Testimonials

Sobriety coaching is my joy, my love, my passion. Ever since I experienced for myself what it was like to really be free from alcohol, I wanted to help as many women as possible experience the same incredible feelings of joy and liberation. Through my group coaching program, one to one sessions, workbooks and The Virtual Sober retreat, I have had the honor of sharing in the transformation of the women I work with. Here are just a few examples.

“Since working with Gayle I’ve been able to discover in a deeper way the truth about my relationship with alcohol and how it’s impacting my life. Gayle never judges, is always encouraging and holds the space for sobriety in a gentle, loving way. It’s given me the freedom to be mindful rather than having a struggle between drinking/not drinking.

I love the accountability and inspiration, it’s helped me to experience the benefits of sober living and the more I experience it,the more of it I want. Thank you Gayle for helping to open my eyes and see what’s possible.”

“If I’m being honest it’s just hard so it really helped to have something to keep me accountable. I truly don’t think I would have made it a few days let alone 15, not a lot but HUGE for me, had I not done the virtual seven day sober retreat.”

“Through a stroke of luck and/or synchronicity, I came across Gayle and Sober Bliss on the Internet many months ago, when I had been thinking about stopping drinking for a long time but hadn’t managed to do so. I am a woman in her early 60s who drank a bottle of white wine every night, on and off, but mainly on, for 18 years. I subscribed to Gayle’s Sober Bliss newsletter, and then read everything she sent with interest, with a growing sense that Gayle would be a great asset in helping me ditch the booze. When I signed up for her Transform program in April 2020, I was determined to become alcohol-free. It took me 3 more months of working with her before I was successful, but I am now firmly on a sober path, and I truly believe that I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Gayle.

The support on her Transform program has been phenomenal, and includes beautifully produced and useful resources to read and journal about, providing many tips and tools for redefining one’s relationship to alcohol, stopping drinking, and remaining alcohol-free, and invited guests who are expert in a variety of different fields and who share their knowledge and provide more useful tools. One of the most helpful components of the program was the regular personal contact I had with Gayle. We had a live Zoom meeting at least once a week, another live weekly session on the Transform Facebook group, and daily check-in emails.

Despite the 9-hour time difference between us, she was always accessible and available at times that were convenient for me. I have accomplished what I set out to do – finally stop drinking. Gayle was absolutely indispensable in helping me to achieve my goal, and I will be forever grateful to her. I highly recommend that you also take advantage of her wonderful Transform program if you find yourself wondering whether you need to change your relationship with alcohol, or if you know you should stop drinking but have found that to be as difficult as it was for me.”

“I have finished your retreat and found it very useful,  I am happy to say that I haven’t had a drink at all for a week, that hasn’t happened for about a year! The most useful thing was actually speaking to you”

– Anna

“Gayle, you are so lovely!.”, you inspired me! I was scared but because I committed to you I would do it – I have, so thank you xx”

– Rachel

“Gayle helped me recognise how my drinking habits were harming me and made me realise I needed to stop. It was hard at first and I didn’t think I’d be able to do it! But her gentle nurturing approach really made me feel like I could Her supportive coaching style is non-judgemental and non-preachy;

Gayle really understands the challenges that come with stopping drinking. I can honestly say that since giving up my habitual weekend drinking, I feel so much freer and gained more clarity in my business too – an added bonus!”

“Doing the retreat with Gayle has been a really inspiring experience in connecting with myself and my needs and desires which when given space to see with “real-eyes” that it is not alcohol that I desire but connection with self in a loving and tender way- had I not done the retreat I would plough through my day without consideration for self and fallen into the same evening ritual of looking for something outside myself to sooth my discontentment. Thank you Gayle for leading a new way xx”

               – Sarah .C

“I have been working with Gayle for nearly a month now. I started after 10 years of having on off struggles with my relationship with alcohol, which has become toxic over the last year. It has left me feeling exhausted, unappreciated, unloved and honestly… just broken.

I came across Gayle’s posts on facebook and from the moment I received the first enquiry reply, I felt that there was hope. Gayle has given me so much support and her non-judgemental, gentle approach without rules has opened a door to a whole new life for me. Within a month I have started to embrace new habits and a new way of living and through this I am starting to actually see my worth.

Gayle, I cannot wait to see how much further I can go over the next two months of this journey with Soberbliss. Your continuous daily support and the knowledge that you are always there, even though this is online, means the world to me. Thank you for giving me hope!”
