Release the struggle of coping with chronic illness and lay the foundations to thrive!

Are you tired of battling with a long-term health condition like ME/CFS or Long Covid? Are you ready to let go of striving to regain your health and discover a simpler path towards a more fulfilling and holistic sense of wellbeing?

Ask yourself:

  • Do you feel held back by your health?
  • Are you struggling with the emotions that come with losing your health, such as anger, frustration, grief, and anxiety about the future?
  • Do you find yourself resisting your limited energy, pushing and crashing, or resisting what you have lost?
  • Does striving for better health and functioning feel like an endless uphill battle?

Imagine finding a more relaxed way to take control of your wellbeing and move towards better health. What if you could let your healing come naturally, simply by learning to be at ease with the life you have?

Let me share my story:

I have personally lived with ME/CFS for over 20 years, and regardless of my level of functioning, I have discovered how to experience joyful wellness most of the time. In fact, my initial seven-year recovery, happened as a result of  stumbling upon the secret of letting life be easy, going with the flow, and embracing life as it is. Throughout the second occurrence of this illness, I’ve been able to enjoy an amazing quality of life. However, two years ago, after receiving covid vaccines, it seemed as though the universe wanted to remind me of my life’s work. My level of functioning plummeted, and I had to draw upon everything I had learned and evolve to a new level of creating joyful wellness. Over the past eight years, I have shared many of these skills through my coaching, creating numerous courses and group programmes. In January, I had an epiphany—a divine download—and I identified four distinct skill levels involved in thriving with a chronic illness: grounding, nurturing, living, and thriving.

Lay your foundations to thrive!

Join our nurturing and supportive community to learn the essential skills needed to thrive when living with a long-term health condition. For just £33 a month, I will guide you in laying the foundations not only for thriving with a chronic illness but also for cultivating skills that will support your overall resilience in the face of any challenges life may throw at you.

By learning to accept and embrace your current life, you empower yourself to find the easiest and most energy-efficient steps forward. Letting go of resistance allows you to reclaim precious energy that can be wisely spent on your joyful wellness journey. With sound energy management skills, you gain the ability to choose where you direct your energy, avoiding the constant push and crash cycle that hinders progress. Mastering your emotions also becomes a valuable tool for reclaiming wasted energy and accessing a state where joy is more readily accessible. Rather than constantly striving for better functioning, you can learn to let your wellness evolve naturally through finding peace with what is.

But will it be too much for me?

Rest assured, this program is designed with your wellbeing in mind. While the more you invest in it, the more you’ll benefit, you can still achieve significant results with just 15 minutes a day, in addition to the weekly meetings (see below for more details).

My testimonial page is filled with countless testimonials from the past eight years of working with individuals with energy-limiting chronic illnesses. Here are some relevant ones that showcase the experiences of current and past group members:

I’ve been a member since the beginning of the groups. This is a fantastic way to gain support from someone who truly understands and has endless skills to guide you through any challenge you may face. The magic of group sessions amplifies your learning as you benefit from others’ experiences. There’s never any pressure to attend live, as the coaching sessions are recorded. If you’re unsure, give it a go. You have nothing to lose, but I bet you’ll gain a lot.” – Lorraine

In this brief video interview, Aditi shared how she used to be very hard on herself. However, being in my membership program helped her cultivate self-compassion. Her life has become easier and lighter. She particularly enjoyed our regular group meetings, where we shared our experiences. Aditi also mentioned that I am loving, compassionate, present, possess a wealth of helpful experience, and always provide insightful answers to the group members’ questions.

Before Jane joined my group, she was constantly worrying and frequently in tears. Now, she has become much more relaxed and finds joy in the little moments. On a recent Facebook post, she commented,

Julie is a brilliant, caring, funny holistic coach. I highly recommend her courses.”

