Do these sound familiar?
- Your stress levels sky rocket any time there’s an unexpected change or something goes wrong
- You feel like everything’s out of your control
- You’re exhausted from not getting enough, quality sleep
- You’re irritable and grumpy, and then guilt-ridden for being that way
- You think everyone else is managing better than you
- You feel frazzled, overwhelmed and you can’t see it changing any time soon
- You want to feel more relaxed and at peace
- You want to be in the driving seat of your own life
- You want to feel confident you can deal with whatever's round the corner
- You want to trust in yourself and your inner strength
In Rooted the course, you will discover what's going on inside of you (as well as outside) that's making you feel overwhelmed, stressed, irritable and exhausted, how to recognise your hidden stress symptoms, and why it's so important you don't ignore them.
You'll learn how to help yourself feel calmer in the moment and long-term, what you can do to feel more in control in an uncertain world, and how to build your confidence so you feel stronger and able to cope, whatever the world throws at you.
"I enjoyed Rooted very much and it came at the perfect time as a few days later we went into a sudden full lockdown. But I was able to stay a lot calmer than I know I would have done before Rooted. I’ve used all of these ideas and they’ve been such a help."
– Ana Alicia
I’ve designed this course to do exactly what it says in its name, to help you feel:
- Rooted and strong
- Calm and peaceful
- Empowered and in control
- Confident that you can cope with whatever challenges come your way
It’s a self-paced course which means that you can go at your own speed, there’s no falling behind because you have access to the complete course in its entirety and can choose the pace you want to work at.
I walk you through the course in a series of videos (available with captions and transcripts) and workbooks, all stored in the private online classroom. You have audio recordings of the videos so you can listen without watching and the transcripts and captioned video mean you can read or watch without audio.
- Strategies based in positive psychology so you can build your own toolbox to access peace in the moment as well as create a longer lasting feeling of calm
- Practical, doable ways to reclaim your power and put yourself back in the driving seat of your own life
- How to build your resiliency and confidence so you truly believe that you have the strength and resources to face challenges now and in the future
Every other month I hold 1:1 office hours and during that time you can message me through Voxer – a free walkie-talkie app that allows us to exchange voice and text messages – about anything that's come up for you in the course and I'll reply to you with a personalised response. Dates and times for the bi-monthly Voxer office hours, and how to join in, will be shared via email.
"An enormous thank you for Rooted, it’s full of so many pearls of knowledge and wisdom. Perfectly pitched, covering the most necessary of topics and ways to manage with all your great strategies, it really is a super useful and positively mind-changing thing."
– Dr Sam Anthony
What is resiliency?
Resiliency isn't about being tough and hard, immovable in the face of difficulty, and it doesn't mean you're immune to upset or pain. Resiliency is about being able to adapt and respond when life gets stressful and things go wrong. It doesn't mean always being positive and having the solution, it means asking for help when you need it and allowing your feelings, whatever they are.
It’s as if you’re a tree who bends and sways in the storm – your experiences may change and shape you – but you don’t snap in two.
There's a lot about the systems in our world that don't work for us and changes need to be made to address the inequalities. Strengthening your own resiliency while these structures are tackled gives you the chance to feel better able to cope, with less overwhelm and more calm. When there is much out of our control this helps us to focus on the power we do have.
"I really love the course – the science behind what you share as well as the practical strategies to deal with how I'm feeling. I've been putting the exercises into practice and I'm recognising what works for me."
What you can do when you feel calm, in control and confident you can cope
- Sleep better, have more energy and fewer aches and pains
- Be more focused and able to concentrate
- Respond to changes or bad news with calm and consideration
- Have a wider perspective so you can see a way forward when things get tricky
- Trust in yourself and your inner strength
- Relax, feel at peace and enjoy your time with the people you care about
- Be more patient, creative and come up with solutions to problems
- Feel healthier, stronger and less stressed

“Gabrielle’s skilled, supportive, positive, non-judgmental approach helped me to build my resilience for the future.”
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.
"The practical element of it gave me concrete things to do and try and felt so manageable and weren't overwhelming."
