About Gillian

Do you sometime struggle to understand others or make decisions? Are you looking for increased clarity, more resilience, less stress, a greater sense of well-being and peace of mind?  I can help. 

I have been working with clients on their relationships (both personal and professional); their careers; their leadership and management skills since 2003.  My breadth and depth of experience, together with a unique skill set and understanding of human behaviour, results in a coaching style that is flexible, creative, and responsive to the needs of my clients, which operates at a very deep core level, and one that gets results.

I am particularly strong in supporting clients to get clarity about what they want and to identify and overcome barriers to success.  I support my clients to access their innate resilience and well-being, create positive, fulfilling and productive relationships and make important decisions they can trust and take action on.

    Gill is a great career coach who really got to the heart of what I was looking for. Through her excellent phone counselling I gained a much better idea of what direction I needed to go with my career. Cheers Gill!

    If you are wondering whether you will benefit from executive coaching I would highly recommend Gill. Like all good coaches she draws out the skills you already have but that are perhaps lying dormant. It is easy to get stuck in the same old tried and tested ways of working and Gill encourages you to think of alternative ways to tackle problems and develop the way you approach them. Gill doesn’t give you the answer but helps you develop your own techniques and a way of thinking that will help in all aspects of your professional practice. If top sports stars receive coaching then why not high performing business people?

    Gill provides a safe space to discuss your career hopes and fears, asking insightful questions so you can see the wood for the trees. She helped me to identify the talents I need to be using and information I need to find, in order to be on the right path to finding work which inspires me. I do not feel I would have achieved this without Gill.

    Gill is a professional “through and through” and combines her knowledge and experience to successfully coach with enthusiasm, determination and skill. Gill clearly understands people and knows how to get the best from them. Gill has successfully coached me through some interesting situations and I am a more self aware, confident and successful for knowing her. It’s been a pleasure to have worked with Gill as my executive coach over these past years and I would highly recommend her to anyone…...
