Meet Gill


Gill is originally from Somerset, but having moved in early 2021 during the pandemic from Weybridge, Surrey now lives in East Devon. In her early career she travelled the world working for various airlines, including the groundbreaking Laker Airways.


Not content with just travelling around the world Gill also trained in the early 1980's to be a sound recording engineer with the then Gateway Studios in London.  She engineered both live performances (including Rick Wakeman, Petula Clark and George Melly) and recordings in the studio. Little did she know how useful this would be many years later when starting her own podcast GillHB & Friends available on all major platforms

On leaving the airline industry she moved to Derbyshire. It was at this point Gill studied for an honours degree in psychology with the Open University. After graduating she worked for a period of time as a psychology lecturer. She also worked as a freelance sound engineer for BBC Radio Derby on their outside broadcasts. 

In the late 1990's, having moved to Surrey with her husband and son, Gill returned to the airline industry in an operational senior management position. In 2003 she decided to leave the corporate world and work for herself.

Gill gained an Advanced Diploma in Life Coaching and so started a new career. She then went on to become a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) having been trained by Paul McKenna and Dr Richard Bandler, and an Advanced Thought Field Therapist trained by Dr Roger Callahan.

In April 2009 Gill appeared live on America's ABC programme 'The View' having been part of the team to cure Whoopi of her fear of flying.


Gill coaches 1-2-1 with a wide variety of clients who are dedicated to making a change. She can frequently be heard on the radio, seen in the media and has appeared in ITV2's Peter Andre My Life, on the American ABC TV show The View with Whoopi Goldberg and ITV's Kyle's Academy.


Following her diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer Gill wrote a book about the somewhat unusual approach she took to take some control over her outcome - including the help of characters from the Bing Crosby film White Christmas - of not hating or wanting to kill her cancer. She published her second book in 2015 (no longer available), "Beliefs, Bing & Me. The Active Role I Took to Tackle Cancer".

Podcast - 'GillHB & Friends' 

      When Gill was in her teens she always wanted to be a TV or radio presenter so she could interview people - a pipe dream, when things like: home computers, the internet, YouTube and podcasts were unheard of!

With the arrival of podcasts and a chat with a friend, who is a presenter, suggesting she'd be good at talking to people she decided to start her own podcast. It also meant that she could update her sound recording engineering skills from 'reel to reel' to 'digital' as well as chatting to people to find out about what lead them to where they are. GillHB & Friends was born.Available to listen to on all major platforms and HERE
