Helping You Find & Forge Your Own Path

What life coaching can do for you:

Coaching is solution-focussed: see new possibilities, get clarity, set compelling goals, get creative in achieving them by being accountable for your progress. Get to where you want to be faster and more easily, with better approaches – a unique advantage in a competitive, dog-eat-dog world

If you had someone experienced, knowledgeable and skilled in your corner, who has your best interests at heart, whose belief in you never wavered, who was infinitely patient, yet pushed you when you needed it, who helped you tap into your unique skills and talents, how much more could you achieve?

Let me walk your journey to success with you.

More money:

Manage your money better to feel more secure and create new ways of earning more to feel successful.

More of life:

Improve the quality of your life, use what works and get rid of the rest, be inspired by life again, feel joy and fulfilment every day

Faster development:

Learn something new, flow with change, resolve your blocks, double your growth rate and attract opportunities which predict your success.

Better decisions:

Your coach as sounding board, feedback and heads upper

Fewer problems:

Raise your standards and extend your boundaries, to have less to put up with

Better health and a more effective routine:

Be inspired to take care of yourself, look better, feel healthier and more attractive, feel less pressured and more relaxed

More available to yourself and others:

Be comfortable with yourself and feel that relief, be loved and wanted, proud of yourself and a model for others, be yourself and anything is possible

58. Relationships run by ego mind

As long as the Ego runs your life, your thoughts, emotions, and actions arise from desire and fear. In relationship, you then either want or fear something from the other. All suffering is born of desire. True love is never frustrated. What can be frustrated is the...

About Me and My Coaching

About me

I am a little different from everyone else and life is a bit different for me. I have to find my own way around obstacles that for other people aren’t obstacles at all. Very few of them knew anything about my struggles since I am able to hide my disability – for the most part.

People and their life paths have always fascinated me. Where I could not ask questions, I became good at picking up what I wanted to know through non-verbal cues.

At varsity, I planned to do my Masters in telepathy. My favourite lecturer wanted to be my study promoter but supporting something like this would cost him his job.

I planned to study further at a Parapsychology institute in Switzerland and was all set, when a clear voice said to me – ‘No – not yet’!

Awed by this direct intervention, I put my dream on hold. I ran a guitar studio, married, raised children, divorced, ran a Reiki practice, married, did indigenous landscaping, divorced, and became a permaculture consultant.

Through it all, my calling stayed constant. I inevitably ended up coaching everyone around me. Not able to change my reality out there by speaking up, I found a different way. I discovered that often, simply by changing my inner attitude, external obstacles dissolved.

Many years later, I finally certified as life coach and here I am. As passionate as ever about what I do, with a bit of life experience under the belt to boot.

 

…and my stutter

I have stuttered all my life.

My stutter is intermittent and situation dependent. I stutter very seldom when I coach for instance.

However, the actual manifestation of the stutter is just the tip of the iceberg. Underneath is the constant fear of stuttering since intermittent stutterers don’t know when it will happen next.

Over 50 years of stuttering, I developed a whole arsenal of adaptive behaviours which enabled me to hide my stutter from the world and sadly, also from myself. This really skewed my personality. The real me was trapped underneath a persona and the result was extreme isolation and loneliness until I finally found the solution…

My Coaching

I partner with you to forge your own path towards goal achievement and life purpose by empowering you to turn obstacles into opportunities so you are free to fly.

My face-to-face or online video coaching programme consists of 13 sessions, each around 75 minutes long, over 6 months. I coach in English, Afrikaans and German.

Fees

I believe in fair exchange of energy. The sessions are 75 – 90 minutes long and the behind-the-scenes work takes me  another 90 minutes per session. In other words, 3 hours of my time goes into each of our sessions. Pay me per hour what you earn per hour.

 

Testimonials

I have learnt an incredible amount over the last six months. It was all well worth the time, effort and money. You taught me to think the way I want to think. The session on rules was especially valuable to me. I wrote new rules  for feeling happy, content and authentic and it works! Your creativity is a 10/10! I love how you like solving problems outside the box. The ‘aha!’ moments with you were wonderful! To be accountable to someone, is very important. Without the action steps, I would have stagnated. Your stutter (which really is minimal!) reminded me that you are also only human. Your sharing your own struggles strengthened our mutual respect and confidentiality.

I know that personal development can be uncomfortable and exhausting, but I am already recommending it to all my friends. Many many thanks Gaby

– Yolandi

What an amazing, inspirational few months these were! Although only a small part of my ‘Operation Transformation’, it was an absolutely crucial part that I could not have gone without. From initially being unable even to identify my emotions, I am now using them to learn more about myself.

My journey was one of accepting who I am and improving on myself. With the action steps and milestones to help me along the way, I was never lost or demotivated.

If you are looking to change or improve, I would highly recommend this program to you.

“Thank you once again for the privilege of doing the course with you – it was really a great learning experience which taught me that I CAN actually reach my goals, and that it is so much easier than one thinks – thanks to you guiding me step-by-step and I realised that I can do much more than what I originally thought I could do – all with the right mindset and by asking the right questions. I am looking forward to integrate that in the rest of my life and setting – and reaching – all my new goals.”

This course was one of the most enriching experiences of my life. I learnt how to stop feeling unsure, hesitant and inferior. I gained the courage and means to dream big, to dare and to do successfully!

The course taught me how to think with an open mind, to look at my life from a different perspective, to set goals, milestones and action steps and eventually… through wrestling with my conscience, also forgiveness, unconditional love and perfect peace!

It definitely was worth the effort!

Over the duration of my life coaching course with Gaby, I’ve learnt a lot about myself. She has helped me to improve many aspects of my life. Her dedication to her clients is truly inspiring and her knowledge of the topic admirable. As clients we need to share a lot of personal feelings, and her professionalism has really made this whole process easier. I’ve always felt that I was in good hands.

                                                                                -Conrad

Gaby inspired and encouraged me to be MORE. She reminded me that I deserve better, that I am a good person and that I don’t need to settle for less. She helped me turn my life around especially emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I have found faith in my future again. I cannot express enough my gratitude for everything. I learned a lot from the coaching sessions and most especially I discovered things about myself – being strong, able to push back, know my limits and self-love. I am empowered.
