Gemma Lee Taylor 

Program Facilitator

BCom BSc(Psy) Hons

Gemma established Resilience Kit when she saw the opportunity for children to benefit from participating in a short-term program designed to help children learn better ways to cope with life’s challenges. By learning strategies within the program outline over five sessions, children improve their ability to regulate their emotions, enhance helpful self-talk and develop constructive behaviours. Also, by involving parents in the process, parents also learn to apply new ways of improving their child’s executive functioning skills.
Gemma has a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Business Law) and Bachelor of Science (Psychology), with First Class Honours. Over the past few years, Gemma and the team have worked together to help children enhance their social and emotional intelligence in a fun way. She has run the Resilience Kit program in a group format for children and teenagers in Swanbourne, Cottesloe, Willagee, Joondalup and Rockingham.
Gemma now works directly with children and teenagers in the comfort of their own homes. She delivers the program to children and teenagers face-to-face on Saturdays and Sundays. She works individually with the child, or with multiple siblings at the same time.
