WHO I AM
Hey, I'm Gemma.
Most days you'll find me working in my home office with our rescue hound at my feet - sipping on a big old mug of tea. I believe in living in a seasonal, sustainable and heart-led way.
I also believe (know) that when we stop living how we think we are supposed to, slow down, and actually tune in to what we really want - we can create a life that is in alignment with what’s most important to us.
My vision? I'm here to help women step off the merry-go-round, rediscover and reconnect with who they are and cultivate simple practices to support their self-care. I’m also on a mission to inspire and empower others to live a more natural and sustainable lifestyle.
If we were meeting for a cuppa, I'd probably tell you what I'm growing in our veg garden, how essential oils have changed my life and where I'm planning on travelling to next with my love, Greg. I thrive on deep, soulful and authentic connection.
I live in a village in South Yorkshire with my man, 2 lovely step-teenagers and our rescue hound Florence.
HOW I GOT HERE
The story so far.
7 years ago, I found myself about to embark on a new step in my corporate career, in a new country. I should have been excited, but I wasn't. I was terrified, depressed and burnt out.
That's when it hit me...
I was never going to be happy because I was living out someone else's version of my life.
So, a week before I was to board the plane to a new life in the Middle East, I quit my job, ended my toxic relationship, and packed up my apartment. I had no plan, just a deep inner knowing that there had to be a better way.
I was right.
It didn’t happen overnight, but slowly I began to rebuild my life around the things that I valued most. I stopped chasing the traditional definition of success and instead cultivated a slower pace of life. Somewhere along the journey, I began to rediscover and reconnect with who I am. I created space that allowed me to tap into my creativity and inner wisdom.
These days my life is centred around living in a slow, seasonal, sustainable and intentional way and supporting others to do the same.
