Psychological Life Coach

About me

I coach people on how to unlock their full potential, manage their emotions, overcome life challenges, and design and live the life they dream of.

I do this by focusing on three main areas:

  • Reach your goals: dream, plan and take action
  • Change unhelpful thinking patterns
  • Capitalise on your strengths

My practice is based on both Goal Focused and Life Management Techniques as well as Cognitive Behaviour/Physiological science.


- Anxiety
- Anger
- Capitalising on your strengths and true motivations
- Career
- Creating life balance
- Dealing with change
- Developing healthy habits
- Fear
- Finance management
- Perfectionism
- Procrastination
- Productivity
- Relationships
- Self confidence
- Stress
- Time management

About my method

Alongside Cognitive Behaviour Psychology Coaching methods and strategic and practical approach to goal setting and action planning I base my method on a number of philosophical and practical basis.

Reason and creativity

Together we will understand where you are, who you are and what your real motivations are, as well as what resources you have available and what your true vision is. We’ll define what your own life’s artwork will look like.

New perspectives

We often remain stuck in a situation because we can’t see things being any different. It is always possible to see things differently, and change things without adding anything to what we already have, only changing the way we look at things.

Holistic approach

Often various spheres of life are interconnected and affect one another. I’ll make sure we have looked into what else may effect your goals in the various areas of life and work to improve all of those that have an impact.

Strategic management

Time management, resource management, finance management and wellness management all need a strategic approach and good planning.

Humour and Fun

Life should be fun and humour is a wonderful and very useful tool for life. Ultimately you are here because you want to make your life better and happier, and I do my job because it makes me happy and a better person. For this I’ll guarantee some laughs and light moments. Because yes, hard work is key for great achievements, but remaining lighthearted helps with keeping a smile on your face and avoiding unnecessary grief.

True motivations and personal values

Seeking authenticity is the key to true happiness. This is because once we feel strong in our beliefs and find our motivations we automatically have the strength to do all that we want, with less fear, and without being conditioned by those around us. All while feeling confident and energetic.

The power of our minds

At the basis of mine and your work in our coaching journey is the fundamental understanding and strong belief that we have power over our thoughts and consequently we can control our emotions and life outcomes. We can become skilled thinkers, becoming aware ‘in the moment’ of how our beliefs and assumptions are limiting our perspective or choices.


“Working with Gaia has been an absolute gift - from the very first session she felt like my team mate, someone who's fully committed to me and helping me improve my life and relationship with myself. Her mix of honesty, humour and kindness instantly put me at ease, helping me open up and really delve into the core of my goals. Her reflections during our sessions were succinct and astute, delivered in a way that I understood and could build upon. I never felt forced into a conclusion, always that Gaia was facilitating a conversation with myself. The tools that she gave me after our sessions (articles to read, mantras to try, guided meditation suggestions) really helped me commit to and accelerate my process. I always finish a session feeling empowered, energised and excited.”

"A friend recommended Gaia to me as I was completely stuck and very unhappy in my work. Although a little sceptical about life coaching, I was willing to try anything to remedy the situation. Gaia is extremely friendly, approachable and has a great ability to make you reflect on your goals and make changes that are within your reach. I was completely taken aback at how effective the process was and the changes to my work life have been astounding, going from hating my job and feeling completely stuck, to actually enjoying my work now including better relationships with work colleagues and real progression in my career. I cannot thank her enough what she has helped me to achieve in so little time and I cannot recommend her enough!"

“Gaia is insightful, kind, patient and absurdly easy to open up to and be honest with. What's so amazing, is that she finds a way to make you feel incredibly empowered throughout the entire experience, as she reflects everything back that you say to show you that you actually hold all the answers and solutions to your challenges. I found her instantly warm and interested and invested, and she has proven to be the ultimate coach I needed at this stage in my life, whilst also showing me that I have the strength, resilience and wisdom to be my own best mentor too. Continuing to work with her has been one of the easiest, best decisions I've made and I couldn't recommend her more highly.”
