You can be free from the busy mind your busy life creates.
Imagine your world without it.
As seen in:
Do you struggle with overdoing and overthinking?
Do you feel stressed replaying the past and what if-ing the future?
Are you tired of doing ALL the things and worrying what everyone else thinks?
Do you feel like you're missing out on fun and life is passing you by?
You're in the right place
By coaching with me you will move from being stuck in the non-stop busyness that leads to overthinking, overwhelm and stress and instead feel lighter, calmer, more able to cope and free.

“My husband says 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!”
Does this sound familiar?
You're juggling All The Things, constantly on the go with barely a moment to sit down and catch your breath. Your busy life means your mind is always on, leading to overthinking and feeling frazzled. You struggle to feel calm, often feeling uncomfortable rather than confident. Even when you know you're getting bogged down in your thoughts you find it hard to slow down the whirlwind in your mind and focus on the present moment.
You're only just about keeping a grip on it all, you worry what others are thinking of you, you feel responsible for everyone else's happiness and you worry that if you drop one ball everything will collapse around you.
If this sounds like you I have good news. It sucks to feel this way but this is NOT how your life has to be. You don’t have to stay stuck in the overdoing and overthinking, feeling worn out, stressed and like your life is passing you by.
“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.”
Here's what I believe is possible for you
A calmer and freer, more relaxed and confident, happier and more joy-filled life.
Why do I believe this?
Because this is what I've seen my clients create. Freedom from feeling they have to do all the things and worrying so much about what other people think of them. A more relaxed attitude to what could happen in the future and the ability to let go of what's happened in the past. Feeling able to say no when they want and yes when they do. Freedom from the need to be the perfect person who's responsible for everyone's happiness. Feeling capable of coping with whatever happens next.
Together we work through your self-doubt, the stories that hold you back, and the noise in your head, and take action to empower you to live your life in a way that feels right for you. The calm, free, relaxed, confident, happy and joy-filled life you want.

“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.”
I get it, and it's completely understandable, I felt the same way, I was worried (yay, more worry!) that I would be opening a can of worms and who knows what would come spilling out that I'd have to deal with!
But here's the thing about coaching: we don't rake over the past, we don't look backwards and delve into 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 guide and support you every step of the way.

“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.”
Frequently Asked Questions
For most of my life I lived in my head – overthinking, rehashing the past, what if-ing the future and thinking that if I could just keep control of all that’s going on everything and everyone would be okay.
And then, things changed, I changed. I’d had enough of feeling stuck in my head and I was done with overthinking everything. I wanted to feel freedom in my life and I was ready to take action (read my About page for more). So, I learned how to untangle myself from my thoughts, to soothe my worrying brain, to feel calm, light, less stressed, to deal better with challenges and to really participate in my life, feeling more joy each day.
I’m still a deep thinker. I still care greatly about the people and world around me. There are times when I catch myself what if-ing but it’s okay because I can recognise when it’s helpful and, most importantly, when it’s not, and I know how to help myself before my brain spirals off into an overthinking whirlwind.
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.
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, with a nine or ten hour time difference, and it hasn't been a problem. Together we'll find a time for our coaching calls that work for both of us.
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.
By working together for four months in the Freedom Sessions you can really take significant steps and find freedom from your overthinking.
Before you sign up to coaching or pay any money you complete a 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. Then we have a complimentary 30mins phone call to talk about your questionnaire and to see if we both feel that coaching together is right for you.
At this point no money has changed hands so if you decide not to pursue coaching you can walk away and I wish you very well.
If after our phone chat we agree to coach together, this is where things get exciting! We have a video coaching call every two weeks beginning with a 90mins session and the following calls are 60mins long. So during the four months we have eight calls.
After each call I send you an audio recording and any resources or worksheets that I feel may be helpful. You are welcome to email me any time throughout our coaching so that I can support you in between our calls too.

When worry stops you from being able to function in daily life it may be developing into anxiety disorder. 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 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.”
