“I attended Gabi’s first workshop in January and was at the point of giving up on my long term goal of becoming a freelance coach and wellbeing expert. After attending the second workshop and having a thirty-minute coaching call with G, not only is my dream now alive again, more importantly, I am making progress towards it with concrete actions. This is thanks to Gabija, whose coaching really works. Thanks, Gabija for helping me to keep the dream alive and having fun with it!” – Angelina
