Calm and in

Control

Feel the calm, confidence, peace, ease and joy that you long for through 1:1 coaching with me.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You're juggling All The Things and feel like you're on a hamster wheel that never stops.

  • You feel obliged to please people and meet their needs but struggle to do what you want, even when you know it will be good for you.

  • You feel the weight of others' expectations and worry what people think of you.

  • You're seen as the organised, responsible one but that's a heavy pressure.

  • You're an introvert who needs quiet alone time to recharge your battery after being around people.

  • You're exhausted and overwhelmed by the feeling of obligation and the 'shoulds' and you don't feel in control of your own life.

  • This isn't what you thought your life would look or feel like, you want to feel peaceful, relaxed, comfortable and to laugh more.

  • On paper everything seems fine but you're not feeling it. You're just not as happy as you think you should be, as you could be, as you really want to be.

I get it, I really do. It sucks to feel this way but this is NOT how your life has to be. Happiness isn’t a destination you arrive at and no-one’s life, including mine, is perfect (because that doesn’t exist) but it is absolutely possible to feel happier.

“I’m happier and I don’t get so phased by challenges. I feel I understand myself so much more now. When I started coaching with Gabrielle I was feeling overwhelmed, lots of things needed my time and attention and there was little time left for me. By the end of our time together I feel more confident, able, in control and I’m having more fun!”
- Esme

Imagine if you could…

  • Feel happier in your life as it is right now without the need to quit your job or move country (unless you want to)

  • Be free from feeling obliged to do ALL the things and worrying what other people think of you

  • Feel able to take the time you need to process, rest and recharge

  • Feel able to say no when you want and yes when you do, without feeling guilty

  • Feel more relaxed about what could happen in the future and able to let go of what's happened in the past

  • Be free from feeling you have to put everyone else first and meet their needs before your own

  • Feel more comfortable in your own skin, confident and capable of handling whatever happens next

  • Simply feel happier every day

Why 1:1 coaching?

I believe – I know – this is achievable for you because it's how my clients feel after coaching with me.

The beauty of one to one coaching is that we focus on your specific challenges in your unique life. We don't talk in the abstract or in theory, we address the reality of your situation, finding a way forward that works practically in your life. This bespoke, tailored, personal approach is only possible when you and I work together, one to one. It's unique to coaching and simply isn't doable in a course, workshop or membership setting.

This is what makes coaching so powerful, so valuable, so transformational, and it can make all the difference to you and your life.

Laura-Rees

“I have found the whole experience transformative, I couldn't have got here without Gabrielle. Before I started coaching I would get to the end of a week feeling exhausted and stressed. Now I feel my brain has slowed down and the battle to stop overthinking is getting far easier. I feel more calm than I ever have and more confident that I can reach goals that I've set myself. As a result of coaching with Gabrielle I'm worrying far less than ever before.”
- Laura Rees

A few of the topics we can work on together

  • Managing the mean girl voice in your head, identifying unhelpful thinking and beliefs that hold you back

  • Procrastination, perfectionism and the fear of getting things wrong

  • The pressure of expectations from your family and friends, as well as your own

  • Practising inner self-care – taking care of your mental wellbeing

  • Feeling invisible as you take care of everyone else while your own needs get forgotten about

  • Developing a sense of personal autonomy through self-knowledge and self-worth

  • Recognising and working with the gifts of your introverted nature

  • Tuning into your intuition, creating a clearer sense of your own identity and voice

  • Confidence in your ability to deal with challenges and make decisions

  • Creating boundaries that support healthy relationships

  • Developing supportive habits and practices that you stick to without a struggle

  • Making space for fun, relaxation, creativity and joy

The Overthinkers Coach - client Karin Joyce

“I feel like I can breathe properly, like a weight has come away from my shoulders. My husband has noticed that I am far calmer and more patient. My friends have noticed that I have a new bounce in my step and I believe that my children have benefitted massively as I am seeing them modelling my behaviour and mindset. 

“I feel that I am a better wife, mother, friend and me as a result of Gabrielle’s support and guidance. I feel more confident about who I am and what I need. I am happier, look at things in a calmer and more peaceful way and haven’t let myself get so emotionally upset with various life events.”
- Karin Joyce

Let's free you to be you

I know all to well how it feels to be overwhelmed by your to do list, by the needs of your family, friends and work, by the pressure of expectations (from others and your own), by the worries of what other people think, of not having enough hours in the day, if you’re letting anyone down, if you’re good enough… I know that heavy feeling pressing down on you and how hard it is to see a way forward.

Finding support is the way out of this overdoing, overthinking, overwhelm. Talking to someone who understands what you’re going through, who will support you to feel back in control of your life and empower you to feel calm, in control, able to cope and to feel happier every day.

I’m that someone for you.

Together we will put you back in the driving seat of your life and find the way forward for you that's unique to you. I don't tell you what to do – that's not empowering – I support, I encourage and I'm your accountability partner when needed.

