Julia wrote a wonderful piece on my story about how I beat breast cancer integrating conventional with complementary treatments. I took a complete overhaul of my life & even if given the chance I wouldn’t change my diagnosis. I am so much stronger, healthier & happier now and so grateful to cancer. Julia was an absolute pleasure to work with. Encouraging, thorough & always ensuring I was happy with the piece. The piece resulted in a DPS in the health section of the Sunday Mirror today. A wonderful piece with a huge big pic of me & my lovely boys. Thank you Julia x

We had been through such a harrowing time when our daughter was unwell that I really was so apprehensive about doing this. However when Julia contacted me, she was so kind and massively put me at ease. She took on board what I said and when she read back what she had written, I burst into tears. We thank her for her sensitivity and honesty. It’s a well written piece raising awareness and Julia is so lovely. Thank you xxx

Julia was an absolute pleasure to deal with, she was inquisitive yet empathetic and that was really important to me - that she understood my story. I felt like she took a lot of time to gain my trust and that was invaluable, after all I was letting her in on some of my most private thoughts. A genuinely kind, warm and friendly soul.

From the minute Julia contacted me I felt at ease talking with her, it was a very emotional time, my daughter had passed away from a terrible life long illness, I wanted to get Amy's story out there and with Julia's help that was achieved... Even to the extent of appearing on TV...! Although professional, she is very understanding and helps you to have your say in your own words. Thank you Julia, you've done an amazing job in writing Amy's story and getting cystic fibrosis out there.... * Breathe Easy Amy *

I worked with Julia earlier in the year and would highly recommend her. She remained professional and was very understanding of my needs. I felt engaged and involved throughout.

Telling Julia my story was easy despite it being such a difficult topic for me to open up about. She listened, was patient and got the details right so in turn the finished published story was perfect. It was the story I wanted to tell but couldn't put into words. Thank you, I'll always be grateful x.

I'm so glad I worked with Julia, the process was made so easy and I was really happy with my story about my collection of reborn dolls. I would recommend her to anyone who was thinking of sharing their story, no matter what it's about.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Julia on my life changing experience. I found the whole experience easy going and and above all I felt at ease. It was great to feel reassured by such a professional. I highly recommend working with her with the reassurance of her abilty to understand and assist.

I would whole heartedly recommend sharing your story with Julia Sidwell. I found her approachable and easy-going, whilst ensuring the best professional outcome for my story. The whole experience was quite cathartic and I wouldn’t hesitate to contact her again if I had another story.

I was delighted to be referred to Julia Sidwell to disclose what was a personal and sensitive story. Julia was extremely professional and efficient in her approach to capture the full elements of my story. In addition, she has been a delight to work with. I would highly recommend others to share their story through Julia.

Working with Julia was a breeze from start to finish. She really listened to us and did a great job capturing all the important elements of our story. We were so happy when she read it back to us. The article looked amazing and read even better. We couldn't be happier!

Story published on MailOnline and in Bella magazine

Julia was a consummate professional throughout, asked engaging questions and really getting a feel for my story, even though it was of a delicate nature, following the death of my wife.  Julia grasped what I was setting out to achieve immediately and wrote my story articulately and eloquently. She had a great understanding of the message I was looking to put across. The results were instantaneous - following an in-depth conversation with Julia, she responded with an article that encapsulated the story perfectly and accurately.  The story hit national news almost immediately by being featured on MailOnline and reached a huge audience, which not only raised much-needed funds for our charity, but furthermore generated in excess of 7000 signatures for an online petition for cheaper life-extending cancer drugs.  I would therefore hold no hesitation in recommending Julia in the future.

Julia was very mindful of the sensitive nature of my story when she interviewed me. I felt very comfortable talking to her about what had happened and was very happy with the accuracy of the account she wrote for the magazine.
