'Through Gabriela's sessions, I am becoming more and more able to articulate what my desires are. I feel more confident in saying: I am a writer.'

My work as a Creative Coach
A client recently commented about our work together, saying 'the best thing is, I feel free - free to keep exploring and keep experimenting.'
This is absolutely at the core of my coaching. I am here to work in collaboration with you, to enable your ideas and dreams to surface and lead.
How do I do this?
Mainly through my ability to witness. Witnessing everything a client says, and doesn’t say, is lovely work. I have often been the first person to hear many things from my clients. These are ideas we keep in the shadows, desires we have stuck with a pin and deflated. In my coaching space, the light comes on and the balloons rise.
What do you want?
What do you really want to achieve as a writer or creative?
What would that be like?
I work hard to keep my clients in an inspired place. We look at the world you want to foster, rather than concentrating on the past. If we try to fashion a life based on the outcomes of previous experience we simply continue in the same cycle, creating what we already know. I enable you to step beyond that, into a larger arena.
I will be with you each step of the way. The role of a coach gives a form of support that is distinct from any other. Life Coaching provides a way by which one person can truly support the progress of another. I choose to work with writers and creatives because of the power of the imagination. It is fascinating to work with this resource, and to enable people to do the same.
When someone listens - when they explore your ideas and seek to understand you, caring about what you say - and also the way you say it - you find new resources, new perspectives.
That's when you feel powerful enough to talk about what you really want. My questions then become the quality of light by which we move forward.
Is Coaching right for you?
If you have a sense that you could be achieving more, or want to hear more positive beliefs about yourself in the back of your mind, then this is a great place to start. If you seek help to form new habits, or want to feel differently, and like the sound of approaching this in a creative way, coaching is a perfect option.
You may feel unsure, or even nervous about contacting a coach. In my experience this is a sign that you are about to make a big change in your life, and a coach is the perfect support for that.
When you work with me, you are saying I want the very best for myself, even if that feels scary. You don’t need to know what that is, or even how it will happen, you only need to want it very much.
