Finding Focus

Is the life that you’re currently living the one that you dreamed of?

Private coaching in Houghton-le-Spring

Do you have so much more than you want to contribute, create and experience?
Everything you need to change is inside you already and I can help you find it.

What We Do

Taking the first step to talk about your life and the changes you want to make can be daunting. I can challenge you to overcome limiting beliefs about yourself, which may be holding you back, and bring out your confidence and self-esteem.

Every memory you’ve ever had from the day you were born is stored in your unconscious mind. This is where change happens, at an unconscious level.

We can delve to the root of the problem and if we do that, we can identify your limiting beliefs that may be holding you back, holding you in the past and contributing to you feeling stressed, anxious or depressed.

We offer a free telephone consultation before booking to discuss how we can help. What have you got to lose, apart from old problems?

What happens if you do nothing? What happens if you decide to do something and make a change?

What Is NLP?

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) utilises coaching and hypnosis techniques to help you permanently change the way you think and feel about yourself or things affecting or impacting upon your life. It allows you to change your perception on life.

Here’s an example: someone may fear flying. It’s not flying or the aircraft that they are afraid of, they are scared of crashing. Someone who is not scared of flying may be thinking about their destination and for them, it is not a terrifying experience. NLP allows you to change how you think about a situation.

NLP and hypnosis techniques allows you to tap into your unconscious mind, identifying specific memories and reprogram the way you feel about them


Gemma has a PhD in Neuroscience and Genetics. Combined with extensive knowledge of NLP and hypnosis, she has a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the mind, how it develops and how it works.

Gemma had spent her working life at the forefront of gene editing research, helping to change peoples lives, but she knew that something was missing. Falling into a dark place, it was time to do something about it.

While looking for answers, she found NLP. Having experienced it first hand, she knew that this was something that she could do to make a fundamental difference in peoples lives.
