Dealing with Feelings

Our culture's inability to allow us to be vulnerable leaves with a complex relationship with our feelings. Ignored and they come back to overwhelm you, suppressed and they make you ill. Through this informative and challenging seminar learn how you can allow yourself the full range of your feelings without scaring yourself or others.
Julian is down to earth, humble and extremely knowledgeable. Working with him was an absolute pleasure. When he gave his talk on the pillars of stress the room fell silent and you could've heard a pin drop. Everyone, including myself, resonated so much with what he was saying and fully engaged with his techniques. University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire

I partook in one of Julian's day workshops via work, and can't recommend him enough. It had an immediate impact on me and I was walking around grinning like an idiot for about a fortnight afterwards. I have been making a conscious effort to apply the processes Julian took my group through, and have shared them with my sister who also loved them.

I attended one of Julian’s emotional resilience courses in 2018. His insight into self esteem and his personal story gave me the courage to make some major changes in my work life. He helped me review my perspectives and literally changed my life.

Lloyd's Register

Julian came to deliver some sessions for us in November 2017. I would have no hesitation in recommending Julian and Calm People. Ahead of the session he was really helpful scoping out our requirements, and on the day he presented exceptionally well. The staff found him really engaging, and took tangible things away that would benefit them at both work and at home.
