She has recently helped me with some life issues and made a huge difference.

The way we explored the issues together allowed me to get a deeper understanding of it and myself, which then facilitated growth. I struggled for years and within a few months of working with Gemma I began to feel more able to work through things.

In her Facebook group ‘Your human journey’, she poses questions that really get you examining your thoughts and feelings on your personal life journey. Through these she has shown me different ways to view things which is invaluable in my own perspective on life.

I would highly recommend her and her group to anyone wanting to positively question their own life journey, and gain a more intimate knowledge of themselves, thus contributing to a positive life and overall positive life experience. Thank you Gemma 🙂
