What people say

About me

Hi, I’m Gem, the founder of SCB.

I want to help people figure out self care for themselves, the way I did for myself. As someone with chronic mental and physical illnesses I know that self care isn’t always pretty or instagram worthy.

My tools and coaching is designed to help people at any point in their self care journey, and make their self care work for them, regardless of their life circumstances.

As a trainee therapist, I start from empathy, kindness, and trust. You know your life better than anyone else, and I’ll help you navigate this journey.
