“She’s kinda like a friendly writer’s therapist, problem solver and mirror on yourself and I highly recommend her.

Dan Smith, TV Director/Writer

Although I didn’t realise at the time, my path to becoming a Lifestyle and Mindset Coach for Writers and Creative Professionals began when I went to an audition for the Ann Summers, Rampant Rabbit Vibrator.

Back in my twenties, my agent had arranged a casting. All I knew what that it was for a commercial…

By the time it sunk in that this was a commercial for a dildo, I was sitting on a sofa, having to fake an orgasm that would convey an element of surprise for women to see the Rampant Rabbit had unexpected results!

As I took the tube home afterwards, I knew I was committed to a creative life, but this wasn’t it.

That’s when I began to explore writing, and later Coaching and suddenly things began to make sense. 

The more we understand the urge within us that wants to achieve something in life, the more we can connect to the necessary courage to achieve our dreams. Here, is where we find ourselves able to produce work that has an impact.

It might be that you have always felt creative, and now feels like the right time to explore that.

Or you’re interested in writing a book to grow your brand or business.

Perhaps, you are looking to reach a place of inner fulfilment, or step free from the voice of the Inner Critic.

Whatever creative urge you’re feeling, I want to help you act on it and allow your unique gifts to set the tone of your life and career.  

I’ve been awarded the Royal Society of Literature V S Pritchett Prize and am published by Virago alongside writers such as Daphne du Maurier and Sarah Waters.

I’ve hosted hundreds of literary events, both in London at City University and the bar at RADA, and at The John Osbourne Arvon Centre. I have spoken on the Creative Writing Masters Programs at Oxford, UEA, Warwick, Birkbeck and Guildford.

I have an MA in Creative Writing, with Distinction, and I’m an accredited Life Coach and NLP Practitioner.

I work with writers and creative professionals, as well as practitioners, artists and entrepreneurs. If you have a current block that you need transforming, a creative project you’d like to see through, a bold career jump or creative business concept, my programs will hold you accountable, maintain your energy levels, clarify your process and strategy, keep you focused, and guide you along the ropes.

If you’re curious as to how I can help you, then why not schedule in for an informal chat?

“I had an hour’s session with Gabriela and I’m still smiling. I found her attentive, and within a very short time she was showing me just how my thinking is keeping me stuck. She’s a great listener as well as empathetic, and compassionate. I appreciated her directness and that she has very clearly done a huge amount of work on herself so she is able to hold the space and keep the focus on the client, a rare gift.”
