About Me

Gillian Walter Leadership Coach

Gillian Walter-Holt

1969, PCC, ACC, B.ED ( Hons.)

I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) specialising in life coaching and career transitions.  I am the owner of Inside-Out Coaching, a writer, a B.Ed (Hons) teacher and artist. Born and raised in England, I now live in Switzerland with my family and love having two homes, in addition to English, I am fluent in both Swiss- and High German. I have a passion for people from all walks of life, a scarily accurate intuition, a talent for unlocking hidden potential and finding your inner spark. I work with empathy, compassion and humour, but I know exactly when to challenge, motivate and support you to recognise, understand and overcome the stumbling blocks in your life.

I am particularly passionate about working with teams to create dynamic and forward-looking solutions and resources tailored to your team’s specific needs and situation. Get in touch and ask me more about customised workshops, training and group coaching opportunities.

I am a Leadership & Life coach and coach participants during and after Mark McGregor’s paradigm-shifting courses. Combining coaching & training ensures the integration & sustainability of the positive results achieved there. I studied at the University of Westminster, Nottingham Trent University and Le Institute de Coaching (IDC) in Geneva.


“I have had the privilege to be accompanied and supported by Gillian in a decisive and challenging moment of my life and career. I felt “things” needed to change, without me knowing, what those things were. Gillian was there with me on this journey, reassuring me in my intuition, challenging me on my old, unhelpful patterns with humour and understanding, and showing me how to light my own fire in a previously unknown lighthouse, whenever I got lost… Gillian has a unique ability to help you focus on yourself, to make sure you feel safe and courageous. And at the same time, she is there at your side as an authentic person beyond her role as a coach. It has been a great pleasure and a very empowering experience to work with Gillian.”


My Life Journey

I work with clients from all over the world to reach their fullest potential-it’s always greater than they expect! As my client you will get to know yourself inside-out; your values, your vision, your desires, your needs and your life. We work together with this insight for you to realign your inner compass, understand yourself, see the life around you from different perspectives, take full control and become the best and happiest ‘you’ you can possibly be.

Coaching has turned my life around to such an amazing extent that I wanted to learn more about it. Since studying and working as a coach myself, I am blown away daily by the effects coaching has on people; all kinds of people in all kinds of positions & situations:

New managers  Entrepreneurs, Public speakers, Artists , Career transitions, Ex-pats, Scientists, Teachers, CEOS & Leaders, Parents, Trainers, Professional sports people, Retirement,  New challenges,  MBA Students  & many more

What do you get from Coaching that you can’t get from a consultant, mentor or therapist?

  • As your coach, I empower you to get the most out of every aspect of your life. I will be your trusted partner and together we will work with patience, creativity and challenge in order to realise and develop your personal potential, growth, performance and success that you desire on your terms.
  • I will not be ‘the expert’-I will empower you and be your facilitator
  • I will not be a teacher or consultant-I will help you gain clarity through your own experience and learning process
  • I will not give you all the answers-I will encourage you to discover all possible options and find the solutions that work best for you

I will not tell you, “everything’s OK”-I will challenge you to be the absolute best that you want and can be.

What Sets ICF Credentialed Coaches Apart?

Anyone can call themselves a coach. ICF Credentialed Coaches are professional coaches who have met stringent education and experience requirements and have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies that set the standard in the profession.

Achieving credentials through ICF signifies a coach’s commitment to integrity, understanding and mastery of coaching skills and dedication to clients.
