Stress and pain may be a natural part of a full life – but it doesn’t have to cancel your subscription to your future or your dreams.
I also work with women experiencing anxiety, workplace burnout and issues around high achievement.
After managing my own chronic pain for years, I intimately related to the stress and struggles my clients faced. The things that used to bring me joy started to spark my stress instead. I turned down social invites, stopped cycling, and waited for things to get better – putting my life and happiness on hold for way too long.
Because while the specialists I saw were able to give my physical health attention, my emotional needs remained unseen and unmet.
“This is where you’re needed, Gab.” My inner voice told me. “Not just in the physical, but in the emotional; being the supportive flashlight for others walking the same path with similar struggles and setbacks.”
And so, I’ve come to happily embrace my purpose: Helping women with chronic health conditions, chronic pain, and general life stress to develop their strengths so they could live peaceful, purposeful and productive lives.
In nature, I saw myself and my struggles illuminated clearly. As my boots broke sticks and I stood amidst the birds and the leaves, I felt my burdens lightened and loosened.
The natural world became a place where I went not only to heal, but where I escaped to take a deep breath and explore my wellness.
The natural world, and nature therapy principles inspired my signature counselling program, the Forest Journey and the hike program.
Blending insights from nature with explorative and therapeutic healing techniques, I’ll take you on a journey from waiting and wishing for your dreams, to defining and discovering the path towards your best self and life.
It’s about pausing for a moment of peace and taking a minute to treat yourself with kindness.
