Gabrielle Treanor with Georgie the Dog

Hi, I'm

I'm The Overthinkers' Coach as well as a writer, teacher and podcaster. I can help you (as I have 1500+ others) spend less time overthinking and more time enjoying your life.

I’ve spent a considerable chunk of my life researching and experimenting to find out how we can live with more ease, joy and contentment

My journey into self-development and wellbeing has not been an easy one – I’ve been an overthinker all my life and, at times, let it get the better of me. But, several years ago I decided that however daunting it felt, I wanted to live my life on my terms. Through my research into positive psychology, exploring and experimenting in my own life, I’ve discovered how we can all thrive in our lives by worrying less and experiencing more contentment, positivity, peace and joy.

Life isn’t just for living, it’s for thriving.

I know that you want to feel lighter, calmer, more free and to lose the heavy feeling of worries dragging you down.

I know that you want to go to bed each night secure in the knowledge that your mind didn't rule your day and you refused to let overthinking get in the way of you feeling the contentment and joy you want to.

You’re not looking for every day to be filled with rainbows and starbursts and short-term pleasure but you do want your million-thoughts-a-minute brain to slow and quieten down.

You want to feel the real, long-term, bone-deep contentment and joy that comes from keeping worries in perspective, from appreciating the little things in life, from having moments where you feel at peace, from making real connections, from not getting swallowed up in drama and stress, from knowing that you’re living life as you choose.

Living a thriving, contented life is not about pretending everything’s fine and perfect, and it’s not about denying difficult feelings.

  • It’s about making the choice to live as you want, experiencing all of life in its many shades.
  • It’s about being mindful of how you go about your day, appreciating and enjoying what you have.
  • It’s about finding meaning and connections, making a conscious intention to live your life to its full potential.
  • It’s about meeting life’s challenges and setbacks with resilience and strength.

You can worry less and enjoy life more.

You no longer need to feel like you’re struggling through life, trying not to feel overwhelmed, doing what's expected of you, attempting to keep a grip on everything and waiting for when it gets good in the future. Your life is for finding joy, ease, fulfilment and connection now. Your life is yours to live as you want, whatever that looks like, and it’s entirely within your reach. Through my research and direct experience I’ve devised strategies and actions for you to reduce your overthinking, build your resilience and enjoy life more.

Everything I teach is inspired by and created from proven scientific research in the field of positive psychology and my own experiences. As well as my own research I’ve studied life coaching with the Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy, positive psychology coaching with the Wholebeing Institute, mindfulness with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University, and I’ve completed the Brain Science and Wellness Education Program with the Neuroscience Academy. What I teach is practical, applicable, realistic and doable. I can’t wait for us to get started. Here’s what I have to share with you:

Private Facebook group

I've created a safe place where we can gather and share what’s going on in our overthinking heads. It’s a free Facebook group where I draw on my years of research and experience to share with you ideas, inspiration and actions to empower you to worry less and enjoy your life more. We don’t deny the difficulties we’re experiencing and we do look for the good stuff in life and shine a light on it. Join me in the group by clicking this link.

Emails and blog posts

I share ideas, inspiration and information for positive personal development, as well as interviews with others living their best life. Each week (usually a Thursday) I send out an email Note with ideas and inspiration, updates on what’s happening in my life, on new courses, photo challenges on Instagram, blog post links and access to the Nook of Inspiration. You can sign up to receive my emails at the bottom of this page.

The Nook of Inspiration

The Nook of Inspiration is where you can find a wealth of free resources including a mindfulness guide, printables, recommended books, podcasts and apps, TED talks, recorded meditations, desktop wallpapers and more. Everyone who receives my emails gets access to the Nook of Inspiration.

“Gabrielle offers thoughtful, wise and alternative ways to rethink a situation and turn every negative into a positive. She allows me to feel and express my emotions with patience and with no judgement. Most of all Gabrielle has taught me the power of gratitude, which, with practice, has helped retrain my mind to focus on the positives, no matter how small or big they might be. Gabrielle is a beacon of happiness within my life.”
