Who am I, really?
What does it mean to be authentic? Who is my true self?
If you have ever asked yourself these questions, you are not alone.
We're told to 'Just be yourself', but it isn't always that simple.
We learn, from a young age, to 'fit in', to conform and this gets in the way of us trusting ourselves. At some point, we lose connection with ourselves, what we like, what we don't like, what brings us joy or even our own opinions. Living an authentic life, means living with a lightness of heart. It means accepting all that you are without judgement. It ultimately means being free.
Scenarios that may lead you to question (or want to look deeper into) your authentic self:
When reconnecting with your goals and dreams
When faced with major life events - changing job, having a family, relationship breakdowns, losing a family member
When a changing situation places your values/behaviour in conflict (restructure at work, parenting children, work culture)
When in an environment where you are the minority
Whether you want to explore your authentic self, or understand the barriers (internal and external) that may be preventing you from embracing and accepting who you really are, I invite you to join me for 'The Gold In You' so that you can move forward in a way that is more aligned with your true self.
'The Gold In You' is a chance to pause and take time to reflect on who you are (not who you think you should be). It is a time to see that you are worthy, you are uniquely wonderful - just as you are.
I offer a chance to reconnect in a calm space. To connect to others. To spend time looking inwards. To experience coaching and guided reflection in a group of like-minded people. Oh and nourishing food in a gorgeous local setting! This intimate, one day event takes place at the inspirational local setting of The Lodge, Duxford and will provide you with the essential time you need to take a pause, treat yourself and find The Gold In You.

"It was a wonderful day of insightful activities, journaling and connecting with a lovely group of people. Gemma was warm and supportive, and guided us through the day at a perfect pace to ensure we got lots from the content of the session but also a chance to share and connect as a group. I left feeling re-energised, refocused and inspired to make changes in order to make my wellbeing a priority and I'm already reaping the benefits."
"I don't often settle easily in a group. I can get a bit anxious. Gemma settled me, and everyone attending, into a calm and confidential space very quickly. The dynamic of attendees was testament to Gemma's gentle nature. I learnt so much about myself (I am not alone in the difficult and the good stuff), and ways of calming my thoughts and rebalancing my behaviours, away from age old reactions. Coming together with people I don't know and going away as part of something was very powerful."
