Gisèle McDiarmid is a seasoned health professional who has dedicated her life to the service of others. With more than 30 years of combined professional education, as well as both career and personal experience, she brings tremendous value to every coaching session. Working with Gisèle, her clients feel well-supported, compassionately and expertly guided, as well as hopeful again for a better future.

Her career began as a Registered Nurse specializing in Neurology, in Canada and the USA, and an Acting Nurse-Manager in Medicine. She worked in Neurosurgery at the Montréal General Hospital in Québec, and in Neurorehabilitation at the Shepherd Center for Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries in Atlanta, Georgia.

 

Focused on her patient as a 'whole' person on her/his own unique health journey, she respected them as experts in their own lives, nurtured the mutual trust in a good Nurse-patient relationship, and ensured compassionate support and education as well. Following a 12-year career in Nursing, she shifted her focus alongside her husband to raising their active family of four children and caregiving for their aging mothers. During this time she also completed a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology (Cum Laude), followed by an ICF*-recognized dual professional coaching certification in health and life coaching.

After being diagnoses with Fibromyalgia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Gisèle completed certification as an IFCI** Certified Fibromyalgia Advisor®. It helped her feel so much better that she wanted to share these practical tools with everyone! So she became a Certified Fibromyalgia Coach®, under the private expert mentorship of Tami Stackelhouse, CEO and Master Educator at the International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute (IFCI), three times best-selling author, podcaster, and Executive Producer of the 2023 groundbreaking fibromyalgia documentary film, Invisible.

She then learned how to coach people living with MCS and ME/CFS, and has also been successfully coaching individuals with Long-COVID. A believer in Continuing Education who reads the research studies and health & wellness books, she most recently (2023) became certified in Holistic Nutrition Coaching and also a Registered Health Coach with the Health Coach Alliance

 

Her coaching program offers a 'wholistic' experience rooted in evidence-based approaches in Nursing and Psychology, Life and Health Coaching, and Holistic Nutrition. With compassion and a first-hand understanding of her clients' challenges, and even with humour at times, she provides caring guidance through learning the effective self-management tools and strategies that help her clients improve their fibromyalgia, MCS, ME/CFS, and Long-Covid symptoms and open the door to living the lives they dream of.
