Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling and Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental and emotional challenges. Psychotherapy can help understand, eliminate or manage troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being, contentment and healing.
All therapy sessions are person centred and tailored to your needs. In a holistic therapy session you may experience a combination of the therapeutic modalities that I have been trained in, including talking therapy as well as energy work. I will use my intuition to guide me to support your personal healing, growth and evolution.
DECU / OMcodes
Are you ready to take a journey that awakens your cells? Are you ready to reprogram your body to hold a higher consciousness and hold the frequency of health, vitality and well-being? This modality will change your life. Clearing old programs and belief-systems, stepping into the expression of who you truly are.
Evolution Card Coder Readings
This is a card reading like no other. You will receive a personalised coding with the energy of the frequency pattern as the reading unfolds. The frequency of the numbers and the design of the cards codes an energetic pattern activating on a cellular level supporting you to step into your highest potential of your future pattern.
Grief Groups and Group workshops
I run Half-Day workshops as well as 6 week workshops.
Gabriela has been my mentor for a six week DECU Certification class. Every moment spent with her is warm, peaceful, sacred and a deeply felt learning experience. She is kind, thoughtful, highly intuitive, soft spoken, clear and direct. Her loving heart and faith are reflected in every word and action.
One of Gabriela's many gifts in service to humanity, is to gently pinpoint and meet you exactly where you are at in your experience of life and of skills being learned and practiced.
Utilising any modality, she guides with confidence and you are assured to land safely and well prepared for your next level of personal and spiritual growth.

The past 6 / 7 months since our sessions ended have been an absolute whirlwind of things I never thought would happen, in a good way.
The tools you taught me during our sessions have helped me work through so many barriers of fear and unnecessary doubt, most importantly with me and so much inaction. While I still struggle with it, I went from struggling to stay consistent with my yoga, because I was pressuring myself to do it daily, to now consistently going to a class 1 time a week, and if the class isn't on, I still use that time to practice.
I went from no exercise to finding myself entering into a running event (something I'd wanted to do for over 10 years but never having the courage to do it, and do it alone). I completed the running event in May, I'm now planning my next one to enter.
I found a workout plan that is simple and effective for me and I am being consistent with prioritizing doing it, no longer punishing myself with negative self talk for putting my health first.
I repeat to myself daily "my health is my wealth" and I make the intention to thank myself when I am struggling, because I am doing my very best all the time and I need to acknowledge and recognize that so I'm doing it more often, and without needing prompt from myself.. like it's almost become a habit. Almost!
I also stepped way out of my comfort zone and organized a fundraiser for the school, something I've never done in my life, but I wanted to give to the school. It went really well and I am very proud of myself for doing it. I've really begun to just not hold back and do the things I think would be cool to do but usually too nervous to take lead. Doing the fundraiser made me see that it's not that scary to do the stuff, because what have I got to lose?
I'm feeling more confident in me and therefore caring less on opinions of others too. That used to affect me a lot with social situations. It was so exhausting, I rather use my energy the way I have been lately.
I also have no idea if this happening is relevant either, but 2 weeks ago a old friendship healed in the form of my old best friend from high school reaching out. We had a falling out nearly 13 years ago and a pretty nasty one too. We had not spoken since. On my own throughout the years I grew and forgave myself and the person she was back then, and just accepted that although we were besties once, we aren't friends now.. but still cherish the good parts of the friendship etc. Well she reached out, and I was in such shock for a few days , but now 2 weeks on, it's such a weight off my soul to know we have both grown and forgiven, we both cherish our friendship still, the best part is being able to now share parts of my life with her again that I know she would get or laugh at. When a random memory pops up I can now message like "omg do you remember so and so?"
I never thought that was possible.
So all in all I am becoming more unapologetically me, I really am free, free to be me.
I still have a long way on my journey but thank you very much for all you taught and gave me, because I don't think I'd be living the same life right now otherwise.
Thank you so very much.
It was nice to finally talk to someone who works with holistic approach and provides guidance to do the work to get better, instead of offering medication at the minimal opportunity.
Attending sessions with Gabriela has helped me achieve my goals. Thank you Gabriela.
Due to nine months of stress, I had lost interest in my main job and become unmotivated to work on my private business. I had one DECU session with Gabriela to shift the thing that was holding me back from work that I have previously loved. It is a month since my session with Gabriela. I have run 8 workshops and have two more in the planning/organising stages… the interesting thing is that most of these workshops have come into my work life with very little input from me. It is as if the thing that was holding me back has indeed shifted, allowing everything to flow around me. This in turn has me feeling energised and I’ve found my mojo in both of my jobs. Thank you Gabriela x

I first met Gabriela when I was at the lowest point I had ever been in my life and I will always be grateful for the help she gave me. I worked with Gabriela for approximately a year but then I moved away. Life had always been difficult for me, I had grown up with numerous “issues” which I had tried to address with counselling in the past. In therapy with Gabriela, it all came together for me. Suddenly I had a person who helped me to make sense of things. I started to trust and felt safe, so much so, that I was able to completely open up to her and, for the first time, discuss my innermost issues. Gabriela guided me to develop strategies for when my life was difficult and I was struggling and, boy, for the first time I was finding I could cope. My thought patterns began to change and this was an incredible achievement for me. After not seeing each other for a number of years we have connected up again and Gabriela introduced me to the DECU process. At first I was very sceptical but discovered, after a couple of sessions, how beneficial I was finding it and am enjoying incorporating its teaching into my life. From six years ago my life has turned around, I feel in control and when challenges come, which they do, I have the strength and skills to overcome them. Thank you Gabriela from the bottom of my heart.
I have had the honor of multiple DECU and OMCode sessions with Gabriela over the past few months.
Each time she creates a sacred space to connect with and support me during this powerful healing work.
As a spiritual being who is waking up, I learned that we don't need to experience all the pain and trauma of stuck energy to release it. As a highly skilled, intuitive practitioner, Gabriela has an exceptional ability to trace energy, identify patterns, and share information that is relevant, accurate, and usable to support my evolution and growth!
I have left each session feeling lighter, freer, and able to embody the gifts.
If you desire guidance, nurturing, healing, and/or reminders of who you are on your journey through this exceptional lifetime, Gabriela will hold a high vibrational container to remind you of the beautiful divine being you are with your own unique spark.
In collaboration with the Divine, Gabriela empowers her clients to raise their vibration.
If you are ready to be who you came to be, Gabriela is a perfect choice for change!!!!

I highly recommend Gabriela as a counsellor and therapist. She was the first person who I felt truly listened to what I was going through and understood the connection between what I was going through now and trauma from my early childhood. She got right into the heart and soul of what was causing my struggles now, and has helped me deal with them. She has also given me tools for me to use going forwards.
I always feel lighter and refreshed once I have finished talking with her. I really have found her amazing.
