About me

Hi, my name is Gina and I'm a warm, flexible and empathic coach and therapist with the skills and commitment to help you make the changes that will transform your life.

What is coaching and NLP all about?

Coaching, NLP and positive psychology are powerful tools in helping people to move from where they are to where they want to be in life. Being able to use these techniques to help people to discover their inner strength and resourcefulness is an amazing privilege.

I love watching the truly transformational changes that people become able to make after only a few sessions. Where people have found themselves unable to move forward in life, or to achieve their goals I can help them to see things from a clearer perspective, gaining clarity and control of their situation, and supporting them to make the decisions that can support self development and transform their life!

"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." Jimmy Dean

Mindfulness, ACT and DBT skills are amazing in their ability to help people take control of their physical and mental health. Being able to support people to regulate their emotional responses and manage pain (physical and emotional) is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain"

What can coaching & NLP do for me?

Have you ever found yourself at a point where you just don't seem to be able to move forward in life, or are unable to achieve your goals? It could be that you don't know where to start, keep getting stuck or just can't see the wood for the trees.

People from all walks of life can find themselves needing time and space to think about the next step, and this is where effective coaching can help.

I can help you to move from where you are now to where you want to be by giving you the tools to see things from a clearer perspective, gaining clarity and control of your situation, and by supporting you to make the decisions that can transform your life!

  • You will become more empowered, confident, more effective and feel able and ready to reach your full potential
  • You will discover resources within yourself which will enable you to identify and achieve your goals
  • You will lead a happier, more enriched and fulfilled life.
  • Your relationships with all around you will improve dramatically.

My skills will support you on your own unique journey and I offer a fully individual, bespoke service based on your circumstances, needs and life experience.

Within a completely professional, non judgmental and fully confidential environment I will encourage you to feel relaxed, validated and listened to as you peel off the layers of stress and anxiety to be your true authentic self and to look inside yourself at what truly makes you happy. We will work together towards your goals and towards achieving all you want and deserve to have in your life. Whether you are looking for business coaching, career coaching, personal development and growth or improvements to your health, coaching can change your life in ways you never imagined possible.

Coaching, NLP and positive psychology can help with:

  • Identifying what really makes you happy
  • Making major life changes
  • Gaining control of stress and anxiety
  • Confidence and self esteem
  • Body image and weight management
  • Health goals
  • Increasing Energy levels
  • Motivation, Drive and Leadership
  • Reaching job and career goals
  • Career mentoring
  • Overcoming difficult circumstances (such as redundancy, grief, loss) and moving forward in a positive way
  • Overcoming fear and phobia
  • Managing overwhelming situations
  • Relationships (family and friendships) and conflict resolution
  • Breaking unhelpful habits/behaviours.

What can I expect to happen?

We will start with a complimentary 30 minute telephone consultation where we can have an informal chat. You can get a feel for if you'd like to work with me and I can explore how I can best support you. If you feel happy we can then agree how you would like to go forward. This can be face to face sessions in my lovely relaxing therapy rooms, telephone, Skype or e mail - what ever you feel suits you best. Because I like to offer a completely bespoke service we can have any combinations of these and I am happy to work with you out of office hours.

I also run Life Coaching, Mindfulness Now and Action for Happiness workshops throughout the year and details will be updated on this site.

* I was offered life coaching sessions with Gina while suffering the after effects of stress induced "burnout" from my workplace. I had no idea what these sessions would be like or by what methods they would be practiced as I had never experienced a stress related illness before. I found Gina to be immediately comfortable to be with, she quickly identified the best methods to help me to recover and I genuinely enjoyed these interactions. The techniques she showed me helped me to recover and to get through difficult moments upon my return to the workplace. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Gina, she shines with kindness and really wants to help you to get better. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gina and would gladly use her services again if need be.

* My recent Life coaching sessions with Gina have been really helpful in giving me clarity about what I want to do and have helped me to put things into perspective. Gina is a warm, friendly and attentive therapist and I found it very easy to build rapport with her and feel at ease. Our sessions were clear meaningful and positive and I felt much more focused and calm after each of them. Coaching with Gina has been a really positive and inspirational experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gina to anyone who needs to take stock, re-evaluate and make changes to their life. It's been a thoroughly brilliant experience.

* Things from my end are so good right now. Thanks Gina for all you've done for me. I feel more confident and in control of my life. You have really helped me to see a way forward and I'm excited about the future now!

* Gina, the facilitator, was inspirational; she is a very committed and skilful therapist and I would recommend her to anyone who feels they need some direction in their life.

* Loved this course - will definitely be promoting to others!

* Thank you so much for restoring my faith in humanity! It’s been a brutal few years for current events and it’s been so heartening to know that others value this project and it’s goals.
