The Tree of Resilience - book


Take an opportunity to watch the brief video highlighting  the acorns of resilient growth taken from the book The Tree of Resilience    

Currently this book can be purchased from Amazon in paperback or kindle - what do the reader say about it?


  • What a fantastic book! Unlike a lot of books about Resilience which are rather one dimensional, Julie considers the range of factors that influence our ability to cope with life’s challenges. Julie describes the inspirational stories of a number of different women (including herself) which really bring the subject to life and illustrate the importance of the 8 key elements, or ‘acorns’ of resilience. If you’re working within the field of coaching or counselling, this text will help you reflect on how you currently help your clients develop their levels of resilience and provide food for thought on other strategies/techniques you might want to consider using. For anyone wanting to reflect on and build their own levels of resilience, this is an essential read.


  • I had been struggling to read at all for some time when I started reading this on New Year's Eve .... and couldn't put it down. Pulled immediately into the stories I first felt a little in awe of these apparent superwomen that had overcome challenges but as I read they became more and more real. Through them I discovered new resources I had forgotten. It helped me to re-frame the health challenge of extreme stress I was facing and gave me a new optimism and sense of hope for the New Year. Thank you Julie.

Optimal Resilience Development Programme - NHS Graduates

Natures Coaching featured testimonial

Context The graduates join a 2 year scheme that has been competitive to join and requires a level of resilience to support them in the challenges they face during their two / two and half year programme. They are supported nationally on leadership development and actively participate in a variety of positions within the NHS across the country. This puts them in new surroundings, often on their own in an organisation and often meaning they are away from their support network. Finding that the strategies that they have for dealing with their challenges are not always as effective as they would like. The aim was to support the graduates over a 2 day programme to increase the number of their resilience strategies, helping them to build their resilience so when they did need to be resilient they were able to pull on what they needed more easily
