About Me

Hello and Welcome!

Hello! I’m delighted to welcome you to my corner of the world.

Originally from the U.K., I now call the serene and picturesque Titirangi in West Auckland my home. I live here with my wonderful husband and our two rascal dogs, Rocky and Oscar.

We have two adult children: our son, an Engineer in Auckland, and our daughter, who runs her own business back in the U.K.  Needless to say, I’m immensely proud of them both and cherish the time we spend together.

My Journey to Coaching

With 25 years of corporate experience, including a decade at Director level, my professional path has been diverse and fulfilling.

Throughout my career, I’ve balanced employment and self-employment, driven by a passion for people and a love for tackling challenges.

Founding and running a successful marketing and social media agency was a significant chapter of my life. However, I reached a crossroads that coincided with my children flying the nest. This pivotal moment led me to seek clarity on my next steps.

I realised my true passion lay in combining a people-facing role with strategic thinking. This epiphany guided me to retrain as a business coach and establish my coaching practice.

Today, I am honoured to support women in business, helping them navigate their professional and personal journeys with confidence and clarity.

Executive Business Coach - Julia Ngapo

The values I believe in

Authenticity – Helping you stay true to yourself and your business vision
Empowerment – Supporting you, challenging you when necessary to discover and develop.
Partnership – Partnering with you, every step of the way
Integrity – Helping you stay aligned with your values

Julia provided a psychologically safe space to explore challenges, unpack them and seek a better way forward. It was a great investment of time to reflect with a thinking partner and challenger of thoughts. I can confidently say I am walking away with a deeper sense of self awareness, self accountability and have made many positive incremental changes along the way to improve my career, business, and life.

My Coaching Philosophy

My coaching practice is grounded in my core values of authenticity, compassion, connection, courage, intuition, expertise, and service.

I am passionate about supporting women to stand in their power, own their worth, and live life to their full potential. I believe that by fostering self-awareness and resilience, we can achieve remarkable growth in both our personal and professional lives.

Life in Titirangi

Living in Titirangi is a blessing. The peace and quiet of this area, nestled in the bush yet moments away from the sea, provides the perfect environment for relaxation and recharging. I am thrilled to be able to offer a slice of this tranquillity to clients who choose to escape their office environment and, instead, join me in my home for their session.

I love exploring the stunning beaches of New Zealand and indulging in the country’s excellent coffee – I haven’t had a bad cup yet! Being part of the strong and supportive community in Titirangi is something I deeply value.

Let’s Connect

I invite you to join me on a journey of growth and self-discovery. If you are a woman seeking to enhance your confidence, resilience, and clarity, both in business and in life, let’s chat. Together, we can unlock your full potential and achieve the success you deserve.

I have worked with Julia for a few years and the thing I love the most is her ability to find solutions. Julia has such a positive approach and the work is all very practical. Her knowledge of all things
business is incredible. She is always there to support me with a gentle nudge forward when I’ve needed it.

What I appreciate is her honesty and integrity, I know I can share my successes and struggles just the same and she will help me navigate my way back to a feeling of balance.

She has a huge capacity to understand Intuitively, what it will take for you to achieve your goals and dreams. I always felt she wanted me to succeed almost as much as I did, sometimes more!

An added magic is the fact she works with you as a whole; mind, body, spirit. So you not only achieve your goals and success but also feel balanced enough to enjoy it. I would highly recommend Julia as a coach, mentor and business leader.
