When the app is ready, it will be recommended as your source of information that will navigate you to charities, organisations that will assist you in your particular dilemma. If you just want a chat, then my number is the one to call. We can talk about your goals and how you are going to achieve them. The work is down to you but I am always your guide. Let us connect, to establish assistance.

Of course, my books will help. I suggest you familiarise yourselves with those and take note of the stories embedded in the trilogy.

Coaching and Mentoring - For longer term connection and a much more in-depth support package, I am charging these charges. Anyone else doing this kind of work must have referrals from me. I am safeguarding my clients, team members as much as I possibly can. Do not carry out Assist Angel work on behalf of Jemma Stone unless I have contacted you first and requested your support to help someone who has contacted me. Of course, carry on carrying out your own work in your own name and charging your own prices but not as an Assist Angel. If you are an established Practitioner then continue to practise within under you own name. If you want me to refer suitable clients to you, then contact me.

My Service will: Remove psychological blockages, deal with trauma, shapeshift energy, transform your life and being, healing yourself from within with my support.
