“My experience with thrive’s mind body reset retreat was nothing more than life changing! Gemma’s in-depth knowledge of functional medicine is impressive, but teaching this knowledge from a heart level with intuition compassion and warmth is what makes her gift extraordinary. Donna’s intuitive, spiritual and  psychological alchemy is truly transformative. 

The two of these powerful heart centered women working together created a healing environment that exceeded my expectation and truly shifted my reality on a deep level! It was a week I will never forget and for which I am exceedingly grateful for! The beautiful son rullan resounds with a deep sense of the historical spirituality of the monks who resided there which was palpable. The amazing cooking of Grace Barrow of Patiki Beach in pt soller was beyond delicious and healthy and her love of sharing her gift is tasted in every bite! And the beautiful spiritual heart centered jivamukti yoga teacher, Lily X took my yoga practice to a new depth of spirituality where i was able to surpass the physical and feel the deep spiritual teachings of the original yogic practice. In a world where yoga has been so westernized and physically based, this was a deeply healing experience for me. 


The energy and container these beautiful women held for us all was just exceptional. And the other attendees were part of the energy created as well, making this the best retreat i have ever been to and a week I will always be grateful for! There were amazing connections made and cannot wait to return again next year! Thank you all for what you brought to this experience!”Carla Cuthbertson

Health has many layers and my passion is to empower patients to use the intelligence of nature and science to transform their health & restore their inherent vitality.  Functional medicine, nutrition & naturopathy are a beautiful eclectic combination, encouraging the body’s natural self healing mechanisms. It is the interconnectedness of body, mind, emotions, social factors and the environment that determine human health. You could say I am half science geek half earth mother with a heavy dose of good old Irish humility & humour. It is a joy and a privilege to be part of an individuals return to health & vitality, I am delighted to be a constant student of our biology our humanness and our planet. Functional medicine addresses the whole person not just an isolated set of symptoms, it determines how and why illness/symptoms occur and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. We look upstream to consider the complex web of interactions in the patients history, physiology and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic make up of each patient is considered along with the internal -mind/body/spirit and external -physical, social & environmental factors that affect bodily function  “Learn to deal with the valleys, the hills will take care of themselves” In Functional Medicine we have the ability to deep dive into the biochemistry using the latest laboratory functional diagnostic testing to identify & address imbalances before diseased states can occur – Prevention is key! I run a busy Naturopathic Nutrition clinic in The New Forest and regularly hold clinics in London along with my online consultations. I am also a wellness speaker & educator, co founding Mind. Body. Reset with my incredible colleague in healing Donna Grant. We seek to find sacred spaces all over the world to connect & rejuvenate.  I am especially interested in areas of gut health, female hormone health, autoimmunity & chronic fatigue.