Additionally, here are a few testimonials from previous groups I led that focused on similar themes:

The best part of the program was being part of a group and feeling motivated to keep going. When you’re alone, it’s easy to postpone things and put them aside, especially when they require energy. Having a coach and a structured system helped me put things into place for myself. Julie’s lovely, relaxed approach was a true inspiration. She is very knowledgeable, brilliant at answering questions and finding solutions, and adept at addressing challenges specific to CFS patients that others can’t clearly answer. I highly recommend her.” – Al


I have continued to use what I have learned and have found that I feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually better. Julie is an excellent coach—encouraging and supportive.” – Dorian


As I write this, I am realizing the overall difference this course has made in my life and healing. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart, Julie. I have always believed that things and people come into our lives when we need them most, and this rings true with you. I was desperate to find a way to heal not just physically but spiritually and emotionally, and I didn’t know where to turn. Then one day, there you were on my Facebook feed, and what a great day that was!… So thank you once again for what you do and the loving, nurturing, and caring way you do it. I wish you all the love, nurturing, and care back tenfold. With much love,” – Leslie

Are you ready to achieve these results too? Ready to stop wasting energy on struggling, striving, and pushing that rock up the hill?

Leave behind the stunted progress and regular setbacks caused by the push-crash cycle. It’s time to learn how to let life be easier and lay the foundations to thrive with ease and joy.

How much time and energy do you need to make the most out of the program?

Each week, there will be a brief teaching video of 5-15 minutes, which you can watch at your own convenience. I will also share a well-being practice that typically takes about 5 minutes a day, along with journaling questions that can be completed in less than 10 minutes daily. I strongly believe that significant achievements can be made through small steps, and dedicating just 15 minutes a day can help you acquire skills that will make a real difference in your life. Additionally, there will be a weekly 45-60 minute group session.

When do the live sessions take place?

The weekly zoom calls alternate a support group session on Tuesday at 10am (UK time) with a coaching/mentoring session on Wednesday at 4pm (UK time: 8am pacific; 11am eastern). For those of you, on the other side of the Atlantic, who will be in the land of nod during the Tuesday session, there is an option to join my existing support group which takes place at 4pm. The coaching sessions are recorded and the support group sessions can be too, with the agreement of all members.

How long is the program?

This programme consists of just over six months’ worth of modules (29 weeks). If you stay for the entire six months, you will have lifetime access to the materials. Otherwise, the materials will only be accessible while you’re an active member of the program.

Is there a commitment in terms of how long you need to join?

There is a 3 month minimum commitment to the programme. I’m confident that you’re going to love being with us but if after three weeks, you’re certain it’s not for you, I’ll cancel your subscription imediately and you won’t be charged again.

I have personally been in your shoes and have helped hundreds of people regain control over their well-being and start truly enjoying their lives. You can achieve it too!

Still not sure?

Why start now?

The most compelling reason is that the sooner you begin, the sooner you can start enjoying an easier, more relaxed, and more fulfilling life. We will all be starting together on the 15th of July, and I won’t be accepting new members after Monday (17th) until we commence the next module in a month’s time.

But I have a lot on my plate at the moment. Can I start later?

Yes, you can certainly start later. However, consider that you might be losing valuable energy to stress and tension right now. By joining now, you’ll discover how to reclaim that energy and utilize it more wisely. Participating in the program can help you effectively deal with the challenges you may currently be facing. If the timing truly isn’t right for you, don’t worry—I’ll quietly open the doors again in four weeks’ time. Let me know if you’d like a reminder then!

When do I need to decide?

The program’s doors will close on Monday evening (17th) to allow everyone to start together and create a safe and supportive community.

Financial constraints due to illness?

Take a moment to imagine feeling more at ease with your life, confident that you are moving towards better health and wellness. Picture yourself no longer engaged in a constant battle with difficult emotions, but instead choosing to invest your energy in activities that bring you joy. What would that be worth to you? This membership offers one of the most affordable ways to access the kind of support that will lead you there!

Need a quick chat to discuss whether this is the right programme for you?

Use my contact form to let me know when you might be available in the next few days, and don’t forget to let me know where you live and what time zone you are in!

The first lesson will be added to this programme on Saturday 22nd July.
