Specialising in Leadership Coaching and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
What I do?
Gillian Forrester Coaching offers a unique one to one coaching experience,
Combining expertise and experience as a current high-performing stategic leader, I am able to support professionals with unique coaching conversations, empowering people to realise their goals and ambitions.
I specialise in providing transformational mentoring and coaching programmes. I am also a fully qualified Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) practitioner.
As a qualified EFT practitioner I help people gain clarity on why they don’t seem to be able to move forward with their goals, so they can realise their ambitions, removing limiting beliefs and self-doubt holding people back from moving forward with confidence.
I help people to easily navigate the path of modern day leadership, management or business, and thrive in their careers. Helping people to regain their power.
I work with both emerging and experienced managers and senior leaders, and ordinary people who have perhaps lost their way, and need someone to get them back onto the path of success and peace after life events have knocked them off course.
People who just want to feel content, happy and fulfilled in their lives.
“I give people clarity through effective mentoring and coaching.
Empowerment starts with clarity, when we give people clarity,
we give them a gift”,
Supporting you to be the best version of yourself and to achieve your ambitious goals.
“The essential habit of seeking clarity helps high performers keep engaged, growing and fulfilled over the long haul”.

I help people perform as effective leaders, managing high performing teams and delivering great results.
Sometimes you just need someone to guide you to make the right choices, set new goals and support you to take those first steps into the next chapter of your life.
As an experienced and current leader myself, I can offer you a programme of mentoring or coaching to help you transform your life into one of more effective leadership.
As a fully accredited Chartered Manager I have demonstrated my own ability to operate at the highest levels of leadership and can support you to reach those levels of performance too. I am still leading a highly successful organisation so can relate to the day to day struggles and dilemmas you face as a modern day professional.
I will also guide you to consider a better work life balance, and a new appreciation of your current life.
Whether you are wanting to excel at work in a leadership role or you just want to get that work life balance back, and get back to enjoying both work and your family time, then working with a coach will help you achieve your goals more quickly.
I can help you to take the right path to success.
I also specialise in supporting people when things are not going so well in life. Too often life can send us events which challenge us.
It is estimated that 75% of people suffer with feelings of overwhelm or lack of self-worth at some time in their lives.
Too many people suffer from stress, anxiety and complete overwhelm as we seek to achieve ridiculous expectations. But you can do something about that – you don’t need to suffer in silience or be alone.
I help people to deal with lack of confidence issues, low self-esteem and self worth, identifying limiting beliefs and self-sabotage behaviours – I can help you identify what is holding you back, and hel you find resources and people to help you along your journey.
Helping you to be compassionate to yourself.
Get rid of those limiting beliefs which stop you from moving forward and keep you stuck.
As an accredited EFT practitioner, I can integrate the use of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT – also known as TAPPING) into my work to help you overcome the more difficult emotions which often hold us back as professionals. EFT can release you from limiting fears and emotions. It has also been proven to make us sharper and help us to make better decisions.
When we have clarity, we see new possibilities.
When we feel confident
Everything becomes easier.

are looking for:
Re-emerging from lockdown I was keen to get out and about in a real-world setting and talk to others experiencing high levels of stress. Gillian’s course was an unexpected find and offered far more valuable insight than I was expecting.
There is a wealth of information and wisdom packed into the six weeks, much of which I am still digesting! The “killer content/app” in it is the introduction to Emotional Freedom Tapping which I had not come across before but has been a game changer.
In a very short space of time, I am much more aware of my feelings, actions and intentions and have started to see very positive results. I have raised energy, I have better relationships, more joy and I am making conscious decisions to do more of what I love in my life. Highly recommended.
When I first signed up to receive leadership mentoring, I really didn’t know exactly what to expect. The matching process was quite simple, and I knew the first time I met Gillian that she was going to help and guide me through the next step in my career.
The mentoring sessions really helped my focus on what I wanted, with Gillian providing some clear guidance, exercises and tools to help me find clarity. Each step was logical, insightful, and although not all of them suited, it was worth the trial and improvement process to find those that worked for me as an individual.
Since we started, I have made giant steps to get to where I want to be. It gave me confidence to believe in myself, deal with everything going on around me, whilst staying on track. I now feel more in control of what I want than I ever have done before.
Thanks, Gillian, for all your support. It’s been invaluable and I hope I can continue to thrive using the new tools and techniques I have picked up over the last few months.
I was feeling overwhelmed and suffering with limiting beliefs which were impacting on my success.
I decided to seek out a mentor who could guide me to greater success. I was fortunate enough to be allocated Gillian, who not only provided me with valuable advice, helped me develop new skills and manage some difficult and challenging situations, she provided great support and guidance on my personal development.
Under Gillian’s guidance, I developed skills to manage expectations on myself and others, and set realistic, challenging outcomes. With her mentoring, I was able to become a more effective leader and her guidance with ETF has been a game changer for me personally. I feel positive about myself and how I approach (commit) to tasks, I look forward to reaping the rewards in the coming months.
I highly recommend Gillian, for anyone who is willing to invest in their personal and professional
Meeting the coach initially and speaking about my current situation and what I wanted to achieve, convinced me to go ahead with the coaching sessions. Gillian then helped me to:
- Build more confidence in my role as a senior leader
- Address difficult situations head on with clear direction
- Successfully transition into my permanent senior role
I really enjoyed working with Gillian and she has helped me a great deal and I appreciate this.
She is a very engaging coach with clear focus and helping me to achieve my initial goals.
I enrolled on the ‘Tapping’ course having very limited knowledge of what the course entailed and was really pleased I made the decision to do so.
The course was interesting, informative and fun. Gillian was very knowledgeable about EFT and a great coach. We had lots of opportunities to practise our tapping skills, which I found extremely helpful.
I am continuing to practise my tapping skills and find tapping greatly reduces any feelings of anxiety and stress.
I would highly recommend giving EFT (Tapping) a go.
Having spent almost a quarter of a century in the further education sector to date, I was looking for some clarity on what might be next for me both professionally and personally.
Gillian encouraged me to focus on my core values, to maintain a sustained focus on my individual goals, and through those approaches identify what I believed should be the key characteristics of any potential career opportunities. All critical factors that have influenced me since when considering my current role and future career opportunities.
Gillian’s relaxed and very supportive style offered me much needed direction, and it allowed me to see that everything is connected more than I have ever done so previously. I have a renewed purpose, improved outlook, increased confidence and the all-important clarity I was seeking. I would absolutely recommend working with Gillian, it proved to be a transformational experience that has already benefitted me on so many levels already.
Gillian put me at ease within about 10 minutes of our first virtual meeting. Despite being asked probing, and at times challenging questions, I really enjoyed the sessions. Without them I think I would still be stuck thinking I was an imposter in the role I am currently doing.
Thank you very much
Gillian is an inspiring leader and coach. She made me realise that ordinary women can do extraordinary things and gave me the confidence to take on new challenges.
I can personally vouch for Gillian’s coaching abilities; as my boss for over 10 years, she aided my brilliant career by her coaching encouragement and her confidence in my abilities.
A natural coach; she was the best manager I ever had and work was never the same without her. Gillian’s influence inspired me to train as an executive coach, becoming entrenched in people reaching their full potential.
I can highly recommend Gillian as a professional person to work with and support you in your leadership roles or personal life coaching.
