MORE ABOUT OUR GUEST
Gemma is "The Friend Coach". By her mid-twenties Gemma had ditched a lot of 'fake' non-fulfilling friends and was ready to find new friends but had no idea where to start. She decided to take herself on a journey through a friend project. Throughout her project and her honesty of talking to others, it turns out she wasn’t alone. A lot of other women by their mid-twenties were ready for a friend overhaul and just weren’t sure how to go about it. Howtomakefriends.co.uk was born.
