Though I have never met Gay in person I feel that we have known each other for ages. Despite having different cultural backgrounds, we understood each other instantly.
I had 12 sessions of coaching with her over Skype, which I very much enjoyed. I liked her overall approach about me as a whole integrated person and the curiosity she addressed each and every problem. Her method involving visual technique has been helping me ever since.
As Gay encouraged me to work on different aspects of a difficulty I was facing, I found that storytelling through visual arts helped me with those challenges I could not resolve in my “real life”.
I was referred to Gay through a good friend who had previously worked with her, and highly recommended her for both her methods and her presence.
After moving to a new country and into a new position at work, I was feeling a bit stuck, and like I was living a shadow of the life I had previously been living, both professionally and personally.
At the beginning, it was clear to me that I wanted to focus our time together on finding a path to a different lifestyle and career, perhaps out of the corporate world. And though I was experiencing some challenges at work, I wanted to avoid that topic, and focus our time on the things I am passionate about.
It became clear to me, however, through our conversations, and the exercises that I did, that these work challenges were holding me back, and until I worked through them, I would have trouble being truly present and thoughtful about shaping my future.
During the coaching journey, Gay was beside me every step (and emotion) along the way, asking me great questions, and helping me to get unstuck. She gave thoughtful assignments, and encouragement, and working with her was a big motivator to create and stick to some specific goals. I found that I held myself accountable much more knowing that there was someone to check in with.
In the end, Gay didn’t magically change my life, as no coach can…but she played a critical part in my journey to refresh my perspectives, goals, and energy. Her patience and thoughtful guidance and support was priceless.
I would absolutely recommend working with Gay.

I approached Gay because I had arrived at a point where I felt stuck in life. After years of moving countries and putting family first, I felt empty and that my life was lacking a purpose. However, I had no clear idea of what it was that I wanted out of life or what would make me feel more fulfilled. I just seemed caught in a fog.
Gay was instrumental in helping me to lift my head above the fog and gain clarity. With her empathetic yet no-nonsense approach, she helped me to rediscover myself. Together, we explored the things that bring me fulfilment and joy.
Gay supported me in setting realistic and achievable goals. She was great at challenging me and holding me accountable whenever she felt that I was slipping back into my comfort zone. At the same time, I never felt judged and I knew that Gay truly cared for my well-being.
Gay is a professional who combines solid coaching training with a background in psychology and a healthy dose of life experience. I feel that I have gained so much clarity and a sense of purpose as a result of working with Gay.
I highly recommend her to any woman who is at a crossroads in life and feeling a little lost, whether personally, professionally, or both.
I have been lucky to benefit twice from Gay's coaching. In our first engagement I was struggling with trying to have it all or managing it all (family, work, me) and the toll is was taking on myself. For our second engagement, I was leaving a company after a very long tenure and I want guidance to leave strong and feel at peace with my decision and start my new role strongly. I wanted to do things on my terms.
Gay listened, gave me space to say all the things I hadn't made space for. She provided insights, exercises, appropriate challenges and advocacy. She believed in me so strongly and helped me piece together my thoughts and feelings to allow me to go from stuck, to grounded, to soaring.
She got to know and see me, the real me and advocated for my authentic self and my aspirations.
Working with Gay changed how I saw myself. We removed the roadblocks and progressed to where to wanted to go and dreamed of going. I become a better and happier mom, partner, and leader.
If you worked with Gay, you would choose her again. I have also recommended her with my network and those people would tell you the same. I would recommend Gay to people open and looking to find something better in themselves and in their life. Whether it be to end a struggle or to take a leap and transform.
I loved working with Gay due to her open and friendly approach. I was able to relate to her use of visual metaphors which helped me to see myself from a completely new perspective.
She is very empathic and helps you without being overwhelming.
I chose coaching with Gay because I felt my life was always busy yet it seemed nothing was being achieved and this was unfulfilling. I sought her guidance, hoping she could steer my life in a new, meaningful direction. I also had issues from the past which often weighed me down.
During our sessions, Gay enabled me to feel comfortable exploring various aspects of my life and identify those which caused me discontent. She helped me develop the ability to observe myself without judgement and understand how I was reacting in various situations. Gay also helped me recognise many positive aspects of my life which I was often blind to.
In conclusion to our sessions, I have developed the ability and confidence to deal with challenges I am faced with. I also feel increased satisfaction in the direction my life is moving in now. Gay did not give me this new direction; instead, she empowered me to set this myself.
I have known Gay to always be a well-informed, supportive person who is able to see situations from different perspectives. She is a warm, open-minded person whose ideas and suggestions I fully respect. She provided me with great support as well as the open door to discuss whatever came to my mind. I strongly recommend Gay to anyone, especially those who wish to find a new direction in life like I have.
