21 day course - a journey to train your brain to overcome negative thoughts and become more positive
Cultivating a practice of self compassion is a powerful tool to train our brains to become more positive.
I have created a programme designed specifically for women who feel stuck and held back by their limiting and negative thoughts and have had tremendous results with it.
After the Self Compassion journey together, 50% of participants increased their self compassion rating from low to moderate self compassion and 30% increased their self compassion from low to high. And that was with just 5 minutes a day for 3 weeks!

What participants say:
‘I loved Julie's Self-Compassion Journey group. I had always been curious about trying meditation, and this group gave me the perfect opportunity to do so in a safe, guided environment. Julie provided structure, accountability, and camaraderie via the program's design, which included the opportunity to meet with a group of women on the journey along with me. I found her five-minute meditation to be relaxing, manageable for my schedule, and the impetus to incorporate meditation in my life -- it provided a sense of peace and grounding in the midst of busy days. The words she used resonated with me and encouraged me to grant myself the same grace and compassion I extend to others. I am inspired to continue on the journey and seek ways to set aside negative self-talk, practice self-compassion, and recognize that I am not alone in my pain/discomfort in life. I would highly recommend this program to other women who want to experience increased peacefulness and acceptance in their lives.’
‘I participated in Julie's 21 Day Self-Compassion journey and it was the best thing for me. The meditation has helped me take time to unwind and remind myself that even in these tough times, it's going to be okay and that things will get better. Thank you Julie!’
‘The 21-day-self-compassion-journey really has brought me closer to myself. Julie is a great coach who asks the right questions and her company and guidance have helped me a lot to pull through with doing the mediation everyday. And it is so powerful! 21 days later I really am softer on myself and can deal with difficult emotions more easily. I do feel more at ease and happier. Thanks so much!’
‘I was part of Julie's 21-day self-compassion course and I have to say how much it has impacted the way I treat myself. Before the course, I was hyper-critical to myself and I felt inadequate on so many levels. I felt guilty about feeling this way and felt so alone in my pain. With Julie's support and accountability, I've learned to be kinder to myself and remember that vulnerability is part of being human. She has a gentle, calm, and non-judgmental nature that helped me deeply in my self-compassion journey. Her strategies are simple, yet so powerful! I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to join her course, and I would encourage anyone needing more self-compassion to reach out to Julie. You'll transform the way you treat yourself, for good.’
‘The self-compassion course has helped me so much by allowing me to to re-frame my thinking. I could even feel a shift in my mindset from very early on in the course.
The course was really accessible and well thought out. It was helpful to first understand self-compassion and to assess where my struggles were. As we started the course, it was great to work with others in order to create a habit - I then had the flexibility to test out the self compassion meditation based on my own routine.
As a result of the course, I’ve found that I am also more self aware during the day and will use key questions from the meditation in order to reflect and reassure myself.
To top it off, Julie is a wonderful and thoughtful coach; our group sessions were a great opportunity to get help from her and to hear from others who were on the journey too. Thank you Julie! It’s been such a help to me, especially during lockdown.’
‘Julie’s self-compassion journey, and committing to meditating regularly with a group over 21 days, is a great way to introduce the powerful meditation habit into your life. Julie is always available to give her expertise over the 21days if you need extra support. Thank you Julie for this gift.’
‘Having recently graduated from university and entering the job market at uncertain times I have been struggling to retain a positive attitude and have confidence in my abilities, which is why I was very excited to join Julie’s 21 Day Self Compassion Journey. The class has not only helped me acknowledge that self compassion is an important element of my mental health and my ability to succeed, it also showed that self compassion is something many women struggle with on a daily basis.
After having been made aware of the extremely negative ways I talk to myself, joining several group sessions and doing Julie’s guided meditation every day, I have definitely noticed a shift in my self compassion and am able to catch myself before spiraling back down into negative self talk.
Especially in difficult times like these it is important to realize that we are not alone, and the way we speak to ourselves on a daily basis has a massive impact on our overall wellbeing as well as our ability to succeed.’
‘I had thought meditation was something I couldn't do, but I found the sessions a really good introduction and found myself applying the techniques whenever I could. I have noticed a difference in how I feel about myself and how I react in different situations. Julie has a very calming voice and is very easy to listen to, she is also very supportive but in a non pressuring way.’
‘Great course! It was nice to have meditation class to look forward to every week. Julie was professional, and warming. The meditation really helped me relax and relieved some stress.’
‘Julie is very warm, kind, caring, accepting, easy to talk to and listens. She is knowledgeable, wise and kind hearted and her techniques work.’
‘Julie Leonard has been a guiding light for me. Her calm and caring demeanor always puts you at ease. Taking part in her Course and the Intentional Happiness Club has given me concrete tools and guidance to refer and work with when I am struggling. I would highly recommend Julie time and time again!’
‘Transforming your life is something that so many want, yet feels entirely impossible. This is for the woman who knows she was made for more, and just not certain how to open the door’
‘With Julie’s guidance, I was able to get out of the rut that I could see no way out of. I’m now living with intention and purpose. And, I’m much happier for it!’
‘Julie has such a calming voice.’
‘Julie is a wonderful and thoughtful coach; our group sessions were a great opportunity to get help from her and to hear from others who were on the journey too.’
