Smita is one of the original certified Gabriel Method coach mentors, she also runs a coaching and holistic practice specializing in creating your best possible future and removing blocks to success using a diverse range of therapies.

Smita fully understands many of the fat triggers because she has been on a journey of healing them in her own life having struggled with her weight since her teenage years. Smita grew up lacking confidence and self-esteem as a result of physical and emotional abuse, and also carried protective weight due to an early childhood trauma which contributed to her gaining weight as she looked to find comfort in food. Having explored and trained in a variety of therapies to work through her trauma and break down belief systems, she also became more mindful of her eating habits and has a much healthier approach.
Smita discovered The Gabriel Method In 2009 when a friend suggested she read The Gabriel Method book as a solution to her weight struggles. Smita was amazed and impressed by the impact of the book, especially how the change in mental attitude could increase weight loss. Dedicating herself to visualisation each night, and absorbing as much as she could from the book, Smita was a trim UK size 8 within months and lost a total of 37lbs and 20.5 inches becoming slimmer than she was in her teenage years! The Gabriel Method has been integral in her own healing journey as she’s changed her way of thinking and is now positive and passionate about life with increased self-esteem and confidence.
Reading the book also influenced her career change. Having previously worked as a Marketing Manager for over 10 years since university, she decided to retrain and follow her passion for the health and fitness industry in 2009.
Smita enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience to help others struggling with weight issues. With a natural ability to inspire and empower others combined with everything she’s learnt about achieving an ideal body and personal ambitions, Smita is a great asset to our team of Gabriel Method coaches.

I have had the benefit of receiving coaching with Smita for the past year and a half. During that time she has utilized a variety of holistic approaches to addressing issues that I have presented. I’ve been impressed with the extent of her knowledge and skill at using multiple modalities while demonstrating confidence, insight and keen intuitiveness, sensitivity and compassion. I am so grateful for the insights, healing and growth that I’ve gained through her. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a better understanding of themselves, their behaviours and relationships and for finding avenues to heal and move forward.
Smita Patel and I met two years ago. I adore her and can say with confidence that she is a healer in this world. Smita shines in a variety of ways. She is warm and present with an intuitive sense that makes her stand out. While working with her, I felt listened to, supported, and nurtured. Through this work with Smita, I have been guided to insights that have helped me in moving forward, in feeling a new sense of empowerment, and even have made room for forgiveness. In her professional counseling and healing, Smita uses a variety of modalities which makes her accessible to a myriad of clients. She is lovely, warm, and an old soul, as they say. I am so grateful to have been directed to work with with such a competent and wise woman. I highly recommend her.
I have been working with Smita for quite a while and find it to be a really good experience. Smita is warm, thoughtful and kind; her tapping technique is tremendously helpful, strong and effective in itself, but she also has a very sensitive intuition which helps guide our work. I look forward to our sessions and feel that real change is happening around my attitudes on a very deep level.
