"Your body will never lie to you. Your mind will play tricks, but the way you feel in your heart, in your guts, is the truth.”
Miguel Ruiz

I am on your side to support you in identifying and setting goals that will serve your growth and life purpose.

Our first session is definetly going to be worth it.

Training, qualifications & experience

I specialise in the area of clear, assertive communication and coherency. When we are clear with who we are and what we want, life keeps flowing through us. This is called confidence. We trust ourselves. When we start to feel fearful, life becomes stagnant and we become frozen, unable to make a good decision.

I am a trained Psychotherapist and work as a Non-Executive Director for the NHS. I believe in compassionate leadership as the only authentic way to govern. I can help with career and business coaching,as well as leadership and motivation.

        Our values are our compass, which will never get us lost.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I can help in emotional areas such as with very toxic emotions like shame, grief and guilt, as well as aspects of trauma.

I also offer Walk and Talk sessions on Ayr beach. This will energise you, cleanse your heart and your thoughts and leave you feeling fresh and ready for action. If the weather is bad,we will retreat to my clinic just a few minutes from the beach...

Further information


Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are -
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

I say to you, because I have been in this place so many times -'Don't ever quit -things can turn around in a heartbeat.'

                            What people have said about me as their coach:

“I could not think of a better person than Gill to help me with my struggles, especially my shame. The sessions really helped me to put my past behind me, and I got so many insights!!”

I am starting to get to see and hear the real me and can’t thank you enough for helping make this happen.”

“I knew Gill would be the right person to really look underneath at what was holding my employee back and coach her into great performance for the organisation. I recommend Gill -she is brilliant!”
