Hi! I’m Gill. I share no BS ways to love yourself on YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and my podcast Gill Chats.
I was born and raised in Melbourne Australia. My parents met in the theatre and I was immersed in it from day one. Watching my dad write, direct & act. Anything from drama, to Shakespeare, to sketch comedy. I remember watching the actors rehearse, perform & learn lines. My dad was a perfectionist & if you were in one of his shows you had to be prepared to work. I would hangout backstage knowing that one day it would be my turn.
I pursued my passions for a little while but it started to become difficult in my 20s. Some failed auditions. Not knowing where I was headed or if it was even possible.
I got sick of singing at weddings. Nothing was falling in my lap. The dream got further and further away.
I gave up....
I stuffed myself into a corporate box working 9-5 and tried desperately to find a boyfriend (needy AF) to outsource my happiness, drinking, toxic relationships .... I tried everything you shouldn’t to find some excitement and contentedness in my life. I hit rock bottom and was desperate to try anything that would get my ass off the ground to feel something other than the pain from utter boredom & perpetual heartbreak.
Enter self love inner work stage left!
My whole life changed. I built my confidence, I re-discovered my skills and found my purpose.
It took a lot of mental work and I am still working! But the rewards are so worth it. It is my mission to share it with as many people as possible. If I can change, anyone can!
I share so much of this journey on my podcast. Check out Gill Chats to hear literally everything.
