Chris & Filly are joined by the beautiful soul & transformational coach, Gemma Hanley.

You’re going to love this beautiful, raw and authentic convo. 


About Gemma Hanley

Gemma guides driven and high achieving women who struggle with anxiety, perfectionism and resistance to discover happiness, confidence and calm from within themselves. 

Her coaching strategy is heavily informed from her own 23 year journey of holistically healing panic attacks, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Through her coaching work, Gemma is here to create a movement where every woman knows that painful emotions and a dis-regulated nervous system is the body’s communication system, asking her to pay attention to something that is deeply important to her. That her pain is not wrong or here by chance, it’s a signal of where she needs to come into deeper connection with herself.


In today’s episode, Gemma talks to Chris & Filly about:


  • Gemma’s incredible story of overcoming 23 years of debilitating anxiety and chronic fatigue
  • Deeper root-causes of Gemma’s body burnout: perfectionism and people pleasing patterns created as a child, that created unsafety and dysregulated her nervous system 
  • Gemma’s pathway to healing: bucket-load of medical specialists, nutrition, yoga, mindset and emotional healing
  • We chat to Gemma about her coaching practice, and why she chose transformational coaching specifically to be her healing tool to help other women make big changes
  • Why emotions - even negative ones - are never “bad”
  • How to create deep self-connection through listening to painful emotions and physical symptoms
  • The importance on creating boundaries and communicating them to others
