Finding your strengths is easy...

But...As women, we are quick to find faults with ourselves.

For some bizarre reason, our unique strengths are so close, so ingrained we take them for granted.

What if we could leverage our greatest strengths to squash our stress triggers and bring calm back to our lives.

And that's exactly what this course will do…

A Bit About Me


I spent most of my life being a people-pleasing, perfectionist and control freak.

This led to 10 years of chronic back pain, a lot of tears and being a frustrated angry mum. Not once did I consider it was due to stress.

Finally stepping away from the rat race I retrained as a Strengths Coach. I quickly discovered using my strengths every day significantly impacted the way I would think, feel and act.

The stress (and pain) melted away.

Honestly... I became a nicer person.

Knowing how destructive stress can be to families, I now help women around the world discover their unique strengths so they too can find the balance between stressing less and achieving more.

I did it… So can you

What others say about me

Here are just a few of the women who have been through the workshops


It was the best impromptu decision I had made because coaching under Gemma (as cliched as it may sound) changed my life!

Kala Perry


Absolutely brilliant, I have utterly loved getting to understand my strengths and how I can thrive. Gemma has a fantastic ability to bring out the best in you. I would recommend to anyone wholeheartedly. Do it!!

Hermione Warman


I began to find that day to day challenges, small or large, no longer seemed insurmountable. I am able to hone in on my strengths to have control over how I choose to tackle challenges/projects. As a relationship person I also wish I had known about strength training earlier in life!

Mary Prothero


Realizing that my greatest strengths can oftentimes also be triggers to stress was a game-changer.

It's so useful when you see it come to life at home and in the workplace. Really looking forward to the next session...

I used to have a lot of burn out at home and I couldn’t figure out why. This gave me an awareness of how my mind reacts the way it does. Helps you navigate your way through life.

Gemma manages to ask you thought-provoking questions which make you prioritise and process what's important to you. She is professional & friendly. At the end I am always feeling invigorated, refreshed and incredibly motivated

What others say about the workshops...

It's hard to put into words how much I benefited from the strength training with Gemma! I walked away feeling fully ready to approach everything I do in a different way, a more thoughtful way. And now I understand myself in a way like never before. It's invigorating!

This approach had changed my perception of myself and the way that I relate with my daughter. It is a change of perspective and language that opens a new channels of more effective communication

I wanted a reset button to re-find myself. Gemma helped me accomplish all of this and more. Her positivity and honesty enabled me to move past the trailing spouse, wife, and mom labels. Now, I am using my strengths daily; my family is communicating better and we are having more laughter. This course has been a game-changer in my expatriate life.

Kristen Carpenter

I used to be self-critical and now I remind myself of my unique strengths and try to approach life from that point of view. I was very impressed with strength training as it focussed on my positives and encouraged me to shift my perspective.

Farizeh Salahuddin

Doing the training in a group environment has really brought it home to me how different peoples characters and strengths are and that actually it’s great to be surrounded by such contrasting and dynamic people.

Thanks again Gemma to leading the way to all the “light bulb” moments!

I was finally giving myself permission to actually be my Strengths, own them, and stop downplaying them. There were so many "A-ha" moments during the training.

The Group sessions are also invaluable, for giving you insight into the nature of other people's Strengths. Its made me less judgemental, towards both myself and others, hence close relationships of all natures can only benefit.

What others say about this course


I just completed a group course and now so aware of why different family members behave in certain ways, and why I react the way that I do. I've become much more compassionate and am slower to react to former annoyances. Thank you Gemma for this clarity!

Melissa McCloud


My first ever coaching experience has been very helpful in learning how to control my defensive attitude.
