Why work with me?
Sometimes I wonder what I would be like if I hadn’t thrown myself into self healing and personal development at a young age and continued to learn, apply and teach the most powerful principles along the way. I have had my fair share of ‘little t’ trauma, complexity and emotional upheaval – as I’m sure you have too – I know for sure that it is not what happens to us, but how we choose to alchemise our experience, which creates our relationships, careers and health.
Time is certainly a good healer, however time on its own does not ensure you resolve and change destructive behaviour patterns. In order to create new, soul satisfying experiences we need to learn, grow and do the inner work. Otherwise we eat, sleep, rave, repeat – and the cycle continues. You know that friend that has the SAME toxic relationship again and again and again with different guys? Voila!
Coaching, healing and intuitive work has its place at the centre of every area of life and we usually realise we need help when don’t have what we most want or we are in pain. For example creating the income you need to live the lifestyle you want or healing from a broken relationship. This work, and my coaches, healers and mentors, have been game changing for me and allowed to me heal, flourish, succeed, fail, learn from the failures, come back stronger and more loving.
My wish for you is that you receive the guidance and support you need in this moment to be inspired, take the practical steps and stay the course to bring your dreams into your reality.
I believe that we incarnate into the human experience to learn deep soul lessons. Hands up if you feel like you’ve been non-stop learning…yup, me too!
The brief overview of my story comprises:
- 4 parents (2 x step parents)
- 3 siblings (a million aunts, uncles and cousins)
- beautiful friends
- made in Zimbabwe/ London (with stops in Germany, Australia, South Africa, Cornwall)
- 1 Psychology degree
- 1 marriage
- 1 divorce
- 1 emotional breakdown
- 1 autoimmune disease
- so many businesses (lost count!)
- 2 engagements (currently engaged to my gorgeous fiancee)
- 2 cats (my whole heart)
I’m very empathic and intuitive, which are wonderful gifts and also terrible curses. Living in the world is a challenge as someone who is extra sensitive and with all the feels. It makes me excellent at what I do, but challenges me to structure my life in a way that works for me e.g. a lot of space and time alone is required, along with iron clad boundaries.
Self love is a big one for me, it has been a huge lesson in my soul education and I believe it is fundamental to living a joyful, fulfilling life.
I am very much still learning, as we all are, anyone tells you different – run in the other direction! Teachers, coaches and guides are a few steps ahead of you on the path, they know a little more, they’ve seen a little more and they can hold your hand as you move along your journey. My life has been massively messy at times, especially at the end of my marriage, and I like to be open about it because shame is insidious and holds us hostage emotionally and otherwise.
These days I live in my beautiful London home with my fiancee and Max the cat. One of the best things about this chapter of my life is my family and closest friends live so close! I run two businesses, this one and a Marketing Consultancy business. Some of my favourite things are walks in nature, swimming in the sea, cuddles with my kitty & my love, excellent TV shows (Ozark, Homeland, Away, This Is Us…), smoothies, yoga (I recently tried SUP yoga – love!), kirtan (chanting), EFT Tapping, visioning and co-creating my life with my intuition as my guide.

‘Since I have been speaking to Gemma regularly I can honestly say that my whole life is shifting in a way that I didn’t think was possible for me. She is a very special and inspirational lady, I look forward to our sessions and hearing her unique and articulate views on the world and the way it can work for us. I used to think things happened to me and now I know I can learn to live my life my way. Thanks to Gemma. My life is only getting better from here on. Don’t hesitate. Get some Gemma Ford in your life today!’
‘With Gemma’s guidance I have achieved things that I barely thought possible. Literally. Gemma is wise, practical and speaks from experience when it comes to achieving exactly what you want. If you never thought you were going to get that book written or land that dream job then think again. She rewrites the world as you thought you knew it.It’s a financial investment worth every penny. Sometimes in your life you need another perspective to achieve what you really want. For me, it was Gemma.’
“Gemma is an amazing life coach. She has a calm and soothing presence about her that instantly made me feel at ease and comfortable to talk about anything I had on my mind. She is extremely positive and understanding, and you can’t help but feel empowered after a conversation with her. I would recommend Gemma to anyone who is considering life coaching sessions, or even just looking to get a better idea of who they are and why it is they feel and experience things the way they do. I love her!”
