After more than 20 years working in Higher Education, doing my own PhD, supervising thousands of undergraduates, hundreds of Masters students and being on the teams of dozens of doctoral students (I currently have eight of my ‘own’ supervisions in the university I work part-time at), I’ve seen the challenges students face.
Whilst the work is hard, I strongly believe that the process of doing a doctorate does not have to be as hard as it is made to be.
I don’t think we should be ‘breaking’ people as they do their doctorate.
I believe in building people up through supportive challenge and encouragement.
That is why I’m here - to support and challenge you to get the best possible outcome from your doctoral study. And there isn't a better time than NOW to make progress with it!
So I’ve created this package to give you a huge boost. Read on >>>

From Stressed to Submitted: the course
Special one-time offer, 50% OFF when you book your Get Progress! Intensive
This course takes you through the framework we use in my mentoring, to create the 'big picture' of what you are aiming for in writing your thesis. It sits really well alongside the work we will do 1:1 - and I'm offering it to you for HALF PRICE. But only if you act now!
All personal information you submit is encrypted and secure.
In 6 months, we can get to know each other well, build productive routines and create a strong progress path for you.
You will have clarity FROM DAY ONE on what your next step is and where you are going with your doctorate
Six months is normally long enough to move people who are in the write-up stage (data collected) from "???????" to being ready to submit, but we can extend the package if necessary at the end of our time (at additional cost).
Opening review of your progress so far
Real, eyes-open honesty is needed here! But you'll be glad you've taken this step, and it will get us started the right way.
Regular planning reviews as part of our calls, so you always know exactly what you are working on.
Bi-weekly 1:1 call with Gina
We meet once every two weeks on a video call. This gap works well to keep you on track, but ensure accountabilty and counteract isolation. It gives you enough time to work on the next step between calls so you have something to 'report' each time we meet.
Reviews of your work
As we work together, you will be writing lots - parts of chapters, papers, reviews, whatever you are working on. I'll review them and give you my feedback and we can discuss them in our calls. I'm not your supervisor, and their feedback is ultimately what matters, but when you present them with more fully worked-up and polished drafts, they'll bve very happy with you.
Voxer access between calls
I use Voxer, which is a walkie-talkie style app where you can leave voice or text messages for me to respond to, between our calls. You will never be left on your own with your challenges - effectively, Voxer access gives you me 'in your pocket' at times that suit us both [fair use limits apply - we both have lives!]. Whenever you have a quick question that can't wait until the next call, or you want to talk something out, vox me. It's suprisingly effective and efficient.
Invitation to the Doctoral Success Circle
The community for doctoral students. Each week we have multiple opportunities to meet up - for CoWorking, training and catch-ups. The Circle creates the community so many doctoral candidates feel they are missing (membership is also available separately).
What others are saying:
"Gina really understands her students and the work they are doing and what is required"
Post Grad student
"The innovative way Gina overdelivers value by non-traditional academic support, took me to the next level of my potential, something I didn't know it even existed!
Clarity is power! And Gina is the person who will walk by your side, flashing the light for you so you find your unique direction!"
"Working with Gina is easy and fun as she is encouraging but realistic. It is a secret superpower to have Gina on your side!"
