About The Peer Coach

I’m Gemma, The Peer Coach, and I’m on a mission to help more professionals like you discover your authentic confidence.

My motto: no more faking it!

The Peer Coach Headshot

My background

I qualified as one of the youngest ever Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapists back in 2010, and through the years I have found that the people who are drawn to working with me are those looking for someone who “just gets it”.

I’ve spent 14 years working in the corporate world and charity sector, and have met hundreds of amazing professionals along the way who are held back by a lack of confidence.

Often these people are hugely talented and damn good at their jobs but they don’t have the belief in themselves to really show up and be seen. Or they fake confidence to get by and feel crap about it at the end of each day. This impacts their job prospects, their work satisfaction and their happiness.

And believe me, I know how that feels!

I get where you’re at

I’ve been in that meeting and not spoken up, only to find someone else get the credit for the same idea I had.

I’ve felt that burning feeling in my face when I feared being caught out as not good enough.

I’ve felt that disappointment in myself for not seizing opportunities that would have required me to step up.

I’ve become that perfectionist for fear of making a single mistake which would highlight my flaws.

So I tried the “fake it till you make it” approach and it left me feeling exhausted, unsatisfied and unhappy. I knew there had to be a better way.

I discovered my authentic confidence

Through embracing Cognitive Hypnotherapy I did a big inside job on my own self confidence, which in turn boosted my self esteem. I learned how to become confident in a way I could enjoy, both in and out of the work place. And that was too good to keep to myself.

So, I became a therapist and coach to help my peers to discover their own authentic confidence, and for me it’s the best job in the world.

I use a blend of disciplines including coaching, hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming and positive psychology to offer cutting-edge confidence programmes which really make a difference.

I work with professionals on a 1:1 basis, as well as delivering masterclasses and international workshops. The results still blow me away and I’d love to help you discover your authentic confidence.

I certainly enjoyed discovering mine!

“The sessions with Gemma changed my life. Gemma was able to unlock my mental blockers and help me to process feelings of being a fraud and lacking confidence. After each session I walked out a little taller and I now feel ready to take on anything that my new role throws at me!”