There are different ways we can work together, one to one, to allow you to live your life in a way that feels good for you and to feel happier.

Take a look at your options below.

The Overthinkers Coach - client Issie Freeman

“I have emerged from our time together a more creative and confident version of myself. Gabrielle expressed her belief in me and recognised the progress I was making each session – this was invaluable and kept me going through the tough times. She fully heard and understood what my struggles were and I felt supported and confident working with her. The environment she created, along with powerful questions and insightful reflections, led to some real ah-ha moments. Coaching with Gabrielle has been a truly enriching experience.”
- Issie Freeman

Feeling nervous?

I get it, and it's completely understandable, I felt the same way the first time I worked with a coach.

Here's the thing about coaching: we don't rake over the past, rooting around in what came before. 

In coaching we look forwards. We talk through how you want to feel, what you want to do, how you want to be and what's getting in your way. And then, together, we take it step by step, coming up with ideas and actions for how you can move forwards towards living the life you want, feeling the way you want. 

This is your life and you will be the one taking action but you're not on your own. I have years of experience, study and practice under my belt, and I'm here to support you every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know what it’s like to be overwhelmed and not feel in control of your own life?

For most of my life I felt I needed to fit in, to do what was expected, to keep the peace and make people happy, to do what I should, to feel a certain way and it was overwhelming – in my life and in my head. I was overdoing and overthinking with an inability to do what felt right for me, to feel calm or in control. 

And then, things changed, I changed. I wanted to feel freedom in my life, I wanted to feel in control of my own life, and I was ready to take action. So, I learned how to bring down the overwhelm, to soothe my busy brain, to feel calm, light, less stressed, to deal better with challenges, to feel in control and to really participate in my life, feeling more joy each day.

How and where do the coaching sessions take place?

Our coaching sessions are held on Zoom which means you can be anywhere in the world! We talk face to face, over the internet, and I record the audio of our sessions and email you the recording so you can listen to it again whenever you like. We also stay in touch by email between our calls.

Does it matter if I live in a different country or time zone to you?

Not at all. Because our coaching sessions are online video calls through Skype or Zoom you can be anywhere in the world! I've worked with people in different time zones and it hasn't been a problem. Together we'll find a time for our coaching calls that work for both of us.

What’s the difference between coaching and counselling?

Coaching is different to therapy and counselling in a number of ways. Therapy is more focused on diagnosed anxiety disorders and within sessions you may investigate causes for the anxiety, looking back to the past for explanations. Coaching is very much about looking forward and you, the client, taking positive action steps towards the life you want without needing to explore the past.

With coaching we set goals for how you want to feel and be, and actions to keep you moving towards the goals. As your coach I ask powerful questions, listen, inspire, I hold you accountable, explore what’s coming up for you as the client and support you to stay in positive action. I may make suggestions, provide resources and support but I don't give instructions or tell you what to do. Coaching is very much about empowering you the client to self-actualise and do the work to keep the momentum going to move towards your goals.

What happens in the Focus Calls?

When you're feeling under pressure and tight on time we need to get you shifting out of overwhelm quickly. By working together for three weeks we can address the most pressing challenge in a short space of time.

After completing the questionnaire I'll send you which helps you to get clearer on what you want to focus on in our time together, we'll have our first 75mins video call. This is where we'll focus in on your greatest challenge and together we'll create an action plan for you to tackle your overwhelm over the following three weeks.

During those three weeks we stay in close contact over email.

Then we have our 30mins follow-up call to see how you're feeling and how you're going to continue moving forward and out of your overwhelm. 

I'll send you the audio recording of both calls and any resources or worksheets that I feel may be helpful.

What happens in the Freedom Sessions?

By working together for four months in the Freedom Sessions you'll be surprised by the shifts that can happen and how empowered you will feel by the action you take.

After completing the questionnaire which helps you to get clearer on how you want to feel and be and what's getting in the way of that now, we'll have our first video coaching call which is 90mins long. Then, about every two weeks after that we have our video coaching calls, which are 60mins long each. In total during the four months we have eight coaching calls. 

After each call I'll send you an audio recording and any resources I feel may be helpful. We stay in contact over email between our calls so that I can continue to provide the support, and often accountability, you need. 

If you're struggling to function in daily life it may be advisable to seek treatment from a trained counsellor or psychotherapist. Speak to your GP, check out the UK Council for Psychotherapy psychotherapy.org.uk or call Mind on 0300 1233393.

I’m a certified life coach having completed training with the Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy and positive psychology coaching with the Wholebeing Institute. I am committed to ongoing professional and personal development.

The Overthinkers Coach - client Juliet Thomas

“I overachieved on my goal and made lots of progress on the surrounding actions. I also felt a greater sense of purpose within our busy family roles (ie not just a mum taxi and chef). I chose to coach with Gabrielle due to her years of experience in positive psychology. Having someone to be accountable to made all the difference to me and my motivation was spring-boarded! I cannot recommend Gabrielle highly enough, she's someone you’d be very thankful to have in your life.”
