    Gab’s advice has always been absolutely on the money. She has a knack for getting to the heart of a matter extremely quickly and accurately with swift and thorough advice and resources that always hits the target. I highly recommend Gab to anyone who feels they need help with a professional or personal relationship matter – even if you can’t put your finger on the problem – because Gab will help you gain the clarity and confidence you need to take the right actions at the right time.

    Whether I need an empathetic ear about what I’m doing in my career, to excellent business advice, to workshopping family dynamics, to strategies for great communication for myself and family I know I’m in the safest of hands with Gabrielle. Her core values are helping women and families thrive. I couldn’t recommend a more trusted, intuitive and skilled coach who can give you the clarity to thrive and flourish both in your career and having a balanced family life.

    I would highly recommend Gabrielle Gleeson services. I was lacking confidence about re-entering the workforce after spending over 16 years at home looking after my family. I was very unsure about how employable I was and whether my skills were still relevant. Gabrielle helped me identify my core strengths and gave me the encouragement and confidence to return to work. As a busy mother herself I loved that she understood the many roles that mothers juggle and helped me deal with the guilt I felt with returning to work. She is incredibly engaging and very matter of fact which I appreciated. She is a wonderful mentor and confidant.

    Gabrielle has a unique way of being able to listen with empathy and understanding to the challenges that come with being a mum and offer practical guidance that has been invaluable with some of my struggles. Her gentle and grounded nature coupled with a clever business mind are the perfect combination for navigating the complicated and (for me) often overwhelming task of balancing career and motherhood.

    A work related issue was really affecting me, at work and home. After engaging Gabrielle’s services I was really empowered about how I could work through this situation. Best of all during the session with Gabrielle a “light bulb” moment gave me an insight that I’ve used ever since.

    Gabrielle has a clear vision in regards to strategy and her skill base is a unique mix of corporate know how and psychological coaching strategies based on both her experience and education. Her input has been invaluable to me personally and has brought fresh ideas to my work as a health professional/ clinician/ researcher and my business of 25 years, allowing me to take it to the next level. I found her no-nonsense compassionate approach to be balanced and motivating and would highly recommend her to others, both male and female.

    I worked with Gab during a period of time where I was struggling with supporting my teenage children as well as starting up a new business venture. As women we try to be everything to everybody. I was in need of systems and better tools to organise my time to effectively manage the increasing challenges, as well as factoring in the incredibly important self time. To be able to talk about fears and be vulnerable when trying to be professional in a start up business and how to factor in time for the children has been so amazing. It has enabled clarity and understanding of the next steps required. Gabrielle has such an extensive knowledge that she draws from. The experience has been truly life changing.

    Gabrielle is an excellent communicator and highly ‘in tune’ with women. She is passionate about helping mothers transition back into meaningful work and inspires confidence and clarity around the right direction to take for each individual. She helps you put strategies in place to achieve work and family balance. Her experience as a working mum, with previous small business and corporate experience, make her an ideal coach. Along with her empathetic nature and a healthy sense of humour, you’ll love working with Gabrielle.

    I’ve known Gabrielle for over a year in this time I have seen first hand how she assists women back into the work force.
    Gabrielle has a natural flair for understanding the needs of women attempting to re-enter the work force after the birth of thier child further more as a working Mum herself Gabrielle has a practicality that women would find reassuring.
    I would highly recommended her services to any woman going through this transition.
