Testimonial by Elaine Mok

“Jem’s niche truly lies in trauma work. My first session with him occured at a time when I was exploring other forms of therapy outside of talk therapy. Ultimately, my consultation with Jem felt like a thread that fit into the larger tapestry of self-work I’d started. I even formulated a very specific question, “What is my relationship with pressure?”, and Jem was able to excavate repressed connections that stretched back to my upbringing. Although the session was only an hour long, it felt longer due to the sheer amount of information packed into it. Yet, I never felt overwhelmed at any point. Jem is careful to mediate and pitch what he says to the client’s level.
