I Started out as a personal trainer and discovered there was so much more to health and happiness than just the physical, I enjoyed looking at clients as a whole, 'holisticially'. Mind, body and emotions are all part of health & happiness. I'm facinated with the power of the mind and helping people to rediscover their happiness and zest for life.
What do I do at Hidden Gem?
Over the last few years i've been working with many clients from various backgrounds with differening issues, such as anxiety, stress and depression.
Often people feel lost, unbalanced and unhappy. Stressors in life take over and it's quite common to feel overwhelmed or out of control, I work with the client to facillitate their healing on a mental and emotional level and help guide them back to feeling great again.
You're supposed to feel great in this life and sometimes you just need a little assistance.
Recently I've branched off into working with addictions and cravings for both food and smoking and had huge success with this, focusing on the hidden emotions involved in these behaviours.
With my work, I use my 'toolbox' (as I call it) of holistic therapies to help each client individually, depending on what combination i think would help and suit them best.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is non-invasive and gentle yet very powerful. A treatment is said to feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. It is not an alternative to conventional medicines but can be used to compliment the healing process.
Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming and Thought Field Therapy. During an EFT session, the client will focus on a specific issue while tapping on "end points of the body's energy meridians". It is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease.
Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems.
The EFT tapping techniques are a series of astoundingly fast and easy processes can help just about anyone to achieve genuine freedom from the emotions that have created problems in their lives. These techniques have been described by some as one of the most important breakthroughs in the area of psychology in this century. They have been used successfully with thousands of people with a broad range of difficulties.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT has been shown to help with many different types of problems. These include: anxiety, depression, panic, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), stress, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and psychosis. CBT may also help if you have difficulties with anger, a low opinion of yourself or physical health problems, like pain or fatigue.
How does it work?
CBT can help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you.
'I recently completed my 6 week rebalance course with Gemma, I can't thank her enough, this was exactly what I needed, I found the course whilst i'd been signed off work with stress, felt completely overwhelmed and like my life had gone spiralling out of control. Now I feel completely differently, I feel calm and back in control, i'm happier and what's more I now have the tools be be responsible for my own happiness thanks to the course. I really can't recommend it enough, I feel like the old me again and my partner and colleagues have noticed the difference too.., Thanks you really are a Hidden Gem' TM
‘The whole experience was game changing. It has really been a big part in a bigger picture. It's hard to really put words to what I felt to be honest but thank you. It gave me the reassurance that I needed that I'm on the right path. I wasn't really aware that my intuition was strong.. So I've been listening out for it more and it is so empowering. It has felt so hard trying to be strong and to move forward with something that takes all my energy. But now this is experience has taught me what I want and I am grateful for that but it's been a hard lesson. The universe has just been handing out gifts at every turn it's been so exciting. And I'm finding the right spiritual and open people along the way that have been a part of that’ . AG
This is an excellent course, I would recommend it to anyone searching for more meaning in their lives and a closer spiritual connection. Whilst on the course I experienced past life and out of body dreams. I also feel a deeper connection to myself and my life path. Letting Gemma take care of your energy centres gives you a real boost in everything else you do in life. Thankyou.' CE
'I have just completed this course with Gemma. I cannot recommend it enough. It really makes you aware of who you are, and all your surroundings. After each session I would feel calm and relaxed, with a strong sense of wellbeing! Gemma has a very happy outlook on life, and that is really felt in every session. I will continue to have Reiki with her' JG
I didn't know why I signed up for this course, my only previous experience of reiki had been a bit overwhelming but I did it anyway. On completion of my sessions I truly believe in the statement 'life always gives us the teacher we need at any moment' I had been excelling in some areas of my life and others that were a bit painful had just been brushed to one side. The sessions with Gemma achieved results I did not expect or think possible. The combination if reiki, EFT and CBT enabled me to identify and let go if things causing underlying stress and anxiety. Sometimes I cried, others I laughed and on days felt exhausted but now I am stronger, more positive and more focused. Gemma was definitely the 'teacher' I needed and I will be forever thankful for her wisdom, non-judgemental approach and kind positive nature. Each day I can put what I have learnt to use, the effects far exceed 6 weeks!' SL
'Testimonial on EFT - This therapy and Gemma's patient and caring guidance helped me quit my 15 year smoking habit. This is the only therapy that really gets to the root of the emotional problem allowing you to free yourself from any addiction fully and permanently.
Thank you so much Hidden Gem.' HC
Delighted to have just had my first reiki session back with Gemma since her break. In her first podcast since returning Gemma talked about the need for everyone to have time with people who can uplift them. And that is exactly the effect she always has on me.
She is an extremely caring, supportive therapist and just a really lovely warm human being. After every treatment I leave feeling relaxed and that my energy centres have been balanced and boosted.
If you are reading Hidden Gem because you are considering visiting Gemma, I thoroughly recommend that you book an appointment straight away..' RR
‘I was grieving the loss of my best friend and this course was the gentle support I needed to find myself again and pull myself out of a very dark tunnel’ RP
‘Dear Gemma Haupt, thank you for your patience, wisdom, kindness and ongoing support. You have most certainly facilitated my happy ever after and I will be forever indebted’. SW
"I recently went from a 'Miss' to a 'Mrs' and leading up to the big day I knew I would find it hard to rest my mind and sleep. I asked Gemma if there was a remedy she could put together for me. I started taking the drops a couple of weeks before my wedding and there was definitely a difference in my sleep, I was not waking at 3am with a list going through my mind! Thank you gem’ GS
'For me this course has been life changing. Hard to imagine, i know, but true. I came to Gemma on the verge of going bck onto anti depressions and feeling lost, insecure and extremely low. I have had several major issues to deal with in the last year and was at my wits end. Using the tools provided on this course I have faced my fears, pushed them aside and am now in the happpiest place i've been for a long time. I have tuned the family business around, got a part time job (which includes retraining) and my outlook on life is great. I literally have faced my fears an now have complete control of my thoughts, feelings and mindset. Everything that happens in your past has a way of having an impact on your life now. Until you move on from that you will remain stagnent. I truely believe that Gemma has found her niche in life and being so passionate about her beliefs means that energy is transferred to the work she does with you. I cannot thank her enough' KH
I want to thank you sincerly for being the most wonderful supportive therapist I could ever wish to discover. The therepy sessions have helped to balance me , unscramble my mind, focus my thoughts, apppreciate others, forgive myself and others, I have opened my eyes to the power of gratitude and i am now learning to love myself. Without the tools you empowered me with and your wise and kind words all of this would not have been possible, I truely am grateful. JB
I have smoked on and off since I was 13 and I am now 27! I really wanted to give up and although I had really cut down, I just couldn't give up the habit (especially when drinking and with friends). After completing the Southend 10K (whilst a smoker) I decided I wanted to run a half marathon, but to achieve this I would need to finally bin the fags! Gemma was recommended to me by a friend, she made me feel very comfortable and I was able to talk to her about my addiction and feelings towards cigarettes and worked through EFT. I saw Gemma on the 2nd January and it's now the end of April and 6 weeks until my half marathon and I have not had one cigarette since my session. Although I have had cravings, my will to give up has been stronger and I honestly believe that my ONE session with Gemma helped me to achieve this. After many attempts to give up I final feel free from my addiction and would highly recommend Hidden Gem. LE
