20 years experience in organisational coaching and recruitment, 12 years in private practice supporting inner and outer transformation, an extensive network of regenerative people and organisations, and rich and diverse life experience.

My books include Hearing our Calling, about finding the right work, and The Trembling Warrior, all about courageous activism for gentle souls.

What clients say:

'I went to see Gill following a crisis of confidence and a loss of direction after nearly twenty years in my profession. The sessions helped me achieve perspective on two difficult episodes and focus on what I really wanted from my career as well as practical steps to achieve it. As a result, I found a new, exciting job where I can use my experience and skills.' (Sue)

 'Gill has been excellent at helping me take the first steps in creating my own business venture, something that I have wanted to do for many years, and has helped turn the courage of my convictions into an actionable plan. Gill is an astute and effective listener and able to gently and assertively pull up by the roots what is really going on.' (Paul)

'Working with Gill over the past few weeks has been incredibly invaluable. She is very perceptive, and has helped me move forward from a difficult time, which I didn’t believe would be possible. Gill has provided me with the support, insight and tools I needed to work through my life/career challenges, for which I am very grateful.' (Claire)

'Gill has a deep understanding about people and the world we live and work in; her quiet perceptiveness and ability to truly listen enabled me to quickly focus on the issues which were significant to the impasse in which I had found myself. Gill's kind and professional manner allowed me to trust her with my most sensitive feelings. Whatever happens next for me, this experience has been a profoundly valuable turning point.' (Frances)

'My work with Gill has been deeply significant and often surprising. She is extremely insightful and brings together great expertise and skill in a sensitive and effective way. Gill very quickly tailored her approach to our coaching work in a way that fits my personality and the particular issues we are working with really well. She brings humour, compassion and professionalism into the coaching relationship and I always feel supported by her.'  (Helen)

'By giving me a safe and nurturing space in which to explore my calling, Gill enabled me to rediscover a greater confidence in a more authentic me, and to channel my skills into fulfilling work. After each session I left with greater clarity and renewed energy to share with those around me.' (Patrick)

'I sought Gill's help at a time when I was feeling a little stuck and a little lost.  I needed to find a way of making a living which I could tolerate and which would enable me to live in an authentic way. After just six sessions, I'm delighted with where I've got to - I now have a job that seems just right for what I need now, and I'm also working on projects which could lead to exciting places. Without Gill's help, I'm pretty sure I would still be lost and struggling. Gill really wants to understand what I most care about and what issues are affecting me in order to help me most effectively. Gill works with the utmost sensitivity and integrity, and knows how to help me achieve what I want to achieve.' (Alison)

'Gill has a gift for asking the right questions in the right way. Her approach helped me reframe a sense of defeat into an experiment with a new direction. She also helped me define what it is I want to get from my work. All this helped me to see that I could meet my objectives in ways I hadn't previously considered.' (Richard)

'Gill is very good at developing life coaching based on the individual’s personality rather than a one size fits all model. She has greatly helped me to understand how I naturally operate, the strengths and blind spots I possess and the opportunities to use this insight to better achieve my goals.I have been surprised by the insights I have gained, beyond what I was expecting.' (Emily) 

'Although I only had one session with Gill, she seemed to catch the essence of my dilemma quickly, and what was in my way within myself, and lead me to some clarity about what options to explore next. All within an hour!' (Kamali) 

Gill's holistic approach, coupled with her depth of experience and knowledge have allowed me to really explore and develop - to reconnect with my inner self. As a non-linear thinker Gill's methods have worked really well, this has been achieved by her understanding of diverse thinking. My work with Gill is ongoing, I always end sessions with some new wisdom about myself and the world I wish to live in.' (Teresa)
