"The kids in my home base really enjoy the conversations we have had during Julia's Life Hacs course. Growing up in a world where well being is part of their education, I have been really impressed with the discussions we have had about growth mindset, positive self talk, choices and values. I recommend Life Hacs for any teacher who wants to help kids develop their sense of self in the world.  Julia's value-for-money lessons are easy to follow, the content is prescriptive yet flexible (for those of us who have been teaching a while!) and they hold the interest of the students. Give them a go, and be impressed by your students' soft skills!" - Niki Stephenson - Learning Advisor

"I really like these lessons because they have a good meaning. They teach people to have self-confidence and they teach people that what they think matters and will affect what they do. I have learned a lot from these lessons and always look forward to them". - Anon - Student

 "My name Sumayyah and I really like these classes because they help me believe​ in myself and they teach me not to be      negative but positive". - Student

“I felt really mentally ‘stuck’ in a work situation and couldn’t seem to make any kind of clear decision. I felt fragmented and a bit fearful of making changes. Julia was very respectful, gentle and encouraging in her manner and after just one session I felt completely empowered and reassured about following my heart and moving forward toward the changes I needed to make, to achieve my goals.

I would absolutely recommend Julia”
