My name is Gail Wicht and I am the creator of Thrive & Shine – Coaching with Gail. I am a Wellness Coach for both the body and the mind.
For years I struggled with joint pains without any specialist being able to help me, as well as acne and eczema, insomnia mixed with sleep walking from anxiety, digestive problems, emotional eating and low self worth. I didn’t like myself much and I didn’t trust myself or my body.
I was determined to sort everything out. I would see women with the most beautiful skin and would dream that one day that would be me. When I started asking questions on how ‘fix myself’ the answers followed. I started to change my lifestyle and gradually all my body issues started to heal. I realised that much like a car, if we give our body the correct fuel and keep it in good running order, we would also function optimally and, as a result, live a happier life.
Through this my passion was born to help others. If I could do it, so could everyone else.
There were some of areas of my life where I still wasn’t happy and I started to emotionally eat and felt depressed. Although I was still eating healthy food I was binging on these foods which actually takes away from their benefits because my mind wasn’t in the right space. I sought out a Life Coach who helped me through this challenge and still gives me guidance to this day should I need.
Since undergoing my own healing journey, I studied nutrition and Health Coaching through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, as well as Life Coaching. I realised how interlinked the mind and the body are, one cannot perform optimally if the other is out of balance.
You are already perfect and your body is already the healer, all you need to do is give it the tools and let it do the work.
My mission is to inspire and motivate you so that you can empower yourself and to know that you can change your mind and your body, and change your life.
