Feedback from courses run:


"Thank you Jemma, I found the sessions extremely informative and feel confident about using some of your techniques and methods in school."


"We are very fortunate to have Jemma and the AUTUS organization in our part of the country. Jemma has the theory to provide the reasoning, but as a practitioner she can back this up with experience, which make it all so interesting, relevant and informative. plus she listens!"
