Coaching is a comfortable, growth-oriented support. It's about you and what you want for yourself. It can be exciting and empowering; enlightening. It can also be serious and hearfelt and healing. It's your resource and support system when you need that 'extra'. It's about you- it's supposed to provide value for you
Through. Out is about living vibrantly & soulfully- fearlessly! This means finding an aligned, sincere place within yourself- and enjoying the freedom that comes with that. My name is Gillian. Nurturing & uplifting others is where I am at my best. I am trained therapeutically and in life coaching. I graduated from Wits in 2009. Through. Out is a space of safety & acceptance. My job is not to judge or evaluate you. My job is to cut through the noise. I'm a guide. You're still the protagonist to your own power. Privacy is always strictly upheld & your comfort levels with sharing are respected
Honouring yourself is about finding resonance between how you are & who you are- Allowing you to live vibrantly & soulfully- Fearlessly!

Courses & training are another option for these interests. Designed for some level of self reflection as well, but far less personal, and learning takes on a deeper, more objective level, Courses & workshops are available online. Occasionally day workshops are available as well

As your understanding and experience of consciously engaging and monitoring your cognition deepens, so will your skill. The tricks and illusions that your mind plays with you tend to be quite advantageous. Balancing the purpose behind them and maintaining some integrity of reason is really about being conscious.
