With her remarkable background in education and development, Gina has worked with businesses of all sizes throughout the country, and particularly in Balham. Her work has involved helping organisations become teams of highly developed, highly motivated, focused people in order to make the most of the human resources that they have available.
As well as her work with employers in graduate and personnel development, Gina has worked with hundreds of individuals facing career, professional and personal issues. A major part of this work has been in helping people to recognise that they have become workaholic and helping them to put this into perspective and re-focus their lives to achieve the balance that is perfect for them. Gina also works face to face and remotely with graduates seeking to take their early steps on the career ladder, from help in deciding their direction, through CV writing and interview techniques.
Although still based within easy reach of Balham, Gina's work has taken her all over the world and she has a number of books to her credit that are designed to help people help themselves.

Are you a workaholic?
The end of the summer is upon us and that can mean only one thing for workaholics; with the kids back at school, the holidays over, nothing stands in your way of non-stop round-the-clock work until the next school or public holiday - Christmas.
According to a recent US study, working more than 50 hours a week can make you a workaholic and this can seriously damage your mental and physical health and well-being.
The study found that workaholics were more likely to have reduced physical well-being, measured by skipped meals, along with reduced mental well-being as measured by a self-reported depression score.
Researcher Sarah Asebedo, of Kansas State University, who conducted the survey, concedes that some workaholics already know, but for reasons personal or financial don’t know what to do about it: “Even if you understand the negative consequences of workaholism, you may still be likely to continue working because the cost of not doing so becomes greater.
“Sometimes you find people don’t like what they are doing and they want to make a change, yet financially they don’t know how they can accomplish that.”
If you think you could be or are a workaholic - I can help you readdress the balance in your life by holding a mirror up to you and all aspects of your life and allowing you to listen to yourself to see where to changes need to be made, and then I can help you put those changes in to practise.
I will help you work through problems such as decisions about your career path, improving your confidence, assessing your personal motivation and improving your self-esteem using techniques such as problem solving skills, time management, and differentiating between urgent and important issues.
My methods with workaholics have helped many people to put their lives in perspective and establish, then maintain, a more reasonable work life balance. Achieve more by doing less!
