Life coaching from London & Madrid
It’s never too late to build the life you really deserve
You should be happy and successful by now and have it all worked out, right?
But every day you remind yourself what’s wrong – you’re not where you thought you would be, your job isn’t fulfilling, your relationship isn’t working, you haven’t accomplished half of what you thought you would have by now – and you don’t know how to put it right. Then there’s that nagging feeling that rest of your life is shrinking with each day that passes.
Feeling ‘stuck’ or that you’ve left it too late to transform your life can be paralysing. But it is totally possible to turn your life around – I should know; I’ve done it.
Working with me, you can re-invent the next phase of your life to be fulfilling and rewarding. A life that you can look back on with deep satisfaction, rather than regret or frustration. It requires an enquiring mind, your commitment to change, and being prepared to hear some straight talking.
Are you ready?
Work with me to change the script on your life
As children, it seems like adults have their lives completely worked out. At some point, we realise they don’t and we think we’ll do better. We think we’ll have it all stitched up by mid life.
So how is it that we can reach 40 and still feel like we’re waiting to get going, with no real clue how to be really happy and successful? What’s missing? And what’s stopping us from making the changes we are all capable of, so that we feel good about who we are and where we are?
Stop panicking. With my coaching, you can get out of that rut and create real, lasting change, no matter how late you feel you’ve left it. You will discover the truth to what’s really getting in the way of your happiness, and together we will design the next phase of your life; a rich and fulfilling life that’s authentic to you. A life you no longer have to question.
So if you’re standing on the precipice and you know you want to make change, the only question to you right now is, where would you like my coaching to take you?
I broke out of the cage of my own making
Self awareness was the key
My personality type is ENFJ – according to the Myers Briggs indicator, a natural leader, coach and teacher. If only I’d known that earlier.
I used to think that the ‘top jobs’ were reserved for ‘special people’ – or certainly people with university degrees. Well, I proved myself wrong.
In my career, I drifted around for years, having no clue of the potential I had, let alone how I could realise it.
At the age of 37, I decided to get my act together. I spent the next ten years 10 years developing my lacklustre career into something worthwhile, culminating in winning the Freelancer of the Year award in 2018. I worked in London’s top marketing and design agencies, sometimes working alongside senior management.
During that time I also worked successfully with my own clients as a marketing consultant and brand strategist, developing my business skills. And why not? I was on a roll…
While all this was happening, I was busy working out how to crack the code of relationships, mine being such a disaster at the time. I’ve pretty much experienced the whole gamut of dating and relationship problems. Not pleasant – but it made me do some serious research. That eventually lead me to the fantastic relationship I now have, and with the added bonus of a whole new life in Madrid.
My joy has come from repeatedly pushing myself out of the comfort zone, and it has given me REAL life learning experiences to coach you from.
How I feel inside now compared to the ‘old me’ is so different, it can’t be put into words. My hope is that with my coaching, more people will realise this kind of transformation and experience the wonder for themselves.
“Gabrielle is straight talking, and definitely walks her talk! She is totally relatable, reliable and real. In just a short time I gained some valuable insights and the impetus to get me out of my funk. I highly recommend her if you want to take your goals to the next level!”
“Gabrielle has a no nonsense but pragmatic and thoughtful approach to coaching. She listens and provides great reasoning. When receiving coaching I found it’s important that you receive empathy and genuineness and Gabrielle definitely has both of these qualities. Highly recommended.”
“Gabrielle was a supportive and insightful coach. She helped me to identify the negative thinking patterns that I wasn’t aware of and to prioritise when I was stuck. Her sessions left me energised and motivated and over the course of the month I made good realistic progress in on a very difficult project.”
“Thank you for all your hard work, I am now mentally and physically on track and beginning to rebuild my life. Thank you for helping me achieve clarity. It was well worth it.”
“Thank you so much for the good work and support you have given me clarifying my business idea and direction. This has been extremely helpful and I wouldn’t have been able to do this without you.”
Gabrielle has a talent for opening up clients’ awareness of themselves in relation to the wider world. She does this through insightful, supportive yet honest questioning. Gabrielle is extremely insightful in the advice she gives clients and the efficiency with which she works. I highly recommend Gabrielle.
