What the world needs right now is more women in their power, believing they have something worth contributing,
and the confidence to lead the way.
Over and over in my work I see incredible, talented, wise women, longing to step into service and offer their gifts, who feel unable to do so because of paralysing self doubt, imposter syndrome, and a belief that they are not good enough.
My mission is to support women to empower themselves, and each other, to realise that they are good enough, and that what they have to offer is exactly what the world needs.
If you recognise yourself in this, then you’re in the right place.
The power of this training is to help you realise that self doubt and imposter syndrome is normal, and in fact, most of the women who join, are here because they feel it too.
This work helps you to strengthen the ability to hold yourself in that fear, and to coach you through it, so that you can find the confidence to feel the fear and do it anyway.
Ready to take the plunge?
"A life-changing 12 week course that pushes you to meet yourself and opens doors to what you can offer to the world...
Gaia allows people to find depth in this work, it's implicit in how she conducts the training but also very simply resides in her unique energy and essence."
