calmer christmas landscape

You want to enjoy Christmas but…

  • You seem to be in charge of everything from shopping to entertaining to present wrapping to organising the diary
  • You feel responsible for making sure Christmas is perfect and everyone's happy
  • You get stuck trying to please everyone and not let anyone down
  • Your needs get pushed to the bottom of the pile
  • You feel guilty when spending time with family and friends feels overwhelming and exhausting
  • You want to enjoy Christmas, to feel relaxed and calm, but the lead-up and the big day leaves you feeling more frazzled than festive

Let's make this year different. It's absolutely possible for you to manage the overwhelm along with your expectations, soothe your stressed nerves, take care of yourself as well as everyone else, enjoy the festive season more and create the calm Christmas you want.

What kind of Christmas do you want?

You can feel more calm,
relaxed and in control this Christmas

In the Calmer Christmas self-paced, online course we will explore:

  • the challenges that get in the way of you having the Christmas you'd like
  • the obstacles that stop you from feeling the way you want
  • the practical action you can take to make this Christmas feel different to previous years

We'll look at:

  • how you can take care of your own needs
  • while still caring about those around you
  • ways to manage the juggling act of doing ALL the things 

We'll not shy away from the difficulties the festive season can bring, the tension, heartache and sadness.

And we'll bring back the fun! Exploring ways you can create the relaxed, calm, joy-filled Christmas you want in ways that work for you.

Swap festive frazzle for fun

What this course will do… and what it won't

Calmer Christmas won't miraculously make your Christmas perfect. And anyone who tells you that they can make anything in life perfect isn't being entirely truthful! It won't have a solution for every possible family argument, it won't magic money into your bank account or add an extra six hours to your day.

What this course will do is:

  • empower you to get clear on your thoughts and expectations around the festive season
  • identify what you really want to do and how you want to feel
  • explore what you find challenging
  • and it will provide tools, information, inspiration and action steps to create the peaceful and joyful Christmas you really want

“Gabrielle's deep knowledge of how we think and positive psychology is a breath of fresh air. Everything she shares is authentic, uplifting and genuinely helpful.”
– Al

I created Calmer Christmas so you can feel less stress and more joy this festive season

As someone who spent several years visiting four houses on Christmas Day alone (an overly-responsible, perfectionist, people-pleaser, moi?!) I know just how overwhelming the festive season can be.

Understanding what was behind my Christmas stress, identifying what would create more peace and joy for me at this time of year and taking action to make it happen, revolutionised my experience of the festive season (I know that sounds grandiose but, really, it did).

The ripple effect is that everyone around me gets a much better version of me too, one that's more relaxed, appreciative, present and happier! So it isn't just me who benefits.

Calmer Christmas FAQs

As soon as you complete your purchase of this course you get access to Calmer Christmas in its entirety. 

For the lifetime of the course, 12 months at the very least, most likely a lot longer.

The course is stored in a secure, private, online classroom so you need a computer, tablet or smartphone to read or listen to the course content and download the worksheet PDFs. 

And a printer if you want to print the worksheets but you can just write on paper instead.

As soon as you purchase Calmer Christmas you'll have instant access to the whole course in the private classroom where you’ll find the written and audio content available to you.

It's a self-paced course so you can go at your own pace.

Yes! You can take this self-paced course at your own pace. There is no timetable, no pressure and no falling behind.

Not at all. There are only two short meditations and, like everything in this course, you choose what you do or don't do.

If you’ve tried meditation before and aren’t sure about it, I’d say give it another go. The couple of meditations are there to support you, not stress you out, and I guide you through them in the audio.

You don’t need anything but yourself and no sitting cross-legged, incense burning or chanting is required. Unless you want to.

You can read feedback from previous participants of my courses, with details of their experience and how the courses have impacted their lives, on this page.

A bit about me

I'm Gabrielle and I help caring, empathetic, big-hearted women to feel calm, peaceful, confident and, ultimately, happier.

As an empathetic introvert and overdoing people-pleaser I have been on a long journey to build my resilience, increase my tolerance to uncertainty, feel more in control (and be okay with what's out of my power) and find calm and confidence.

In my work as a certified international life and positive psychology coach I have supported individuals and organisations such as The Prince’s Trust, CareFirst, Design Nation and Choose to be Healthy Coalition in the US, for more than six years.

As a writer I have written for and being featured in many magazines such as Psychologies, Breathe, The Simple Things, Happy News and the Daily Express newspaper.

I host the Pressing Pause podcast, I’ve been interviewed as a guest on other podcasts and invited to speak at events. Through my one to one coaching, online courses and workshops I've helped more than 2,100 women find more space, peace, calm and joy in their daily lives.
