Based on the latest psychological research, the Healthy Minds series of presentations are focused on empowering individuals to prevent psychological disorders and improve mental wellbeing.

Why is mental health so important?

Mental health issues affect one third of the population, mental health struggles are the leading cause of disease, and poor mental health is the number one cause of disability claims.

Now, more than ever, a proactive and preventative approach to mental health is essential. Research shows, organizations who attend to their employees mental health have better workplace culture, reduced turnover, greater engagement, and higher levels of productivity.

I have had the pleasure of working with Gemma on a number of corporate/ employee wellness sessions. She has a true passion for helping others and it shows! We have hired her to present on a number of mental health topics to employee groups working in all types of industries, and we have received nothing but raving reviews. Not only is Gemma an excellent psychologist, but she is also an incredible speaker; she has a very unique way of talking about mental health in a way that is engaging, interactive, relatable and enjoyable. Gemma is always very prepared, flexible, and brings resourceful handouts for everyone. I would highly recommend her services to companies looking to educate and inspire their employees to live a healthier, happier life!

Health Minds is a series of evidence-based presentations, designed to develop emotional intelligence by teaching psychological skills that lead to mental health within individuals and organizations.

Each talk is designed to focused on a specific psychological theme –

Optimized Mind

Explore tools and techniques to optimize your mind and your life. In this discussion, we’ll explore what the science says about the routines that support a healthy, well-functioning brain and we’ll learn how to establish a high-performance mindset.  

Focused Mind

Overwhelm is real. The relentless pace of life and the always-on nature of the digital world has dropped our attention span down to just a few seconds. A scattered mind negatively affects productivity, heath, and family stability. In Focused Mind, we’ll explore practical tools for reclaiming your ability to focus on what matters most.

Resilient Mind

What would it be like if you knew, without a doubt, you could handle anything that came your way?  We can’t always avoid difficult situations, but we can develop the skills to navigate the ups and downs of life so we can thrive during difficult times. Resilient Mind is about coping with stress in a healthy way, learning how to manage challenging emotions effectively, and building confidence and competence by expanding your comfort zone.

Worthy Mind

What does it mean to move from I’m not good enough to I am enough? How do we engage with ourselves, others, and the world from a place of healthy self-worth? In Worthy Mind, we will explore how to walk through the fear of not being good enough and to stand solidly in inherent worthiness.

Aligned Mind

Have you ever struggled with feeling like you’re fighting yourself?  Self-sabotage happens when there’s a battle between the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious levels of the mind. In Aligned Mind, you’ll discover the three levels of your mind so you can harness the power of mental alignment to support you in moving towards your dreams and goals. 

Stress-Proof Mind

Stress is part of life. But, we can learn how to recognize stress before it spirals out of control and to implement healthy strategies for managing it. In Stress-Proof Mind we’ll explore how to help yourself and others improve their mental well-being during times of stress so you can avoid burnout and return to being your best self.

Present Mind

You’ve probably heard about how great mindfulness and meditation are, but integrating these practices into daily life can be a challenge. Where to begin? In Present Mind we’ll explore the science behind mindfulness, why it’s so important for mental health, and practical processes for living in the present moment.

Authentic Mind

Beyond the masks you wear and roles you play, who are you? Discover the different between your true self and your constructed self in Authentic Mind. When we know our authentic self, it’s easier to feel a sense of purpose. When we connect into our core values, it’s easier to feel comfortable and confident making decisions and finding direction. Your sense of aliveness at work and in life comes from your authenticity.
