Dr Gemma Luke
Gemma is a clinical psychologist at the London Psychiatry Clinic and 200-hour qualified yoga teacher who has worked in the mental health field for over 20 years.
Gemma creatively combines psychotherapy and mind-body techniques to enhance people’s confidence, self-esteem, and resilience. Her individualised approach empowers you with knowledge and skills that support you to face future challenges in your personal and professional life.
During workshops, she explores and enhances your understanding of how psychological difficulties can manifest physically, teaches grounding techniques that regulate the nervous system, and helps you become more in tune with the physical sensations that provide insight into your unconscious mind.
Gemma is passionate about promoting positive mental health and strives to work holistically with both mind and body to help people achieve lasting change and lead more fulfilling lives.
