Welcome to Human Brilliance Limited, founded by the passionate and vibrant Gemma Wardell. With over 20 years of experience in mental health and wellbeing, Gemma's journey has been shaped by overcoming both physical and mental health challenges.
Gemma firmly believes in the immense power of the mind and the profound impact our thoughts and emotions have on our experiences.
Gemma's credentials include being a UKCP accredited Psychotherapist, a Trainer, Transactional Analyst, an NLP Master Practitioner, a Coach, and a Supervisor. Her expertise extends to certifications in Educational Transactional Analysis and Organisational Psychology. Gemma's dedication to her work and her commitment to improving lives and communities are evident in everything she does. She is a strong advocate of the 'ripple effect,' where even small positive changes can create far-reaching and significant transformations.
Drawing from her past experience as a Director of a CIC, Gemma understands the challenges faced by both teams and individuals. She takes joy from supporting people to become the best version of themselves.
Recently, I asked some of my colleagues and friends to describe me in a few words. They used words like energetic, funny, full of life, creative, nurturing, supportive, challenging, and dynamic. It struck me that, for a significant part of my life (I'm in my 40s now), I struggled to fully embrace and express these aspects of myself. I worried about being too much, too loud, too bossy, or too forward. To adapt to societal expectations, I unconsciously made myself small (ironically, I'm only 5feet tall). However, through my personal journey of recovery, self-development, and professional training, I learned to unleash my own potential and become the best version of myself. Now, I feel utterly privileged to do the work I do. There's nothing more fulfilling than supporting others in realising their strengths, growing, and creating an inner sense of confidence they can carry into the world with pride.
At Human Brilliance, we believe in cultivating brilliance in our own teams too. We are currently seeking passionate and dedicated practitioners, including Psychotherapeutic Counsellors, Psychotherapists, and Coaches, who use a blended approach in their work. If you are a people person driven by a genuine desire to make a difference, and want to work with people who genuinely care about exploring your own potential, we’d love to hear from you!
