About me

Hi I’m Gayle and I love working with those who are ready to make their next move, but are struggling to get out of their comfort zone, they’re telling themselves that they can‘t do it, it won’t work, I’m rubbish at that.  Sound familiar?  Then read on….

Coaching is all about moving forward, it helps you to see things from a different perspective; it gives you space and time to think and reflect.  It’s really helpful when you’re stuck in a rut in your comfort zone, you can’t see the wood for the trees and / or you feel you’ve lost confidence in your own abilities.

You need clarity on your way forward, you need a shot of courage to take action and once you’ve done this you know you’ll feel more confident.  As your coach I will encourage you and make you accountable for achieving your overall goal.

Focus on Confidence

Are you afraid to take the next step?  Are you telling yourself:

  • It won't work
  • I can't do that
  • They are much better than me
  • Why would anyone want to work with me?
  • It's a rubbish idea

If you answered yes to any of these and you feel they are holding you back, don't worry you're not alone!  This is exactly where coaching comes in and through 1:1 sessions, I will support you so that you:

  • Get CLARITY on your way forward - so that you are clear about exactly what you want to achieve
  • Get COURAGE to take action on your way forward - taking action is what makes a change and you'll be encouraged to do this between sessions
  • Feel your CONFIDENCE grow - confidence is built by taking action and you'll be able to do this once we've unpicked what your confidence looks like for you

When we work together I won't be giving you any of the answers you already have these within you.  As a facilitator of your thinking I will encourage you to discover those answers for yourself.

We'll always be driven by your agenda and your goal, I'll use a variety of different tools and models depending on how you like to work to make sure you get the most out of your coaching experience.

I can promise that working with me will be both enlightening and challenging.  I'm direct, there's no fluff involved and I will hold you accountable for taking action to make a change.  After all, if I didn't do this, what would be the point?

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

Coaching sessions are usually in a public place suitable to the clients requirements or online over Zoom.


I am really flexible and able to work around you and your commitments.
