Writer & Mentor for Women on the Soul Path
Gemma is a writer & mentor who specialises in the soul’s journey, helping people make meaning from life’s transitions, challenges and opportunities. She has worked successfully with individuals and couples for three decades, always bringing to her clients the most integrated, well-researched and empowering approaches to human change.
Gemma is a highly skilled facilitator who aligns herself with her client’s own intuitive intelligence and inner wisdom to find answers quickly. By helping people connect with their own soul-guidance, she’s able to help them find satisfying personal answers, practical solutions and spiritual growth.
CURRENT FOCUS: After considerable soul-searching, Gemma closed her busy private practice as a psychotherapist and no longer works psychotherapeutically with individuals or couples. She now offers mentoring sessions to women via Skype or Zoom. These sessions are for women committed to their own spiritual development, higher purpose and creative expression.
***Practice Update*** I currently have a few spots available in my women’s mentoring practice and am open to new clients. Contact me if you’re interested in working with me.
BOOKS/WRITING: In 2002, Gemma published How to Get What You Want Without Losing It: A Woman’s Guide to Conflict Resolution (Random House). This practical guide has recently been undated and is now available under title, Resolving Your Conflicts with Power and Grace. In 2003-4, she wrote the weekly “Coaching Column” for The Age, one of Australian’s leading newspapers. In August 2016, Blue Angel Publishing released her Soulful Woman Guidance Cards, co-authored with Shushann Movsessian. Gemma has also published a book on meditation for women called Meditate With Goddesses: A Guide to Healing and Awakening for Women.
TRAINING/EDUCATION: During the 1990s, Gemma lived in the United States where she successfully completed a Ph.D. in Social Psychology. She is also a certified coach from the Coaches Training Institute, a qualified psychotherapist in Process Oriented Psychology and Somatic Psychotherapy, and a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. With a wealth of training and experience, she embraces a holistic, modern and well-researched approach to all her work.
WORKPLACE COACHING: In addition to her private practice consultancy, Gemma has worked for government departments as a communication coach, workplace trainer and senior management development facilitator.
RETREATS: More recently, Gemma began offering women’s retreats in Bali and Australia, focusing on women’s self-care, soul-life and spirituality. In 2010, she co-created the popular Facebook Page, The Soulful Woman. This distinctive, high-quality and original page had over 1.6 million followers worldwide. After a successful run of 8 years, this page has now closed.
SPEAKING: Gemma speaks on a variety of topics including compassionate conflict resolution, menopause as spiritual awakening, creating highly-conscious relationships, meditating with the divine feminine, spiritual empowerment during the dark night of the soul, and unleashing your soul magic through aligning with your higher purpose.
SOUL JOURNEYS: Gemma has made it a core part of her life to visit mystical power sites around the world. These include stone circles and ancient Celtic sites in the UK, shamanic tribes in the Peruvian Amazon, ancient Mayan temples in Mexico, holy sites in Bali, sacred sites in Southern France, as well as sacred spots in Australia.
