You want to feel ease, joy, calm, confident and in control.

Hi, I'm Gabrielle


I help introverted women who feel overwhelmed by everything they have to and are expected to do, who feel like they're not in control of their own lives any more, to feel calm, free, confident and happy.

As an introvert and a lifelong overdoing people-pleaser myself I have spent years learning, experimenting and practising the teachings of positive psychology to discover how I could feel more relaxed, more in control and really enjoy my life in my own way.

It's because of this research and direct experience, along with training to become a certified life coach, that I'm able to empower you to feel calmer and confident in yourself, to feel in control and better able to cope, and to experience more joy and ease each day.


"I can’t thank you enough for the difference your course has made to my life already and I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface so far. Lots of people around me have been noticing the change in me. For the first time in a long while I’m feeling optimistic for the future."
– Beverley Dent

  • You want to stop trying to please everyone and keep them happy, at the expense of your own peace of mind.

  • You want to feel able to say no, kindly and confidently, and to stop feeling obliged to do ALL the things.

  • You want to be free from worrying what other people think and the weight of their expectations. 

  • You want to feel confident in yourself, able to make decisions, use your voice and meet your needs.

  • You want to feel joy in every day, to feel relaxed, confident in yourself, and face the world feeling calm and in control.

  • Here’s what I have to share with you:

What makes me happy...

…reading for hours … walks in the woods with my husband and pooch … hearing my nieces and nephews laugh … tea and cake … starting a new notebook … sharing a meal with my friends … pottering around my veg beds … singing along to my favourite songs very loudly … the smell of freesias … Italy … feeling the sun on my face…
