She is currently working on a new book about polarisation and integration. 

Gill has studied with Jan Mojsa, Jenny Mackewn, Malcolm Parlett, Mary-Jane Rust, Satish Kumar, Stephan Harding, Martin Shaw, David Abram, Mac Macartney and Rebecca Wildbear. She completed a Diploma course in Therapeutic Counselling in 2000, and also has a Coaching Diploma (Distinction), a Diploma in Gestalt in Organisations, and an MSc in Holistic Science.
