Show Notes

Today’s chat is with Gabrielle, who specialises in freeing people of overthinking and worry to live life with more ease and joy. In this interview, Gabrielle gives us some concrete strategies to overcome the kind of overthinking that creative business owners are prone to, and reminds us to be kind to ourselves and remember that overthinking is normal. She also shares her own story and her experiences of choosing to get more visible this year in her coaching and training for overthinkers.

Sometimes you just face up to the thing that you’re worried about, and look it right in the face, and say “ok, what is this thing that I cannot get out of my head that is making me feel anxious and I’m overthinking?” Look at it and say “ok, that is scary”, and give yourself compassion.
