ABOUT

Hi I'm Gill and I'm a coach, mentor and consultant. In 2016, I left a corporate career of 20 years to pursue a life that is more aligned to my sense of creativity and intuition. I was a successful management consultant working with global corporations including IBM and PwC. I worked with the UK Government to strategise more efficient ways of working and on several climate and energy projects. I became an expert in developing digital platforms to use AI technologies in the workplace.

 

After 2016, I realised that my dynamic, corporate career did not allow space for me to develop all aspects of myself. I wanted to be more in connection with spirituality, body-centred practices and artistic expression. Then began a six year exploration in which I have become qualified as a yoga teacher, healing practitioner and integral coach.

This shift in career focus illustrates the multi-dimensional perspective that I bring to my work. On one hand, I have a capacity to work with corporate and large-scale clients, providing strategy and growth consulting on multi-million pound projects. On the other, I am deeply invested in the protection of the natural environment and in a deepening understanding of human consciousness: I am researching a PhD in new paradigms for ecological consciousness in the 21st century* and I work as a healing practitioner in family constellations and European indigenous shamanism.

I have found ventures that synthesise this holistic approach. I have worked with Catalysers, an organisation that leads conversations with business and industry leaders to accelerate action on climate change. I have been a governor on the board of Kingston University, working with the leadership team to develop KU’s Sustainability Plan in response to the climate emergency. I founded YouthPoweringEarth2060, a UK-India collaboration to give young people the platform to create a vision for the future. And finally, my consulting, strategic and healing skills come together in my integral coaching practice.

I offer integral coaching to anyone who is seeking to deepen their self-understanding, make decisions from a place of intuition and make change in their workplace and industry. I look forward to speaking with you.
