What you need is an entirely different approach
We need to shift the focus from what’s going on in your mind to your body.
Yep – this isn’t about “mindset” or counselling, or “coaching” in the traditional sense. Because we can actually bypass those issues by treating them from the opposite angle.
We’re going to get you the energy, clarity and confidence you need by listening to your body FIRST.
Hello, I'm Gillian and I help creatives, like you to naturally remove the blocks that are keeping your from creating your best work through movement analysis, exploration and reflection.
So you can....
- Stop your mind from racing and calm your scattered thoughts to find that focus.
- Actually create more time (yes, you can do this), and eliminate overwhelm.
- Shut off the negative self-talk and worries that bog down your creative flow.
- Physically generate all the energy you need to make your creative work happen.
- Enjoy the process of creating again.
Your body has lots to say
(but you need to learn to listen).
We start by learning to listen to your body. You’ve been telling your body to shut up and get in line for years (Stop being in pain back! Don’t get tired now eyes! Why are you twitching? Stop it!). But your body has so much to tell you, and when you stop trying to ignore it, and start giving it your full attention, you’ll gain new insights and awareness that will enable you to be more resourceful in your daily life.
I created ‘Move into Balance’ to help creatives like you (and me) to have a successful and enjoyable career and life with your body and mind in balance.
Who am I? I’m a qualified Dance Movement Psychotherapist, mother of three girls, a PhD researcher, and a Performing Arts lecturer and Coach. I totally understand the difficulty of the mind not wanting to shut down and throwing up blocks to creativity – I have been there many times myself.
Through my work I have collaborated with, taught and coached hundreds of creative people to help them focus and create the work that really matters to them and I totally get the creative process and how important it is to you.
When you give your body space to speak – your mind goes quiet!
By listening to your body you can find solutions. By having an awareness and strong connection between your mind and your body you will find that you become more resourceful to deal with whatever life or work throws at you.
You are able to direct your attention and focus easily, which will enable you to be more productive. Furthermore because you are connected you become very aware of what really matters to your inner-self and core and you have clarity in your expression through your creative practice of choice.
You will find strategies that work for you to calm your mind and thought processes, so that you can switch off at the end of the working day and enjoy your life outside of work.
You will feel energised to enjoy your work and your life, at last.
Before working with Gillian I was struggling with feeling grounded and found myself constantly in freeze mode.
Things have changed as a direct result of our sessions – I am so much more grounded and aware of not letting my emotions take over or ignoring them. I am able to deal with life in a clearer and more mature way. I feel a lot more in tune with the world and myself.
My creativity is through the roof! I now have this huge ability to switch off and take quality useful time for myself. My energy levels are high and I am a lot happier as well 🙂
The sessions flow and are beautiful and so insightful. I have learnt so much. Gillian holds space for awareness and growth which is beautiful. I don’t want the sessions to stop!

Move into Balance
1:1 online coaching programme
Calm your mind, find consistent creativity and joyful productivity
Before my time with Gillian I was feeling overwhelmed by work in particular. I had lost perspective of work and my own priorities. I was overworked, exhausted and chronically stressed.
Through the ‘Move into Balance’ programme I have managed to create boundaries for myself. I now feel more in control of work demands and am managing my workload and deadlines realistically. I have learned to set priorities and to get out of my headspace and connect to my body, which has made me feel much more centred, balanced and in the flow during a usual workday.
I am now actively integrating techniques to get me into the right mindset at the start of the day.
And I have more kindness towards myself.
Thank you, Gillian, you have helped me look at old habits with perspective, and introduced new techniques that help me get out of my head and work with my body to find the right flow and working style for me.
Before working with Gillian I often struggled with overwhelm, exhaustion, creative burnout and I needed help to find my work-life-creativity-self-care balance.
Through the ‘Move into Balance’ programme I’ve come to understand how I work and what my ‘happy pace’ is. I have integrated several aspects that directly emerged from our work together.
I’ve integrated many ideas found in session, into my working processes which has given me a much steadier flow of energy, and I’m not exhausted after. It’s a much more sustainable way to work and it feels so much better.
I have made changes to my business practical operations,as a result of the programme and I’ve become much more productive and so much less stressed and exhausted.
