Coaching, Training and Therapy for business owners, PR and The Media

 therapy for business owners from Paula Gardner

Coaching and therapy For business owners and individuals in PR and the media




My name is Paula Gardner. Scarlet Thinking brings together my passions – psychology, business and PR, in order to help business owners and those working in PR and the media who may be struggling…or who just want to move up to the next level and beyond.


If you could do with some extra support right now, or you’d like some for your team or a colleague,  I offer:



  • Therapy for business owners

  • Executive coaching

  • Pay as you go EAP therapy for PR and the media

  • Workshops and seminars on mental health and productivity

  • Visibility coaching for business owners


Why work with me?


With over 20 years in PR and the media, and 15 of those as a PR company owner, I understand the pressures and challenges you or your team may be under. There can be incredible highs when you land a new client or a campaign goes smoothly, but there are also many issues to navigate. Working with difficult people or managing clients, for instance. The presure to always be switched on, creative and positive can be draining, not to mention keeping up with how fast the industry is changing – AI anyone? On top of that, our own life issues, from relationship problems to addictions to bereavement, can seriously derrail us. Someone who understands these pressures first-hand offers so much more than a generic coach or therapist.



Likewise, all my trainings are created to address the particular challenges that accompany working within PR and the media. I have created workshops that range from mental health to how to communicate better with your colleagues. You can find out more here



You don’t need to carry on feeling as you do, or watch a team member struggling.  If you’d like to book a therapy or coaching session yourself, you can go ahead and book in a session here.



Alternatively, would you like to discuss what might be best for you or your team, or find out more about workshops? Book a no-obligation chat with me here or contact me here
