I'm a certified personal and professional development coach, master practitioner of NLP and motivational speaker.
I passionately believe that we can all be happier and more positive on a daily basis. As corny as it sounds, happiness is a choice and sometimes we need to work hard to achieve it. It's all about mindset and deciding what we need to do in life to be happy and content with who we are and what we are achieving. It's so easy to just settle in life, but how sad to look back and understand that we could have been happier, or that we wasted our potential.
Happiness may be linked to your career and professional success or perhaps to your work/life balance or your personal development. By working with me you can really explore what matters to you and make a plan to start living life with more positivity.
What holds us back and keeps us 'stuck' in a situation is not the external circumstances but how we interpret these circumstances: what we tell ourselves and the beliefs we hold which focus on not being good enough/being scared/not having the right experience/(add your own reason in!) to really go for it!
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the International Coach Federation, a certified professional coach, a master practitioner of NLP and a LAB profile practitioner.
What does this all mean to you? I have a number of tools and techniques which can be tailored to meet your individual needs. I am particularly interested in the language we use and how that impacts on our outcomes.
My clients come from a vast array of backgrounds from NHS and the pharmaceutical industry, manufacturing and small businesses to the Law and stay at home mums wanting to improve their outlook. Working with issues relating to confidence and career, business success and relationships. Clients have been amazed at the difference they see in themselves from their very first session.

I currently charge £70 per session. I recommend an initial ignite session at a reduced cost of £40 to allow you to set yourself a really brilliant goal to start working towards and also to demonstrate how quickly you can start feeling more positive. There needs to be a high level of trust and rapport in the coaching relationship so this is also a brilliant way of checking we are a good fit. The number of sessions necessary varies between clients - I have had clients who just need the first session to get a bit of clarity and others who choose to come for an extended period because they are facing a number of ongoing challenges. The average number is probably around 6 sessions which will allow you to truly develop and change your self-limiting thought patterns.
I am based in Broughty Ferry, Dundee and most of my clients visit me at home. We can also work together over the phone or Skype or can meet at a mutually convenient location throughout the country. Get in touch to discuss logistics - travel costs would apply if I need to come to you.
'Thank you so much for your help so far. I felt tonight was a real watershed moment for me and on our journey. The difference you've helped me make to my life so has been remarkable and I'm in the most positive frame of mind for years.' Stuart
'Gill enabled me to have a good look at myself, a good conversation with myself and to finally unlock a self-imposed gate. She did this by allowing and encouraging only me to ask and answer my questions and she is undoubtedly a very skilled listener and coach' - Stan
'Before all the New Year madness begins I just wanted to acknowledge and thank you for the work and support you have given me this year with goal setting. Two of the most pivotal moments for me this year involved our sessions. This was the moment I needed to evaluate and arrive at the decision to move on. Thank you for providing the opportunity to think through where I needed to go! Sometimes people come along in life and make a huge positive difference. You have helped me do that this year. Very inspiring ' Jemma
'It was great to have time to think things over in a neutral environment... I would definitely recommend Gill to my friends who are feeling a bit low'. Wendi
Gill is very easy to build rapport with, and always a positive voice on the other end of the phone. Her attention to detail is remarkable. She catches my nuances and lets me know about them at the end of our conversations, helps highlight things that I have missed in myself. Through working with Gill I noticed that I am giving myself too hard a time, and that I have much to celebrate. This has built on my self concept and provided much needed motivation. - Sarah
