About Me

209pics-0851My name is Susan Gilbert. I am a Life Long Learner and Educator, who has  lived in Upstate New York all my life. As a Retired Public School Elementary Teacher with over 30 years of experience, I have helped children, parents and colleagues set goals and develop their strengths. It is still   rewarding to use many of these same skills to make a difference in people’s lives.

I am a certified Life Coach through the Life Coach Institute, which was founded on 38 years of research in the field of personal and professional Life Coaching by Dr. Shad Helmstetter. He is the author of several best seller books including; “What To Say When You Talk To Your Self “.

I have completed a Coaching Program through the Midlife Center for stress, anxiety and depression which was founded by Lucinda Bassett.

I have completed a Certified Herbalist Course through the Natural Solution Training Institute; The ABC+D Approach with Stephen Horne, RH(AHG) a nationally known Natural Healer and Herbalist;  a Natural Health Consultant Certified Mentorship Program with Valerie Greguire, CH, NHC; the Natural Health Education Series 2010 and several other natural health seminars through Nature Sunshine.

The body and mind work in unison with each other, so one can greatly affect the other.  My goal is to help individuals understand how the mind and body  work together so each person can take control of his/her physical and emotional health.

  1. hi i talked with you briefly at the chapin health fair and i was wondering about your experience with alcoholics and depression

  2. Ron,
    It was great meeting you and glad you wrote. I have not had experience with alcoholics and limited amount with depression. Remember that I do not counsel. I am more a guide or facilitator who helps you make changes through goal setting and positive self-talk.

    For depression, I recommend a program through Lucinda Bassett. She deals with stress, anxiety and depression. The program is excellent and very effective. Go to http://www.stresscenter.com There you will find a phone number or you can email a representative who can give you more details. There is a forum where you can talk to others with issues. Also, a great book to start with is, “What To Say When You Talk To Your Self” by Dr. Shad Helmstetter. This book helps us understand and see how we can change our thinking to bring change and positive things into our lives.

    Please let me know if this helps. If you have more questions email me.
    Best to you, Susan
