WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

DIANA

Sarnia, Canada

...despite her status as an internationally renowned author and scholar, when I reached out to Dr. Tosh to say how much I appreciated her work, what I found was a warm, compassionate, and approachable person, who goes above and beyond to support ALL women.

LAURA

Manchester, UK

Jem helped to give me desperately needed confidence in my work, and light a passion for the more creative and social side of psychology. She became, and remains, a bit of a role model to me, and it was simply a privilege to meet her.

KERRIE

London, UK

Jem Tosh went beyond her remit to give me an excellent education: a fearless woman who doesn't back down from bullies; showed me my own worth and didn't allow me to believe there are limits on what I'm capable of. An actual role model who truly changed my world...
