach is underpinned by her PhD research into Self-Awareness. Working with Julia will enable you to gain a deeper understanding of self, your impact on others and develop new thinking and insight to support your journey towards success for yourself and the systems you live and work in.
She is an ICF certified PCC and an EMCC accredited Master Practitioner Coach, and an accredited Coaching Supervisor. Her core values of authenticity, choice and competence underpin all her work. It is important to Julia that she is adding value to the client and the wider organisation, so she works with the system in mind, and before taking on an assignment, she ensures that all parties are content, comfortable and clear with the relationship. Julia draws on a wide range of psychological dimensions in her coaching work; including “Time to Think”, gestalt and psychodynamic approaches. She is also qualified to draw upon a range of psychometric tools including: OPQ, 16PF, Lumina Spark & MBTI. In addition, she is an NLP Master Practitioner.
Alongside her coaching and supervision practice Julia is a visiting tutor at Henley Business School, teaching on the Professional Certificate in Executive Coaching, the MSc in Coaching for Behavioural Change and heads up the Professional Certificate in Coaching Supervision.
Her own development journey is ongoing, and she is passionate about her own CPD so invests in regular coaching supervision (both individual and group), and keeps up to date with a range of webinars. Outside of work she relishes spending time with her husband and supporting their son in his bourgeoning eventing career.
