HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER

My coaching approach is based on the recognition that our development as adults is associative and fluid rather than linear and fixed which means under the right conditions, growth potential is boundless. I focus on reflecting you back to you in ways you've never seen yourself—illuminating hidden truths. We experiment to identify effective methods for your healing and growth to weave you an evolved Web of Well-Being™. Whether you choose individual, couples, group coaching, or all three, your sessions (via Zoom) will include experiential learning opportunities to gently stretch you during sessions, in between, and beyond.  We'll co-create a safe place for your truth to land so you can get curious, gain clarity, and consciously create your new reality.

I'm not the kind of coach who focuses on weekly to-do lists while neglecting your internal development. For one, surface level behavioral shifts don't lead to sustained transformation and two, managing to-do lists is pretty boring...for both of us. My interdisciplinary coaching process focuses on resourcing you as you integrate the awareness you gain with growth practices to nourish you and your relationships—reconnecting you with and evolving your true self.

Super Session

The 90 minute Super Session is a focused transformational coaching session. Show up with an identified area for growth, a challenge you're ready to face or a project you want to take action on. After we define what progress would mean for you and what you want to learn, we'll explore your resources, discuss navigating potential blocks to success, identify your growth areas and collaborate on a process. Clarity, expanded self-knowledge, growth-fostering practices, and a personalized plan will guide you towards achieving desired results.  

Your Super Session will be via Zoom and is followed by three weekly email check-ins (if desired) to keep you focused, and on-track with your growth.

Individual Coaching

We'll meet via Zoom in one-on-one 60 minute sessions to design a personalized process as you develop:

  • self-anchoring techniques (integrating bottom-up and top-down processes)

  • a deeper understanding of how you've been shaped, who you are at your core, and who you want to become

  • embodied awareness and practices to facilitate healing and healthy connection to self

  • polyvagal informed techniques to identify nervous system states, the sensations, emotions, and narratives of those states, and how to navigate them

  • practices to release tension and strengthen your relaxation response

  • an understanding of thoughts, beliefs, internal conflicts, and adaptive behaviors that have been governing your behavior

  • processes for sensing, feeling, thinking, and behaving to enhance your well-being

  • healthy responses to stressors with conscious emotional, mental, and somatic flexibility and resilience

  • communication with your inner guidance system—self-understanding, clarity, and trust

  • an ever-evolving plan to achieve your personal, relational and professional goals

  • skills to resolve internal blocks and integrate mind, body and soul

  • an effective reflection process to expand self and relational awareness

Couple Coaching

We may be wired to thrive in meaningful connection and love, yet if you weren’t taught how to foster true connection, how to sustain it, how to set and honor boundaries, how to identify relational distress, how to respond to it effectively, what love is, what love isn’t, how to nourish love, how to stop harming it—and that’s just for starters—is it any wonder you're challenged in your primary relationship?

 

The most effective way to increase the quality and pleasure in your relationships is to broaden your personal and relational knowledge while developing related skills.

"Relationships flourish when the responsibility for nourishing the connection is
shared." 

                 Here’s the good news:

  • Relational intelligence is learnable and expandable.

  • Your neurobiology supports your ability to learn and evolve throughout your life.

  • The more you learn to cultivate connection, the more your relationships improve, and the more fulfilled you are.

  • Identifying what you desire as well as how to move towards your desires will help pull you through the discomfort of change.

  • The quality of your relationship requires interdependence but your personal and relational growth is not dependent upon your partner’s.

We'll collaborate in 90 minute sessions via Zoom as you gain knowledge in:

  • developing thinking and behavior that fosters connection

  • releasing thinking and behavior that leads to prolonged disconnection

  • closing relational intelligence growth gaps between partners

  • developmental goals for each partner and for the relationship

  • conditions and practices that support learning and love

  • resolving internal conflicts that inhibit development

  • integrative practices for self and mutual regulation

  • self-protection mode vs connection mode and how to navigate both with maturity

  • self-soothing and compassion practices

  • increasing your relational intelligence

  • how to manage and honor differences

  • root cause of relational conflicts

  • skills for healthy conflict

  • cultivating multiple pathways to intimacy

  • anchoring in self while discovering other

Sweet Spot Group Sessions

Cultivating a sense of connection and support in community is vital to our well-being. Sweet Spot group sessions are designed to foster shared experiences of exploration, discovery, inspiration, healing, and joy as we grow together within the warmth, presence, and encouragement of each other. Group sessions are open and ongoing—you decide when and how often you join the group based on your needs and wants. We'll meet via Zoom for 75 minutes each week. During each session,  I'll support both personal and collective growth by weaving in coaching as members share stories, pain points, knowledge, strengths, desires, dreams, healing, and inspiration.

Re-awaken treasured aspects of your authentic self as you:

  • receive heartfelt wisdom and guidance from a community whose members value curiosity, courage, compassion, and connection

  • identify your dreams, desires, values, needs, and wants as well as the practices to effectively respond to them

  • become more fluent in the sensing, feeling, thinking, and behaving that fosters resilience, adaptability, growth, ease, peace, and joy

  • empower yourself and others by offering your gifts and strengths

  • tune in to your internal compass to develop clarity, self-trust, and understanding

The Coaching Experience

“Jemma is by far the best coach I could have asked for. Beyond being wise, warm and supportive, she has a coaching style that's fun (I laughed a ton with her) and creative. She worked with me to bring forward my gifts while helping me discover areas where I could further develop in order to create what have felt like major miracles in my life. We designed assignments and practices that expanded my self-awareness and my skill set, both for my internal development and for achieving my external goals. My partnership with her had a huge impact on the way I rebound from setbacks and take action.”

-Karin V.

" I was led to Jemma by a friend of mine who kept singing her praises. At the time, I was struggling with some imposter syndrome, burn-out, and dysfunctional dynamics on my team. I knew within the first ten minutes of speaking with Jemma that she was someone I could learn from and trust. She asked me clever questions that allowed me to see clearly where we could focus the coaching process to change my situation. Jemma's enthusiasm is infectious and her belief in me was what I needed to push past fear and self-doubt. My self-trust, communication skills and how I respond to stressful situations have improved dramatically. I often hear Jemma's voice in my head cheering me on and asking me questions that open up alternate perspectives and solutions.

- Matthew R.

“I came to Jemma feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and scared. I knew I wasn't happy with my job nor my marriage at the time yet I was confused about what I wanted. After consultation calls with a number of coaches I chose her because I immediately felt understood. She introduced me to practical techniques for stress management and self-care, while also helping me recognize the courage, confidence and desire for more within me. I was able to take the initially terrifying leap towards a whole new career which has changed my life. Jemma's intuition and clever insight opened my eyes to aspects of my thinking and behavior that had been limiting my success. Coaching with her helped me believe in myself and feel a greater sense of my worth. I also notice that I recover from a tough day much faster. ”
