Your Visibility Guide, Paula Gardner


Your guide, Paula Gardner, therapist for business ownersLike you, I’ve experienced the sheer exhilaration of having passion for a business I’ve built up from the ground. That business was my own PR and marketing company which I ran from 2002 until 2016. I’ve had hundreds of business owners going through my PR mentoring programme, and two books published, Get Noticed and Do Your Own PR. I’ve also spoken at conferences around the world on the subject of raising your profile.


However, I’ve also experienced the flipside of raising your profile and building visibility. This included overworking, worrying and feeling the impact on both my creativity and my energy. Like many of my clients, I’ve also had toxic experiences with trolls and people determined to disrupt and disturb.

In the end, I decided to bring in a more psychological approach to help business owners with their mental health as well as their visibility. After a Masters in business psychology, coaching, and qualifying as a psychotherapist I now work with other business owners who want to build their profile, but in a way that supports their wellbeing.


My process to help you get off the visbility treadmill


I have used my own experiences, together with evidence based psychological and therapeutic tools and learning, to create the Scarlet Thinking model. This takes you through:

S – Setting boundaries with others and yourself

C- Calm yourself through tools and techniques that have been proven to work

A – Action the things that are going to make the most difference in the least amount of time

R- Relationships – those that are impacting what’s going on for you and those that can be helpful in future

L – long term influences from the past, and your own legacy: where you do want to go next

E- Environment and how you can change it to support not drain you

T- The plan – A strategy for moving forwards


Finding yourself again


Most business owners fall back in love with their visibility goals after working with me. Some even find their business and life considerably changed by the tweaks they make. My clients feel calmer, more in balanced, more energised and more able to make decisions. What’s more, they see the tangible results in their analytics, profile, enquiries and bottom line.


Working with me


I’m warm but practical. We will laugh, share stories and enjoy our sessions, but the work is the work. I’ll share tools and techniques for you to employ between sessions. We’ll set practical goals that will improve both your visibility and your mental health.
