Resilience is the difference between success and burn-out in today’s business world. In these challenging times of stress and constant change, join other women entrepreneurs for a 90-minute workshop led by Registered Social Service Worker Julie Sweeney.

In this online workshop, participants will learn how to build resilience by:

  • Developing a healthy relationship with success
  • Trusting your intuition
  • Becoming more aware of your personal roadblocks
  • And creating a consistent self-care practice

Take part in this interactive presentation and grow your resilience skill set as we make our way through the challenges of COVID-19 into a healthier, more hopeful future.

NOTE: Attendees will be emailed a Zoom link to the online session two hours before the event.


Julie Sweeney, RSSW, MTC is a client-centered, solution-focused counsellor who specializes in supporting women in finding freedom for themselves.

Registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) as a social service worker and the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists (ACCT) as a Master Therapeutic Counsellor, Julie offers openness, honesty, and a willingness to be part of your journey in a way best suited to your needs.

Using a HAES-based lens aimed at helping clients feel less alone in their struggles with body image, Julie offers women the opportunity to develop new skills and ways of thinking.

Outside of her specialty with body image and self-esteem, she also works with clients experiencing anxiety, focusing on self-care and changing negative coping habits. Julie works with clients one-on-one, in workshops, and in groups, both in person and online.
