Emma Gilmour


Emma is a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, This Naked Mind and Gray Area Drinking Coach, living in Melbourne, Australia. Emma worked for 20+ years in corporate marketing and ran every morning before work. A working mum fuelled by adrenalin, coffee and booze, she looked like she had it all. But on the inside, she was running on empty. As she reached her mid-forties alcohol started to take more than it was giving and so begun her long and very messy break-up with alcohol. Nothing stuck until her eldest asked her to ‘stop bringing wine into their bedroom’ then it finally landed for her.

Emma started the process of rebuilding herself as an adult, with nurturing care. She discovered her values, stopped drinking, and had to create a whole new identity.

A booze & corporate job-free identity.

Life dramatically improved without booze. She began to discover who she really was, what she liked and what she didn’t like now that booze was no longer her hobby and best friend, she could trust, listen to and follow her intuition!

Kicking the booze to the curb gave Emma a previously unknown level of confidence and personal power to pursue her dreams and become a qualified counsellor and coach.

Still very much a work in progress, Emma is an Aussie based peri-menopausal mum of neuro and gender diverse teens. She loves stand up paddle boarding, ocean swimming and has recently purchased some gorgeous hot pink roller-skates.

The focus of her coaching work is women in midlife curious as to what could open up for them and their families if they took a break from or stopped drinking.
